Vehicles equipped with a 7-speed automatic transmission may develop a rough shifting condition, most commonly going up from first to second gear and going down from third to second or second to first gear. Our technicians tell us this is due to an internal component failure. Mercedes has released updated parts; the transmission will need to be removed and disassembled to complete the necessary repairs.

2011 Mercedes-Benz R350 Reviews
I am actually in Canada near Toronto but the site wanted a US Zip code.
This is my second one. The first one was a 2006 that I traded in 2011 with 175km on it. Both are excellent cars. I agree the front end is too low as I have had to repair the bumper as well. The car is super comfortable, hugs the road very well - especially on a long trip, the seats are superb.
The biggest problem that I have is the dealer network. They verge on the criminal. Dealer routinely lie about repairs and overbill like crazy. I have now found a former Mercedes mechanic who has his own shop and I will take it to him for service.
My neighbour bought 2 Mercedes on my recommendation and came to me almost in tears after a couple of years of dealing with Mercedes dealerships.
I love the car and get a combined 10L/100 km (diesel) in mixed driving. Pretty good for a big car. Because of the dealer issues I think my next car will be something else. We'll see as I plan to keep this one til it hits 300,000 km.
The front end is so low to the ground every time I go in a drive way or out the bumper comes off?? Does anyone else have this problems>
