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.Google+

When first starting out driving car shift jerk after 15MPH then jerks again when I start to slow down around the 15mph speed. I have a automatic so I guess it jerks coming out of 1st gear going to 2nd and downshifting out of 2nd to 1st before car comes to a complete stop
