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.

i was coming from a red light onto an access road trying to build up speed for the highway, noticed that my RPM's were reving to 6000 but my speed was only 20 or so. had to pull off to the side, put the car in park and turn it off. once i did that, i had no problem with it going. this is the second time this has happened.

My CLK-350 "check engine" light is now on, transmission is stuck in second gear and will not shift. I recently had the conductor plate changed in the transmission...still no good. I have no idea what kind of expense I am looking at. I have heard it will cost me approximately $8,000 to replace the transmission. I am sick over this.
While driving my car I guess the gears shifted because the RPM was going into the 4 and 5 range while trying to make a turn onto the highway. Then realizing that I did not move the gear by mistake, my car would not go above 25 mph. When I finally got home it was a burnt rubber kind of smell coming from under the hood. The past few times I visited my local dealership and complained about the transmission jerking they said it was nothing. Now my car is in the shop waiting to be seen...
