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+

Rough shifting from 1st into 2nd gear, especially when cold.
The vehicle continue to hesitate when started from standing still as if there is not enough fuel. If cuts out a few times. If I carefully modulate the accelerator pedal, it comes out of the jerky motion and then it is fine. No solution is found through the codes and MBUSA claims that this is normal. I find it unusual as it is quite repeatable while it happens only 20% of the times.

Very abrupt shift down if you hammer the throttle when already doing over 50 mph. Rough shift up from first to second and revs jump up in second gear as if a cluth was slipping.
I have similar issue car shakes violently shifting into 3rd.
