Mercedes-Benz C350 ProblemsInternal Component Failure May Cause Rough Shifting
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.
The camshaft adjuster solenoid (which is related to the variable valve timing system) may fail or timing chain/balance shaft components may wear, resulting in illumination of the Check Engine Light and various drivability issues. Mercedes-Benz has released a service bulletin outlining specific repair instructions depending on fault codes stored.
Inside grab handles, the upholstery on the center console cover, and door trim panels can delaminate. Most commonly replacement of the affected part is necessary.

Mercedes-Benz C350 RecallsDriver's Frontal Air Bag Inflator Ruptures And Sprays Metal Fragments
The driver's frontal air bag inflator may deploy the air bag with excessive pressure, resulting in the inflator rupturing and causing metal debris to be sprayed onto vehicle occupants. Dealers will replace the driver's frontal air bag module free of charge to resolve the concern.
The air bag control unit may corrode and cause it to malfunction, resulting in air bags that deploy when not intended, or do not deploy at all in an accident. Dealers will inspect and replace the air bag control unit as needed free of charge to resolve the concern.
The tail lights of the vehicle may dim or fail because of a poor electrical ground connection. Dealers will replace the bulb holders if not previously updated and replace any corroded connectors free of charge to resolve the concern.
