Mercedes-Benz E350 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.
Lack of audio or cell phone functionality may be related to the failure of the audio gateway module.
A vibration felt through the center floor of the vehicle can be caused by driveshaft flex discs, which crack and shred, causing excessive driveshaft movement. Not repairing these can cause damage to the driveshaft center support bearing, or, in the worst case scenario, damage to the transmission or differential.

It is a recommendation from technician at the dealership to do this while replacing front springs/coils? Not sure if this is necessary. I was told it's recommended due to age of vehicle while doing the other work? Estimate given for shocks $877.60.
Springs/coils estimate $1,301.20
When one spring coil is broken (front left) should the other one (front right) be replaced automatically at the same time?
