#82 of 88 stuck tranny, again
Dec 29, 2005 (5:45 am)
My last benz, a 91 300e needed a new tranny at 100k, because it got stuck in 2nd gear. Now my 98 3320 4matic just had the same symptom. After being at the shop overnight they test drove it and it is "fine". The 91 tranny ran me a few thousand, I have no idea if this one is about to go. Anybody else having transmission issues like this?
#83 of 88 Happiness is a MB

I bot my 1998 MB E320 about two years ago. Have been very satisfied and pleased with my decision ever since. Had a need for a fast, smooth comfortable road car for extended trips to visit family in faraway places and the MB fill the bill precisely. It was meant and designed for lunch in Munich after slaving at your desk in Stuttgart all morning long.
She had about 72K showing on the clock and I took it to a trusted mechanic and to MB for a used car inspection and they both gave it clean bill of health. There were some issues that I had taken care of and now am very happy with a formidable automobile. I have owned many, many different types but this is my first Mercedes. I will probably happily pay for maintenance and since I have sources for reliable repairs in both drive train and brakes and suspension, I feel that I will be treated fairly.
I think I read that the E body style I have is the last one they made before the merger with Chrysler had any effect on build quality. I think it's the W body style and it was in the pipes long before the merger screwed things up.
The earlier MB's were considerably more dependable than the newer stuff.
Just feels like a million bucks!

My98 E320 is starting to idle very rough. It has about 139,000 miles on it. I got the oil changed, new oil filter, fluids checked but it didn't help. I use to put the cheap gas in when fuel was so high but the last two or three times I upgraded to the higher fuel. What do I need to do? Working Mom on a budget.

Hello everyone, just got a 2006 E350 but the NAVIGATION seems a bit outdated. Where do I get an updated CD? The NAV is not very detailed either.
