Why do I get a slight thump in the transmission?

Asked by May 23, 2013 at 02:52 AM about the Mercedes-Benz S-Class

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When accelerating from a slow speed , 10/15mph, I get a slight thump when the transmission shifts. It can be at any portion of the shifting cycle. Being a detailed  person this car is very well maintained at 202570 miles with work being done by a very good mechanic specializing in M- Benz and BMW's. Just checking all data available

I was going to say, have the fluid and filter changed out, but after reading you had 202570 miles on the transmission, no matter how well you maintained it, it's probably worn out at this point. There is nothing you can do at this point but have your mechanic perform a diagnosis and you can decide to fix or sell.

Thanks for your answer. I have been away and just got home to read your note. I will do as you suggest but use it until it really starts to go and then fix it like new. I want 300-400 thousand miiles on it before I depart this world. this world. I love this car . Have 2 0ther new ones abd leave them to my wife to drive. Thanks again. Strange Old Man
