1997 Mercedes SL 320 transmission

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Our Mercedes has been garaged for a few
months without driving or drafting up. We
couldn't keep battery charged, but once
battery charged we drove it 7 miles to our
mechanic and car never would shift past
1st gear.  We've never had transmission
problems. We didn't let it warm up before
we headed out.  Any suggestions or
comments?
