transmission noise

25

Asked by Apr 23, 2007 at 03:02 PM about the 1999 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C 280 Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I am used to a 1987 260E which has a very quiet shifting transmission.  I bought the 1999 C-280 in February.  To me, it seems as though the transmission is noisy compared to the 260E  How is this transmission different in design from the 260E?

1 Answer

3,225

the fact that the newer vehicles transmission is built with much lighter weight materials, makes it louder
