Question type: General

My wife bought a 2004 C240 but no user manual.  Does anyone know what is the "S-C" switch for?  It is located at the top of the automatic transmission gear shift.

the "S-C" switch refers to the transmission mode...either "Sport" which starts in 1st gear from a stop or "Comfort" which starts in 2nd gear from a stop. I prefer the "comfort" mode because I find the ride to be softer and more like a larger sedan; however, it uses a bit more gas I think.

S is for sports mode and the transmission will start from 1st gear. C mode is for comfort mode transmission will starts from 2 gear from dead stop, it is good for rainy and snowy days so you don't slip at initial aceleration
