I have a 2003 A170 CDI automatic that has a problem with the
autotrans. Sometimes, when shifting to the next higher gear, the
transmission slips and the engine revs up. The car has 21,000 kms but
has done this since new. Happens about 3 times per week, so it's never
done so with the mechanic driving (so he says).
The Merc dealer refuses to work on it (it's under warranty) saying
that the gearbos is perfectly OK.
Anyone else have an A-class automatic with this problem? Does anyone
know if the autotrans mounted is a "real" one, or some sort of
robotized gear shift with the infamous automatic clutch as mounted on
some A-class model?
