99 C280 trans problem
Hi all, our 88,000 mile C280 would not budge today when I started it up and put it in Drive. It has been towed to the local dealer. Up until this morning it has driven well and it has been a real pleasure to drive. I would like to know what to expect from the dealer. They have been performing the maintenance on our car. Thank you, Ron Anthony in MD.
Just got a call from the dealer, we were concerned our car might need a new
transmission. Not so, dealer rep said a sensor or plug under the tranny was leaking fluid and that caused it to slip and not engage when in drive. That and another part will run us about $500 but better than another
O on the end. By the way, also said we need front wheel bearings for $700 and ball joints for $500. Do those prices sound right? TIA, Ron.
