Question Is BG ok for MB?

I am thinking of changing my Tranny fluid at 60K. Is it ok to refill with the BG product? Or should i just use MB fluid?

The benz dealers around here use Quaker State Dexron 3. The Dexron rating might be different for you car, but usually benz is Dexron 3.

DO NOT USE DEXRON OR BG IN THAT TRANSMISSION!!!! You've got the 722.6 transmission and it requires ONLY the MB fluid. Kutz has a car the uses Dexron, but yours does not. Check the owners manual.
