Post What is wrong with my Benz( E200, 1998 model)?

Hi everyone!

I drive a Merc E200 ,1998 model.This car has been very well behaved until the end of 2007. Now this car moves on gear 1 only and once it heats up it slipps out of gear. What is wrong with this car ? Is it a reliable car?

I almost spit coffee all over my screen when you asked if it was reliable. Up to now, I guess but not at this moment.

Your tranny is in limp mode, which means something's terribly wrong. Take it to your dealer or a GOOD indy for a diagnosis.
