I joined the BenzWorld because of recent problems with the transmission. The car only has 32K miles on it and is out of warranty. I live in Boulder, Colorado. I had two things done to my transmission one month ago. I just got a Transfer Case Campaign SSC# 2007100004 recall campaign. I also replaced the transmission pilot bushing/connector, because the transmission plug was leaking. The transmission electrical plug was replaced. The dealer didn't connect the transmission cables properly, and engine light went on while driving home. I drove the car over 40 miles before I could take it back to the dealer. They fixed the problem, but a month later the service light is on again, transmission doesn't shift into the highest gear, won't go into manual mode, and shifting is erratic. For example the RPM is 4500 at 62 MPH. Is this just unrelated coincidence or the result of the recall and loose cable?
