7 Speed Transmission Question/Problem
I have a 2007 GL320 CDI and a 1991 300D. Ever since day 1, the GL has a weird characteristic the 91 does not. In the 300D, when letting off the accelerator at about 25-45, the transmission goes into a 'neutral' mode and idles. The GL however, does not do this. When the accelerator is let off, it just holds the gear and pretty much loses velocity because the gear is still hooked up. This can get annoying at times and I just wanted to know if this is a normal feature of the 7spd or if I have to do something to it to fix it. Thanks.
