1997 MERCEDES C230 TRANSMISSION ISSUE?
Hi, I am new to this forum. I recently purchased a 1997 C230 with 210k miles. Love it!! I needed a car to take to my office which is only 5 miles away. I took it on the highway today for the first time and I noticed that at 60mph it shows 2400 rpm. I think is too high (I also have a 2012 Camry which shows 2000rpm at 70mph). Is this normal or there is something wrong with the transmission? I also tried to count the gears shifting and only felt 4 instead of 5. Did anybody have the same problem? (The car has a week engine mount which I will replace this week, I don't know if it affects the transmission in any way)
