Exclamation Really easy user question for you ML 320 cdi owners!

HI All,

Just about to buy A ML320 CDI Automatic 2007 - W164, looks in good shape and is advertised as a 7G gear tronic.

When I drove it was fine, all checked out - my question is when you are using the buttons to change gear it shows on the display 1-2-3-4-5-6-D.

Just wanted to check the D was a 7th not the car skipping 7th and going into auto?

Really bone question but be grateful for your wealth of experience,


The car drives really well otherwise, sport and comfort mode respond appropriately and gearbox is smooth.


Thanks

Ben

I have an Ď08 and agree that D = 7th.

Curious about your comment on Sport vs Comfort mode. Iíve had that in E sedans, but not in the ML.

The transmission modes on mine (located on either side of hazard flasher) have a picture of a vehicle going downhill on left & uphill on right which I've come to understand left one is useful to have illuminated while towing through mountain passes as it will increase braking to compensate for trailer downhill. It is called DSR (downhill speed regulation) I think.The uphill one I've come to understand to be useful in slippage environments such as pulling a boat out of water on a slippery boat launch ramp. It is referred to as Off-road driving program & works with ABS, ESP, & 4-ETS to coordinate shifting points to be more suitable for uneven terrain & crossing water. In operator's manual, right button is different & shows a picture of a circle with 3 letters, M; C; S for manual, comfort, & sport so there are variants apparently. I wish I could disable steering wheel paddle shifters as I always seem to bump into them accidentally at most inopportune times & try to cause an overrev event.

Thanks for the clue on the transmission settings. Over here only the C63 AMG models have that ability. Alas, I do not have one of those. LOL
