2007 ML500. When starting from a stop there is a slight delay then a lurch. I have adjusted the way I work the accelerator pedal to account for this. I believe this is a transmission characteristic that I will have to live with. I have taken it in twice to have them look at it and after new transmission software and a transmission service (new fluid/filter), the problem is still there. The service technician said there is nothing they can do about it. Oddly, when I drove it home after the transmission service it drove perfectly for about a day, then it went back to the delays. I wonder if they reset the transmission (cleared the stored learning data). Anybody found a way to resolve this?
