I have a question for everyone with a C43AMG.<br>
<br>
Under 3/4 to Full throttle, how long does it take for your transmission to shift from 1st to 2nd?<br>
<br>
.1 sec?<br>
.5 sec?<br>
1 sec?<br>
1.5 sec?<br>
<br>
(or anything inbetween)<br>
<br>
Mine used to take approx .1 sec (or seemed to). Then MB found there was a broken piece in my tranny, and it was rebuilt. Now all shifting is faster, EXCEPT full trottle shifts from 1st to 2nd, which takes over a second now (!!!); thus my 0-60 performance greatly suffers!<br>
<br>
Please be honest. I'm going to use this to see what level I should raise my complaint to within MB (dealership or regional), since the service manager states the way the tranny is shiting now is right, and before was wrong/bad; stating I have a luxury car. Sorry, I have an AMG car, spawned from the AMG performance factory in Germany. :)<br>
<br>
... and Thanx for your time.

Definitely sure. Mode switch is working. Got the car back in winter mode as a matter of fact, because there was snow on the ground. <br>

No, 0 - 60 times are about 7 to 8 seconds now. Not good at all.
