Mercedes 722.6 Transmission Shifting Problems Part 1: Do I Really Need a Complete Rebuild?
In this introduction to a multi part video series, Kent shares the shifting
problem he is having in his own E320 4matic wagon and what he plans to do
to try to fix it. The 722.6 transmission is not know for major internal
failure under 150,000 miles but it does suffer from a few common electrical
issues. 85 percent of the problems related to shifting can be attributed to
three components. Kent's shows and explains each of one these. In part 2 he
will show you how he pulls the diagnostic trouble code out of the engine
computer and what it might mean.

2014 Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6X6 vs 2014 Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG! Head 2 Head Ep. 46
On this episode of Head 2 Head, Jonny Lieberman heads to Graz, Austria, the
home of one of the world's toughest off roaders - the Mercedes-Benz
G-Wagen. The last time a G63 appeared on Head 2 Head, it beat out the
all-new and quite excellent Range Rover Supercharged. This time, however,
the G63 faces even stiffer competition — another G63. Of course, this
particular G has an extra axle, because it's the $500,000+ G63 AMG 6x6!
Costing roughly twice as much as the awesome twin-turbo V-12 powered G65, the 6x6 is the ultimate
expression of the Gelandewagen... on paper. But is it actually any good? Is
the 6x6 as awesome as it looks, or is the regular G-Wagen just too well
thought out? And why is the 6-wheeled truck always jumping in the air like
that? Watch and find out!
Head 2 Head appears every other Wednesday on the Motor Trend channel.

2005 Mercedes E270 CDI Avantgarde Full Review,Start Up, Engine, and In Depth Tour
For more in depth reviews check my channel:
Filmed by: Tomaž Kožar Jesenice
In July 2002, having waited six months for the new Mercedes- Benz E-class
to hit the showrooms, I borrowed one. After driving several hundred miles I
was left with one overwhelming emotion: disappointment.
I loved the sleek lines and the clever technology; the huge boot swallowed
the largest load. But none of this could hide the car's Achilles heel: its
engine. The 177bhp V6 petrol engine fitted to the E240 sounded harsh when
pushed, performance felt moderate and after 800 miles it had averaged only
But my reaction was out of step; almost universally the car was heaped with
praise. And it was 18 months before my opinion was to change.
This time I drove an E270 diesel. It was blessed with virtually identical
power to the petrol car on paper but in reality the leap in torque produced
a smooth wall of power that made the car genuinely fun to drive, and it
also averaged close to 40mpg. At last I understood what everyone had been
saying: this was quite possibly the best executive car money could buy.
I also tried the more modestly priced E220 diesel with 150bhp. It still
felt good, and the 3.2 litre E320 diesel with 204bhp was a real hoot. With
these cars Mercedes proved that not only had diesel engine technology
caught up with the petrol equivalents but actually eclipsed them.
In fact only one petrol version is comparable with the diesel. The E500
boasts a 5 litre V8 that kicks out 306bhp and while economy is not its
forte you get huge performance — 0-62mph in 5.8sec and a top speed
limited at 155mph. A used example will cost about £25,000 and makes an
excellent buy. Both the E200 and E320 petrol engines, boasting 163bhp and
224bhp respectively and introduced in 2003, are best avoided.
Once you've chosen your engine you have to decide on the trim level. The
entry-level Classic is far from basic with climate control, alloys, leather
steering wheel, electric windows and auto dimming rear mirror as standard.
It has front, side and head airbags, antilock brakes and traction control.
The car scored five stars in the Euro NCAP crash tests.
Commanding a premium of about £1,500 on a used example is the Elegance
model which adds walnut wood veneer, automatic rain-sensing wipers, power
headlamp washers and electrically folding door mirrors. For about £750
more the used Avantgarde adds flashier alloy wheels, sports suspension,
bi-xenon lights, blue tinted glass and a dark wood interior.
Whichever you plump for it's best to choose an automatic box. They fetch a
premium of about £1,250 over the six-speed manuals but you'll enjoy
near-identical performance, equivalent economy and easier resale.
On the move the car feels smooth, quiet and well planted on the road, the
clever electronics intervening when the car reaches its limit. Leather
upholstery and sat nav are desirable options and add about £500 apiece to
used values, but multicontour seats that massage your back and Airmatic
suspension do little to enhance value.
Whichever E-class you choose it's a pretty safe bet that you will be buying
a great car. Just make sure it's diesel.
Satellite navigation A desirable option that adds around £500 to the value
of a used car
Front arm rest Air-conditioned to keep your drinks chilled
Transmission Six-speed manual best avoided as auto suits the car best. You
will find a range of five, six and seven-speed derivatives across the
Climate control Standard on all models with some cars having an optional
upgrade for separate climate control to the rear
Insurance Relatively modest group 13 insurance on the E270 diesel
Service history Avoid incomplete history on a car that is going to set you
back £20,000 plus
Sunroof Optional panoramic glass sunroof fitted with solar panel that
powers a fan to circulate air and keep the car cool when stationary. At
£1,250 it is a rare option and adds little to used values
Upholstery Cloth is standard with Avantgarde models having a cloth/leather
combination. But cars with leather are common and fetch about £500 more
Bodywork Aluminium used extensively in construction of bonnet, front wings,
rear parcel shelf and boot lid, which reduces the car's weight
Alloys Standard on all models. Avantgarde gets the chunky five-hole design
Tyres Check the inside edge for uneven wear on the front wheels

Mercedes Benz C-class W203 Development
The second generation C-Class was introduced in 2000, with a sportier look
than the previous generations, with a steeper front-end and shorter
rear-end. The styling cues were similar to that of the W220 S-Class. The
sedan debuted with a range of straight-four and V6 gasoline engines and
straight-four and straight-five Diesels. Most of the engines were carried
over from the W202, but the C 320 was exclusive, offering 218 hp, also the
C240 now had 2597 cc but output was unchanged at 170 hp. The diesels now
featured common rail direct injection and variable geometry turbochargers. Six-speed manual gearboxes were now
standard for nearly the entire range (except the C320 and C 270 CDI). For
the first time, the number designations were no longer equivalent to the
engine displacement, more specifically in the C 180 (2.0 L), C 240 (2.6 L)
and C 200 CDI (2.2 L).
In 2001, Mercedes increased the range, with the introduction of the new
T-Modell station wagon and Sportcoupé. The Sportcoupé was a three-door
liftback made to counter the BMW Compact, but like its competitor, it
proved unpopular with the younger buyers it was targeted towards, due to
high prices compared to the lower entry-level models it was competing
against, and unfavorable exchange rates. Although removed from the North
American lineup in 2005, it continued on sale in other markets. From
October 2000 until 2007, a total of 230,000 Sportcoupés were built in the
Bremen factory and in Brazil. In Canada, it was replaced by the
Mercedes-Benz B-Class. A new family of supercharged four cylinder engines,
dubbed M271, also debuted. All of them used the same 1.8 L engine, with
different designations according to horsepower levels, including
a version powered by natural gas. The 193 PS(142 kW/190 hp) C 230K was
initially available only in the Sportcoupé. 4MATIC four wheel drive
versions were also offered for the C 240 and C 320.
The C-Class was refreshed in early 2004. In this year, the interior styling
was changed in all three body styles. Different taillights were added to
the Sportcoupé and several all-new M272 and OM642 V6 engines were
introduced later in the year. These were available in both petrol and
diesel configuration, ranging between 2.5 L and 3.5 L, and the three-valve
twin spark design was replaced by the more standard four-valve design, now
with variable valve timing. The C 350 could now reach 272 PS (200 kW/268
hp), while the C 320 CDI was good for 224 PS (165 kW/221 hp). In addition,
these engines also received the new seven-speed 7G-Tronic automatic
transmission as optional, the diesel four cylinder's power was slightly
increased, and a more economical naturally-aspirated 1.8 L (C 160) was
added to the Sportcoupé lineup.
The C-Class is arguably one of the most popular automobiles in its class in
many of the European markets. The second generation was for a long time
after its release the second most popular new car in the German market,
right after the Volkswagen Golf, and in 2002 it achieved success in the
field of safety by scoring the maximum five stars in a EuroNCAP crash test.
In the United States, the C-Class automobiles are the least expensive of
the Mercedes-Benz lineup as the A-Class was not imported there. However the
W203 C-Class did acquire a poor reputation for reliability compared to
other Mercedes-Benz models, an area which was targeted for improvement in
the replacement model.
The last W203 C-Class sedan was produced on December 14, 2006 at the
Sindelfingen plant, after almost 630,000 units of the sedan were produced.
By the revision of the C-Class in 2005, C 32 AMG was also replaced, giving
way to a new 5.5 L naturally-aspirated V8-powered C 55 AMG. This was an
evolution of the V8 engine found in the previous E-Class, with power raised
to 367 PS (270 kW/362 hp) at 5750 rpm and torque climbing to 510 Nm (376
ft•lbf) at 4000 rpm. Unlike the less-powerful V6s and V8s in the rest of
the Mercedes-Benz lineup, it continues to use Speedshift five-speed
automatic. Though maximum speed is still limited to 250 km/h (155 mph) and
4.9 seconds from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) is not improved, this model is
considered the sportiest AMG model in the C-Class history before the recent
release of the W204 (third generation) C63 AMG.
Mercedes C class W203 winter driving (bad tyres + big torque RWD)
It's my W203 320CDI 7G 224 PS 510 Nm avantgarde sport. It accelerates 0-100
km/h in 7 s and can go 250 km/h then hits limiter. And I love it. Winters
just bring several situations similar to the one you see in the vid. 3 - 4
such situations per winter:) That's it. It's absolutely very good everyday
car I drive since 2006 and now on... FIT BEST

Mercedes Benz Factory
Mercedes-Benz plant Bremen: Bremen plant to produce additional model of the
C Class model range as of 2011
• Development as a competence centre: Bremen plant expanding production
operations to include Coupé of the C-Class
• New variant to be produced in addition to the C-Class Saloon, the
C-Class Estate and the GLK as of 2011
• Flexible production: Coupé to be produced with three existing models
on a single line
Peter Schabert, Head of the Bremen plant: "Decision another milestone on
our way to becoming the C-Class competence centre and a clear sign of trust
in Bremen team's capabilities and standards."
Bremen - The Mercedes-Benz plant in Bremen is gearing up for the production
of a fourth model of the high-volume C-Class model range. As of 2011, a
Coupé will be added to a flexible production line, which already produces
the three existing models. This will be a new addition to Bremen's current
production portfolio in the C-Class segment, comprising the Saloon, the
Estate and the compact GLK sport utility vehicle (SUV).
"The decision by the Board of Management to produce the Coupé version of
the current C-Class here in Bremen as well represents another important
milestone on our way to becoming Mercedes' competence centre for the
C-Class and is a clear sign of the trust in the Bremen team's capabilities
and standards," says Peter Schabert, Head of the Mercedes-Benz plant in
The Bremen plant is developed into the worldwide competence centre for the
high-volume C-Class model series. Allocating production of the new Coupé
to the plant is in keeping with this strategy. As announced in December
2009, the launch of the next generation of the C-Class at the plant as of
2014 will see production of the C-Class Saloon for markets in Europe
concentrated at a single location together with the production of the other
C-Class model variants.
The Bremen plant is already demonstrating the flexibility of its production
operations by producing three models (C-Class Saloon, C-Class Estate and
GLK) on a single assembly line. The vehicles are able to pass along the
assembly line in any conceivable order precisely as customer orders
require, irrespective of model, variant (right- or left-hand drive,
all-wheel or rear-wheel drive) and equipment. From 2011 the Bremen plant
will be integrating a fourth model into the production process in the guise
of the Coupé, demonstrating the plant's flexibility once again.
Production portfolio of the Bremen plant.
In addition to the models of the C-Class model series, vehicles belonging
to the E-Class are also produced in Bremen, with the Coupé and Cabrio
running in flexible configuration on a single production line. The
roadsters of the SL- and SLK-Class are also produced exclusively in Bremen.
With a workforce of around 12,600, the Mercedes-Benz plant is the largest
private-sector employer in the region.
