Question Details

My 2006 E320 (high mileage) very occasionally aggressively changes down to 1st gear when slowing down. Has anyone had this issue or know what the cause is? Thank you in advance. Darren

Hi Darren, 

Have you tried to reset the transmission adaptive settings?

I did the reset as suggested and it seems to have worked. I still get the occasional sudden downshift but not nearly as aggressive as it was. Thank you very much for your input!
