Thanks Skeppa, Well I'm assuming that every time they reset adaptions it's the tcu? I will mention resetting the ecu beforehand this time. Hopefully that would do it.
Dealer replaced the Valve Body...now what?
"I'm hoping someone can chime in on this ongoing issue. I have taken the car to the dealer for the infamous jerky transmission issue. Twice the shift adaptions were done, and recently the valve body was replaced. Still, the downshift jerk continues. Has anyone encounter a similar problem after the valve body swap? The dealer seems stumped at this point... Car current sitting at 51k and had the ATF changed at 39k by Mercedes. Thanks"

A jerky transmission is persistent with our cars. I had the ATF changed at 39k and adaptions reset twice. And most recently, the body valve was changed along with yet another adaption reset but still no luck. Im tired of going to the dealership for this issue...Any idea were this problem is coming from. It's really sad to see a tranny acting up so soon(50k miles).
Jerky transmission shifts
"I'm cursed. My old car, an 04 c240, developed* the same problem as my new car, a 2006 cls500. I recently purchased the cls and it was incredibly smooth for the first little bit of ownership, no jerkiness/sluggishness whatsoever. I believe the problem occured after I was testing out how fast the car would go in touchshift and floored it from 1st gear in S-mode. Ever since then, the gear shifts have not been as smooth overall, but specifically when I'm going ~10 km/hr and slowing down naturally without my foot on the brake, it is especially jerky(3-2 and 2-1 shifts, as I usually drive in S-mode). The c240 had the same problem and similarly did not have it when I purchased the car. Tried an ECU reset, I can't really tell if it even made a significant difference. My brake pads are due for ..."

Just wondering if 17" rims can be fitted over the brakes on a CLS550 with AMG sport package. Thanks in advance
I was wondering if anyone drove through snow in all seasons vs. dedicated winter tires.. My current summers are almost gone. So I was thinking to invest in all season instead buying winters then summers later on in the year. Also, what sizes would you guys recommend for winters? Should I stick to the factory set up or go with something smaller? For some reason I feel 285s are a tad much for a winter tire.. Thanks in advance.
It is stock. Starting after the 2009 MY face lift, non amg body cars got the squared exhaust.
Whats the deal with my car?
"I get asked a lot about my "squared off exhaust tips", and I never seem to see my bumper whenever the CLS is shown. Note the oval foglights... Does anyone know what the deal is? Its a 2009... is this stock equipment or some sort of AMG sport package (I thought I saw an original equipment list with some sort of appearance package at some point)"
Congratulations on the new car, and the baby ofcourse!

They are 100% accountable! Simply fixing it is really not enough. My car is also at the dealer this weekend....now I'm worried. Which dealer is this?

I can't seem to make it work. So I was wondering if anyone uses it or if it's equipped in CLS models.
I have noticed that the car uses up more fuel when in comfort transmission mode. Has this been the case with others?
CLS suspention setting & ride height ? (comfort sport1 & sport2)
"I have a 08 Cls 550. What does the 3 suspension setting (comfort,sport1 and sport2) do and do they effect my ride height ?

Or does it raise to a new lower height level when pushing the raise button."
