There is a pretty respectable Mercedes mechanic on YouTube that makes videos. He says the transmissions are pretty well-built and nine times out of 10 the problems are with the electronic board valve cover something in the transmission you can rebuild your transmission for under 500 bucks and they're said to not have to have the fluid changed. He says change the fluid in your transmission and should last forever. The plug for the electronics go out has two rings that go bad you also want to replace that it's just a little circle about an inch long I'll try to look him up and get the video for you but he says a lot of people replace these transmissions and they didn't need to. This is the 722.6 transmission in the 1999 c-280 and any other car that uses it. Mercedes used it in a ten year peirod in different models if i remember corectly. His videos are extremely detailed and show you how to do it all if you want to try.

My 1996 C280 has just about gotten to 56,000 miles. Seems to run nicely, although with age I have had sensor problems.

1997 C230 & 1992 300E
1997 C230 - 119k miles in really good condition. I get compliments on it all the time.
Bought in January 2018 with 111k miles on it & it's got 119k now in March 2019. C230 was running great prior to a week ago. Problem just started with rough idle last week. I will post in another thread regarding this idle craziness.
