Our 92 300E (4 speed automatic) shifts solidly but abruptly into 2nd, then 3rd (not so much 4th). When shifting into 2nd, there is sometimes a belt squeek accompanying the shift. If we back off the accelerator a bit just about shift time, the transition is a lot smoother. We've been told that this was an idiosyncracy we should get used to, but I'd like another opinion. It just doesn't seem normal for a luxury car. Other than the shifting problem, acceleration and dropping down a gear to pass feels fine. The fluid level is right where it should be. Thanks for your imput.
