The 722.6 transmission on my '99 S600 was replaced sometime before I bought it last May. The car had 97,000 mi. on it when I bought it. On another forum a representative fromZF (the people who made the trans.) said that these transmissions were coming in for rebuilds after 60,000 mi. He stated that the fluid should be changed at 40,000 mi. Are the good folks at Mercedes going to do the right thing if your transmission fails out of warranty? They will NEVER acknowledge any design flaws(3.5 Turbodiesel engines), bad service interval advice, flawed components(140 evaporators), etc.
