One of the reasons MB 4-speed autos last so long is that fourth gear is actually a 1:1 ratio and there are NO turning gear sets. Therefore, there would be more wear driving in third gear simply because there would be turning gearsets that aren't there in fourth.

These MB 4-speed transmissions also do not hunt the right gear like lesser 3-speed plus overdrive transmissions used in American and Japanese cars.
