My '85, 300SD now has about 162K miles and the trans. exhibits occasional flairing when shifting to high gear, but only under slow acceleration conditions around town. My '88 TE with 124K miles is perfect. I had about 185K miles on my manual trans. in my old 240D and it was perfect. Say what you will about GM cars, but I sincerely wish that a Chevrolet transmission would fit a MBZ. Reliable and dirt cheap to fix or replace.
