The 300sel that we just purchased five days ago for a great price has now crud in the transmission pan. The tech says it needs to be rebuilt to the tune of 1800. What causes a transmission to go in this car. The car only has 140k miles on it..is this a normal phenomenon or did the previous driver ruin it somehow?
About the price...with the tranny $, we paid roughly 10k for the car and retail was around 12 so i am not too terrible upset.
