My 18 month old 172 SLK 250d is in the workshop after the 9g-tronic gearbox broke down. The car has only done 15,000 miles and Mercedes have said that the gearbox has to be replaced and they need to get the old gearbox back from the dealership . I am very concerned, has anyone heard of a similar problem with the 9g- tronic gearbox ? I'm quietly worrying about this and I'm so disappointed as I had plans to to keep this car and all that has been dampened now!

I read pretty much every post and don't recall seeing this on such a low mileage, new car before.


Give search a go.


In fact, I'll give it a run: standby

Seems to be a few issues with the 7g but not so much the 9g.
Not a SLK owner, but my GLE 250D SUV broke down due to a 9Gtronic gear box failure. It had to be towed to the dealer service center after an error message on the screen. After two days I am told that they found pieces of metal in the fluid. The next day they had removed the panel and found that there is more damage due to the original issue caused by two wheel grinding with each other. Suspected to be a factory fault. Hats off to MB my 5000 KM, Brand New MB bought 6 months ago is in the dealer's service centre pending approval for a new gear box. On the flip-side of it, the dealer has given me 2016 MB C250 as a replacement/ loan car and footed the bills for the entire emergency roadside transfer.
