    Out of warranty and was offered $1000 discount on $6500 replacement from MB dealership. I would guess to be about 10% of what may be expected from the life of this transmission. I am really disappointed and wanted to know if this is all to be expected from MB.

    Thanks!

    We just had the same: a transmission failure at 40,000 mi - just out of warranty. Absolutely fractured at how low the miles are for MB saying we need a transmission replacement. $6,400
    Anyone have a recommendation on how to handle this?
    Rebuilding seems to be an option that might save $1,000 and avoid MB, whom we have lost some consumer faith in.
    Reluctant to simply fix w/o help from MB
