7000 mi Jerks between 1st and 3rd gear and 4th to 5th gear. Have had this problem since I received the car. They have no solution for it except to reprogram it and that only lasts for about a month and then it goes back to old routine. Worst trans in any car I have ever owned. According to MBUSA they are aware of the problem but have no solution for it.
