The one issue with our new Mercedes E350d that’s souring our experience

This behaviour is only experienced during the first few minutes after a cold start and once warmed up, she drives perfectly.

BHPian Suraj25 recently shared this with other enthusiasts.

Hi team, we took the delivery of our Silver E350d in Bangalore a couple of days ago. A few pictures of our luxury ’silver arrow’:

Although we’re thoroughly enjoying the mini S class experience with the 6 cyl engine, air suspension, etc. there is one issue that is souring our experience.

During the first start of the day (cold start), when the gearbox is slotted to D or R and we start creeping forward, the RPMs are pretty erratic and the car vibrates/shakes pretty violently. Almost as if the gearbox is lugging the engine. Today, the car stalled in reverse as I was pulling out of the driveway. This behaviour is only experienced during the first few minutes after a cold start and once warmed up, she drives perfectly. It does get pretty cold in Bangalore during the winters but nothing that a car designed for European winters can’t handle.

We’ve escalated this issue with Mercedes but wanted to check if anyone else on the forum has experienced anything similar with the 9G Tronic gearbox. Appreciate any help/suggestions in diagnosing the issue.
