Hello what year is your Mercedes ? Is there a check engine light on ? If you drive the car and manually shift down into first gear and take off and then up shift does the car drive differently ?, can you try that ? It sounds to me like your transmission is stuck into one gear and is most likely due to a failed speed sensor but that would depend on the year of your Mercedes. Lou P.

It's a 2003 model and is automatic
Expert:  Lou P. master tech replied 1 year ago.
Ok , thanks ! I understand it is automatic , you can shift it manually by putting the shifter down into "D" and pressing the shifter to the left. Then the dash display will show a 1 for first gear and as you drive you wait until the rpms get to about 3 and then you press the shifter to the right and it will up shift 1 gear at a time all the way back to "D". So I need you to drive it like that to see if the numbers change and also if you feel the transmission shift.
