I have similar problem with wife's B200. Am told it's the neutral/park sendor in the gearbox, which prevents car starting unless in park or neutral. Dealer wants AUD$1200 to remove gearbox to replace faulty switch sensor. Will update this website on repair outcomes.

service 'c' means you have additional items that might need addressing during the service. Mercedes used letters A-F for the Flexible service system on the E class. The letter correspondes to the hours the service should take. Service A is 1 hour. Service B is 2 hours. Service C is 3 hours etc all the way to F. On average the service C consists of oil and filter change, vehicle inspection A and the brake fluid flush.

seems like faulty transmission, the reason is when you drive the car gears are up shift form 1 to 2 , 2 to 3, 3 to 4, 4 to 5, like that it should be 7 speed auto trans mission in your car, if you mention when which gear up shift the problem occurred I can give more information about what's the fault in transmission, so according to your details it's like two gears are engage together, when two gears are engage same time the transmission control unit understand it's something getting wrong in the transmission according to actual value of gear ratio, then trans mission change the gear to neutral for a second and after that it give the one lower gear than the gear which was stuck and drive fine, this thing might not happen all the time but is the problem verse it can happen all the time, the solution is you must get your car to the Mercedes dealer workshop then they can find what's the wrong inside the transmission before remove it, they have advance diagnose tool for it, then they will repair your transmission, this is the cheapest way, if some one repair your transmission without right understanding regarding what's the exactly fault you will be stuck, may have to be remove again and again,

2008 should still be under warranty. Call dealership or the 1800 mercedes number and have them fix it.

it means that you need to have regular service work done by the dealer, service letter "C" disignates what is to be done, check the onwers manual or call your local dealer.
