Transmission violently engage in reverse: So far I have only experienced this (twice) during cold-starts. Started the engine, shift car in to reverse gear, disengage parking break. In normal situation, the car would reverse slowly without applying throttle. In the two times I experinced the problem, the car would still be idle, even after gently applying throttle. After about 5 seconds or so, the car would violently jerk and the transmission finally engaged in reverse. The local mb service center was not able to diagnose the issue. Some gla owners also experinced the same issue, which can be found in this discussion: www.glaowners.com/forum/engine-technical-discussion/8297-transmission-woes.html here is the video that illustrates my experience, from another gla owner: Https://youtu.be/gln7kpgxyb4

The contact owns a 2015 Mercedes Benz Gla250. While driving approximately 15 mph, the vehicle stalled without warning. The vehicle was towed to a dealer and repaired; however, the check engine waring light illuminated intermittently. In addition, the vehicle would not go into reverse. While the vehicle was in park, it jerked. The vehicle was taken to a dealer again where the failure was undetermined. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The failure mileage was unknown.
