I love everything about my GLE400 except for the throttle response.

I understand that the car has an adaptive transmission and I've reset it a few times, but it still has an annoying delay between when I hit the gas and when the car gets moving.

It's only at low speeds (i.e. driving through a parking lot, etc.)....0-20mph..

Has anyone else experienced this? Is there a fix or is this something that I have to get used to?

How to fix it
First, try throttle reset procedure

Turn the key to ON position. Position II that is. Don’t start the car.
Press and hold the gas pedal for at least five seconds. Keep the pedal pressed.
Turn ignition off but do not remove the key. Now release the gas pedal.
Remove key. Wait a minute before you restart your Mercedes.
This allows resetting the High and Low points of the gas pedal. It also resets the transmission shift points to factory settings. Don’t worry you can’t cause any damage with this reset.

I've used this on my own GLE 400. You will be very pleased to get the response back in your engine!

I've used this on my own 2016 GLE 400. You will be pleasantly surprised to have the response back in your engine.
