2002 Mercedes-Benz G-Class G500 4WD SUV (5.0L 8cyl 5A)
I knew what I was buying before I bought it. This vehicle does get terrible gas mileage, compared to a Civic, but you should expect it when you are buying an almost 3 ton truck that costs $80,000. It is stiff, but you have to consider what this truck was originally desinged for. I had to take it to the dealer to have a few minor things fixed, but what vehicle does not have problems every now and then. The verdict is this: If you want a vehicle that will never go out of style, that will take you virtually anywhere, a vehicle that has plenty of power and eye appeal, then you should buy one! If you are thinking why would I need a truck to be all that..I don't know...WHY NOT!!!
Body Style, Power, Offroad Ability, Uniqueness
I have to admit that I would like a softer ride, however, it is not a Cadillac. I think that the G needs to stay the way it is, in order to be a G. Like I said before, I knew what to expect, therefore, I rate it a 10.
