2002 Mercedes-Benz G-Class G500 4WD SUV (5.0L 8cyl 5A)
Great looking, safe, comfortable and fun. Goes anywhere on or off road and feels solid in any weather conditions. Lots of cargo room and I have moved lots of small furniture in back with seats folded down. PROBLEM: Dealers have little experience or knowledge of how to service this vehicle. Many small issues have had to be fixed three or more times, also bodywork is a nightmare if you get in an accident. Mercedes does not have its act together in training its staff and service techs.
Styling, comfort, safety, versatility. Take it anywhere from a business meeting to the woods.
More sound insulation, better stereo, although they have fixed that on newer models, and more dealer training on how to service these beasts!!!
