2002 Mercedes-Benz G-Class G500 4WD SUV (5.0L 8cyl 5A)

Review

I've owned 2 Lexus LX 470's, upon purchasing the G 500 I realized just how much I'd given up. The interior is much narrower than the LX, the ride is much firmer and the cabin is much darker (due to the lack of a glass sunroof). All of this is immediatly apparent when you first test drive the G, but its initial seductiveness makes you put all of this aside. Unfortunatly the sexiness wears off very quickly and all your left with are the shortcomings. As soon as DMV processes my title, I'll probably sell the G and look at either the 2003 Range Rover or another LX 470.

Best Features

The exterior of the vehicle.

Worst Features

Redesign the vehicle, make it larger with a softer ride, add a glass sunroof, and add side air bags.
