Nothing like it

Vehicle: 2003 Mercedes-Benz G-Class G500 4WD SUV (5.0L 8cyl 5A)

This big SUV has more power than you would realize. Catches others on the road by surprise with its spunk. The other eyeopener for me, having owned three Range Rovers, is the stares it receives. You cannot miss it on the road.




3 year look back

Vehicle: 2003 Mercedes-Benz G-Class G500 4WD SUV (5.0L 8cyl 5A)

After almost 3 years, I love my 2003 G. I purchased this vehicle to drive daily, but also to be used on mountain trails, farm fields and much off roading. Great, great vehicle. It climbs a mountain like a goat and has terrific power and handling abilities. I had some problems along the way which required the replacement of it's computer, and some mechanical parts. The best SUV out there that combines off-road ability with great highway features.

Former Rover owner-love the dependability. Have always owned MPPV, this has great performance. I have not experienced any excessive wind noise or other negative points shared by editors or reviewers. Better than the Escalade and the new Porshe toureag/cayen.




Mercedes benz g wagon

Great vehicle, after the dealer removes all of the door rattles. For a hand made vehicle, Mercedes Benz needs to put effort in delivery of a rattle free vehicle, including wind noise. The dealership took care of all issues. Hopefully Mercedes Benz will take note of the money they are paying dealers to take care of factory issues. The more miles it has the better it drives, i.e., loosens up.




Solid and fun

Fun to drive but no for a long time or everyday. But when you do drive it, one of the best. Make sure it's not your everyday around town car. If you want that, but a car.
