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.
The three locking differentials, and solid front axle, coupled with nearly three hundred horsepower putting out a lot of torque makes it the best.
Side airbags, non-glare side windows and more aggressive tires.
