2004 Mercedes-Benz G-Class G500 4WD 4dr SUV (5.0L 8cyl 5A)

Review

Great SUV. Just the right size for off-roading. Built like a tank or bank vault. Nothing else on the road like it. The locking diffs and compact size are what put this SUV above everything else not named Jeep Wrangler Rubicon. Interior space is surprisingly good, but a bit narrow. This applies to the cargo area too. Interior design is very old, but the materials and fit & finish are first rate (and appropriate for price). Storage space is at a premium though. Stereo is pretty good when you play CDs, not so good with radio. Leather is top-notch...after 50k miles, no signs of creasing! (This is in contrast to my brother's LX470's leather.)

Favorite Features

Pure off-road ability. Built like a tank. Feels secure like a bank vault. Very rust proof. High seating with big windows. High quality interior. Unique exterior...attracts attention (good or bad). Rear parking sonar is a big help...a must have! Harman Kardon stereo is pretty good for CDs.

Suggested Improvements

Radio reception should be better. Interior design is pretty old...some things seem like an after-thought. Better wind suppression due to brick wall styling. Side curtain airbags (in '05-up models) should not be roll-over sensing due to this truck's main focus (off-roading).
