2004 Mercedes-Benz G-Class G500 4WD 4dr SUV (5.0L 8cyl 5A)
I purchased my G500 in August of 2002.
Since that time the door hinge seals
required replacement twice, the
transfer case computer went out at
10,000 miles, even before going off
road. The car blows fuses for the power
seats and the vehicle required visits
to the shop more than twice for power
window failure. You need a second car
to own a G500 so you have something to
drive. One also wouldn't expect the
G500 to squeak, but it does. And the
service departments aren't much better
than the vehicle itself. This is one
consumer who will never buy another
Instill quality control at the plant
for mechanical soundness.
