Review of the 2005 Mercedes-Benz G-Class

  • Although extremely capable in the wild, its primitive nature on the street makes it more of a high-priced novelty than a true luxury SUV.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Go-anywhere capability, powerful V8 engine, surprisingly quiet on the highway.

  • Cons

    Heavy steering and accelerator pedal efforts, no side airbags, poor ergonomics, uncomfortable rear seat, not much cargo room.

  • What's New for 2005

    The complimentary scheduled maintenance program has been dropped for 2005.

Having seen the G-Wagon in the miltary service, it is kind of odd to see them as a luxury car. These tanks are made to take all kind of abuses. Unless you are taking them off-road in the Pac West or somewhere, you will be better off driving a smaller SUV.

I have had my G for quite some time. It is quality throughout. No plastic and thin metal. Go and drive the best. It's better than my BMW 5 series and the best vehicle I have ever driven. See for yourself. The Hummer owners wish they had one! Its for real.

Vehicle: 2005 Mercedes-Benz G-Class G500 4WD 4dr SUV (5.0L 8cyl 5A)

Robust is not the word to describe this. Steel frame, heavy steel, massive hinges. You'd think it was built for military use. It turns heads everywhere. I've been wanting one for 2 years, and am not in any way disapointed, except I wish service could be thru MB trucks and not the car dealer.
