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


Review

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.

Review

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.


Favorite Features

Style and quality.


Suggested Improvements

Better fuel economy? Well you can't have everything.

Review

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.


Favorite Features

Outside styling and a high ride. It's not nimble, but can be quick.


Suggested Improvements

Raise the price if not profitable due to the hand made nature. They'll still sell.

Review

Our second G. My wife wanted one of the last ones to make it to North America. She loves it and places me second place in our home. Great ride and commands the road. The new 2006 being built in Alabama does not deserve the G CLASS name!! It is an embarassment to us G lovers!! (maybe Pacifica 2 would be more appropriate!)


Favorite Features

Durability and construction.


Suggested Improvements

Maybe a diesel version?? There was one in the past!

Review

This truck can go anywhere and through anything. It can also tow my 32 foot boat without a thought. I also like the fact that it is solid and NOT made of plastic. It is made to go 1,000,000 miles.


Favorite Features

Offroad capabilities and solid construction.


Suggested Improvements

More options for 16" wheels in the US. There are more aggressive tires available in 16".
