2007 Mercedes-Benz G-Class G500 4dr SUV 4WD (5.0L 8cyl 7A)
in 07' the G was upgraded with xenon's and a 7 speed transmission. It looks like a huge car, but it's actually smaller than full size suv's like the Expedition, Navigator and Escalade. It is quite tall though. You either like the look or you don't. Inside, the interior is top notch. The controls are easy to operate, but the car needs steering wheel mounted volume controls. You have to reach over a ways to get to the radio. Plenty of foot room, lots of cargo room. Get moving and the doors lock with the sound of a 12 guage cocking, the car turns very tight, handles well at low speeds, on the highway it loves rough roads. It doesn't handle too well on turns at speed, it's a huge tall SUV after all
You will get looks, looks of amazement, and looks of disgust from haters (most of them drive hybrids). Make a turn at night and the fog lights on the side you are turning light up. Seats are so comfy It begs to be taken off road rain sense wipers auto dimming mirrors heated everything
Steering wheel volume controls. TeleAid. Fix doors so you don't have to slam them. Lighten the car, improve mileage
