Not what I expected.
By djt on


2002 Mercedes-Benz G-Class G500 4WD SUV (5.0L 8cyl 5A)


I've owned 2 Lexus LX 470's, upon
purchasing the G 500 I realized just
how much I'd given up. The interior
is much narrower than the LX, the ride
is much firmer and the cabin is much
darker (due to the lack of a glass
sunroof). All of this is immediatly
apparent when you first test drive the
G, but its initial seductiveness makes
you put all of this aside.
Unfortunatly the sexiness wears off
very quickly and all your left with
are the shortcomings. As soon as DMV
processes my title, I'll probably sell
the G and look at either the 2003
Range Rover or another LX 470.

Best Features

The exterior of the vehicle.

Worst Features

Redesign the vehicle, make it larger with a softer ride, add a glass sunroof, and add side air bags.
