10 Months experience G-55 Gelaendewagen
By juergenb on


2004 Mercedes-Benz G-Class G55 AMG 4WD 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 5A)


We enjoy the sheer power surge,
predictable cornering and handling of
the truck. The very hard ride
telegraphs every bump in the road, but
provides outstanding steering control.
Seat comfort and space for front seat
occupants is very good. A/C and
heating perform well.
The steep angle of the windshield
makes the car sensitive to stone
damage.(2 incidents in 3,600 miles)
The car was driven cross country in a
wide range of weather conditions and
at high speeds without problems
The cd based GPS system is a nightmare
in fringe areas because Navtech
software does not overlap regions.

Best Features

Outstanding acceleration, spare power even in high altitudes (>10,000 ft.) and safe cornering at high speeds make this our favorite performance SUV. The quality of the interior finish is exquisite.

Worst Features

Xenon head lamps. Adjustable rear window.Improve adjustment of seats belts for rear passengers. Driving through slush and snow caused the automatic transmission on one occasion to stick in drive until slush was melted off driveshaft. DVD based GPS will be a must for future models.
