Everything you ever wanted in a truck

by Car guy from USA | September 1, 2012

The perfect balance of luxury and ruggedness. It's a truck for those looking for excellent off road and excellent styling...in the city or the country it turns heads

Attention Getter!

by TrustfundBaby from Miami | February 24, 2011

I love the classic look of this vehicle. Another trait is the heavy duty parts used to make the G Wagen. My mechanic said in 30 yrs he's never seen axles that thick! A real tank! Slow as a tank. if you like attention, get a G Wagen unlike any other SUV.

love the look of the G-Wagen

by nvh from Sellersburg, IN | September 15, 2010

I bought my 2003 G-Class and replaced it in 2007 with a Lexus LX470. There is an unbelievable difference in the ride, the Lexus is more of a comfort machine and G-Class drives rough like a truck. The vehicle sits on a truck chasis. Off road is a true experience, you will not have any troubles whatsoever! I love the way the g-wagon looks and love the roomy interior. The front passenger door required fixing several times, the rear passenger window also had to be repaired several times. The vehicle is so heavy the tires wear out much quicker and they are expensive.

Overall good vehicle

by GWagen from Philadelphia, PA | April 7, 2010

Regardless of what is said about the earlier G-wagens of 2002 and early 2003, if they have a good amount of mileage on them (75,000+) then they have most likely had all the typical issues resolved with "updates" released by Mercedes. I would look for a higher mileage older G500 and would look to see that the alternator and front window regulators have been changed, the various software updates made, and that its seen regular maintenance. If the the necessary updates have been made the vehicle is no different than the new ones for all intensive purposes. A "cheap" G will end up costing way more than a properly maintained G that costs more. Finally, try to buy from an enthusiast seller who knows what is necessary to maintain the vehicle (usually better than the dealer) and has kept up with all the little fluid changes that don't cost much to do but keep the vehicle running practically forever.

Good vehicle up to 100k miles

by JerryK from Sherman Oaks, CA | July 25, 2009

Had an '02 which I enjoyed. Traded in at 100k miles for a BMW. the G5 started having constant mech. issues after 90k miles. Now waiting for a Tesla electric...wave of the future.
