Great Automobile

by My Baby from 90069 | January 4, 2013

This auto comands the road in drive and presence. It has been reliable, comfortable, and classic. I have owned other brands that have tried to look and proform as this auto does but there is NO comparision. And there unchange body style is one of the best ideas Mercedes has every had. Bravo to this Auto.

Best vehicle I have owned.

by Love my G55 from Huntsville Al | September 25, 2011

I wont lie, Im not rich and i bought mine used with 157,000 miles on it. HOWEVER, today it has 278,487 miles on it and is STILL working perfectly. Brakes can get a bit pricey though. I paid 200 for new pads. I recommend you change your breaks on time to avoid paying for a new rotor, which is 150 a piece. Tire wear isnt bad, and used tires can be purchased for 30 bucks a piece. Insurance is high, and u pay 100 bucks to fill up every week. OTHER than that stuff, It is comfortable, fast as all get out, built like a tank, more reliable than a toyota, and if this is your only car, perfect for any occasion. Need to help someone move? G. Tow something? G. Race someone? G. Drive to a remote location untouched by man? G. School reunion? G. It is a vehicle that can SERIOUSLY be used in any situation. U can go take your kids to school, go party with your friends, go to the rocky mountains, slide down the mountain face in a mudslide with empties into a marshy pond, run over some ducks, go hunting, pick up the kids, and still have the door opened for u and valet at a fancy long dress and tux banquet. All on the same day, and one car wash later. ALSO to be mentioned, the paint takes considerable force to scratch. It is some kind of scratch resistant paint, in case some bushes brush against your G class while off road. In the case of the hand built G class, you really do get what you pay for. And the reason the price is so high new, is because each one is hand built! Those guys in Austria need to feed their families too. So you pay a bit more to the human who built your car, over a machine that cost 10 bucks a day to run.

A German disaster on 4 wheels

by Never Ever Kev from Arizona | May 31, 2011

I had the 2005. The exterior of the car is classy. The interior is functional. The ride is tiring over long distances. Gas consumption is a joke. Road holding is very poor. Expect to pay dearly for new brakes and tires on a regular basis. Even though the truck looks great, it is a maintenance nightmare. If money is no object, you won't notice.
