About Mercedes-Benz G500

Being a model of the Mercedes-Benz G-Class, which is also known as G-Wagen, Gelandewagen or "cross-country vehicle" and was originally developed for military use back in the late 1970s as a heavy-duty four-wheel-drive conveyance, Mercedes-Benz G500 was manufactured by a German multinational automotive corporation DaimlerChrysler from 2002 to 2007 and by Daimler AG between 2007 and 2008 as a mid-size luxury Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV). Originally introduced as a model of the current second-generation G-Class, G500 was an entry-level model. But after being available for about seven model years, the production and supply of the G500 were ended for the 2009 model year.
Mercedes-Benz G500 was launched officially in the United States in 2002 and went on sale in June 2012 for the 2002 model year when the G-Class is in its second generation. It was offered in only one body style, 5-passenger luxury SUV and came in only one trim level. But the G500 was sold as either a long-wheelbase station wagon or a short-wheelbase cabriolet. Coming standard with equipment including bi-xenon headlamps, corner-illuminating fog lights, running boards, rear park assist, a sunroof, dual-zone automatic climate control, a power tilt/telescoping heated steering wheel, a navigation system with the COMAND interface, a rearview camera, a hands-free phone interface, front and rear heated leather seats, 10-way power front seats with memory, and a nine-speaker Harman Kardon sound system with satellite radio and a cargo-compartment-mounted six-CD changer, Mercedes-Benz G500 had been powered by a 5.0 L V8 rated at 292 horsepower and 336 pound-feet of torque and this engine sent power through a 7-speed automatic transmission to four wheels.

Mercedes-Benz G500 Common Problems & Maintenance Tips

Boasting a retro, ultra-boxy looks and macho image, Mercedes-Benz G500 appeals to a select group since it outguns and outclasses many other full-size luxury SUVs. But since its production has ended, you should be prepared for these common problems on your G500 to ensure its long lifespan:
First, according to the reliable car repair site repairpal.com, the braking failure is the most common problem that Mercedes-Benz G500 drivers have ever met during driving. Needless to explain, a well-functioning braking system is the prerequisite of a safe ride. To help more G500 owners to diagnose and solve this problem as soon as possible, here are some typical symptoms of this problem. If your brakes are noisy or are responding poorly and the brake pedal is pulsating; if you have found leaking braking fluids on the ground or found erosion on the brake line; if the rear brakes are locking up, especially on the wet surfaces; if you see score marks over the brake rotors; if the parking brake cable could not hold the car properly; and if both Brake Warning Light and Parking Brake Light come on, please inspect the working condition of the G500 brake pads, brake disc, brake drum, brake rotors, brake line, brake proportioning valve and parking brake cable.
Second, another most complained problem about Mercedes-Benz G500 is the suffered performed engine. As the power source of a vehicle, the working condition of the engine decides all, therefore, you have to keep it well all the time. Some experienced G500 drivers told that after a while of driving, the engine would start to make some noises to distract your attention; gradually, it would have performance issues such as running roughly, misfiring, stalling, hard starting or inability to start; and you would also notice a plummet in power, acceleration and fuel efficiency. Once the Check Engine Light is also triggered, then it is high time for you to replace the G500 fuel injector, timing cover, crankshaft position sensor, fuel pump, engine control module, air filter, oil filter, engine mount and spark plug.
To ensure a perfect ride on your Mercedes-Benz G500, you might as well value the role of routine maintenance on vulnerable auto parts. Parts like G500 seat belt, windshield wiper, wiper blade, antenna, cabin air filter, fog light and headlight should be maintained routinely to create a safe and comfortable driving environment consistently.
