What did I find at the Moscow airport?

Post#1 » Wed Jun 13, 2018 8:06 am

The new G, of course! I could even have gone for a test drive if my flight wasn't so soon.

Click the link for a bunch of photos - I know, people have posted ones like this before, but I think I got some clear shots of the suspension and under-belly.

Great photos Vadim. Too bad you could not take her for a ride. It looks like the wife made a new friend though. Hi to her and safe travels.

Very cool, thanks for sharing those pictures Vadim. What were your impressions of it?

Frankly, I liked it much more than I expected to. Build quality still seems excellent, and the updated suspension seems impressively stout. I'm very curious to see how it holds up to real off-road abuse. The glass cockpit might not like Death Valley washboards... but time will tell.

Definitely one of the largest markets for the new G class after Cali and probably Dubai
And not necessarily in that order at all

Is it just me or does some of the undercarriage finish on axles and suspension components seem really sloppy?

It looks like the chassis and suspension got hosed down with hot wax or similar. It may not look pretty, but it seals out road salt & other nasty stuff very well.

I predict a 2018 G550 will be under $80K this time next year
1999 G500, 1997 G300, 1995 G320

Dear MBUSA please offer the "gloppy goo delete package"

Its got to be some sloppy under spray, the one in NYC was the same deal, it had lots of glop and goo sprayed on various axle parts

I would be seriously bothered by that to the point of probably redoing it but it would not keep me from buying one

maybe there can be an option on the order sheet, which will be "gloppy goo delete package"
