A vehicle's "value" is only what someone is willing to pay for it. The owner thinks the value of their G500 is $27k, but is that including the work that will need to be done to repair the rust? If the previous owner(s) let rust develop, I would wonder what else was neglected in the upkeep of the vehicle. I would recommend you find a qualified mechanic who knows MB, AND a qualified autobody person to give this G500 a thorough inspection before considering the purchase.

hi guys!

I had an inspection for the car .(at a mercedes dealership). They told me that there is nothing imminently alarming but found this things:\

-transfer case output seal leaking (acceptable price to repair)

-starting issue (long cranking)

-front tires uneven wear , pulling right

What might be the problem with the last two things? (Mercedes said they will need extra diagnosis (money :-) ) (Hope to find out for free from you :-)

Thanks
