First thing I noticed is how heavy the throttle is. Not quick off the start, you really need to push on that pedal to get her going! I take it this is normal...?

Thanks in advance

The heavy gas pedal is normal...it's very good for off-roading. I just use the cruise control on the highway.

The steering is also heavier than other vehicles. Also normal.

If you were to slam the gas pedal, then you will see that the G500 is quite fast off the line. (I have never done it because i just don't see the point.) According to magazines, the G500 will consistently get 7.5-8.5 from 0 to 60 mph. That's pretty fast for a 5600 lbs truck.

If the G has been setting for some time or is BRAND NEW the go pedal will "loosen" up a little, at least mine did. When we first got it to was very hard to push down. Now its like any other benz.
