2023 Mercedes-Benz G-Class Safety and Reliability

Mercedes-Benz G-Class Reliability Rating

2023 G-Class Safety

The G-Class is yet to undergo an IIHS review or NHTSA crash test, but with a front crash bar, ten airbags, and the weight and shape of the Great Wall of China, you should be pretty safe in case of an accident. For comparison's sake, EuroNCAP gave the G-Class a full five-star overall rating across the pond.

2023 G-Class Reliability

While the 2022 and 2023 Mercedes-Benz G-Class model years have had no recalls yet, the 2021 model suffered from five - a potential loss of ABS and stability control, an eCall system that may fail or provide emergency responders with an inaccurate vehicle location, a malfunctioning seatbelt locking retractor, a faulty front-seat position switch, and a rear door that may open while driving. Mercedes-Benz offers a four-year/50,000-mile basic warranty which includes corrosion protection, a roadside assistance plan, and a drivetrain warranty for the same amount of time/distance.
