    What's the ride quality like on an early to mid '90s W463 G Wagon?

    Ride quality is fine.
    But they handle like a boat.
    As long as you accept that it IS a proper 4x4 you won't go far wrong.
    I loved driving ours.

    The lack of handling doesn't phase me much but I find a firm ride irritating. I have ridden in a friends P38a Range Rover and find the ride very restless.

    If the G Wagon is W123/W124 soft then I will be happy...

    It's very soft - nothing like an old Land Rover. Really quite a nice drive if you don't need to get anywhere in a hurry.
    Super solid old girl in the true Mercedes tradition.
