2007 Hummer H3Bullmoose - High Point, NC06/15/2010
I am really enjoying my Hummer H-3. Seating is very comfortable and has superior headroom (I'm 6' 2"). I also like the styling. It turns heads and draws favorable comments practically every time I drive it. Nice interior. The Hummer pulls strong with a trailer. Handling is good too.
Mileage around town is 14 mpg, exactly as advertised. Haven't had it on any long trips yet to check the open road mileage but I expect 19 to 20 mpg. It doesn't have a lot of "punch" acceleration from a stop that I had expected from a V-5 engine. However has plenty of power, even when pulling a load uphill. It is in constant 4WD. Would have preferred a 2WD capability that likely would have improved gas mileage.
Driving comfort is what you would expect from a vehicle with off road potential, just a tad stiff and bumpy but much better than the Jeep Liberty that it replaced.
You can shut the engine off and remove the ignition key while the Hummer is still in gear. Then it will roll forward or backward if you are parked on even a gentle slope.
Unless the H-3 has the tow package option you will need to have the vehicle wired for towing electrical connections if desired. There isn't a 7 pin plug connection unless you have the towing package option.
Wife loves driving it too. Her usual vehicle is an Accura TL.
They’re big. They’re bold. They’re kinda in your face. Tall pickup trucks and SUVs have the kind of ride height that gets you over, through, and around the kind of rough terrain which stops other vehicles in their tracks. If you live in a place with lots of snow, mud, or uneven ground, ride height (defined as the distance between the bottom of your truck’s tires and the lowest point on the underside) is probably more important to you than road-hugging and handling characteristics and strong fuel efficiency.
