My Hummer was a gift from my husband. I have had a: Jimmy, Blazer, Suzuki, and Explorer(all 4 WD SUV's) and NOTHING compares to this Hummer. It totally rocks. I feel safe and confident on the road in blizzards or rainy down pours. On the highway with the semi's I know I will get home to my family at night. The ride is smooth and the vehicle is well made; nice and solid. With budget cuts in our city, the streets are not cleared of snow until we have several inches. The only thing you will see moving on the roads are...Hummers!! P.S. My insurance is cheaper on my Hummer than it was on the Explorer. Gas mileage was the same.
The H2 is a beautiful car. No doubt about it. It commands attention and respect on the road. Comfort is exquisite. Luxury in the details - for sure. you get a feeling of security and power in this car - not power like an executive, but true power - like strength to pull others out of snow,etc. It runs well in the snow. Drawbacks include; gas usage - they need to come out with a hybrid version. you get about 10-12 miles per gallon - depending on how you drive - not good for environment or your pocket! another drawback is the leather. When buying a hummer, check the seats out. They crack rather easily. I suggest leather conditioner - love your leather! - especially in the cold weather. Last drawback is seating arena. It has 6 seatbelts. I would have preferred 7 - but not a big loss. Overall - a sweet ride. safety, strength, style, power. I am concerned about the envoronment and gas usage - so I eagerly await a hybrid version. As far as the leather - they should use a better quality leather that resists cracks.
In the past 10 years I have owned a Honda Passport, a Nissan Stanza, a Jeep Wrangler and a Honda Civic Si coupe and this is the first time in I can say "I LOVE THIS CAR". The inline 5 is more than enough power for city driving and does very well on the highway. Just this last week (March 2010) I drove from Oklahoma City to Galveston and averaged 18 miles per gallon. In the city I average about 15. I would recommend this car to any looking for a comfortable, beefy SUV with constant 4 wheel drive.
