Too Bad They Are Gone

2008 Hummer H3 gpdfinest - Sarasota,Fl. 06/21/2011

I love the look of the Hummer H3. It just has a great presence. However, that said, engineering wise they didn't do a great job. For instance, I have heated seats and they repeatedly go on when getting into the vehicle, both driver and passenger sides. Also, the metal whip antenna hits low hanging branches often. This is an off-road vehicle so why have that extra interferrence. The Typhoon radio is awesome with a separate sub-woofer but they didn't include an i-pod interface or even a play connection. The vehicle is heavy yet it corners unbelievably and has a great turning radius. Gas mileage is no worse than say a Jeep. About 14-15 mpg around town. Havn't check highway trip mileage yet. The engine is sluggish but then I didn't buy it for performance. Overall, with the exceptions noted, the H3 has been very good. No issues so far. Luckily still under full warranty for peace of mind. Too bad they (GM) didn't have the time to let the engineering evolve.

I love my Hummer!

2007 Hummer H3 Demon girl - San Diego, Ca 04/20/2009

I was really looking to buy a Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, but after test driving the Hummer on a whim I was sold! It's amazing off road and on the highway it handles like a dream. I've always have customized V8's and I was leary about such a small engine; but I can easily keep pace with the big boys! The only thing I'm not in love with is the placement of the window controls...they're too far back on the arm rest of the doors (unless you have stumpy arms). I adverage about 17 miles to the gallon (not the 20 that was advertised), but I have a heavy foot so I'm sure that's where the difference is. Overall, I love my Hummer!

2007 Hummer H3

2007 Hummer H3 LS3CAM - SoCal Mountains 03/13/2011

It is sure a shame that GM had to shed the Hummer brand. The H3 is one of the most capable 4X4s ever. The wife and I needed to add and additional vehicle to our household. It had to be either a truck or SUV, and had to be four wheel drive. We live in the SoCal Mountains and get quite a bit of snow in the winter. The H3 is full time four wheel drive with four wheel lock and four-low lock. The inline 5 cylinder engine provides decent power and fuel economy. It has plenty of room inside for all of the kid's baseball and football equipment. It is the perfect size! Not too big and not too small. I would highly recommend this vehicle to anyone needing a mid-size 4X4 vehicle.

Hummer H3 Overview

A leading off-road and utility vehicle, the Hummer H3 is Hummer's tribution to the midsize SUV and midsize pickup category. Produced between 2005 and 2010, the H3 is an incredibly viable used vehicle. Based upon the modified GMT355, the H3 exists as Hummer's smallest model while being the only one to be manufactured by General Motors.

Hummer H3 History

The H3 was inspired by the original, military-exclusive Hummer and Hummer's larger H2. The Hummer H3 debuted in 2006, existing as one of GMs most consumer-based products. Crafted as the premium truck brand's entry-level vehicle, it served as an alternative to typically gas-guzzling products.

Available as a midsize pickupthe H3T as a traditional, midsize SUVthe H3 Hummer's "in between" purchase for most. Packing an automatic transmission and strong towing capabilities, the H3 allowed for diverse driving without sacrificing cross-town functionality.

Different from the H1's off-road design, the 2006 Hummer H3 sold as a sport utility vehicle due to its four-wheel drive accessibility. In 2007, the H3 introduced the H3X urban-centric style package, followed by the V8-powered Alpha version in 2008. The following year, Hummer released the H3T crew cab truck alternative version.

While the Hummer H3 ceased production in May 2010, its Alpha upgrades are still noted within the industry for the leather seats, premium seven-speaker sound system, and enhanced interior.

How It Drives

The H3 packs a surprisingly reactive suspension. Often cited as "springy," the H3's ride does deliver an easygoing experience. Its interior amenities, like its optional XM radio in all trims, certainly adds to the comfort. Smooth on both city streets and highways, the H3 with tight angles, quick approaches and rapid turns.

It handles well,avement irregularities will be noticed as the H3's suspension takes effect. Its automatic acceleration is quick and smooth from low speeds and standstills, and the 2008 H3 excels via its 3.7-liter engine. Previous 3.5-liter versions, however, may lack adequate passing power. The H3 emits low driveline noises at low speeds on highways and city streets.

Used Hummer H3 Value

While older H3 versions will cost a bit less, purchase quality is reduced by their lack of engine upgrades and handling.

On newer H3 models, value is derived from the V8 engine, standard four-wheel drive, off-road capabilities, and on-road handling. While a used but late-year H3 will cost more than leading alternatives, it will pack more value over typically prioritized exterior build looks and on-road comfort. A lacking interior and poor fuel economy make other alternatives better, if towing power and consistent drives aren't top concern.

Design & Performance

The H3 is considerably more "civilized" than larger Hummers, packing a solid performance without neglecting off-road capabilities. Highway riders are paid much-needed attention, as the H3's lightweight design allows consistent performance across all arenas.

That said, off-roaders who require Hummer's reknown cut-throat performance may be left unsatisfied. On five-cylinder models, the H3's automatic transmission can become rough when transitioning from low to high speeds.

Powertrain & Engine

The Hummer H3's first edition is available with a 3.5-liter, straight five-cylinder L52 engine-which produces 220 horsepower and 225 pound-feet of torque. In subsequent years, the Hummer is available with the following engines and powertrains:

  • A 3.5-liter L52 inline-five engine
  • A 3.7-liter LLR inline-five engine
  • A 5.3-liter LH8 V8 engine

2009 H3 models benefit from a 239-horsepower upgrade, which produces 241 pound-feet of torque. Revised EPA test standards, when equipped to any later-year H3 models, can boost fuel economy to 40 mpg and 18 mpg on roads and highways, respectively. V8 purchasers can expect a 300-horsepower variant which produces 320 pound-feet of torque.

Body Style & Interior Comfort

Carrying short overhangs and a wide track, newer H3 models are shorter than they appear. A used model will, however, pack the following across most trims:

  • Hummer's signature seven-slot louvered grill
  • A full-size, rear-mounted spare tire
  • A swing-out tailgate
  • Locking rear differential
  • Off-road suspension

Inside, drivers can expect supreme comfort with the H3's prioritization of space abundance. While requiring an upward climb to enter, the H3's side steps are certainly useful. On later models, the H3's optional leather upholstery is a welcomed luxury addition.

Remote keyless entry, cruise control, and an OnStar communications system are standard among most models, as is Onstar's Safety and Security package. And, the Hummer H3 hasn't cut any corners on comfort and safety.

Top 10 Cars with High Ground Clearance: Reviews, Photos, and More
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.
