Have had H3 for two weeks. Very enjoyable to drive. Nicely appointed with leather, sunroof, etc. Average acceleration with 220 HP engine. Excellant turning radius and braking. Headturner. A number of women have stopped me and talked to me about the car. I gives you a very safe feeling to drive, with small windows it feels like you are in an Army tank.Just a nice feeling to know you can "crush everything". The one bad thing is visibility. Thick A and B pillars make is hard to check blind spots and almost impossible to see what you are backing into.
The 2006 H3 is without a doubt the best off-road SUV I have owned. I have had many Jeeps & SUVs, but the H3 blows them out of the water.The H3 looks as cool on the outsdie as it does on the inside, but the inside has tons of space...very surprising amount of space.The engine runs smooth & has plenty of power & for such a heavy vehicle, the gas mileage is awesome...better than the much smaller Jeep Wrangler I had. I have been impressed as this is literally the go anywhere, unstoppable driving machine. It handles great, it has been very reliable, is very well built, very repsonsive, and very good saftey record. The truck is so powerful, it could climb a mountain. I have seen models with over 200,000 miles that are still running strong, which gives me confidence in my H3 lasting for the long haul. I have had offers to sell it and I have turned them down, I am not giving-up my H3 & in fact, I would like to buy another one. Anyone who has off-road experience knows the H3 is the beast or champion of the off-road & the H3 has a full double plated engine gaurd plate that protects the engine and powertrain when offroading to anything being throwing up under the H3 on the hwy. It is the ultimate SUV for any occassion and any situation!
Only had the H3 for a month, but am overall very satisfied. This is the first suv I have owned Ive always owned pickups, but suprisingly am not missing it. The H3 rides good on and off road and I have definitely tested the 4x4 capability to the max and can tell you that it does everything that Hummer says it will do. The only thing negative I could say about the H3 is that I wish it had a little more power. I have the I5 motor in mine and when you get into hills it tends to stay in passing gear a lot of the time. This is the first GM product I have owned and have got to say that their service department is the best I have seen. The dealership I went to had a friendly and professional staff and had one service writer dedicated to the Hummer brand.
