I really like the Hummer H3 feels solid and able to take anything on the road. Engine is underpowered but, it is an H3. It is on a truck chasis but, is a SUV. The inside feels safe especially if you are concerned with a roll over. The Hummer H3 is very quiet on the road and you really feel or hear the road doing 65 + miles an hour. I would recommend this vehicle to anyone.
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.
It can be very stressful and costly for a family of 4 with small children to travel safely to grandma's house, after school activities, or even the doctors office. With all of the restrictions on safety seats that take up entire rows of seating not to mention being limited to the options of minivans that cost $40k and SUVs that take up 2 parking spaces and offer zero visibility. Our family was confident when we purchased a 2006 Suburu Forrester wagon that we had made a positive choice. Not so, at 6 feet tall I found an economy class middle seat on a packed airplane provided more legroom and overall comfort than our wagon. Two carseats later I got anxiety at the mere site of the vehicle and the potential discomfort it would soon provide me with as soon as we had to all go anywhere. We found solace in the option of an H3 Hummer. In a million years I never would have thought this was an option. There is a lot of bad stigma associated with this brand based on the misconception that there is poor fuel economy (Unlike the Hummer and H2 this one gets 18 mpg city, and 22 hwy its actually quite impressive). GM will honor warranty and service this vehicle at any location since there are no Hummer locations anymore. I consider that a bonus since as an owner I can take it to any dealership that services any vehicle in the GM fleet. This vehicle is very roomy, the visibility is amazing, I feel totally safe and we fill up on gas once a week regardless. Honestly I was looking for the roominess in a used Ford Flex which turned out to be very rare and way out of my price range. Mini vans seem to hold their value in used car pricing but again, way to much $$$ to start with. Neither of these options would have offered a noticeablybetter fuel economy. The bottom line is that this is an incredible option and hits on all the needs for my family. I did not purchase this as a commuter car to put 50 miles or more a day and sit in traffic, that would be a bad idea. If this is an a concern you should pass on this vehicle. It fits in a single parking spot, basically its like parking a jeep cherokee, and has an incredible turning radius. Too bad that Hummer couldn't stay in the game during the last fuel crisis, because this model in particular is hands down superior to any SUV I test drove in every way that mattered. Seriously consider this vehicle as an option if you are lucky enough to find one, at least give it a test drive.
