I owned it for 3 months and had to get rid of it, it was becoming too much of a problem. It was in the shop for 2.5 of those three months I owned it. The sunroof repeatedly leaked and was repeatedly repaired. The drainage issue also caused water to get inside the vehicle constantly and left aweful odors. The engine light came on for a temp sensor, needed an alignment, brakes and rotors right away, the ignition had to be replaced as it left me stranded several times due to passlock failure, the windshield wipers would intermittently work or not work. The last straw was more electrical issues. The blower motor would intermittently work, all tue lights kept turning off and on, the door locks would lock and unlock themselves, ecu went bad.
2007 Hummer H3Jet - Greensboro, NC10/03/2011
I bought this Hummer after scouring the market for a few months. I was very impressed with the build quality of this vehicle, it is a tight, well made, solid car. Ride quality is outstanding, shifting is seamless, build quality is flawless. I didn't buy this vehicle for fuel economy, but I have been satisfied with the ratings of 16 city and 19 highway. I am getting virtually the same mileage. Fit and finish on this vehicle is better than I expected, real thought was given to layout and function. I wish Hummer could do a better job of marketing, I believe a vehicle of this quality could still find a market here in the USA.

2006 Hummer H3Harleydriver - tampa, fl02/10/2007
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.
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.
