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.
Try the H2

Maybe if I didnt own a H2 before, I would rate the H3 better. It does however drives very well in the snow. The H2 is 10x better.

I was very pleasantly surprised with this vehicle. It handles WAY better than I expected it to. It gets better gas mileage than my V6 Dodge 1500 did as well.
I've had it for a few months now and have no complaints. The blind spots aren't nearly as bad as I had expected, and I have been unable to make the car spin out yet, so it feels very safe to drive.
It doesn't have a whole lot of power for acceleration, but it doesn't really feel underpowered either.
This vehicle is vastly different than an H2, and they aren't even made by the same people. GM makes the H3s based on Hummer specifications. It's just a cool SUV that doesn't look like a "mom" car.
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.
