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.
Everything is great so far. The car is running good. No problems.
I am really enjoying my Hummer H-3. Seating is very comfortable and has superior headroom (I'm 6' 2"). I also like the styling. It turns heads and draws favorable comments practically every time I drive it. Nice interior. The Hummer pulls strong with a trailer. Handling is good too. Mileage around town is 14 mpg, exactly as advertised. Haven't had it on any long trips yet to check the open road mileage but I expect 19 to 20 mpg. It doesn't have a lot of "punch" acceleration from a stop that I had expected from a V-5 engine. However has plenty of power, even when pulling a load uphill. It is in constant 4WD. Would have preferred a 2WD capability that likely would have improved gas mileage. Driving comfort is what you would expect from a vehicle with off road potential, just a tad stiff and bumpy but much better than the Jeep Liberty that it replaced. You can shut the engine off and remove the ignition key while the Hummer is still in gear. Then it will roll forward or backward if you are parked on even a gentle slope. Unless the H-3 has the tow package option you will need to have the vehicle wired for towing electrical connections if desired. There isn't a 7 pin plug connection unless you have the towing package option. Wife loves driving it too. Her usual vehicle is an Accura TL.
