Outstanding Suv, Unlimited Driving Access — HEAD room is limited, but the it drives like a car, gas mileage like a midsize pick up truck, 4 wheel drive comfort in all driving conditions make this an excellent car to own. Adult friendly, but not very kid friendly.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

The smooth ride and zero radius turn makes this Luxury SUV a great riding and driving vehicle.

Cons

The 16 MPG doesn't make it the most fuel efficient vehicle on the road, but the comfort, towing, storage/passenger capacity and size safety offset the gas mileage, that really doesn't differ from any other full size SUV or pick-up.

Favorite Vehicle Ever Owned! — The Hummer H3 doesn't disappoint! It rides like a luxury car and gives great safety for the driver in road visibility for driver, as well as, visibility of you to other drivers on the road! Hate that Hummer stopped production...it will will hard to top by any other manufacturer.

Pros

Awesome styling, excellent handling and overall comfort married to utilitarian brawn.

Cons

Not so kind to the wallet on MPG.

Strong Yet Stylish — The Hummer H3 is a great utilitarian vehicle with incredible style and strength. The all-time 4WD handles beautifully on and off the road. You sit up high on the road and have good visibility. The rear cargo area has ample space to store your gear for any type of adventure. I highly recommend this for the outdoor enthusiast who also likes to look classy driving downtown.

Pros

Very comfortable, exhaust sounds awesome, I love the look of it, She has never had a problem with it that wasn't easily fixable. Everything is very sturdy and works awesome (heated seats, A/C, backup cam, etc.)

Cons

Not the best on gas mileage, but compared to an H2 or H1 it is pretty darn good!

Love It! — I would definitely recommend this car to anyone looking for something in its class. I have driven jeeps and loved them too, but compared to the sturdiness that the H3 had and the luxurious feel, I didn't like them near as much. The V8 alpha version is definitely worth the extra money as the v6 only gives 239 hp and its curb weight is some monstrous number. We took this car camping a few times and my favorite part of the H3 is that it is unstoppable in the dirt. Off-roading in it was a blast!

Love It! — I like the color (bright orange) very much and the fact that it is a 5 speed. It needed the passenger seat repaired when purchased. The Hummer handles very well. Overall, it is a comfortable, fun vehicle to drive. Gas mileage is around 16 mpg and 14 around town

Great Suv, However, 6 Cyl Would Make A Huge Difference — Great SUV. So easy to drive. Very comfotable and spacious.Could use slightly more power on hills with the 5 cyl.6 cyl would make a huge difference, however the H3 is a very nice SUV. Thank you GM. A quality SUV.

I Love It And Love Driving It — The 5 cylinder is good on gas but a little under powered for this vehicle. The chrome package that was added is beautiful and the interior is awsome
