Anyone Have/Want a Hummer H3?
 
I want one. :drool: Must have one.

A normal sized Hummer although I'm skeptical of the 5-cylinder 220 HP engine.

Yea, with gas prices at there all time low coupled with the great gas mileage Hummers get and the fantastic price tag.... I'm going to get two...

It looks nice until you get to the 18MPG/Highway....

Trigger 08-15-05 02:56 PM

I would go to a dealership and sit in one... then I'd be all set.

My Explorer gets 16mpg...this would be an improvement.

I bought one on a whim. Not that great.

ugh... I don't see how/why anyone would drive anything that doesn't get atleast 25 (if not 30), aside from needing something that large for business purposes.

Moore isn't an environmentalist as far as I know. He's been totally supportive of Detroit. I suppose you are making a snide political remark.

yeah - I was gonna say - 18mpg isn't that bad for a truck this size... the best fuel economy for an SUV is like 21/27 (excluding the escape hybrid)

Minor Threat 08-15-05 02:59 PM

Wow - That looks similar to the new jeep!

1. Snow
2. Lots of snow
3. Safety from asshats
4. Kids and dog and stuff don't fit in a car

IMO Hummers are BIG P.O.S. I have driven one a couple of times and yes its big and people look at you but it is way underpowered and looks like a big turd.

Look at this one. Its a lot more expensive but it kicks ass.

My wife just took my Ford Expedition on vacation with all of her girlfriends to the lake. she kept track of mileage and discovered the astounding 13/mpg it gets on the highway.....

She's asking me to look into other vehicles now..... :(

I think the III is the size of a Ford Explorer.....

From what I read, unlike the Explorer and all the other SUV's turned mom-mobiles, the H3 can actually do some nasty terrain. And it has actual clearance which is nice in the snow.

I agree. The H2 is WAY too big. The H3 is a "normal" sized truck akin to an Explorer or Forerunner.

Isn't the H2 built on the Tahoe frame? It would seem to me that this was built on the TrailBlazer frame quite possibly then.....

Its a modified Cchevy Canyon/Colorado frame. But from what I've read, "modified" if the key word. The H2 isn't built on a Tahoe frame but a "modified" Tahoe frame. Meaning they did it correctly on the Hummer.
