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...

namrfumot 08-15-05 02:54 PM

I've gotten plenty of in the past...

After my prom...
While on vacation...

What would Michael Moore say?

nemein 08-15-05 02:56 PM

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.

Groucho 08-15-05 02:57 PM

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.....

CRM114 08-15-05 03:03 PM

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.

To answer your question, no, I don't want one.

I suppose I was looking for those in the affirmative. But thanks for sharing! :up:

Minor Threat 08-15-05 03:15 PM

CRM114 - I honestly think it looks very similar to the 2005 Jeep grand Cherokee which probably has a much friendly price tag.

But if you've got a small piedanker, get the HIII...... -wink-

Don't get me wrong, I like the design of the car but the reason is that I don't buy domestic cars.

what kind of chick prefers a guy driving a giant penis-mobile over a guy driving a sensible gas-saver?
the kind that puts out on the first date.

seriously though - the last thing I want is a girl I can buy with flashy cars and money and whatnot... shallow bitches make my dick soft. By the way - that mercedes truck is fugly imo.

Ranger 08-15-05 03:19 PM

I like SUVs and all, but the Hummer just seems too fat and flashy.

kvrdave 08-15-05 03:22 PM

I think they will sell the hell out of those things. I am a little surprised that they went with a 5 cylinder, but I remember the Audi 5 cylinder was absolutely bullet proof, so maybe it will turn out for the best. I wouldn't have a problem with the MPG of the thing, either. It seems fine for what it is, but it does seem like one should get better than 2 MPG better with 3 less cylinders. However, my Honda Element actually gets a little worse mileage than our 6 cylinder Oddysee.

But I can definately see the appeal of the H3. I would take it over any full sized SUV, and over any medium SUV as well.

Giantrobo 08-15-05 03:28 PM

I like the new H3's. :up: I saw one on the raod a few weeks ago and I was impressed.

I've heard that said about the Original Durangos.


BTW, I don't know about the H3's on "Nasty Terrain" but this H2 didn't do so good.;)

Hummer Bummer Watch it in Full Screen so you can see what happens. $$$$$$$

Geofferson 08-15-05 03:35 PM

It's a nice SUV, but not interested since it wouldn't look right parked next to my Prius.

Jeez the Cherokees are so outdated looking. It's time to start with a clean slate.
