This is the best SUV I have owned. I drive the Alpha model that has the 5.3 V8. That is the only H3 I would want. All of the others I test drove were so under powered. The 5.3 pulls great. I leveled the front end and put 35" tires on it. It still rides and drives like factory. The interior is tight and the gauge layout is just right. I would recommend this to anyone.

This is a well-made car with the roughness of the Jeep but the comfort and styling of a Cadillac. Lots of power and yet still good on gas! Couldn't ask for a better midsize SUV. It is sad that they are no longer making them. I will DEFINITELY have bought a new one!

Best SUV I Ever Owned

I just bought my 2008 H3. I got a great deal and am very happy. THe interior is very classy, not opulant but not cheap and the leather is very very nice. The two tone leather and dash is sweet. The exterior has that tough look but still kind of exotic. Its a hummer and the style, name and image it has just sets it off. I got black,chorme and creme interior. I seems to have fine power and drives like a tank but with great reponsiveness. It is a little bouncy but it reminds me of what it is. I think the storage space is a little small for such a large vehicle, but thats ok. The rear door ways are a little small but I never sit back there anyway, LOLOl Anyway, Im very happy, impressed and I love. I get looks, comments and compliments. I never received these from my Lexus 300, Bmw 318i or Mercedes M class. Tough look, luxury interior and different styling with the HUMMER badge. Whats not to love. Reliablity is still to be seen, I have 380 Miles on it.

This is the coolest vehical I have owned. Traded in a 2003 lexus for this truck and am loving every minuet. Great in the snow. I also own a '99 lexus rx300 and the all-wheel drive on the lexus is great, I thought no vehical can be better (wrong) HUMMER way better. Not real big on cargo so take that into acccout if you look at these trucks but very comfy and fun to drive.

I have owned alot of vehicles. This is by far the best vehicle as well as best SUV made. Quality is great, performance is very good. Seats are flexible fold down and when up adults can use the rear seats. Great leather very durable. HVAC controls are very easy to use and understand. Ride is superior to Tahoe, Suburban, Durango, Expedition, Jeep, FJ Toyota, It is like a sportscar SUV (I own a Corvette also) that is un stoppable off road. Much better than even the H2. It is very rugged and well built. It was a little pericy but with the discounts now it is a bargin. I didn't really understand how good it was until we owned it for a while. Looking for another one now. Cons, gas mileage the same as other 4x4's meaning poor. No steering wheel audio controls,Back up camera not integrated with navigation system,(it's with the rear view mirror) Fog light switch next to a similiar sized phone button. Radio does not have input for Ipod, No rear seat heat or air conditioning ducts.

I just got my H3 and I took it to the desert the following day for a little fun. I have to say that i am very impressed with the vehicles performance and comfort. It took everything i gave it and was begging for more of a challenge. I didn't even have to put it into it's 4wd low lock with the exception of one tough crawl up the side of the cliffs with very deep sand on a very steep incline. (From a dead stop). Everyone's got their own opinion but if you wanna feel like your driving a tank with sports car feel. This is the one!! I hope you enjoy.

As a short person at 4'10", I'm so grateful to have a vehicle that gives me the road perspective with a height advantage; that I could get a good sitting position is amazing. I do wish the H3 had a locking glove compartment, removeable backseat headrest (so I could see rear better) and a wider driver side mappocket, oh, an eyeglass holder too. But, I am enjoying my new ride which is firm and grizzly.
