I recommend this suv to anyone. Dead-Square, Upright Profile An H3 might be smaller and gentler, but it still doesn't pretend to be anything other than what it is: A capable, traditional Sport Utility Vehicle that looks the part of a serious off-road machine. For 2008, the H3 adds a new trim level, the Alpha, with a more powerful V8. S Importe waren entweder in Unfälle, Diebstähle oder Überschwemmungen verwickelt und werden trotzdem in Europa zum Verkauf angeboten. The horsepower peaks at 5,600 rpm -- pretty useless -- but the torque peaks at 2,800 rpm -- closer to where you want it. Driving it makes you feel like a kid driving a tonka toy. Cons, gas mileage the same as other 4x4's meaning poor.
Some complaint for poor visibility but with big rear mirrors as it has and back up camera that I added I feel very confident parking or anything. But she added that the team is very satisfied with the results of its efforts, which included a one-third increase in towing capacity to a now-credible 6000 pounds, as well as meeting the same safety standards specifically for cabin intrusion in severe frontal collisions as the inline-five model's. But there is a bright side; all that extra power comes with only a 1 mpg penalty compared to the significantly weaker in-line five. The transmission was modified to accommodate a larger-diameter torque converter, and the front anti-roll bar was beefed up to handle the 100 pounds of additional weight. They are the Adventure package and the Luxury package. A rearview camera and a navigation system are optional. Back on pavement, grip measured 0.
Without losing appreciable off-road capability, the H3 produces a far more civilized experience than bigger Hummers, especially when compared to the original H1. Engineers Were Busy Certainly, said engineers already had enough to do in their efforts to squeeze the longer, wider, and heavier small-block V-8 into the tight engine bay of the H3, designed as it was for the narrower inline-five. All H3s come standard with an electronically controlled four-wheel-drive system sporting traction control, underbody shielding, an optional rear locking differential, and the buyer's choice of two tire packages: Goodyear 32-inch, all-terrain tires or Bridgestone 33-inch off-road tires. Bright-accented instruments are small but easy enough to read. Before you start comparison shopping, be sure to check the Fair Purchase Price, which shows the typical transaction price the H3 fetches in your neck of the woods.
Quality is great, performance is very good. The torsion-bar front suspension is pushed forward 2. And this new H3 is arguably better than the original civilian whopper because it's less bulky: 16. The exterior has that tough look but still kind of exotic. Took it to the dealer to do whatever needed to have the peace of mind and runs incredible smooth even better that my last one since I put four new Michelin on this one.
Drivers window control failed, radiator had to be replaced, all under extended warranty. The recall began February 26, 2016. Visibility isn't as impaired as the squat windows might suggest, and is helped by no-nonsense rectangular mirrors. Already a competent off-roader, the thirsty V-8 transforms the H3 into a truck that's much easier to live with in urban and suburban jungles, which many H3s call home. Then came the Hummer H3. Hummer engineers admit—begrudgingly—that we're going to be stuck with it until the next all-new H3 comes along, which won't be happening any time this decade.
At drive up window here the young man said, sir love your hummer. Originally, the four-wheel-drive H3 came with a 3. I missed it so much that I just bought my second h3 a month ago same year with just over 100k miles. Looking for another one now. Great car, I'm keeping mine forever!! It is very rugged and well built.
Dealers can install a wrap-around brush guard and side steps in a choice of three styles. All of the others I test drove were so under powered.

Faults: At press time nothing has gone wrong, just a slight reminder of low pressure tire during cold weather.
Even fast food windows and pharmacies were a pain. Anyway is enough power for everyday needs. Rear parking assist and navigation systems are available, as is OnStar with turn-by-turn navigation. It has the torque required to crawl over boulders, but is short on the horsepower needed for the freeway. . We believe Hummer is on the right track with the H3 Alpha, but it would be much better with more gears and less weight.
Some say that the windows are a bit small or narrow. Mit anderen Worten, das Auto ist reif für den Schrottplatz. A full-size spare is rear-mounted on the swing-out tailgate. Amusingly, driving an H3 in L. Back on the highway, however, we yearned for something more. Its a hummer and the style, name and image it has just sets it off. Took him out and showed it to him.
