As a previous owner of an Escalade and BMW X5 I am impressed. The Alpha has plenty of power when you need it and cruises smooth at 85-90. This thing is build very tough and think it is the ideal vehicle for anywhere. If the term MPG is even a worry keep looking, while I do get 15-16 hwy it isn't pretty when driving in traffic. Overall I think this is a nice all around vehicle but not quite the space of larger suvs. Went between this and a H2 and chose the smaller, and am happy with that choice.

Wish they still made them

We bought our first H3 in 2006 and just bought another used for me in 2010. I SO wish they still made these! Most comfortable SUV out there. Absolutely love the drive and I don't get run off the road out here in TX! Only complaint is takes forever when you step on the gas, but put in a shot of Gumout fuel injector cleaner, and gave me a little more umph! Despite be the best vehicle I've ever owned (out of 10!), if you get a chance, get the extended warranty. After 4 yrs., the security system and engine coil had to be replaced ($1200), but that's about it. If they still made these things we'd get another. Wish someone would buy Hummer and keep in American!

Best Looking SUV Out There!

Just bought my H3 luxury with 40,000 miles. I love the exterior and interior design. The engine is only a 3.7 and its a little underpowered but its not TOO bad. I think GM should of put a bigger engine in it. The fuel economy is whats expected from a mid- size suv. Im getting about 17 mpg combined. I think the interior set-up is one of the nicest from GM. The visibility is not great but not a big issue for taller drivers. The leather is very comfortable and the sunroof is huge! The monsoon system is banging. It turns heads like crazy! I love this car and wont get rid of in until the wheels fall off!

I bought a loaded 2008 H3 with just 30k miles and kept it just 5 weeks before trading it back into the dealership. In that 5 weeks, I had to buy a $150 battery (come to find out it was the third battery the vehicle has went through) and jump start the vehicle 4 times something that you shouldn't have to do to a $25,000 SUV. When it did actually start, I found the 5 cylinder engine woefully under- powered which would be acceptable if it got better that 14 miles per gallon (My trade-in was an '03 F150 4x4 V-8 that got that good!) The H3 looks are fantastic but as my wife "It's all show and no go". That coming from a woman who drives a 2009 Scion xb 4cyc. After 5wks, I traded.

I love this car, SUV, truck, transporter or call it what you like. The only negative comments I ever get is from somebody that does not drive one. My wife and my 2 kids love the HUMMER. Out here in South Africa we have a lot of trails, bush and off road areas and we just wish we had more time to track them all. It parks easy, drive comfy and attracts attention

As a former single Dad and now father of 8 I wanted a truck that never let me down regardless of road conditions so I could always get to my kids or get them where they need to be. H3 is for me! Comfortable, fun, unique, and the power of a full-size truck without the waste of a flat bed I didn't need. Sightlines are nice, ride sits high, and people who know how to use mirrors should have no problem with the Hummer. Back-up assist is nice, but not required if you use your mirrors. Do not buy this truck if you are going to stress about gas! Love the combination of substance under the hood and style throughout! The 4Runner is great under the hood, but can't touch the H3!

4runner owner before ... great to have a V8 powered vehicle ! much more power for towing. Instrumentation is well layed out ... but could use more convenient features on the steering wheel like the H2. Memory front seats would be a nice feature. Ipod and USB ports for the stero system is missing.

Vehicle is very comfortable for long rides, visibility for the driver is limited but you get use to it. The V8 engine is great for passing and climbing up hills. There is some wind noise but to be expected from a Hummer. Suggest to use BF Goodrich TA tires ... better traction than the Goodyear all terrain tires. Door side pockets could be bigger to hold more stuff.

This is my first Hummer and I am impressed with everything. The only complaint I have with my Hummer is the windshield. I am on number three in less than two years. The design of a flat glass gives Hummer that "look" but it is a sacrifice to rock chips and easy breaks in the hot Texas sun. A nice option would be high impact or bullet proof glass.

During the 1970-1980's I owned several International Scout vehicles. They were tough and unstoppable off road. Thereafter no vehicle really took its place. Jeeps just don't cut it and are of the cookie cutter variety. My Hummer is big, tough and safe. Fun to drive and I have been caught in several big snow storms. The H3 can go anywhere and is always reliable. I have no regrets about buying this car. Mine is loaded with all of the options which makes it nice. Dealer support is excellent.

Bought this for my daughter who is a brand new driver. Wanted a "tank" to protect her - we LOVE IT. It rides great and I feel better knowing she is in a tank. Handles really well - didn't know much about these but since most of the new inventory at the dealerships were low and they weren't dealing because of the cash-for- clunkers, we went the used route. Went looking for a truck - buying the hummer h3 was a whim but we are very happy with the vehicle.

I have ridden Harleys and driven sports cars from Porsche to Datsun 280Z. Have driven Army jeeps and 3/4T trucks. Own a new Honda Pilot. This H3 drives and handles like no other vehicle I have ever driven. Can't explain it unless you have driven it. I am 6'3" and it's a little difficult to see through the entire front windscreen (and the rear- view mirror kind of blocks out a part of that frontal view). I have gotten as much as 15.5 mpg driving in mountainous areas (city driving... Ha!). It turns on a dime. My wife and I love it (I bought it for her)... we always have a smile before and after we take it for a drive. No need to have a destination. Just driving it is fun enough!

i've owned 3 hummers my '06h3 was totaled rolled at 45mph no injuries walked away, hummer still running. owneda variety of high end suvs like rangerover's, escalades, etc. alpha by far the best all around vehicle! H3 is safe and a tank, driven from mountains-mud-beach everything in between. V8 is what it needed. lux&adventure without nav. is best way to buy (all stock nav is junk no matter vehicle its in). army reservist h1 is great but H3 is narrow to fit down logging roads, low enough to fit in parking garages, turning radius perfect, incredible ground clearance, i have never gotten stuck pulled out many friends in other vehicles, H3T is the next toy wife will drive my alpha. WOW!!!

I read consumer reports before I bought my H3 and was a little concerned. I am so happy I didn't depend on any review to make my decision. The H3 is the best vehicle I have ever owned. I tried 4 new vehicles in the last three years and have finally got a keeper. I keep trying to use my wifes car when we go for a ride to keep my miles down but she won't hear it. She loves riding in the H3 no matter what mileage it gets. Too many people want to change it with fluff and make it something its not. I bought it because it is what it is sharp lookin, fun to drive and easy to maintain.

This is my second H3! This vehicle has performed on/off road better than I ever imagined. It has that 'solid sound' when you close the door. The Monsoon stereo system is a big plus. I love to off road, why, because I know my H3 can take me places I never imagined going. The Adventure Package has opened up new trails literally. Next stop, Moab, Utah. I know my truck will live up to my expectations and then some! Whether I'm going down the highway at 70 mph or climbing up a steep hill, my H3 holds her own every time!

Loved my 06 H3 Adventure Package and couldn't pass up to opportunity to move up to a 2008. The improved engine and tranny combo have greatly improved the in town driving experience. I've owned Vettes, a Porsche, muscle cars, an Audi, a Lotus among others and the Hummer is more fun than all of them. Even competes with my GTI as a fun to drive vehicle. GM should keep making Hummers.

This vehicle is AMAZING. Yes, amazing in the fact that I'm amazed at why anyone, other than a discounted GM employee would buy one of these things! I have the 5 speed and have driven old dump trucks with tighter linkage. The front seats....are the WORST I have ever sat in. Feels like I'm sitting in a bucket. The side bolsters make my right leg fall asleep because they press in so bad. A cheap attempt at sportscar type seating. The fold down rear seats don't fold down flat. The steering wheel doesn't telescope and should in order to make up for TERRIBLE seating position. Dirt and mud and snow are thrown onto the door handles from the tires. I'd write more bad, but out of "characters remainin

I orginally wanted to buy a H3 back in 2007. At that time, they were all above 30K. I recently test drove one and really enjoyed the look, feel, and ride. With the current pricing, I couldn't pass it up. This is such a neat vehicle and Hummer has delivered on the name.

Just rid myself of a Ford Escape and I absoutly love my New H3 Hummer. I feel like I am in a tank/armored vehicle with almost the interior of a Mercedes. It has plenty of power, drives very smooth and the MPG is better than the smaller Escape. Everything is really nice, not opulant but very nice and exudes quality. Very appropriate for they type of vehicle it is. Very muscular but refined, I dont think I could be any happier.

Have 5000 hard miles on my supercharged Alpha, driving the worst trails of the eastern slopes of the Sierra Nevada/Owens Valley/Death Valley region, then returning home to a sleepy suburb of Los Angeles where my neighbors shiny clean SUV's never see the dirt. The Hummer H3 rocks! The offroad capabilities are truly amazing, and after beating it up on horrific trails, has not failed to get me home. No overheating while crawling in low range straight up rocky canyons, with AC blasting, and outside temps over 100. Smooth ride over ruts and washboard at high and low speed. Had dealer install the optional skid plate protection, good investment. Nav system needs improvement, no guidance offroad!

I waited a long time and did lots of research before buying the H3. Overall, styling, comfort and American made played key factors. After driving the H3 for two months, I couldn't be more happy. It looks good; it's fun to drive, and it has more than enough room for a small family. It also feels safe and solid. I ordered some of the factory performance upgrades (intake and exhaust), and it has proved to have more than enough power for todays driving styles. Not a race car, but a great all around SUV.

I got my Hummer in Feb. and had been driving it for three months. The only problem I had was the speedometer, it was off by 20 MPH, a bit scary with a big hunk of metal like it. Otherwise, I like the car. It is a fun car to drive. I didn't expect the fuel mileage to be great. The car is actually smaller that it really is, most people think it is big, I own and drive small cars, such as Toyota Corolla and BMW Z3. I did not found it hard to handle once I get used to it, which takes about three days. The visibility is poor, but the big mirrors more than make up for it, you need to be careful when you drive, no matter what you are driving anyway.

First off,this car looks awesome! Just sit inside and look really cool, just don't turn it on. Had serious problems from day 3. I've had this car 6 months and it has been in the service department 4 times. The engine however seem more powerful than the regular H3 (my loaner cars) but I'm having a difficult time rating it due to the fact I don't have it most of the time!!! Inside is "space challenged" no room for anything other than the people in it. No backpacks, purses, phones etc... Vision is impaired, be very careful no one is in the crosswalk because you can only see directly in front of you and thats it. In the canyons I find myself leaning to the side so I can see the curves.

I actually love my H3, but the interior design could offer more comfort and storage. I'm 5'10 yet my arms can not rest on the arm rest of the door panel, it's too low. At a stop light, the roof comes down too low in the front, I have to constantly kink my neck down for the light change. There is absolutely no storage space for sunglasses or my purse etc. The exterior design is really cool and powerful looking but just go through one puddle and the dirt and splash from the road goes all the way up the side of the front door and door handles and looks dirty all the time.

I owned a 2006 H3 which I loved and sold it for "Toyota reliability". Since I have had 2 FJ Cruisers and one Tundra TRD (all new) and none of them even came close to my H3. So much so I bought a 2008 H3 and couldn't be happier. There are cars for all kinds I guess so to each his own. For me that means H3 and will for a very long time to come.

Ride was smooth and the monsoon sound system was fabulous making it a pleasure to drive home. This will be my wife's car to drive my 2 year old around, so when mamma is happy, everyone is happy.

Upgraded from an 06 I-5 to the new Alpha V-8. Not a huge difference in city driving or offroad but highway driving is improved 100%. Passing and merging much easier and much less annoying downshifting and hunting for the right gear. Big improvement worth the money.

I owned a 2006 H3 for 2 years and put 45,000 miles on it. Off road pkg. It was great off road, but lack power for pulling and acceleration. I have also owned a 2006 H2. Great truck. The new Alpha is what GM needed to build. The V8 is the answer to the underpowered I-5. I purchased this one with the Off road pkg also. I have not had the chance to take it to the mountains yet as I did the other two. I suspect it will outperform the '06 H3 with plenty of power to spare. I have not had the chance to tow my travel trailer yet, but has to be better at it than the 06. The redesigned window and lock placements were neccessary. Acceleration is great. These are trucks, not race cars.

Just got a new H3 Alpha from Toronto. So far I am extremely pleased with it. It's so solid. Lateral blind spots are minimal with the over-sized side mirrors. I took it to Wal-Mart and Can Tire and it parks with no difficulty, due to its small turning radius and rear vision camera. (A must). Also, with the chrome tubular steps, my kids and 5' wife find it no problem to get on and off it. With the V8 engine, it has enough oomph to get to 80km. I have yet to assess how bad the fuel consumption is (I know..) I love my Hummer H3 Alpha on this day one and I will love it more every day.

I am a 6'6" man who has struggled for years trying to find a vehicle that will keep me comfortable during my 1- 1.5 hour commute (each way). A month ago I bought my H3 and I ride in comfort. I was concerned about gas mileage, but it turns out that my old "small" suv only gets 1 mile per gallon more than my H3 (I drive in Los Angeles and it is all stop and go, gas mileage suffers greatly for all vehicles). I find I don't stop as often now because everyone gets out of my way! This is a great vehicle and I ride in comfort!

This is a loaded 2008 H3X Alpha. My wife shopped all the 'current' updated SUVs - Mazda CX9, Acadia/Enclave, Mountaineer (we've leased five of these in a row). She also decided to look at HUMMER. The dealer let us use a 2007 H3 for a weekend - and she was sold. We also waited to test the H3 Alpha - and that did the trick. The V8 is much smoother, better acceleration and the ride and comfort are excellent. It's still a truck - so don't think it will ride like the other SUVs. But that's part of the reason to buy a HUMMER to begin with. This is one sweet ride. It's too new to assess gas mileage, but again, we know it's not a 23MPG vehicle. Put an H3 on your short list!

I have had my Alpha w/ off road package for little over a month and it is excellent. Without the V-8 engine, there simply isn't enough power to get this beast moving. So far everthing has performed as advertised. Off road . . . Jeep can say their SUV's are trail rated but since the H2 & H3 came along, they rated the trail. Everything else pails by comparison. The only drawbacks are don't plan on just buying a stock Alpha. Unless you want to crush your leather seats sliding out, buy the step assists. Add the chrome gas cap cover and throw in a brush guard and you almost have yourself the 3x package. Well worth the money. For those who want better gas milage: You knew what you were buying.

Sits very comfortable. Good interior quality and layout. I love the styling. Maintains tough Hummer look with more off-road capability than most will need. Nimble and easier to maneuver and park around town than larger SUV's. Fairly tight 36' turning diameter. The 3.7L I5 engine has 242 HP and is enough power for most. It is a definite improvemnet over the original 2006 3.5L I5. The Alpha version has the V8, but I passed on that one. Too new to realistically assess reliabilty. But if 2007 H3 is a measure, then it should be fairly good.

For all of you that have driven the 2006 or the 2007 model H3 and found that the power was inadequate, this is your new Hummer! I love the H3, but the power of my 2006 just wasn't enough. When my local dealership recieved the first shipment of Alphas I went down and bought the first one! This was the best decision that Hummer has made yet! Now the power is great, they have added child locks, moved the window and door lock switches to a more comfortable position, and roof rail air bags are standard now. They are also very reasonably priced for all you are getting!
