i think hummers look good,
from a functional standpoint i have no knowledge of them except everyone here seems to hate them mostly for lack of function/capability i am guessing?
but one thing i found critical to not own any model of hummer, or a toyota fj, is lack of being able to see what i'm backing into / over top of;
check how horrible the view is trying to look back there from the driver's seat, if you didn't have a backup cam you may as well just put a blindfold on and punch the gas pedal, and wait for a crunch, crash, or blood-curdling scream.

she wants the 4 wheel drive because her and her husband just built a house in the mountains, and during the winter those roads don't get plowed... so, I told her to go ahead and get the hummer, and I'll hold my breath and wait for her to call me when she gets stuck.

|fkuszaj||Tell her to get a PT Cruiser, I LOVE mine|

|Jeep Island||Of course, Authorized Military Personnel drive HUMVEE's, not Hummers. The stuff called Hummers by GM bear no relationship to the former, which is an outstanding vehicle. It really replaced the M37 and 1-1/2 ton trucks the military used, not the Jeep. There was no substitute for the Jeep.|

I went and test drove an Alpha yesterday afternoon.
That 5.3L V8 is pretty sweet; the trans actually knows what to do with it all too. Giddy-up.
But you can't see out of the frickin' windows. And it has IFS.
Sure would pull my trailer though.

|arrowhead||If that is what she wants I don't see anything wrong with it. It's her that will be driving it. As far as gas mileage I bet it will do about as good as a jeep.|

|Hilldweller||I wouldn't mind having an H3 Alpha|
|04-06-2011 02:45 PM|

|Grog||Went through Tank Trap at Disney, OK once with a hummer. It blew two tires and set off the side air bags. The JKs and TJs had no problems of course|

|BADBOY-RUBICON||She's probably just a 'Mall Crawler'....might as well buy a Hummer....|

|desertgoose||Ask someone for their gas receipt when they top off their H2 gas tank and show it to her.|
|04-06-2011 02:14 PM|
...you could always convince her to get a 2011 sahara with a matching hard top, they look damn close lol
|04-06-2011 02:08 PM|
|repoman100||let her get the hummer, like that you remain the only cool jeep guy at work.|
|04-06-2011 01:51 PM|
There are only 2 Hummers worth getting the H1 and the one you get from a gf :-)
|04-06-2011 01:43 PM|
|vekrause||Take her for a ride in the Jeep, minus the doors and top...|
|04-06-2011 01:33 PM|
Help with a co-worker!
She wants to get an H2! I don't know what to tell her! Every time she talks about it, all I can do is yell "NOOO!" I need help to convince her otherwise!
