I'm sick of these damn H2 vehicles! I know GM is making a ton of $$$ off of them, and I congratulate them for that, but it would've been nice if they didn't mess with a good thing- the original Hummer. The H2 looks like a Tonka truck and I hear the gas mileage is terrible. It tries to take the rugged military look of the original, and blend it with a new more modern,fashionable look. The result in my opinion is hideous! Just my $.02..... What do you think?

i love it, im getting one in 2 months when my7 lease is up

I think it's nothing but a Tahoe with an over sized body, built for people looking to compensate for their shortcomings.
Link Posted: 5/21/2003 10:11:43 AM EDT
Well, the fact that it's at the absolute bottom of every reliability survey I've seen certainly doesn't help, especially in light of the pricetag...

I MUST agree with buffalo soldier. They are a fake looking hummer/humvee. It disappoints me to no end seeing them all over the place. One day I hope to buy a surplus hummvee. Two days ago I read where this country is looking to alleviate many of the national guard units throughout the country. If they do this, it will hopefully flood the market with military surplus hummvees. Again, this is just my .03 worth. Thats inflation on the old .02.

I think they look like a Grand Cherokee on steroids. I don't like the H2 at all. I want a Hummer...H1, the original.
Link Posted: 5/21/2003 10:18:24 AM EDT
Oh come on now.....they are more than capable of handling what they were designed for. Cobble stone paths, speed bumps in the country club driveway and the most demanding mall parking lots anywhere. [rolleyes]

Thank God we live in a country where we can buy it or not. I'd buy one, but I love my 5 too much TXL
Link Posted: 5/21/2003 10:20:47 AM EDT
i like it alot, its good for ppl. who want a hummer but can't afford the H1
Link Posted: 5/21/2003 10:39:36 AM EDT
I think the interior is cheap and flimsy. For 50+K I expect alot more than a Taho with plastic surgury. As far as gas milage, really, anyone that complains about that is just being silly. What, did you think it was a Honda Insight?

How much would a surpluss Humvee cost?
Link Posted: 5/21/2003 10:51:03 AM EDT
The surplus Hummers were going for 10-20k each. But dont expect to ever see them again. They went the way of the water powered cars if you know what I mean.
Link Posted: 5/21/2003 10:51:26 AM EDT
Why do they have a push button 4-wheel drive? whats up with the fact they only come with fully loaded or for 3000 less not so loaded. how about a stripped down model for us hard core 4-wheelers. who the heck needs heated leather seats.

Oh man not this again... you friggen 4x4 loonies. IF there never was an H1, would you think the H2 is pussy? Also, I've noticed that everybody who complains about the H2 being a pussy vehicle CAN'T AFFORD the H1 anyway so quit your bitchin! The H2 is less than half the price of the H1 and it actually is better for street driving. It's faster than the H1 with a higher top speed and is more comfortable. And I think it looks better, but of course that is quite subjective as some people like driving around in a military vehicle.

Hmm, that's what some anti's probably think about us and our "black rifles" as well. Why can't we just get a bolt gun? No longer can people buy things without fitting into a group or being stereotyped. If it's a fast fancy car or a big truck, we're trying to compensate for something.... "no, no, no, I didn't buy it because I wanted it and liked it, I bought it because I'm hung like a mouse, duh."

A Hummer is what the dealer ought to give you after you fork over the excessive dollars for an H2.

Yep, it sucks.... my favorite part is the 3" of front ground clearance it has. Looks like the silly thing has two bumpers, one for the body and one for the pussy chevy truck ifs hanging under it. Is it really only rated for 6500# towing!? This joke just keeps getting worse. My F'in Cherokee is rated for 5k# and it only weighs 3k#! And I'd put money that the little cherokee can out wheel that whale of a pile of monkey shit too!

I also think they are junk. They are built to look like they are for off-roading when they are not. they are made for people to drive on road whie on a Cell telling a buddy how they got a bad ass 4x4. Yes its have the price of the H1. But there are vehicles out there that cost less and do better off road. I aLSO THINK AN H1 should cost about what an H2 does. If they would offer a stripped down H1 with all hose washable interior And cut the leather and nice BS that would be great. And its also time to update that beast its still 1980s tech. It could use a new Duramax engine and An Allison Tranny. that wolud cut dwn on noise and improve preformance. A win win.
Link Posted: 5/21/2003 2:26:37 PM EDT
If I bought one I'd strip the gay ass glossy paint of of it and spray it with some flat Olive Drab. Then I'd cut a turret in the roof and mount a M2 fifty cal. Maybe put some run-flat tires on it if it didn't already have them. I would also give it a self-sealing fuel tank along with armor plated glass and doors just for the hell of it. Finally I would drop that pussy gas engine out for a nice diesel. My friends tell me I'm a little militant but I just don't see where they're coming from.

what's the point? you can get a surplus humvee for less than the POS H2 and some of them come with MG mounts already.

The H2 is not a replacement for the H1. It is like a Model A to a Model T. Have you seen the H3 concept photos. It is going to be a CJ fighter. Comparing it to the "original" is not appropriate. It is a different model.

It would be more fair to compare it to a much cheaper and somewhat lighter Suburban, since that's what's under the high dollar skin. Anyone notice the cheesy hubcaps that are supposed to LOOK like the run flat setup used on the H1? There is no comparing an H2 to an H1 since the H1 is built for off road use almost exclusively, while the H2 wouldn't make it through 10" of mud. At least you'd be comfy while calling for a tow.

I would tend to agree. My point was it is a different model in the product line as opposed to a replacement.

You all sound like you suffer from Hummer envy. Buy an H1 and leave the poor H2 alone. Or better yet, get a hummer form your gal and spend the $90k on something more important, like more guns. If you don't have a girl go buy one for 100 nights.

I think they look cheap and flimsy. kind of look like a giant toy. also kind of boxy the military hummers look much cooler, plus they have all the different configurations, like the M16 of the vehicle world but I have nothing against people who want one
