I recently bought a used 2 door Tahoe, and have noticed I'm about as big as an H2 or H3, not sure what the difference is.
It's the person that is civilized in the vehicle, not the vehicle making people civilized. I always find the guys in the big wheels being very nice about squeezing in and out of spots on the road, it's the little fuel misers (love it, misers) that seem so stressed out they couldn't care about anyone else on the road. Maybe those light weight seats make their backs so sore they are miserable misers.
I don't get it, my new truck is a lot of fun and I admire Hummers more now than I ever did, being that I'm about as large on the road.
There is a time and place for practicality. If you're going bankrupt in the near future, then yes, drive a miser vehicle, because it's the right thing to do. If you're doing good, then drive something fun. It's only 1 life we get to live.

A Hummer FUN?? I'd think a vehicle that gets 6 mpg, does 0-60 in 20 seconds and tops out at 85mph would be about as fun as a toothache.

Is that all they'll do? That's crap!!! If I was only getting 6 mpg I'd at least want it to go!
Drive one while you can. They're re-launching a CAFE regulation which will see stuff like this very unpopular. I mean, you can't pretend it's a commercial vehicle, can you?

Hummers are such a waste. For the soccer moms who think they need this to tote their 2 kids around, your crazy. I tote my 2 kids around in a Hyundai Elantra GLS, and guess what, they're fine.
Oh, and I'm getting 40 MPG while doing it, what are you getting? 13 gallons to the mile? And yes, I meant to say gallons to the mile.

Fuel economy is no worse than Chev pick up with the same engine. If you want fuel economy, go buy a smart car!

Yuck! Don't buy a smart car like the above commentor posted! Those take premium fuel and only get 35 MPG average. I drive an '08 Civic that takes regular and I get 46 MPG!

Safety First... I'll go head to head with any other vehicle in my Hummer and I will win. Wouldn't put my family in any politically correct vehicle just to pretend I care about the earth. You can worry about the environment, and I will worry about the safety of my kids. This vehicle is a fantastic machine.

I am sorry you would have to pretend to care about the Earth and not REALLY care about it so your kids may have a better place to live someday... since they'll be the only ones left after you crush every small car on the road in your "winning" spree. Besides, if you don't worry about the environment, how safe are your kids really going to be someday? Gee, never thought about that did ya?
This is truly sad. Makes me glad Hummers will now come with Chinese instructions on the sun visors!! Send this junk overseas.....
Way to be environmental and responsible. We'd ALL be safer if these tanks no longer clogged up our roads wasting materials to build them and gas to move them. Yeah, fantastic machine... that gets 10 mpg. NICE!! You should really buy one of those semi's that has been converted to an SUV, you know, in case you come up against another Hummer and still want to win!!
