Pros: rugged good looks
Cons: interior noise level (at times)
Advice: Be realistic as to the reasons you are buying this vehicle; you will be more than satisfied.This is a truck-so, don't expect it to handle as a more nimble vehicle. After owning two H1's, I can say that, for me, these have been two of the most reliable trucks which I have driven. The H1 is fun to drive in town or off-road. Given it's size, it is a surprisingly easy truck to manuever-even in close city driving. With the turbo engine, it has acceptable acceleration for traffic manuevering.
Pros: open top
Cons: fit and finish alot of plastic.. but cheap to replace plastic parts
Advice: buy it for what it is fun not for everyday but I could drive it everydayDrove it bought it... Spent Memorial Weekend at beach. Unstoppable,, lets face it for $800 buy the 3rd jump seat. and you have a 6seater open top. On saturday i Pulled out 3 different types of vehicles stuck in soft sand...what a joke. 1 2003 Cadillac escalade 2. Land rover Discovery (I saw 3-4 other rovers get stuck. amazing what marketing can do these people thought there Discoveries were unstopable.) the last one amazed me a Mercedes G500 he had at diff. locked and still managed to bury himself up to the sill in sand... you want a the best then buy the best.
Pros: the looks
