Pros: The looks and Gas mileage
Cons: The 3rd seat its a little cramp
Advice: Buy it you wont regret itThis vehicle is the best, never owned a suv that gets this much attention in my neighborhood. The interior of the car is looks kinda cheap, but that dosent matter when u go off-roading in the woods, the seats are the best in the factory except the 3rd row its kinda cramped for adult. The ride is great silent and smooth on L.A higways, does get a little engine itrusion when accelerating hard inside the cabin but unless u like the sound of 325hp V8 coming out of your muffler this is the vehicles for you. gas mileage is okay considering this 3 1/2 ton beast. get around 13 in the city but the hwy you can get up to 24 mpg if you keep in cruise control @ 68mph, but most of the time you'll get around 19 or 20mpg. The manufacturer says this car gets 10city and 13hwy but thats not true, there was a mistake. Payload is awesome this baby can haul more that a full size TRUCK!!!!! 2,500lbs to be exact. My F-250 can hold up 1,850lbs.
Pros: The Vehicle is very luxurious! You get what you pay for!
Cons: Like all SUV's of this magnitude - Gas Mileage!
Advice: Safest thing on the road for your family!We took this baby on the highway doing well over 80 miles an hour and there was no squeaks, no shimmy nothing! Could steer with one finger. I didn't expect that in a 4x4 and certainly not one with this type of weight. I love my H2!!!!!
Pros: Riding above everyone
Cons: Lack of storage in the back
Advice: You have never owned anything like it. I promise.This is hands down the best vehicle I have ever owned and that is many. Nothing comes close to comparing. People look at the H2 like it's a flying saucer. You could spend $500,000 on a vehicle and not get the looks you get in this thing. I spent 2 hours going over every inch of my H2 and I have never seen anything made like this. It's like a safe with big tires. I love it. I thought it would ride like an earthmover, but it rides like a new Caddie.
Pros: the folding mirrors
Cons: small storage areas up front for miscelleneous items
Advice: Buy it! But know that you can expect poor fuel economy.I love this vehicle! I wasn't sure it would take the place of my truck but it has and has plenty of power to pull anything my truck could. It handles extremely well on the road, although parking takes some getting used to due to the overall width. The only drawbacks I've found in the 5 months of ownership is little storage nooks and crannies that it lacks up front for the driver or passenger to place items. Off road handling is amazing.
Pros: the smooth ride
Cons: Nose Prints
Advice: its a Blast have fun! tint the front windowsvery smooth ride, like a cadillac, I have tryed to get it stuck and no luck yet, great in Ice & Snow. worst part is the peoples nose prints on the glass, as they stare inside.
Pros: Gawk factor
Cons: More power maybe?
Advice: Go for it if you have the moolah.The first test drive pretty much did it for me and my wife. Drives like nothing one would expect. Very comfrotable and luxurious ride. Goes over big potholes and bumps smoothly. After three months couple of creeks can be heard in the cabin but are admissable with a vehicle of this size.
Pros: Gawk factor
Cons: Spare tire location
Advice: Best overall SUV out there. Go for it if you're not an envoirnmentalist or have the bucks.Had no idea when I took the wheel how comfortable the drive and handling would be. This monster feels and handles like a sedan... only difference is that you are sitting higher than 97% of other vehicles on the road. Power is adequate though could be better. The initial test drive pretty much did it for me and my wife.
