Pros: The overall look
Cons: Rear wiper only cleans half a window and slipping transmission
Advice: Check all online comments and problems before buyingI HAVE 7,100 MILES ON THE H3 AND HAD THE TRANSMISSION REBUILT AT 4,000 MILES. Now it slips in first gear after sitting. The dealer said they did everthing they could.The
Pros: The look of luxury.
Cons: I have nothing bad to say.
Advice: I would buy another one without even thinking about it. Hands down it is our favorite SUV ever.My husband and I like our H3. We had a Madza 6 and it was a rough ride, but the H3 rides very well and is not bad on gas. It is so easy to park and everywhere we go we seem to draw attention. Everyone wants to see. We are very thrilled with the room it has on the inside, my hubby is a tall guy, but has leg and head room. We are sold on Hummer's and my hubby is looking at trading in his GMC truck for another H3.
Pros: Moonsoon stereo system with 6 CD changer
Cons: Gas milage could be better
Advice: Great luxury SUV for the priceDuring the test vehicle handled great. Turns were smooth and sharp.
Pros: the awesome front end
Cons: other than afore mentioned.nothing really
Advice: do yourself a favor....try one out.....you will drive it home the same dayhave had my h3 for a couple off weeks.....looked at different makes of suv's not worthy of mention compared to h3.Only couple of draw backs........be careful when backing up,and need better placing of cup holders
Pros: GPS/XM Radio/sound
Advice: Don't buy the H3 if you're looking for fuel economy, that's not why it was built.A follow-up to my review back in March. I've taken my H3 up and down rocky hills and driven from San Antonio to southern IN and in both cases it handles excellently. I will hesitate to say my H3 gets 15/20 MPG as rated. I feel it's more like 12/18 MPG, but that's just me. It's still a great ride with luxury and style. I am 6'2 and my right leg begins to get sore when driving for over an hour, even with cruise control. The moonroof is too big and way too noisy and windy. In my Volvo, I'd open the roof and wind would never come into the car, but the H3 roof is too large and doesn't deflect the wind at all; which doesn't make driving pleasurable like before. Still, I am happy with my H3. Rick M. (San Antonio, TX)
Pros: The overall comfort and safety.
Cons: Backing up
Advice: Get the Lux Package on an '07 H3I've only had my '07 H3 for over a week, but love it. I've been on dirt trails, city roads and freeways. I've already driven in pouring rain and the H3 pushed through large puddles easily (okay, I admit I didn't try to avoid them). The gas mileage isn't the best, but considering it's a 5800 pound vehicle, I won't complain. The ride is awesome and luxurious (I ordered the lux pkge). The nav system and XM Radio make the short commute to base easy and enjoyable. I feel considerably more safer in my H3 than in the Volvo 850 I owned before buying the H3. Completely satisfied at this time.
Pros: two tone leather interior with heated seats.
Cons: haven't found it.
Advice: try onegreat handling on and off road very nice interior. great turning radious and fantastic sterio.
