    You know what people say about buying Hummers, right? :D



    Big cars, low mileage ;)

    what were you thinking? :p

    Either way, I find it impractical to drive a hummer, especially in a city like Boston. Buying one is only asking for trouble.

    honestly you cant even compare the H2 and the name hummer. They arent even made by the same manufacturer. The real Hummer is made by AM General, and has a 6ylinder (V6) Detroit Diesel Duramax 6.5L motor. It has a top speed of 65mph, and you know when you go over 40mph, because the tires rumble like crazy. They are offroad vehicles, not adapted for onroad uses.
    I have been in a hummer, and trust me I know their ups and downs. I am very close with my neighbor who has one. We were childhood friends.
    He belongs to the hummer club on Long Island where we live. Their are a few H2 owners who come by for events. The H2 is just not even close to the same vehicle the real one is. The gasoline motor the H2 has is a weakling, barely pushing 200ft/lbs of torque, while the real one is 220Hp at 500ft/lbs of torque.
    I cant speak for fuel economy on the H2, but the H1 gets an amazing 6mpg with the V8 gasoline model, and 12-14mpg with the Detroit Diesel 6.5L motor.

    Keep this is mind, when you buy a H2, you arent getting an insane offroad vehicle, it is a very cheap knock off which is like any other 4x4, it just carries the same name if what a real offroad vehicle is.

    I am not trying to be all mean, I am stating the truth about the H2, it is nothing like the real thing.

    you know the funny thing is most 4 x 4 vehicles these days cant even go off road lmao.

    I remember reading an article in motor Trend where they had this huge competition and like only one the vehicles were actually able to go off road without any problems.
