We all have guilty pleasures, things we know aren't really right but which we can't help liking. All manner of convoluted justifications can be made to salve that guilt but the best way is usually just to admit to the fact that we're occasionally due a little slack. Or, in the case of the Hummer H3, 2200 kilos of slack. The brutalist Hummer isn't a vehicle that's easy to pass off as a convincing alternative to a Land Rover Discovery, but it is a definite statement of something. I love the H3 if only for its ability to paint a look of abject horror on the face of my rather pompous Prius-driving neighbour. Retain a sense of humour and perspective and you could love it too. Here's how to find a used example.
The Hummer H3 is a vehicle that, by almost any objective measure, has no place on British roads. It's hard to think of anything it does that's not bettered by a Land Rover Discovery yet there is a certain appeal to it. Yes, it's brash and hopelessly inefficient both in terms of engineering and packaging but it also represents a line in the sand, a time when the market tired of this sort of vehicle. Out of time and out of place it may be, but it's also inconveniently good fun, especially if you have deep pockets and plenty of land to play on. It's also refreshingly politically incorrect which will be a big draw for some. Unmolested used examples are getting ever thinner on the ground and there aren't any more being made. This could be your last chance to say you were there.
