The best worst decision you'll ever make. by Pengadil, Shropshire, UK. on 04/26/2013. Trim: 2002 Hummer H1 Wagon, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Off road ability. Heritage. Substance. Rarity, Nothing like it. I think it has a certain charm to it despite it's "box on wheels" look. Not as loud as you think compared with a Land Rover Defender. No other vehicle has the same presence apart from the Tumbler. Residuals are increasing as they become rare. The wagon has impressive cargo space where as the Open top offers Al Fresco driving. Arnie loves them. Ideal for the school run on the Gaza Strip.
Cons: Extreme width takes a while to get used to. The cabin is dominated by the 6.5 TD engine whilst the passenger is wedged in each corner. Aluminium/Steel doesn't mix so it rusts. Can go through parts quickly due to 3.5t weight. Expensive to buy. Expensive to fill with diesel. Pre 2000 model has engine fault. Make sure 4th digit on the vin is an 'F' not a 'Z'. Only available in Left hand drive (I live in UK). The idiotic H2 and H3 have given the brand a negative image. Attracts attention and irritating questions from peasants and tree hugging blue queers from Avatar.
Overall review: It's too big, too wide, too expensive, too impractical, too thirsty. It makes absolutely no sense in buying one. But since when did all that matter?
