Re: Original Owners ?
Still have mine, bought in sept 2005, now with 87k on it. Love my H3 , hope to have it a long time, what do I need to pay attention to around 90-100k miles?

Good to hear they hold up with high mileage.

Re: Original Owners ?
Got to visit with my 2006 H3 this weekend bought new in May of 2005 and now in the capable hands of my son in Telluride, CO with 130,000 miles on it and going strong. I said this two years ago, and I'll say it again, Hummers are everywhere in Telluride and you can't drive down main street without seeing at least one H1, and a handful of H2s and H3s.

Re: Original Owners ?
Yup, I still roll around every week or so. I hate how nobody posts anymore, but I guess that's the way of the dinosaurs. I plan on driving my Alpha into the grave. I really don't plan on selling even if I can get my hands on a H1 2door. I plan on keeping old Bess until she just gives up.

1st Hum: 2006 H3 I5 manual, Adventure, rock rails, ucp, OR lights:::RIP from the idiot that T-boned me around a blind corner going twice the speed limit.

2nd Hum: 2008 H3 Alpha, auto, Adventure, rock rails, UCP, markers, Boulder acces HD bumperw/ 9000lb winch, Sroof, back up cam, K&N,

I love my hum. I like going easily where many others struggle, and I love having all the steel around me in a world full of friggen idiots that would fail their go cart license test.

Re: Original Owners ?
I do have to say that I would entertain the idea of a Unimog at sometime even though I still would sell the HUM

Re: Original Owners ?
Strange, this site is still going.

I still have an 08, about 46K miles, but it will most likely be history by Dec of this year (or sooner).

Re: Original Owners ?
F5fstop, great to hear from one of the old guard and that you're still in your '08. I remember the pictures of your white one when it was new. My son has my H3 out in Denver and it's going strong and I don't plan on ever selling my H2. Yes, the H3 side of the forum has gotten much quieter. With over 4700 posts you were a serious help to a lot of us when we got our H3s new. Best of everything to you!

Re: Original Owners ?
It has been a long time since I visited this site. Been on a few others; however, this is only third of fourth post on a Hummer forum in quite a few months (posted a few on X...last week).

Still in the Hummer family, but have the itch to get a new vehicle and since there are no such things as "new" Hummers anymore; guess I'll head back to Jeep.

Take care....

Re: Original Owners ?
Still loving the 2006 H3 over 50K and no real issues other than the dead battery. The battery problem for me stopped when I no longer left the keys in the ignition and put in a rv size battery.
Its a great machine the H3 and planning to ride it till the wheels fall off!!

Re: Original Owners ?
Wow! You guys are still around. Still have my 2006 with 77K on it. Just spent 2K on new tires (originals still have tread!), brakes and rotors. And the damn a/c blower resistor melted its connector. Vaporized a deer at 60 mph and got some fur on my front right tow hook but other than that no major problems. Hope you guys are all doing well.

Re: Original Owners ?
Just popped in to check the forum out and found this thread.

Good to see some of the originals on here. I'm not sure if I qualify as old guard, I joined in August 2005 when I bought my first H3.

Now on number 5. Never had any problems, I just tend to trade too often.

Latest is a 2010 base model, 19k when I bought it and 36k now. Unless a pristine jewell comes along with low miles (and a V8), I'll hang on to this one....I think I've said that before.

Re: Original Owners ?
still check the website every now and then! been a member here since before i got my first hummer. Got the first H3 in December of 2006 it was a brand new 2007 base slate gray model, i traded it in, in July 2010 it had 67,000 miles on it at the time. for a brand new 2010 H3 Alpha in Canyon Metallic it currently has 35,000 miles on it and i have no intention on getting rid of it anytime soon! i love hummers too much and theres nothing out there that intrigues me as much as a hummer, id go for an h1 if i had the chance though!
