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.

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.

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.

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

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.

Still have mine which was purchased fall of 2005 and it has 105k miles. I still really, really like it and would wish some GM marketing folks would still consider a GMC H-series for H3/H4. There is nothing between a big Tahoe and the new-minivan(traverse) these days.

Recently got rid of mine at the end of Sept. Had it since Oct. 05 right after we got back from our honeymoon. It had 82k miles, but just seemed to be one issue after another in the past year or so.

Figured with the prices where they were, having just about every seal/gasket go in the past year or 2, and the fact that I needed to replace the tires...it was a good time to sell. Though I would say that I had the factory offroad tires, and 82k miles on them (would def. have bought the same tires if I was keeping it).

Was really sad to clean it out for the last time, but knew it was for the best.

Never forget the times I went through and over feet of snow.

Wish you all luck!

Holy sh"" fstop! I hate to see all the veterans leaving the fold! Sorry to see one of the most knowledgeable if not the most, H3 veteran leave. Thanks for all the insights and explanations during the H3's early years. I'm still pis**d at GM for what they did to the Hummer brand. Happy trails!

Haven't been here in awhile but saw this thread on top, still running my June '05 Boulder Gray 05/2005 build at about 189,000 KM so far. Overall has been a rock solid vehicle with a few things: recently replaced the thermostat, before that, on second set of tires, been through a couple of sets of brakes (always thought they were a bit undersized for the job since day one) and the only major issue was the infamous cracked cylinder head that through an engine code about 10 minutes after the warranty expired - service dept cut a deal on that though...

Oh, and on fourth windshield

Although I bout my 2006 when it was about 2 years old, I still feel like the original owner because it was part of their GM executive vehicle fleet... SOOOO... since it did not leave "gm" until I bought it, I am kind of the first owner! LOL.....

If GM kept a vehicle for two years in the fleet, it was not part of the executive fleet that was driven by executives; it was part of service engineering and was held for test purposes. Heck, I might have managed the techs who tore it apart.

I still have mine, but stored in the storage unit. I haven't driven it since September 2014.

Engine light problem, and need a smog test. I just don't have a lot of time and money to fix it. Maybe next year. :-(
