Default looking to upgradefrom h2 and have a question

i have a 2003 h2, but i am thinking of making the big step.
i know that the early model h1 had some issues (leaks and cracked blocks, etc...), but what are the issue with the later models (2001+?)

what should i look out for when it comes to buying one and hopefully it being a reliable transport along with a go any where vehicle

Not any real issues with the 2001 and up but if $'s are not an issue I would focus my search on an '04 or '06. Past maintenance history is the key! The H1 is not an inexpensive vehicle if you plan on making it a daily driver. One of the best H1 forums is so go there and register and ask the same question. Very knowledgable owners and will help in finding the right truck.

I don't believe many people do enough research before they ask this question, H1 is a compromise vehicle, you get the abilities, but it costs you tons of money to keep them running, and unless you get an 04/06, highway speeds mean about 70 depending on configuration.
You either have to have a lot of money, or either be very mechanically inclined and have a lot of time and again, money.
