I have owned my H2 for 3 yrs and it gets roughly the same gas mileage that my 2005 Chevy Tahoe gets (14 in town and 18 hwy). I don't know what the big deal is over the gas mileage (I have been researching the new Jeep Unlimited and it only gets marginally better gas mileage than the H2 [1 or 2 mpg] and for the style and luxury I'll keep my H2. No mechanical probs to speak of. Excellent ride - better than any other SUV. Turning radius is great. Bottom line is go drive one for yourself. Don't let others talk you out of it before you look at it. My husband thought he would hate it until he drove it. Needless to say, we took it home that day! Well worth the price for the SUV and gas.
We live in Iowa, we've had about 18 inches of snow so far this year and I don't have to worry about getting around, I can drive any where and feel 100% safe. The only regret I have so far is there is no complete third row seat offered. Otherwise am completely happy.
One day i was out with my family in my Escalade and i saw a silver hummer for sale and i was just hooked to it i went around the block and tried to forget about it but my wife kept telling me just to get a test drive if i like it i would buy it and i did and i got it for about $50,000 but its worth it i bought it with 35,000 miles 2005 it was brand new at the time and it only has 50,000 miles now and its the greatest suv i have ever bought !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
