5 gallons per mile

I can't believe I am asking this but what can you tell me about the H3. I will probably sell my Jeep this summer and get something with a little more luxury and space and it seems like used H3's are priced about the same as Wrangler unlimiteds. Not sure I would get one but if I ever did it would have to be a stick and I would probably try to get leather. How well do they hold up? I know the I-5 is under powered but does it get decent miles? Any cool features?
It's ridiculous and made for people who would do better to spend their compensation money on Enzyte.
The I5 is anemic at best. If you can swing the V8, go for it. I had a roomate in college with a H2, they're fun. Feel like tonka toys.

.... or get a trailer.
.... or if you need something for professional work, just about everything on the market is better suited than an H3.
I did some research on them last year when I was shopping. There were no major "red flags". I think there have been a few with off-roading issues (can't recall suspension?). But you're right, with the depreciation, it does make an interesting option against the Wrangler and FJs.
some are also known to need entire heads replaced, and i believe there is a bulletin about that some where out there. let me go dig it out
EDIT: lied about the bulletin, but i do see some that come in that are running rough and they require a new head.

And they were sold with a 5 speed manual (which always helps truck fuel economy).

I'm not sure about all the hate in here. It's a handsome, good-sized SUV and should be reasonably reliable if you're not taking it off-road. The I5 isn't fast, but then again, neither is any of it's competition and these aren't fast SUVs like Cayennes. The mileage is basically the same as its competitors as well. Cheap-looking (read: durable) interiors are the norm in this segment, so that should be no surprise.
If the size of the H3 suits you best, I can't see any reason not to consider one.
