      Good question, what else is there? The only comparable vehicles I can think of (remember a MANual is a must) are the JKU, X-terra and the FJ. Out of those the H3 is the cheapest and probably comes with the most options for the price.

      There is a good reason why the H3 is the cheapest of those as well.

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

      Just get an x-terra. They look great stock or modified. Lots of goodies out there just like Jeeps. Can carry alot in & out on the roof. Rear passengers get a great view while riding along, and gets a whole 5 more mpg than the H3

      Quite possibly. Heck, any of the Alphas.

      But then again, you'd have to sit on an unused H3T Alpha for a loooooooooong time before you could see your money come back to you.

      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.

      Like this. Why is an H3 driver an a**hole but a Wrangler driver is not?

      If you buy one, you MUST read this! Addresses all the weak points in the drivetrain. Also, all GM IFS are weak when put under stress.
