I purchased a Hummer h3 in the beginning of 2006. After, about 3 months of having the vehicle the check engine light came on. So I panicked wuickly went back to another dealer closer to my area. I was told it was fixed but, 2 days later light back on. So i brought it back to the dealer. After they kept the truck for 2 months-2 months. I was told it was fixed all to get the truck back and it wasn't driving like a new vehicle or any vehicle more like a dump truck. so instead I decided to take it back to original dealer where I purchased. Service dept basically told me car was ruined from someone doing work that didn't know what they where doing to this type of vehicle. I have had countless problems with this truck to many to list and GMAC is full of it. I was a single/hard working mother at the time that don't ask for hand outs. I saved up for a while to purchase this truck for me and my daughter to have reliable transportation. Something would could be proud to say was ours all to be screwed. It hurts tremendously. I needed this car to last me at least 10 years after paying it off I doubt that will happen. Curretnly, the truck is back in the shop. I have had the truck 5 years I gaurantee it has been in the shop at least 6mo to a year of that time. Think carefully before you purchase this truck new or used. Don't do it? I could go on and on but I think you will get the just from what's wriiten.

It's not unusual for any vehicle to have the check light come on.
Your problem seems to be with the dealer that messed it up, rather than the poor truck.
I'm not particularly a fan of the H2s and H3s, but the reliability of the H3 is pretty average with the H2 a little less so; lots of niggly electrical problems.
It's also possible you have a , but that doesn't mean all H3s are lemons.
All manufacturers turn out a lemon occasionally, but that doesn't mean you should never buy another car.
#1270 of 1272 Long Term Reliability
Mar 31, 2012 (11:11 am)
Just wanted to go on the record that our '06 H3, bought in September 2005, has been the most trouble free vehicle we've had in 30 years...since our 'beloved '71 Toyota! The H3 has lived a hard life as my wife's daily commuter; short trip stop-n-go driving, 3 miles each way...hardly gets warmed up...rarely sees the freeway. Occasional trail excursions...where it performs superbly.
In 6 1/2 years and we've yet to spend $200 on repairs. the original AC Delco battery for about $150. I finally replaced the air filter last year for $25 a WIX). I've replaced a couple tail lamp bulbs too. That's it! And about half of our oil changes have been free with coupons from Hummer.
My biggest regret is not buying an H3T pickup in 09 before GM shut down the Hummer lines. Would have been a perfect vehicle for us.
The H3 forums don't get much traffic any more, so I hope this helps those here researching whether to buy that used H3.

Good for you. Sorry you missed out on the H3T.
Bought our '06 in September '06. While I won't question your lack of repairs and required maintenance, we are planning to keep ours as long as possible. We test drove an alpha soon after they came out but didn't bite. Life got in the way never got another one with $10k off and was waiting for the local dealer to find more H3's and ended up with the loaded wrangler.
GM should've spent a few more dollars and made a v8 possible from the beginning as well as strengthening known parts. Hoping a new trailblazer or equal vehicle will receive the benefits of lessons learned again by GM.
Funny, I replaced the same rear taillight bulb twice already.
