Internet searching turned this up today, any truth to it?
Hummer H3s Now Standard with Child Safety Locks
In addition to the interior door panel upgrade, Hummer has also included rear door child safety locks in every H3 produced after February 1st. Great news for parents looking for the Hummer H3 to be a family vehicle, and may have been looked at other vehicles instead of the H3 because of child safety locks. Arenít these pretty much standard on all SUVs? I guess for Hummer itís better late than never! The two changes are part of Hummerís mid-year enhancement for the H3.

Curious, saw your lease posts. A little upside down on our crd when washed it through blue beauty. Been told by others and insiders about parts eating dcx products recently. Never leased but with all this plastic and electronics maybe should've considered that. Maybe my old statement about the cheapest vehicle and put it out on the curb for trash pick day when it falters may....
Don't know about leasing but got as far as "38 months remaining" and that inspired this. Are you past your basic warranty? Wouldn't a good dcx extended warranty(bear with me - some are not worth the paper they're written on due to 'can't duplicate') be a better idea?
Thanks for the updates, but there are sites where builders and mechanics of h3's, and a photographer post and the rumors persist about h3's. Is the volvo out? Why h3? Is the residual still being kept high?
6k miles plus, one oil change, clipped off top of the antenna to clear garage. Better_half just drives it.

I am past my basic warranty - and I've had extended warranties in the past that didn't cover jack, so I didn't get it with the Chrysler. The residuals are higher than every other SUV I've priced so far. Plus, I flat out love the vehicle. The Volvo is my better half's......that was my Xmas present to her.
The child safety locks and window controls were both confirmed last night by my dealership. All H3's after Feb 1 will have these modifications. They'll hit the lots in about 8 weeks, but I can order one and have it a little sooner.

Thanks and I apologize for not reading everything before posting. "I flat out love the vehicle" - I am starting to feel that way now after another road trip yesterday and close to 7k miles now(even with the 3.5). Better_half has a nice daily driver. I guess you don't care about the "new engine?" and are satisfied with the 3.7 motor.

Is anyone having problems with their #5 cylinder problems with their 06 Hummer? I have had my Hummer H3 in the shop 4 times during my 8 months of ownership with this problem. The dealer has replaced fuel injector and spark plug but nothing has changed. It started when the engine light came on and the rpms would fluctuate between 2500 and 3100 rpm at 75 mph while engine was warming up. Even when the light would go off and I let the dealer know, they said they couldn't figure out what is going on. On top of this, I have been averaging about 12 miles a gallon after this problem occurred. If anyone has any information that would help, I would appreciate it. Thanks.

Have the dealer check the cylinder head. I just had the check engine light go on and took it to a hummer dealer. Onstar said i had a misfire in #5. They have had my car for two weeks there is a problem with alot of h3's. the parts are on backorder. they are basically putting a new header on, they are really cool about the whole process and gave me a brand new suburban to use. hope this helps.

Brian, Thank you for your comments. I have had my H3 in the shop for a total of 3 weeks and they can't figure it out. I spoke with a service tech about the head issue and he said it couldn't be it. I have reason to think he may not think this is major of an issue as I think it is. I am going to be taking my truck to another dealer and am going to have them check this out. If this has been a problem, why no recall on this or consumer warning? I have read several messages on here about people having similar issues. Looks like I have a good lead on this one now. Hopefully I can get the help you have gotten. Thanks!

Check out the discussion under Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon, "Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon Engine Problems". These vehicles have the same engine as the H3. Good luck.

I am bored and lazy. I have not; contacted engineers, researched the library or the internet, contacted vortec engineering, and etc.
Spent some time at vortec engineering netsite, remember (maybe at edmunds) how the 2.4 gm engine was pushed beyond limits thought possible by me.
Can a small boost vortec centifugal supercharger (vcs) be added to the 3.5 I5? Can a small vcs be driven from an electric motor? Is that motor necessary - i.e. is the loss from the crank enough to warrant the the electrical circuits to time the motor speed vs drag or drain to the alternator? Can the guts of the 3.5 handle any of this? Can this be coupled to an enlarged exhaust system to make a "wow" what was that experience?
