End of the Line for Hummer H2
Truck Trend reviewer Frank Markus got behind the wheel of the 2008 version. He reports, "I can't recall any recent vehicle that I was happier to get out of than this one." He complains, "Its immense height bars it from many parking garages, and its Sherman-Tank girth renders it practically unusable in the tight confines of the mini-mall and grocery store parking lots in my neighborhood." He finds that the Hummer strains to "maintain normal highway speeds in Detroit," and adds, "I spent a weekend driving as if I had an egg on the throttle as we drove from store to store shopping for carpet, hoping to coax the average fuel economy up a tenth from 12.1 to 12.2 mpg. Never happened."
