You'll either love it or you'll hate it. It's not the most quiet, most plush, smoothest or fastest vehicle out there, but it wasn't meant to be. It's not the wisest choice for a daily driver, but few buy a Hummer for that purpose.

Truth is, the Hummer is a symbol more than anything. It's all about image and attitude. It's purchased more for looks and brawn than practicality and purpose. So, if you're looking for another way to get noticed…the Hummer could be just what you've been waiting for.

Realistically, if you can afford one (initially, as well as repeated maintenance), and you plan to spend most of your time in it off-road, then by all means… buy one! The Hummer will likely be your best trailblazing machine ever. It's a great off-road vehicle... if that's what you're looking for.
