I think it was Monica_E320 that betrayed us with a Hummer and now you're going to betray us with an Acura???

Don't get the Hummer. The TSX is the better bet. Heck, get the TL if you can!

I agree with checking out the Acura SUV's, and also the diesel Bluetec Mercedes ML. The H3 is for posers. And it's conceited, not conceded.

if you can apply that same attitude and thought process towards your boyfriend(s) and conversely, the way you go about your relationships towards your car ownership, your life will would be more manageable -- a succession of short but monogamous relationships and a three-car garage with a Mercedes, an Acura, and a Hummer parked in it.

more sensible to keep Benz & forget Hummers

A target rich opportunity for the savvy used car buyer if this one is in otherwise good condition.

It is hard for me to believe people get rid of good cars because of normal wear issues like brake pads, tires, and batteries.

And I've mentioned this awhile back too, but haven't been set yet on what I want car I want to get.


And I've been looking at the H3 Hummers Ok so I'd look like Barbie driving a Hummer, but I think it would be cute. Anyway, does anyone know anything about the Hummers, good or bad?? I want an SUV, but that's really the only style I like. And I can get an employee discount if I buy a GM, through my boss's family.

So...I need some advice again, but this time on cars

The Hummer H3 is only worth it if would put it to is maximum intended use.

Willl you regulary load it to the gills with people and take off where there are no roads, or really bad ones?

If not, pass. A total waste of money, horrible gas mileage, not very well built, and poor handling.

Buying a crap car with an employee discount is in the end still buying a crap car.

If you think you would like to look like "Barbie driving a Hummer" I suppose perhaps you probably would, but also anyone who did that would also look kind of silly or like an airhead, too.

I never understood people who bought cars because of what they thought they would look like driving it. Especially if they paid a high price or car payments with interest on the loan.

Would you buy it to impress people? An Elmore Leonard character said in a novel, "$hit, if I want to impress someone I would just stick the barrel of a nickel plated .45 down their throat and ear back the hammer"

However, with one of those you would do very well in the crash when you hit another car, assuming the Hummer did not roll over, which it easily could.

Acura TSX worth another look if you like front wheel drive
