Inside the HUMMER H3The H3's driver's seat is a high perch, but very comfortable. The cloth seats are appropriately rugged, and seem like they'll be quite durable. Once you get inside the H3, it's a little ho-hum my passengers all commented with some dismay that "it's just an SUV." The military styling is all on the outside. The interior is clean and well-done, but fairly generic. If not for the flat hood, you could easily forget that you're in a Hummer.
There are a couple of missteps in the cabin. The rear view mirror is mounted so far out of reach that you have to lean forward to adjust the view when you sit back in driving position, the mirror is no longer in adjustment. And the parking brake is foot-operated, on the left side, which creates a real inconvenience with the manual transmission. If you want to leave your car in gear while parked, you have to turn off the ignition and wait for the engine to stop running completely before engaging the parking brake. A hand brake would work better.
The cargo compartment is lined with a rubbery non-skid surface, and there are several glove-box sized compartments along the side walls very useful. Also handy is the damper-aided rear gate swing you'd hate to have to stop that big gate with your legs.
