I don’t blame you. Remember that article I posted about how the H2s were voted to have the best resale value by the Canadian International Autoshow. Anyhow, now that you’ve set your mind into getting your own, how do you buy one? Do you check it out much like a regular car? Well, there are some differences in how you do it. But before you do go. You may want to read up on this great article by Ebay: “How to buy a Hummer H2″
Well, if you are reading this guide then it is pretty clear that you are not the average individual who thinks that a vehicle is simply to take you from Point A to Point B. The Hummer H2 is definitely not for the staid person who goes through life without shaking things up. The Hummer H2 will get a second (maybe even third look) on the street. The Hummer look for the uninitiated is the impressed yet disappointed “Bummer, it’s not me” expression that washes over those who see “lucky you” in your Hummer H2. It could also be the “is that Hummer H2 going to take up both of those parking spaces” look that is more annoyance than admiration. Either way, trust me, you’ll get a second look.
Okay, if you’ve read the first paragraph and decide that you are still a Hummer person then you are in luck. I am going to walk you through how to buy a Hummer H2 as well as throw in some interesting Hummer facts and history so that you’ll be able to spit out some pithy tidbits to all the people who are going to engage you in conversation when they learn that you own an Hummer H2. This guide is not intended to convince you to buy a Hummer but rather help you decide on and buy the right Hummer H2 model for you. So, I am not going to waste space telling you how many miles per gallon (11 to 12 mpg – couldn’t help it) your Hummer H2 gets you. If frequent trips to the gas station don’t bother you, keep on reading.
Once you have decided that you want an Hummer H2, you’ve basically got three choices. The Hummer H2 comes in the Base model or either the Adventure or Lux Package if you are interested in upgrading.
Once you’ve got your new-to-you H2, then make sure you customize it with Pirate Mfg H2 parts. We carry an extensive parts list of billet parts to make your H2 look even better.
Apparently the Hummer H2 was recently named in Canada as the vehicle with the most favorable, or in other words “Best” resale value. Hummer was awarded this position during a ceremony at the Canadian International Autoshow.
