They made them because people wanted them. It just so happens that times have changed. Imagine that.

GM doesn't even build the military hummers if I'm not mistaken.

my parents have an H3 and we love it. I'd hate to see GM stop producing them, and I see them everywhere I dont see how it would help that much. And now the new H3 has a V8 which makes it that much sweeter.
