The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.6
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
Unless you love the style or genuinely value the off-road capabilities of the 2008 HUMMER H3, it doesn’t realistically make a very good everyday SUV. For active people who need to tow or haul a lot of gear or go off-road, the 2008 Nissan Xterra is one of the best—and best-looking—choices.
