It's really, finally over. Yesterday, the very last HUMMER H3 rolled off the production line in Shreveport, Louisiana, part of a special order for rental-car company Avis.

After a lengthy and ultimately failed effort to sell the quintessential maker of sport-utility vehicles to a Chinese company, General Motors is winding down the brand. In July, 200 of the 900 employees at Shreveport are expected to lose their jobs.

Last month, General Motors put its remaining HUMMER models on sale, offering up to $6,000 off on certain models. Its "Last Chance To Buy a HUMMER" campaign included zero-percent financing for 72 months, or $4,000 to $6,000 off various H2 and H3 models.

But earlier this month, the HUMMER's last days were punctuated by a recall by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The clips that hold the H3's hood louver in place can break over time, meaning the hood louver can "detach from the vehicle."

Virtually all H3 models--more than 162,000, according to the NHTSA--need to be inspected as part of the recall.

  2. Mariagrafs: "200 of the 900 employees at Shreveport are expected to lose their jobs."
    reading comprehension FAIL on your part.
    And it's 'losing' not 'loosing'.

  3. Maybe stupid American men have finally learned that a big Hummer will never compensate for a small pecker.

  4. Really, the malinvestment caused by belief in the credit bubble, a poster child for the death of Keynesian economics and government intervention in the economy.

  6. They might consider revising that slogan to "Last chance to prove you're a total jackass."
