Safety has been considerably enhanced for the 2008 HUMMER H2

Though crash test ratings are unavailable for the 2008 HUMMER H2, reviews read by TheCarConnection.com were generally pleased with the safety features offered.

Numerous safety features come standard on the 2008 HUMMER H2. Automobile.com touts the traction control's "ability to grip at only one corner at a time" and the "electronic stability control with rollover mitigation." MyRide.com lists other standard safety features, including anti-lock brakes, driver and passenger airbags, and daytime running lights.

Cars.com is put at ease by the standard side curtain airbags "that deploy downward along the side windows for all three rows of seats" and automatically "deploy if a rollover is sensed." Edmunds notes that "front-row safety belt pre-tensioners" and "OnStar emergency communications system" complete the impressive mixture of standard safety features.

In terms of off-road safety, Automobile.com points drivers to the H2 HUMMER braking system that can "detect and make adjustments for off-road situations where loose surfaces would otherwise throw it off its game."

While all these safety features protect you in the event of an accident, the issue of visibility from the driver's seat of the 2008 HUMMER H2 is one that may result in accidents. As mentioned previously, Forbes Auto scolds the H2 HUMMER for minuscule windows that "significantly impair outward visibility."


The 2008 HUMMER H2 is a tank, and the plethora of safety features protects you like one.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
