Great crash scores and safety features make the 2008 HUMMER H3 a safe SUV.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) awarded the 2008 HUMMER H3 a score of five stars in crash tests for frontal driver protection and side impact passenger protection; the H3 earned four stars for frontal passengers protection and side impact driver protection. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) gave the HUMMER H3 a rating of "acceptable," though, in its more stringent tests.

According to Edmunds, "Antilock disc brakes, traction control, stability control, the OnStar communications system and full-length side curtain airbags" all come standard on the H3.

Several optional safety features are available for the HUMMER H3 2008, including a "back-up camera display screen, which hides within the rear view mirror housing, and automatically slides out into view when summoned," says Automobile.

When it comes to visibility in the HUMMER H3 2008, ConsumerGuide has much to complain about, noting, "Aft visibility is compromised by thick roof pillars and narrow glass openings." Likewise, the "hatch-mounted spare tire" on the HUMMER H3's exterior "blocks much of the rear window."

Conclusion

The 2008 HUMMER H3 has good crash protection, but visibility can be a problem.

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.
