The 2009 HUMMER H3T has not yet been crash tested by the governing bodies in the U.S., but various reviews and road tests read by TheCarConnection.com show that the HUMMER H3T is one safe, capable truck, especially off-road.

The 2009 HUMMER H3T incorporates an impressive list of safety features, most of which are aimed at buyers who will be taking their HUMMER H3T off the beaten path. Edmunds writes that "the OnStar communications system and full-length side curtain airbags" are standard on the HUMMER H3T, and OnStar should prove particularly helpful in the event of a major problem while off-roading. In addition to that, Autoblog says that "Hill Start Assist, Traction Control, [and] Electronic Stability Control" are also included on all 2009 HUMMER H3T pickups. During their road test, Car and Driver reviewers certainly appreciated the "hill-start assist, which holds the brakes for two seconds after pedal release," and they claim that "even off-road novices can appreciate how handy" the feature is.

While the 2009 HUMMER H3T offers enough off-road safety features to keep even the most demanding drivers satisfied, it is sorely lacking in one critical safety area—visibility. Reviews read by TheCarConnection.com unanimously panned what Edmunds describes as "lousy outward visibility." Fortunately, Autoblog notes that a "rear-vision camera is a $550 option" that will definitely improve visibility to the rear of the 2009 HUMMER H3T.

Conclusion

The electronic safety systems on the 2009 HUMMER H3T are nice, but would it hurt to throw in some bigger windows?

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.
