Pointless and Embarrassing

04.03.17 - Hummer H2

While the original Hummer H1 was an awesome machine with tons of power and the military build to take on nearly everything in its path, the follow up to this big beast wasn’t what you would have hoped. Many may love their Hummer H2 because of the look it gives them on the road, but for the most part, this is an embarrassing and ridiculous vehicle to drive, as Doug DeMuro describes in this video.
