Hummer, owned by the Chinese!? Did you ever think you'd see the day that happened?
Sad... very sad, but not totally unexpected
The trends toward the Chinese are difficult to ignore, and there is more to come
Woof, Woof - Dawg
Yep, I have worked for 2 companies what are in the process of setting up shop over there.
People I have talked to from both companies say it is horrible over there. Safety is a low priority.
Teh powers to be over in china are living large.
As are the executives in this country.
The company i work for has not shown a profit yet but the uppers seem to be making 600k and up every year?
How far will we go to just destroy this country
Sadly, we are committed to doing whatever it takes.

Hummer was the worst of trends for the American industry. When it should have gone to fuel efficient it went to Hummer.
Don't let the door hit you on the way out, Hummer.

so do the Chinese supply our military humvees now? lol
yep, and they are so nice to include multiple anti-theft solutions, such as continuous GPS-tracking and remotely-controlled engine-shutoff functions
China really must have money to burn. Either that or they're insane or drunk.
First MG/Rover and now Hummer? For the life of me I can't think of anything worse to buy!
Still, it's their money and they are welcome to spend it how they see fit. I for one welcome our New Overlords.
Why won't it just die?
I can't imagine why anyone would waste their money on a crappy brand like Hummer.
I can't believe anyone actually wants to buy a Hummer anymore. I've never liked them.
No. The military version is and always has been made by AM General.
What is so wrong with having a brand compete against Jeep?
I have several friends who own H2s and I never fail to be amazed at the greif they get from total strangers. We were gassing up on the way to hunting camp and this clown in a Prius was practically screaming at us! The H2 is a great off road vehicle, but kind of a bear around town. They are built on the Yukon/Tahoe platform and are mechanically the same. However, Yukon/Tahoe owners don't catch the crap Hummers do. I guess the Hummer is the target of choice for the enviro-nazis.
At least around where I live, Hummer's are seen as more of a status symbol then anything else, never to be used off road. If you want off road, buy a Jeep. It's ridiculous people think this way, but that's how it is and I see it as a huge waste to drive a vehicle like that if it's not going to be used for what it was built for.
Jeez, then don't blame the brand for people buying Hummers for not using them for what they were designed for. It is just like the people who call for the death of truck and SUV's punishing people like our family who need a vehicle like a Suburban for towing and hauling stuff because the majority bought them for image and status.
And Jeep eh. Daimler really screwed Chrysler up. The Compass and Patriot are complete jokes and hurts Jeep's image. Cherokee should have never been killed. Look what they are trying to do now with the Liberty and Commander trying to get Cherokee buyers to come back..... The only real Jeep remaining is the Wrangler and GC.
Haha...reminds me of this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dimg2n2Azwg
I never liked the GM-made Hummers anyway, what's the point? If you want a hummer get a real one...they're badass.
Believe it or not, I actually saw a yellow Hummer swanning around on a city street in Tbilisi yesterday. It was so hideous it was actually breath-takingly indescribably horrible, a monument to execrable taste.
wow. hopefully they'll have a redesign soon. the current hummer needs to be redone
I like Hummers. The H3 gets 13-14 MPG in the city and 16-18 highway, so not really that bad. Many do worse.
I don't see why everybody hates them.
I hope the Chinese involvement turns out better for them than it did for Rover.
Great. Now when you drive a Hummer, you'll feel like you never did in a half hour.
