Hey guys.. Im interested in buying a h3 I really like them but I'm concerned with the fact there's no new hummers being produced. Will it be hard to obtain parts in the next 5 years? Also how do you believe the resale will be I most likely will keep it forever lol but will anyone want them or do you think think these will become an instant classic? Mostly concerned about obtaining parts let me know what you've heard or know about this thanks!

By law every auto manufacture has to make parts for a ten years after a model year
Always hard to tell if a any vehicle will end up being a classic. Time is the only true answer
I'm very happy with mine and it has been almost fault free. And it does everything I ask of it off road
and is easy to drive down the highway.
I believe manufactuers are required to make parts for discountinued vehicles for 10 years after the date which they ceased manufacturing so you should be good. OEM accessories may not be readily available.
I believe there is also a ratio of extra parts to total vehicles built that is required by all manufacturers. so there should be extras around after that. I still find occasional nos oem gm parts for my 65 nova 40+ yrs later.
That is just it, the ratio on an already low volume production vehicle is really low. People have to wait on parts now, In another 5 or 10 years hummer specific things will be ridiculously difficult to find.
Do you trust GM to fulfill that obligation? The law has not seem to scare them in the past. You know the guys that dropped the H3.
A lot of parts are generic GM and some have been picked up by the same guys that make them for other GM products. H3 specific parts are already out of stock in some regional distributor areas. Tie rods have been picked up by NAPA who owns two places that make them.
The H3 body parts might be what will be hard to find at some point and trim pieces.
Switches specific to the H3 are also selling out.
If they keep making the Colorado/Canyon some of those parts will exchange and might be a good thing.
However that wonderful steering rack made by Mondo Corporation in South Korea and some parts from Mexico may go away.
There were not many OEM accessories.
