2006 Hummer H3 Owner Comments

problem #3

Apr 192007

H3 4WD 5-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 34,000 miles


I nearly hit another vehicle that pulled out in front of me today. The brake pedal is too close to the accelerator pedal on my 2006 Hummer H3. In an emergency situation, my shoe hangs up on the backside of the brake pedal and I have to turn my foot sideways to get it out from under the pedal. This is a very dangerous and annoying problem that I am afraid of. I can't fix this problem myself as the design is the cause of the problem.

H3 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 8,000 miles
The contact owns a 2006 Hummer H3. The contact feels the brake pedal is too close to the accelerator pedal, enhancing the possibility of accidental acceleration when attempting to stop the vehicle. The current and failure mileage were 8000.

H3 4WD 5-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 0 miles
In a test drive I find that the Hummer H3 has the brake pedal and the accelerator pedal too close, the shoes lips get stuck in the back of the brake pedal when I try to brake in emergency situation. This may cause future accidents. I contacted GM and they replay that there is no plan to fix this defect. I had a work boot on at the time of the test.
