2007 Hummer H3 Owner Comments

Yesterday mavis was visiting our daughter (brenda) in killeen. Brenda owns one of those fancy H3 burnt orange Hummer with all the doodads. It looks like it just rolled off of fort hood ready for warfare. If fact it attacked my lovely demure wife with no provocation whatsoever. Now realize I was dutifully working at my job while mavis was out but she swears by the story and at me. Mavis and brenda jump in the Hummer to go see the doctor in temple which is about a 20 mile trip. Brenda was driving. Shortly after leaving the house mavis starts squirming around in the seat complaining about how hot the seat was and trying to figure out how to turn the darn seat heater off. She thought maybe she was having hot flashes. Brenda pulls off the side of the highway and runs around the Hummer, hoping no one runs over them, to turn off the seat heater. She turns the heater off or so she thought. She heads down the road again when mavis hollers that her bottom was burning off. She pulls off the road again and they finally get the darn thing turned off. The seat and mavis" bottom start to cool down. After visiting the family doctor they returned to killeen and mavis jumped in our car to head for home. The 2 hour trip from killeen to red oak took nearly 6 hours. Some knot head damaged a bridge on I35 shutting down the highway. I was watching tv when mavis got home and she immediately runs in the bedroom pulling down her slacks and she shows me 1st and 2nd degree burns on the back of her thighs and her bottom. The burns look very painful and very ugly. I took pictures. Some pictures are of the burns. Today brenda called GM to inform them of the attack. They think a heat sensor must have failed but we?ll know more after they take a look at it. It"S amazing that neither the seat nor her clothing showed any heat damage. Mavis is doing well but is a bit tender. She is going to be sore for a few days.
