Suspension & Steering, October 14, 2005

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Some vehicles have a power steering hose that was not made to specification and may rupture under extreme steering conditions. If this were to happen, power steering assist would be lost and steering effort would increase. On vehicles equipped with hydro-boost brakes, braking effort would also increase. If power steering fluid were to spray on hot engine parts, an engine compartment fire could also occur. Dealers will inspect the power steering hose(s) for the two suspect date codes and replace them if needed. The recall began October 14, 2005. The GM recall number is 05086.

2006 Hummer H2 Reviews

We bought this H2 new in the fall of 2005. It now has over 105,000 miles on it and continues to perform extremely well. The only problems we have had is that we've gone through a couple batteries and a minor suspension problem in the rear. This is a great vehicle that has been used for a variety of "hauling" applications and it continues to perform beautifully. The only down side is that the vehicle only gets 11 mpg (whether towing a load or not) and I would not recommend it to a driver 6' tall or greater that wants to be able to stretch their legs out (the seats just don't go back that far).
