CARFAX Risk Factor Statistics for Hummer (US IMPORTS)
Since 1992, there have been at least 8,757 Hummer vehicles that were exported to Europe.
More than 50% of the cars that were exported from the U.S. to Europe have a history of recall history. A car with a recall status is one that needs to be reviewed by the original manufacturer for improvements or additions to ensure safety and functionality of the vehicle. In case of many U.S. cars, these cars are not returned to the manufacturer for improvements, but rather exported to Europe, where new used car buyers often don’t know about the outstanding recall status. Since 1992, there have been at least 4,575 Hummer cars with such a hidden history.
Mileage inconsistency is another risk factor that should be taken into consideration by used car buyers. Mileage inconsistency refers to cars which have been confirmed to have inconsistent mileage readings, which is mostly an indicator of mileage fraud (rollback) or clerical errors. Buying a car with an inaccurate mileage reading usually leads to overpaying and in some cases to paying for a car that needs many more services and reparations than you would expect. 22 Hummer cars that were exported from the U.S. carry such a history.

Another risk factor for used car buyers is flood history. In many states in the United States, there is an actual risk that the car has been flooded due to excessive weather conditions or natural causes. When this happens, the car is immediately affected in functionality and value. Although the car may be repaired, this doesn’t always solve the problem. What happens is that these cars are often exported and sold to Europe where the history stays uncovered. Used car buyers don’t know and many times overpay. Check what you buy with a CARFAX Report.
