    Using a top down approach, provide a year and model#, and I can give you generic thumbs up or down based on a client database to which I have access.

    However, if its a 2006 H3.....find another vehicle.

    There are plenty of those hummers around in the country, with parts being somewhat available if we are talking about the regular stuff.

    Body parts are not common and most likely will be special order for your model in most cases.

    Repairs are not a problem in the DR for the vehicle, unless again we are talking some major issue that requires fabrication.

    The biggest issue with these models are related to theft. Removable parts are often targeted and it's a pain in the neck to keep up the evil hands away all times.
    One Dominican at a time please!

    Hummers in the DR are plentiful. There are more common than Land Rovers and those we have plenty here...

    The old style Hummers were gas guzzlers to say the least. Given the high price of gas in the DR, try to find one with a diesel engine. The new style Hummers are basically a reduced Hummer body on a GM heavy duty pickup truck chassis. Better gas mileage but still not great. New and used parts should be available for the newer models. Older model parts I expect are harder to get.

    Instead of giving you advice, I'm going to ask you a question: Why? What do you expect to be the gain in this endeavor? With the price of gasoline and diesel here, it's a risky venture at least.

    On top of the fact you are telling all the Dominicans, "look at me, I've got $$$"... (Target)

    Forgot to add. Even though old Hummer parts may be hard to find, one alternative is to check the roadside ditches during long trips. You should be able to find a few parts here and there. They were designed for military purposes because only the military can afford to keep fuel in them and maintain them.
