Love the back seats fold down, and have the tent that hooks to the rear great for camping

Review

I bought this vehicle almost 4 years now, and I gotta say it has been fantastic, no problems at all... I drive it to school and work all around the city. It is strong enough to take the continuous stop and go streets and comfortable enough for road trips. Amazing fuel mileage, as a college student I travel more than 30 miles a day and it is still up and running. This is my first car and my best so far. The only problem I had recently was the radiator, it broke but replaced it, and no other problems. Though make note that I took excellent care of the engine and the vehicle in general...


Best Features

Very comfortable. There is enough space inside. Gas Mileage. Overall performance.

1998 Honda Passport LX 4dr SUV


Review

I bought it used. Loved the feel of the strong V6. Not strong anymore, 56k to 152k. Gaskets and seals are now a problem. It is burning a lot of oil. The car really started to act up. No idle, stalling. Cleaned carbon out of the throttle body, replaced the MassAirSensor. Fuel gauge broke. Driver's window broke. Rear door key broke. I put the largest tires I could on it for a better ride. Feels good. AC is always perfect. Water pump, alternator, fan pulley all replaced. Installed electric fan with thermostatic switch. I really feel I've got all I can out of this car and it still runs OK. Auto auctions love these cars because they sell great in S. America.


Best Features

Driving over small brush in the parks. It's an SUV! Drives great. New, it had good power. Love the wind up on the power band in the standard tranny.


Worst Features

I'm 6'1'' and 200 lbs. The seats are not supported of my average weight, especially under the knees. I can't put the seat back far enough so I compensate by raking the seat backwards.

Review

I love my Passport. Having been a Toyota man for years, I have one problem. It doesn't get the fuel economy I hoped for. I know it is a V6 4WD, but I was hoping for better than 14 mpg. Otherwise, I absolutely love it. Note to prospective buyers, the Honda Passport was built by Isuzu. The Honda Pilot, which replaced the Passport is built by Honda. Just an FYI.


Best Features

Stereo, Rear DVD Player, comfortable ride, no road noise.


Worst Features

Needs better mpg.
