I always liked the look of the Honda
Passport although several of my friends
jokingly called it the Assport. I have
since bought and would have had a huge
problem with a BLOWN catalytic
converter, but as luck would rarely
have it my warranty covered the $1700+
expense. I sorta glad it did
happen because of a couple
things that I had been putting
off which were covered under another
extended warranty I had purchased --
fuel gauge and horrible brakes. The
brakes are still crappy; I
believe the SUV burns a quart of
oil every 3000 miles. Rides like an
Amish wagon. Highway noise is like
driving a wiffleball down the highway.
looks and mine -- other than the
warranty work -- has been dependable.
Re-think the noise factors, Re-think
whether people actually use this for
off-roading and improve suspension.
