I've had this passport for over 2 years, and it has not disappointed me. I've done all the routine maintenance, and it has done everything I've asked it to. I drive offroad and a lot of highways, lately. While I'm not into really roughing it, I like to take rides into the desert in the winter. This is what I consider a real "ladylike" SUV (for me at least) - it looks nice, is easy to handle, I can run it through the mud, and then after a car wash, drive it to the office all week. Nice.
I like the looks. The 4WD (again, I'm not an offroad warrier, just casual), and the size of it. It fits lots of stuff in the back, without being overly large. It's not a boat like the larger SUVs. Gas mileage not bad, for an SUV.
Gas guage ... apparently it's a common problem for the gas guage to go out. Mine did. Other than that ... not too much to complain about.
