The ride is hard but that's because it's based on a truck platform from Isuzu, not a civic from Honda. If you want a decent cheap SUV get one of these, but get it checked out first. If you want a cushy ride, get a CR-V or RAV-4 or some other CarUV. If you want great gas mileage, buy a civic hybrid.
Exterior design still looks good after so many years. No major blind spots to contend with, unlike FJ Cruiser
Honda have always needed to get real horns. Mine sounds like someone is using a goose for a set of bagpipes. It's embarrassing.
I had very limited time to but a car and the Honda Passport seemed like the best choice at the dealership. I drove it for a year (it had 56K miles when I bought it) without a single problem. Then I started having trouble with it.In the past year, I have had the battery (which was new when I bought it), the alternator, the starter replaced. I have put two transmissions in it, both within a three week period, Today it is at the shop because it almost exploded last night and died on the side of the road. Thank goodness I still have 1000 miles left on the warranty, that gives me enough time to find someone to buy it!
For the last 11 months my vehicle
rattles and then dies when you
accelerate at red lights and stop
signs. I have taken it in to a honda
dealership but they cant find the
problem. They thought it could be the
fuel filter and pump and I had that
changed and it didnt help.
Looks of the Exterior and the Interior
is very comfortable.
