Review of the 2001 Honda Passport

  • There are some good midsize SUVs available. This is not one of them.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Rugged good looks, roomy rear seat, Honda dealers will give one away if you push hard enough.

  • Cons

    Lousy ride quality, suspension not capable of serious boulder-bashing, front seats offer all the support and comfort of a lawn chair.

  • What's New for 2001

    Honda adds a LATCH child seat-tether anchor system to the Passport, and all models get a new eight-speaker audio system.

It's an okay car

Vehicle: 2001 Honda Passport EX 2WD 4dr SUV (3.2L 6cyl 4A)

This car has made me so mad on numerous occasions. On 2 different times it randomly shut off while I was making a turn. I had to get the transmission fixed because it was leaking fluid. The suv doesn't use oil properly. This thing has just left a bad taste in my mouth and I'm so glad I just sold it, hopefully i get my reliable toyota 4runner for Christmas.

Well, mine is good

Vehicle: 2001 Honda Passport LX 2WD 4dr SUV (3.2L 6cyl 4A)

I've read all the reviews and I did have to replace the fuel sensor at about 35000 miles ($450). The ride is rough without a couple bags of sand in the rear. I've had virtually NO problems with this car. The Check Engine light started coming on. Removed the EGR Valve (in a very easy location) and cleaned out the carbon to good results. Would I buy it again? Probably not. My friend's Mazda Tribute was the same year, got better gas mileage, rode much better and had no problems at all.

I mean it, dont buy

Vehicle: 2001 Honda Passport LX 4WD 4dr SUV (3.2L 6cyl 4A)

I owned this SUV for almost four years, and for the first 3 years, it ran well, had no problems. Once I hit about 90K miles, the problems came. First, the oil leak around the front transfer casing (almost $1K), a replaced gasket ($500), then a blown computer chip which immobilized the SUV ($2000). Then, a second blown computer chip, (free, due to warranty of first chip), fuel tank sensor ($150) and last but not least, a short in the main engine wire housing which relays all the sensors to the computer (to diagnose the problem $500, to actually fix, $2.5 K). After diagnosing the wire housing problem, which took two dealerships 6 weeks and no loaner car, I washed my hands of this lemon.
