Vehicle

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

Review

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.

Favorite Features

4 wheel drive, hugged the road in the snow. Good power and acceleration.

Suggested Improvements

I don't know if it was poor assembly done in America (it was assembled in Indiana) or poor Japanese design or both, but I will never buy Honda ever again.
