Review of the 2002 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

    Poor 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 2002

    There are no significant changes to the Passport this year.

Starting problem

by on
Vehicle: 2002 Honda Passport EX 4WD 4dr SUV w/Luxury Package (3.2L 6cyl 4A)

I have had my passport for 6 yrs. I love it. I have had no problems except for now. I have 92,000 mi. on it & ow there is a starting problem. The car starts then imediatley stalls, the 2nd. time I start it , it starts right up. No mechanic can figure it out & no ingine lite is on. I was told it could be an ignition switch or a fuel pump relay. Has anyone had this problem? It doesn't matter if it is cold or hot . I still get 18 to 21 mpg.

Never ever buy another one.

This SUV has been nothing but a nightmare. It stays in the shop more than it does in my driveway and when it's in my driveway most times it's waiting on repairs. I would never buy another one. Never, transmission bad, engine bad, sway bars bad. I believe this car must have been a total loss and refixed. Nothing but a headache that sucks my pockets dry.

I liked my car when purchased & thought this is a good car; turned out to be a bummer.After only 4 months the transmission is not shifting properly & the closed system makes it impossible to check fluid level. What a bummer.

The engine oil consumption is a problem... every 2 & half months add or get complete oil change. THE BRAKES ARE A PAIN TO FIX & COSTLY ALONG WITH THE DRIVE BELT. THE CD PLAYER EATS CDs... the fuse system is in a aggravatingly bad location to work on. The spare/spare crane are a pain in the neck.

2002 4wd honda passport

by on
Vehicle: 2002 Honda Passport EX 4WD 4dr SUV (3.2L 6cyl 4A)

Except for substantial wind noise, and some body integrity issues, this has been a fairly reliable vehicle. I just got new tires and it has improved greatly. It runs great in the 4WD mode for heavy snow. The front seat seems to "fade" and needs adjusting fairly regularly. Gas mileage is average for a midsized SUV. Before I got new tires, it seemed to have several rattles, but this is improved with new rubber. I would recommend replacing the tires before you need to. There is plenty of room in the back seat, and lots of storage when rear seats are folded down. I intend to keep it til it dies, much to the chagrin of the mechanics. They don't like to work on them.

I have owned this for

Actually the passport is a 96 and its been a great vehicle and it has never failed me. I bought my wife the 2002 Oddy and she drives the Passport more. I had to put a few parts in the AC but it was st...


Interestingly the cars in the lot were parked so that a new CRV 2002 was between a 2001 CRV and a Passport. No kidding, from the back the 2002 looks more like a cousin to the Passport instead of the ...
