1997 Honda Passport EX 4dr SUV 4WD


Review

Performance is good. Roomy interior - especially passenger seating. Poor gas mileage 15-20 mpg's. Minor issues - broken passenger window mechanism, broken driver windshield wiper mechanism.


Best Features

stereo, 4WD, size of cargo space when seats are folded down


Worst Features

somewhat of a loud interior. the wheel on the back is nice since it frees up more cargo room, but can become a nuisance when getting in the back.

Review

I am constantly doing engine and
drivetrain repairs on this vehicle. The
engine has a constant tick from the
valves. At higher speeds there is a lot
of wind noise coming from the doors. I
would not recommend owning this vehicle.


Best Features

It drives well in bad weather, plenty of leg room (front and back), and it is easy to drive. Decent horse power.


Worst Features

Better cushioned seats, more (and better placed) cup holders. A small V8 engine would be better suited to get more torque.

Review

My husband and I wanted a reliable,
dependable and safe vehicle. We got a
safe vehicle. We bought the car with
about 30000 miles in Jan99. Almost
immediately we had problems. Within
the first year we had a new alternator,
starter, and battery. Since than we
have had a new transmission and
currently our vehicle is in the
dealership waiting for a new cataylic
converter (two weeks)- THANK GOD WE
BOUGHT THE EXTENDED WARRANTY! I had a
Honda Civic prior to this Passport and
loved the car!!! No problems. We also
bought a used Grand Prix (94), 6 months
prior to the Passport, it has 97,000
miles and we have had to replace 3 fuel
injectors and that's it?!?!?!


Best Features

Good pick up-drives smooth. Roomy backseat and front seat!


Worst Features

Wow where to begin! Build a dependable and reliable vehicle.

Review

Here are the problems that I
encountered: power windows regulators
kept going out & noisey lifters during
colder seasons. I did research and
found that the noisey lifters are a
common theme with these
vehicles, but no recall existed. I
decided to get rid of the
vehicle since different noises started
to occur sporadically from the engine
and no shop could diagnose the
problem. I was concerned about
reliability and longevity. Overall,
if the vehicle didn't
have the engine problems, I would
still own this vehicle. Other than
build quality issues, I loved the
vehicle styling.


Best Features

Interior setup and exterior styling.


Worst Features

Build quality and reliability improvements.
