1997 Honda Passport LX 4dr SUV


We bought a 97'passport used for our teenage daughter's as her first car. Four months later, with her 2 best friends along for the ride, she hydroplaned and and sheared off a tree. The tree hit the front of the car direct center and came to rest on the roof! The air bags deployed as they were designed to do. The only injuries were minor burns from the drivers side airbag. As the police officer said "the girls were very lucky" "usually it is the tree that lives and the people don't" I credit the passport's amazing structural design. Yes the car was total loss by the insurance standard but it was quite a sight to see the tree on top of the roof and the roof not even dented.

Best Features

the ease of putting seats down to arrange for storage and cargo

Worst Features

cup holders. remove the spare tire from the back as it makes it more difficult to open rear door and harder to see out back window.
