2001 Honda Passport LX 4WD 4dr SUV (3.2L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I had resisted buying an SUV, but the
Subaru dealer I went to for an Outback
was so obnoxious, I went to Honda. They
were clearing out the 2001's and I got
a great price. The dealer however, did
not tell me that I was not getting a
Honda, but an Izuzu - with Honda
badges.
I have hated this SUV since the first
long distance (250 miles) trip. It's
uncomfortable, noisy and thirsty. Also,
every time we drive on an expressway
for more than 30 miles or so, when we
stop the thing sounds liek a diesel -
but the dealer has "never heard of a
problem like that" and "can't find
anything wrong".
To be honest, I don't know why we still
own it.

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


Review

WE LIVE IN A RURAL AREA AND PART OF OUR
DRIVING IS OVER ROADS THAT ARE NOT KEPT
VERY WELL. THIS VEHICLE HAS PASSED
OVER THESE ROADS AT LEAST 6 DAYS A WEEK
FOR THE PAST 3 YEARS AND STILL DOES NOT
HAVE A SHAKE OR RATTLE. WE HAVE NEVER
OWNED A CAR WE COULD SAY THAT ABOUT,
NOT EVEN MY HUSBAND'S 4-WHEEL DRIVE
PICKUP. I FEEL VERY CONFIDENT THIS
WILL BE A CAR WE WILL BE ABLE TO DRIVE
ALONG TIME AFTER'S IT'S PAID FOR IF WE
CHOOSE TO.


Best Features

YOU CAN DEPEND ON IT TO ALWAYS START. THE ONLY THING WE HAVE HAD TO DO IS THE REGULAR ROUTINE UPKEEP AS SUGGESTED IN THE MANUEL.


Worst Features

JUST MAKE THE SEATS MORE COMFORTABLE.

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


Review

Great mid-sized SUV. Bigger than the
Liberty, more cargo space than the
Mercedes or BMW. This is a REAL truck,
built on a truck frame by a truck
manufacturer (Isuzu), so if you're
looking for a feather soft ride, pass
this one by and be prepared to spend
some more cash too. We didn't want to
go the mini-van route and we wanted
4WD, so this is what we chose. If
you're a mid-sized pick-up truck guy or
gal and find yourself in the "family
way", don't want to give up the feel of
your 4wd pickup, but don't have the
cash for a new crew-cab - this is the
way to go.


Best Features

Good Looks, good manoverability, excellent back seat room, dependable, drives through deep snow, mud, whaterever is thrown at it.


Worst Features

This is no longer being licensed by Honda, but if I were to improve anything, I'd try to smooth out the ride a bit. Highway mileage is okay, but it burns alot around town.

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


Review

After moving to Denver CO we purchased
our first SUV. With nearly 20k miles
of varying duties, our 01 Passport has
suited us extremely well. The cabin is
well laid out and the 4wd is a snap to
use. It has handled 4wd in the snow to
our favorite ski areas and off road in
the mountains getting us to to places
only accessable by 4wd. The large
cargo area and easy folding rear seats
been extremely useful. Steering and
braking is predicatble and what we
would expect for an SUV based on a
truck frame.


Best Features

Looks great. Easy to use and capable 4wd. Versatile cargo room. Good power from the V6 (especially in "sport" mode). Interior layout. Sunroof. Full size spare!


Worst Features

Front seats would benefit with more support (lower back and laterally) for better long distance as well as off- road comfort. There should be a CD player in lieu of cassette player! Would prefer spare be rear mounted vs. the underside placement.
