Vehicle2001 Honda Passport LX 4WD 4dr SUV (3.2L 6cyl 4A)
ReviewI 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.
Best Features4 wheel drive, hugged the road in the snow. Good power and acceleration.
Worst FeaturesI 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.
