To many problems. by crazy8 on 03/25/2007. Trim: 2001 Honda Passport 4WD EX-L, Owned 2 years.
Pros: Purchased used 2yrs ago, it starts all the time even at 40 below without a plug in. Easy to park and get out the way easily. I can get a ton of groceries in the back. Even my dog likes the back. 4 wheel drive is awsome. Great stero system.
Cons: To much maintance, replaced shocks at 67k mi. Ran out of oil. Engine light would not go off and would not pass emissions. repalaced fuel pump. Found out it can burn 1 quart every1000 miles and its normal UGH! I cant afford that. Honda states this normal usage. They should put this in writing when you purchase this. Replaced water pump, cv joints were cracked. cd player quit working. trany slips but they cannot find the problem. Drives bad when gas gauge is low. Replaced timing belt. Hope this stops trany silipage. Door trim falling off.
Overall review: I like that it keeps going despite it has problems , It has 86,000 mi on it and I did purchase the extended warranty . Thank Goodness. I am going to monitor oil usage to see if something else is going on with it besides the crazy theory that 1q every 1,000 mi is normal. I expected a lower maintance car from Honda. I felt like I could take a long road trip and not worry about it breaking down. But now I dont trust this car. I have kids and at 50 below I need a reliable car. Dont live up to its name.
