One of best cars I've had

by Big Traveler from Leesburg, Virginia on Sun Sep 26 2010

Had my 1998 Passport EX for over 5 years, bought it used with 79,000 miles. Very reliable car, strong engine, great off road handling, out of 4 vehicles in my household this passpont was the ONLY ONE that made it thru this last year snow, had to drive in the middle of a storm to help one of my sons friends and take him to amtrak in order to make it back home. We passed huge 4x4 trucks, and SUV's that where stuck in the snow, felt so, so good. All I had to replace in 5 years where tires, alternator belt and recently clutch (169K miles), that is normal.

Cost more to try to repair

by AuntyNae41 from Riverside, CA on Sat Jun 17 2017

I thought Honda was well built, boy was I ever wrong. After I bought it it finally cost more to keep repairing than it did to buy the car. Never again.

Pontiac Vibe

by Mantra from Hoosick Falls, NY purchased in Bennington,VT on Mon Aug 27 2012

Never broke down. Didn't have to replace everything within 8 months. Loved the look, ride and the gas mileage were great.

Our Take on the 1998 Honda Passport

There's a certain conceit that some car buyers have.

They feel sophisticated, looking down their nose at Detroit and its identical cars with different labels, masking a similar vehicle underneath.

You can almost hear them say, "We'd never fall for THAT.'`

Then they go and buy a Honda Passport. Fooled 'ya.

What the Honda Passport is, is an Izusu Rodeo. Both are built at the Suburu-Izusu plant in Lafayette, Ind. Like Ike and Mike, they look alike.

That means a subtler exterior look this year, that gives the vehicle a more sophisticated look. It also means a shorter wheelbase.

The vehicle comes in four flavors, two-wheel-drive or four-wheel-drive, LX or upscale EX. All models feature a... Read More
