2000 Honda Passport Overview

By Cars.com Editors
Vehicle Overview
Passport is a copy of the Isuzu Rodeo, and both are built in Indiana by Isuzu. With no truck production of its own, Honda turned to Isuzu as a quick way to jump into the burgeoning sport utility vehicle market in 1994.

Three years later, Honda introduced its hybrid CR-V, which currently outsells Passport by nearly five-to-one. There is considerable speculation that Honda will drop the truck-based Passport in a year or two and build a new SUV based on its very popular Odyssey minivan platform.

Interior
All versions of the Passport seat five with two front buckets and a three-place 60/40 split-bench seat in the rear that folds for additional cargo room. Leather is standard on the EX and new EX-L models.

Exterior
The new EX-L model wears two-tone paint, color-keyed side moldings and fender flares. All versions have new grilles and front and rear fascias. On the EX and EX-L, the spare tire moves from the tailgate to a new storage spot under the vehicle. It remains on the tailgate on the base LX. All models come in four-door styling with a tailgate that swings open to the left. The rear window swings up separately.

Under the Hood
A 205-horsepower, 3.2-liter V-6 teams with either manual or automatic transmissions and either 2WD or 4WD.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
