2001 Honda Passport review: Our expert's take

Vehicle Overview
Passport is an Isuzu Rodeo that wears Honda badges. Passport is built by Isuzu in Lafayette, Ind., and adds a handful of new standard features this year. The key additions are rear disc brakes and a limited-slip differential for four-wheel-drive models.Acura, the luxury division of Honda, is introducing the car-based MDX SUV this year, and Honda dealers are expected to get a version of this vehicle for the 2003 model year as a replacement for the Passport.

All models come in four-door wagon styling with a tailgate that swings open to the left. The rear window swings up separately. The spare tire stores under the vehicle on the EX and EX-L models, and it rests on the tailgate on the base LX.

All models seat five with two front buckets and a three-place, 60/40 split rear bench seat that folds for additional cargo room. Leather is standard on the EX and EX-L models, and the latter gains a standard four-way power driver’s seat.

Under the Hood
A 3.2-liter V-6 engine with 205 horsepower teams with either a four-speed automatic or five-speed manual transmission and either two- or four-wheel drive.

This car is very reliable and comfortable, I have never had any issues with it. The powerful V6 engine makes overtaking on the highway a breeze. and the leather interior makes for a soft luxurious ride!


2001 Honda Passport

I've owned this car since 2002, and bought it with 17,000 miles on it. Although I've loved this SUV I had know Idea that it was really Isuzu. Honda's first attempt at making an SUV. This vehicle has had many issues and my Honda mechanic has told me with the issues it should have been recalled long ago. The fuel sensor doesn't work and would cost over $1000.00 to fix. So, my gas tank always says "Empty" so I have to go by the Odometer and the check engine light is always on.

Make sure you get a year model after 1999. The 2000 and newer models are well built and very little problems. There is no reason why you cannot get at least 200k miles on these with just little normal maintenance and taken care of. The check engine light is related to the fuel sending unit and should be recalled soon if Honda would like to protect its good name. Otherwise many years of pleasant driving with this one.
