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.

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.

The Passport looks fine. Its interior is spacious and comfortable. So physically, it's rather ideal. But for handling and performance, it's terrible. The ride is bumpy, the acceleration is slow, and the turns are uncomforting. Definitely a good car to pick up groceries or drive around a dirt road, but not recommended for any kind of performance driving.

We've owned the Passport new since 2001. In retrospect we should have purchased the 4wd model. Pricing was good as Honda was looking to clear inventory ahead of the Pilot launch. Other than tendency to ping and a soft suspension design it's been a good utilitarian vehicle that we have had few problems with. Ride/handling: The suspension is soft and under dampened from the factory. Moderate upgrades to the shocks are warranted when needed. Suspension tends to bottom even on moderate bumps. Body lean is excessive compared to equivalent full frame SUV's of the same vintage. Drivetrain: Honda/Isuzu have had problems with intake manifold leaks and pinging related to EGR and computer programming. Our vehicle has had the computer re-flashed and we use seafoam to clean the intake on a periodic basis. The vehicle still pings periodically.
