We've had CRVs since 2002 and this latest model has a great feel on the road, no road noise which used to be an issue and the Touring comes with all the bells and whistles.

The biggest problem is the factory installed Garmin navigation.

With Apple Car play and Android Auto you won’t miss the navigation which Waze and Maps usually does a better job with anyway.

The Passport is a functional, capable vehicle that delivers solid limited off-road, excellent handling in snow, superb transport capacity, and comfortable long-range driving experience.

25 Apr

I am very happy with the Passport, would buy another.

4 Mar

I purchased a 2020 Honda Passport and I can't believe how bad the gas mileage is.

26 Feb

The Passport is a very responsive car - to some maybe too responsive - as 9 gears sometimes feel like a stick shift drive.

15 Jan

The Passport has a good solid feel and the ride is as smooth as you'd ever expect in a mid-size SUV.

27 Oct

although the car is quiet, the microphone (located on the ceiling just back of the rear-view mirror) apparently has no sound insulation at all, so the road noise if you are on the other end of the call is horrible.

13 Sep

Unable to silence wind noise from sun roof, no one sells wind deflectors.

9 Sep

My pilot was very comfortable the issue with the passport is wind noise and the seats are not as comfortable they need to be as adjustable as the pilots were.

The speakers started with a tick noise and all the screens went blank/black.

After less than 500 miles a crackling noise freezing the infotainment started when hitting a bump, along with a nauseating chemical smell.

10 Dec

Wind noise is ok.

7 Jun

I brought to the attention of the noise when I talked with the salesman a few days after purchase.

30 Apr

It also developed an annoying vibration at low or high speeds.

27 Oct

We have had a couple of instances where we were coming to a stop behind another car, and the Honda Sensing apparently decided we weren't stopping soon enough and SLAMMED on the brakes.

9 Sep

I do not like the engine stopping when you brake or the automated steering and braking system.

Soon after, about every warning light came on, indicating engine, transmission and brake system issues.

But at times it will aggressively apply the brakes for no reason.

8 Nov

The forward collision is extremely iffy, it will go off if your going up a hill or if there's a shadow on the road, which wouldn't be a big deal except it also hits the brakes when this happens.

16 Sep

What's missing: head up display so you can keep your eyes on the road, electronic brake (not only is the emergency brake manual, it is a foot pedal), adaptive cruise only goes to 20 mpg and is not stop and go, side mirrors do not fold automatically.

30 Jun

When I drive on a 2 lane road and a car is coming at me from the opposite direction my car will flash “BRAKE” and put on the brakes rather aggressively.

At just over $31,000 for the Sport model, I felt it should have had more than a 5 inch center screen.

1 Nov

I immediately looked in my rear view mirror to make certain I wasn't going to be rear ended and thankfully the car behind me was about 1/8 mile back and the Passport finally started to accelerate again.

19 Jun

There is an annoying wind noise from driver side window starting at 30 mph.

19 May

The car has had several other problems included the current one, that sounds a popping noise when the wheel is turned to the right.

9 May

Also, the hood seems loose, passing a semi or in strong wind the hood shakes.

10 Sep

Dislikes - Small rear view mirror, lack of blind spot warning on this trim, no tailgate lock(dumb).

18 May

I miss the lane watch on passenger side, they make up for it with blind spot information(still wish they would of kept lane watch as well) it's still on the black edition and the RTL T. This truck has it all!!

6 Mar

Also, shouldn't have to spend 4k more in the trim to get the blind spot technology.

17 Feb

I have a 2019 RTL-E which I bought new and the brakes are horrible.

12 Jun

I think the brakes could have been upgraded a little more,

23 May

The brake pedal travel is a bit long.

Below is my review of the vehicle: I found the interior cramped especially around the driving pedals -- the parking brake pedal interferes with foot and leg movement.

Without ON of Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS) feature is activating automatically and taking over driving or steering of the vehicle and attempt to steer the vehicle back into the center of the lane.

8 Feb

The infotainment system (as others have mentioned) is outdated and malfunctions from time to time.

27 Jan

Well at about 23,000 miles 2 months later the emmisions systems light turns back on again and i noticed I was not able to accelerate much I knew something was off.

5 Jan

Figured out it was coming from speakers.

20 Dec

Next, with the pre-collision system, it brakes on its own, and I’m scared that it’ll brake in the middle of the road.

11 Dec

I've heard of popping and cracking coming from the speakers

2 Dec

I also experienced the popping and cracking noise coming from what sounds like the speakers.

17 Nov

At approximately 300 miles I started hearing a popping/crackling sound from the windshield/dash area.

30 Oct

Touch screen entertainment center not very sensitive, clunky design, audio quality a little below average.

12 Oct

The problem starts with the popping sound and only gets worse.

24 Jul

Noisy engine when accelerating.

10 Feb

Should of paid attention to the reviews, it is under powdered for a V-6 and the gas mileage is not all that great also do not like the CVT transmission, buy the German engineering its much better,a lot of road noise

8 Feb

Honda said it was just an engine noise?

5 Jan

A month after owning this car it made a horrible cracking noise.

Cracking and piping noise in the dash couldn’t be fixed.

This means not only does the radio not work

26 Jul

It’s like they have a short in them.. they crackle and make a static noise.. the whole radio and dash board have shorted out a couple of times.

25 Feb

It is coming from the dash/radio/speakers.

21 Aug

The only feature on this vehicle I do not like is that automatic collision control is literally slams on the brakes when you come up on a vehicle and then it hesitates to accelerate.

2 Apr

Vacuum goes out of brake booster over night, makes brake peddle hard to press to start vehicle.

8 Feb

Next, the brakes are loud and vibrate when stopping from highway speeds.

20 Dec

Next, with the pre-collision system, it brakes on its own, and I’m scared that it’ll brake in the middle of the road.

9 Aug

The brake light and notification comes on when nothing is around me- I have dropped the sensitivity on that to the lowest setting and it still goes off beeping at me for no reason.

16 Jun

What I do not like is the transmission is jerky and when you put the car in park it tends to roll forward or back, particularly if you are on a hill and take your foot off the brake.

26 Mar

The one issue with this technology is that it tracks the car in front, if that car is turning then it will sometimes continue tracking and hit the brakes.

27 Jan

Less than 20,000 miles on it and the brakes make a popping noise when backing, dealer says it's normal.

I would improve the noise of the engine especially when driving on a quiet road, the turbo is said to make a high pitch hum that can be annoying to hear constantly.

Uncomfortable seats on a long Ride, Battery issue that Honda Refused to address in Some CR-V EX, American Honda Poor Customer Support after the Sale.

The battery died with no warning

12 Mar

Also came out of a church for a wedding and my battery was dead and the car is practically brand new very embarrassing and I heard I’m not the only one with the same problem definitely would not recommend a CRV to anybody.

21 Dec

Inaccurate warning lights, sensors drained the battery 3 times.

8 Oct

I asked should this do this every day and if so would this not damage the battery, and to stop this noise I have to start car.

29 Sep

This car drover really nice my only 2 concerns are reports of a dead battery and also the Oil delusion might still exist on the 2019 models.

CX-5 felt cramped in rear seats and biggest drawback was no touchscreen which made zooming in and out of maps on highway, switching between different apps frustrating.

Map function is on while driving and suddenly goes black without any contact, this has happened several times.

31 Mar

The navigation system is impossible to program.

29 Jan

They said it is a software problem that only Garmin can solve and they don't know if and when that will be.

26 Nov

but be warned, the voice level on Sat Nav is to low to hear even at top setting and Honda won’t investigate.

24 Nov

The lack of a navigation option on EX models and above seems like a very silly exclusion because the console is exactly the same, and the underpowered USB ports in the front seat leave a lot to be desired.

22 Nov

And the Garmin navigation is awful.

25 Oct

Map Navigation is eady to use and the only thing about it is it lags a second or two when telling you to turn, so be careful or you might drive by your turn as it is saying turn here.

2 Aug

GPS system does not show the actual road I am driving on.

30 Jul

Wish it had a better navigation system vs using navigation through my phone, otherwise no complaints.

18 Oct

but on the highway it lacked power to pass, I would have the gas pedal to the floor and there was no rush of power, you had to plan your pass miles in advance because it was very slow.

Since the purchase, on cold days left turn from the stop, you can hear some rattling noise, took it to dealer several times and can't figure it out.

11 Feb

At 114,000 miles, we are tied of the creaking, and with trade in value of $9,500, not worth repairing.

14 May

Lots of noise due to cheap stabilizer links by honda on this vehicle!

20 Aug

We also have horribly squeaky brake-like sounds when backing out of our inclined driveway which they can't figure out or fix.

I made them clear that I feel vibrations and noise coming from the steering wheel during parking of the car ( you have the steer for parking) or when driving out, all this vibrations are very noticeable at low speed.

: recall problems - inferior paint resulting in rust.

29 Sep

Honda has already attempted 3 times to fix now for the 4th time paint is peeling off in the exact same spots.

14 Sep

This is not acceptable to have body work on a brand new vehicle especially when the mfg plant is 30 minutes away where they have newly painted bumpers to install on new Pilots.

28 Jul

Have extended warranty luckily, because it had to be in the shop for over a week to rebuild 3 of the cylinders.

20 Aug

but didn't mention it WHILE IT WAS UNDER WARRANTY because it wasn't "bad enough"; yeah, waiting until it progresses and is NO LONGER UNDER WARRANTY seems legit.

10 Aug

After 4 months, the sunroof started to leak.As soon as the 36K mile warranty ran out, transmission issues.

Road noise is loud.

24 Mar

Spongy braking, hiccuppy acceleration, upper body roll, poor sound and a noisy interior.

24 Feb

There's almost no wind noise when driving on the highway.

11 Apr

but wind noise and road noise become annoying @ 80mph.

31 Jan

However, if you own this vintage of Pilot, I would recommend you either replace the radiator or bypass it with an aftermarket transmission cooler ASAP.

14 Jan

We had the transmission and cooling system work done at two separate intervals (111,500) for transmission and (124,600) for the cooling system (Radiator, water pump, etc..) each $1100.

1 Mar

Transmission is still holding up as we speak and I continue to beat the crap out of this car (random full throttle accelerations, racing friends, fast turns, and hard braking) so it’s probably the reason why my tires and brakes wear out so often,

23 Apr

The radiator recently "failed" causing the coolant to be circulated into the transmission.

13 Oct

The transmission failed. Just.

28 Jan

Some occasional shifting confusion from trans can make for rough shifting.

10 Feb

The automatic transmission has the strangest kick down I've ever experienced.

One key difference is that the highlander is full time 4x4, pilot is a full time front wheel drive with 4x4 coming in when traction requires or in low gear and selected on.

13 Oct

Don't like where the gear shift is up near steering wheel, temporary spare tire (buying my own full size 235/16" rim and spare), or that back glass doesn't open seperately.

21 Apr

Just purchased my Honda and the one problem that is major for me besides not getting the gas mileage it shows on its sticker, is how jerky it is when the motor/engine shifts gears up & down.

6 Mar

I think the transmission "hunts" for gears and downshifts more often than I would like,

12 Dec

interior switch gear is odd: the single stalk to operate the wipers is confusing as I own and operate two other cars.

1 Dec

At highway speeds, a little accelerator pressure results in constant downshifts and hunting for the right gear.

18 Nov

But everytime I try to put it in gear I accidentally turn on the wipers because their so close and similiar.

One minor flaw, which only goes to show, Hondas' designers are human, is the close proximity of the windshield wiper stalk to the gearshift lever.

The dealer actually told me with a straight face it would be $4500 to fix the system.

24 Aug

Honda skimped on everything from the A/C, to the complete lack of sound deadening and suspension travel.

28 Nov

My dealer replaced the entire AC system under warranty with no problems after that.

15 Aug

I can't get the dealer to figure out where a rattling sound is coming from whenever I drive on rough surfaces.

13 May

Had a $600 transmission sensor repair last year, and then the A/C compressor imploded and destroyed the entire AC system a few weeks ago.

11 May

Sensors failing, defective parts, high maintenance requirements (rear differential fluid often needs changed), defectively designed A/C system.

28 Apr

A/C condenser blew up with 55k miles requiring a complete replacement of the entire A/C system costing $3500.

27 Aug

At 71,000 miles, the A/C compressor blew, contaminating the whole system.

4 Aug

The dealership, after contacting Honda, decided to charge me just $160 to change the whole AC system as they realized that this thing has been becoming too common for 3 to 4 yr. old CR-Vs.

11 Sep

speakers from stereo, latch where you can place your gas cap while fueling up fell off twice, hood of vehicle failing to close, brought back to dealership twice for repairs, problems with brakes X1.

My dealer replaced the entire AC system under warranty with no problems after that.

14 Apr

The A.C. unit completely blew a couple months later when the warrenty expired--the cost $2,600 out of pocket.

29 Dec

The super expensive ($500) oxygen sensor went out just after the warranty expired and that was a disappointment.

9 Aug

Sadly, that excitement only lasted as long as the warranty.

26 Jul

If I would not have had extended warranty on this car I would have to have paid $4,000.00 to fix it!

24 Feb

Had an oil leak within first month, I believe it is a manufacturing problem with the original oil filter (put on too tight) on the O ring (this is where some of those fires occured), fixed under warranty.

20 Aug

Without the warranty, I would have been out $1,600.

24 Aug

O2 Sensors went out at 80k.

I am JUST now replacing the front brakes after 100,000 miles and replaced the back brakes for the first time less than a year ago.

19 Oct

My AC went out around 45000 miles, brakes 46000, check engine light now coming on at 60000 miles - the fix is over $300.

16 Jul

Brakes have also been repaired a couple times.

31 May

At 50k miles, I'm having to replace 1st set of tires and brakes, nothing else so far.

27 Mar

Now a few days and a few hundred miles after getting it back from the dealer, it appears to need yet another transmission as well as rear brake work (it was fine when it went in).

10 Sep

I bought my very first new Honda and everything went wrong with it rotors, starter, emergency brake was never even hooked up.

27 Jan

Rear brakes had to be replaced already.

16 Oct

The only thing I am not crazy about is the emergency brake

11 Sep

speakers from stereo, latch where you can place your gas cap while fueling up fell off twice, hood of vehicle failing to close, brought back to dealership twice for repairs, problems with brakes X1.

20 Aug

Only other problems: windshield and paint on the hood chip easily, brake rotors have been worked on, drivers seat became loose, and I've grown to hate the "popping" sound the ABS system makes when it self-checks after starting.

I don't find the road noise to be a problem - it is quieter than my CRV.

I was hit by a Taurus, I got out of the Honda and could not see a dent, finally I saw it, only $900 to repair (Taurus totalled) These are great cars, mileage could be better, wind noise bad, great product.

There are some extras, like automatic lights and power passenger seats that the EXL does not have.

the standard radio/cd speaker system is not very strong, and sound is not good with the windows down.

The radio rattles and is of poor quality and there is a lot of tire noise.

10 Aug

The only real complaint has been the A/C system.

11 Apr

My mechanic told me there is a problem with the compressor on these cars (depending on where the part came from) Again, Honda split the cost.

29 Aug

The final straw is the estimated $2500 to replace the entire AC System since the compressor blew pieces of metal all in the system.

23 Aug

The a/c, as others have reported, is the worst part of owning this vehicle.

7 Aug

Honda was no help with repairs which is disturbing since the AC Compressor is an obvious problem throughout the country.

23 Jul

The Air Conditioning Compressor blew up only 2 weeks after I bought it, the Sales Manager refused to help pay for any of the repair or parts for the AC System.

16 Jul

but because the compressor in the air conditioning system blew up after the second week of ownership, it's presently being repaired at a cost of $1974.00.

Air conditioning died at 90,000 miles.

4) Struts replaced at 70,000 miles 5) A/C compressor replaced in 2015 Other than that it has just been batteries, tires and brake pads.

I then checked the oil after the engine oil light came on and to my shock.

So far the only issue I've had is the glove compartment light stays on all the time; the switch isn't catching.

The a/c experience and nearly constant check engine light are why I will leave.

Right now the engine light is on and we can't really resolve that matter.
