A great little Hondsuzu... or Isuzda?
Head gasket failed at 167k, thought it was a cracked head, but head checked out OK.
Small rot hole in the frame in the far passenger side, however rest of the frame is rock solid.
Tiny bits of rust on the seams in the door jambs, seems to be common upon seeing other Passports/Rodeos.
PCM failed at 161k, replaced with working yard unit.
Very nice riding SUV, not as brash as say a Toyota 4-Runner. For those that don't know.. the Passport is a rebadged Isuzu Rodeo, and that's all it is, nothing else is changed, just the badges.
Controls are easy to use clearly marked, however the radio is a far reach to change it.
For having 168k, it hasn't had much trouble. The head gasket I could foresee considering it is a iron block/aluminum head combo.
It's slow... but what can you expect from a 120hp 4 cylinder in a 3500lb SUV? Plus it's not like it's a race car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
