General Comments:

I LOVE my SUV. It is fast, and the A/C works great.

I had 1 major problem and it got really bad; the motor started knocking really hard. The shop said that it was normal for this SUV. I bought a can of RESTORE and it worked great. It stopped knocking. I put a can in every 3000 miles. I love this SUV.

Summary:

Not bad for a used gas guzzling SUV

Faults:

Had to replace a pair of the caps that attach to the spark plugs.

Tires needed replacement.

Allignment -- car was probably in an accident before, I suspect.

General Comments:

Not bad for a gas guzzling SUV.

I think it gets about 20-25 mpg on a good day.

You might be surprised to find that for a big care, inside it doesn't seem so big. I say it is not laid out the best. It sits high, but headroom seems a little low.

On the highway it is not loud noisy, but it is kind of noisy. This noise is not from engine problems, but from whatever noise insulation was used (probably not that much).

When it rains the windows can get pretty moist and foggy. I've found that the AC solves that, but it seems plain wrong to have AC and heat on at the same time.

This is made by Isuzu, but is a Honda. I thought this sounded weird -- but a look under the hood confirmed an Isuzu engine in a Honda body.

I rated it 8 in categories that others may rate higher. In exchange for 3000 mile oil changes, it runs without incident. I really cannot complain.

Overall, this is not a bad car if you want a used SUV. I would say do not spend more than $3500 for one of these 1995 Passports, particularly since it is likely bigger problems will come. But it is not a bad deal as long as you realize you'll spend a bit on gas.

It's not wrong to have the A/C and heater on at the same time, in fact it is recommended when needed of course, usually if humidity is high and the air is cold, most notably at temperatures close to freezing.

I think if it fogs up more than usual when you turn the A/C off, it must be a condensate drainage problem, or a similar fault.
