2001 Honda Passport EXL from North America
Crossing my fingers!
I just got the 2001 Honda Passport almost 2 months ago. Just like a everybody else, I thought I was getting a Honda car.
The gas meter always shows empty even when full. So I took it to the mechanic and I got that Fuel Level Sensor code Code P0463. So the repair will be about $600 ($400 part, $150 service and it is not at the dealer). The fuel level sensor is attached to the gas pump and cannot be purchased without it, hence the $400 price for the part.
All of a sudden one of the windshield wipers stopped working. This wasn't a motor problem, rather it was a broken rod ($200 repair including about $45 parts), which can happen. But now, also, windshield wipers will act up randomly. Most of the times, the wipers will stop long after I set them in off position, and other time will not stop at all until I turn the car off, and the back on.
Wipers fluid intake tank brace, which holds it in place broke and I had to replace it ($18 part).
All in all, I have this car for less than two months, and the car runs very well and it is comfortable to drive. However, I am now crossing my fingers as I take the car to the mechanic to replace the fuel level sensor, which comes together with the gas pump.
I am disappointed because I thought I bought a Honda, until I called the dealer for part prices and they told me to call Isuzu, because the were the makers for the 2001 Passport, not Honda!
I have owned the car for less than 2 months and my total cost, with today's repair will be about $850 dollars... I am nervous folks!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
