Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

Passport 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 54,000 miles
2001 Honda Passport exl Isuzu mfg in Aug 2000. Purchased used in Nov 2004, was leased to 1 person, then at end of lease auctioned to place I bought from. Front brake pads and rotors replaced 1 month after purchase. Check engine light goes off 1 month after purchase. Exhaust flange replaced 1 month after purchase. 3 months after purchase fuel indicator goes wacky, check engine light goes off and on. 1 year after purchase engine dies, intercooler was culprit, only 76,000 miles on vehicle. Transmission was found to have a leak, the right servo rubber seal was replace. Exhuast has leak at or up to Y pipe area. Something underneath is cracked severly. I am depressed, as I paid $19,000 am stuck paying $31,000 in long run through financial institute, and can't do anything with negative equity, and bad credit history. Dealership refused to fix problems when first purchased and still refuses to offer financial relief. Warranty co. And financial institute are just as uncaring. I was made to believe it was a sturdy, long lasting vehicle, and have since found out otherwise. Oil is big problem, have to feed it half to 3/4 qt. Every 2 days. Gas consumption is poor, can only go 110 mi. Per fill up. Oil, oil filter and air filter are changed on regular basis. Shocks are the pits, takes bumps hard, and feels like it is going to break in the rear. Also known problem is the rear clunk, thump on stop and go, is caused by a item underneath that turns. Could of been killed when engine died on major highway, but was able to roll off to shoulder before ceasure. I consider major depression from this a injury.
