This is my first Passport. 2019 and 35 miles on it when I purchased it. I have had it for 5 months with 5500 miles. 2 days ago while I was driving in traffic, my truck turns off. I first thought it was the Idle Stop but I hadn't stopped. Engine light started flashing. Warning lights started scrolling on message screen. Couldn't restart engine and couldn't get it to turn off. Sat in traffic getting cussed out for 2-3 mins and then engine just shuts off. I was able to start car after that. Very scary situation. Taking to dealer first thing Monday morning.

Has this happened to anyone else?

Can you clarify please--the above is not clear. You were able to restart the car after WHAT?

WOW, that could have ended very bad for you. Glad to hear you didn't get hit sitting there like a dead duck. Curious did anything odd happen just prior to the situation like hitting a bump or pot hole hard? Wondering if something got jarred loose or bounced around? Please keep us in the loop as to what the dealer comes up with. Question to anyone out there... I know vehicles now a days are rolling computers. Do cars have the same capability to record similar to the "black box" that is in aircraft?

I had the flashing engine light come on after 90 minutes of highway driving, as I was getting off the exit. The engine did not turn off, but it ran very rough as I drove to my appointment. After my appointment was over (about 2 hours) I came out and everything was fine. Took it to dealer because I was freaking out and pissed off (2019 with less than 4000 miles) and the only thing the codes showed was a misfire. No explanation or recommendation. And THEN they wanted to charge me a $130 diagnostic fee, since they technically didn't find anything wrong. Fortunately, they decided to waive that...

That sounds like a VCM problem of some sort doesn't it.

OP thanks for clarifying--I get it now. Hope it does not happen again!!!

Yeah we can call the PP a "truck", at least that's common in a couple of areas of the country.

I'm sorry to hear about the issue, hope it gets resolved.

My Passport is my first non-car, so I'm interested to hear what others call theirs in conversation with others. 'Car' is wrong, 'SUV' and 'vehicle' seem weird to say.

I've been going with truck, although, I have had someone question my use of the term to refer to my Passport.

I sold a Toyota Tundra that was my daily driver for 13 years and had a Tacoma for 7 years prior to that. I bought my Passport last August and can't bring myself to call it a truck for some strange reason. I really like the PP, but go with "vehicle" in conversation.

My (former) smaller CRV was classified as a SCOOTER.
The larger Passport is classified as a BUGGY.
My tow vehicle is a TRUCK.

Ohio, did they find anything, tell you anything, This happened a month ago on my 2019 Passport Sport as I was heading on on a vacation trip. Luckily close to home. Was just accelerating up to 70 miles per hour when I lost power, all the system warning lights started going off, cascading through the error messages. Dealer took it right in, identified the error code as a Cam Error, could not duplicate it... sent me on my way.. About 1200 miles later... it just happened again, again at freeway speeds, luckily was able to get to the shoulder. The Service Manager had told me the computer is designed to reset, if possible, after cycling the engine on and off and number of times. I did that, and was able to get power again after the 3rd time and the warning lights stopped. Got it to the dealer, same error code. They identified the culprit as and replaced the Camshaft Position Sensor. So after they had the car two days, one of which was waiting for the part, I picked up the car. 30 miles later... it did the same thing, luckily on surface streets in town. Didn't lose all power... but it was sketchy power and drove to dealership which was on my way home. Have not heard yet on next steps.

This is scary! I have an Elite PP (purchased new, April '19) with 11,300 miles on it and no such engine stalling has occurred as you described. I hope they do find the problem and get it corrected. This is the first posting I've read here describing such a problem.
