Auto mirror tilting downward when in reverse.
It does - but is of little use (to me); I rely more on the back up cameras (with the projected curving lines to show the path).
Now if those same outside mirrors were to AUTO fold close - with ignition off - and then AUTO Open at start up - I'd be happy.

I thought you were making a list of the automatic features on the Elite, not the usefulness of those features. :unsure:

Unless the Mods slap me it's MY thread, I can mix it up if I want to. FEEL FREE TO DO THE SAME, all comments (valid or not) are welcome.
Just as I may mix it up with Canadian Blend; or maybe guns, dogs, and red heads.

Have fun! with it.

True, but in your post that opened this thread, you specifically asked if you had missed anything; I was simply answering that question. :rolleyes:

Auto lights on when you remote start? Oh wait, that's not an option in 2019 PP Elite (but was the standard in my 2017 Escape Titanium)

There are tons of auto features and decisions made for you. Most are unrefined and irritate me. Auto braking, auto cruise, auto brights, fob sensor, auto tailgate, and a long list of more features are badly implemented and fooled at the wrong times or clumsy. Still a good vehicle but could have been a great one. I end up disabling most of the garbage I can because it is not predictable and easy to use. Honda sensor programming sucks is what I find common with all the problems.

You can make the longest list you want but a list is just a list. A substantive evaluation of said features is more interesting.

I find that to be true in many areas, oftentimes other people.

I'm happy with these features - but you're entitled to your opinions of them. Obviously over time they will be better refined.

Here's an example of the original seat heater, note any differences?

I totally agree that many of the auto features are poorly implemented. I like to ask friends who drive other vehicles if they'd buy the same vehicle again. Many say "Yes" but, unfortunately I say "No" due to the lack of refinement of the auto features I paid a bunch of money for.

Beware, poor gammer (sic) and inproper (sic) spelling will really raise my cackles.

I didn't see whatever the post said, but to be clear I was not commenting in any personal way or deliberately raining on any parades, I just responded regarding how I perceive the long list of automated features in actual value. Apologies if my response seemed coarse or offensive and please don't feel I'm attacking anyone. Maybe I was irritated because the auto braking system has slammed the brakes on me twice for no reason (plenty of distance ahead, I never tail gate) or because LKAS and ACC bounce around terribly and auto brights is not reliable.

I just find that with this vehicle, so many of the features are not implemented as well as I expect and this forum is one place I think people might relate or have other relevant info. If a feature is included, I expect it to be trouble free and intuitive. Honda sensing, or at least the generation of the technology on the Passport, is not trouble free or as intuitive as it could be. Easy comparison against other brands via test drives.

Anyway as you stated, this is a forum and we are all entitled to our respectful (if different) opinions. Carry on.

No need to apologize, your opinion is just as important as mine (and the next guys too).
Even if I'm right <GRIN>.
