I've owned mine for about a month now, it is working very smoothly. I had a 2016 Pilot Elite that I expearnce this erratic transmission issue in, which at the time I didn't think it was to bad either,
This is great to know ThanksI've owned mine for about a month now, it is working very smoothly. I had a 2016 Pilot Elite that I expearnce this erratic transmission issue in, which at the time I didn't think it was to bad either,
yepI've only had mine for a week and have only experienced smooth shifting. It is certainly more enjoyable than listening to the shiftless whine of the 2014 CR-V with cvt that I traded in for the Passport.
I hope you didn't buy a 2019 Passport, sounds like you would be unhappy with your purchase.My experience has been disappointing. Acceleration is relatively slow/weak, shifting is often late or awkward. Also there is a noticeable lag between the moment your foot pushes the pedal and the engine/transmission reacts.
It seems this problem is not new and is also present on the Pilot, see for example:
"However, while passing, I found the transmission still falls flat. A quick punch of the accelerator pedal is met with delay, and the transmission never seems to grab the right gear the first time. It ends up feeling like a one-or two-second delay. It's an unfortunate bit of discordance with the rest of the Pilot's pretty good and very smooth driving experience."
