Greetings-Just purchased a Touring, and looking forward to sharing info with likeminded peeps. Hope I didn't make a mistake by not purchasing an Elite.

WELCOME!! I just joined this club too a couple hours ago. Hope your deal went as smooth and easy as mine did. That F-ing I guy can ruin the whole experience if you let them.

Parked my Obscenely Blue Touring in my garage, had to take a couple stabs at it as I park backed in. This thing is wider than my Highlander. So alot of Pports warning bells n whistles were going crazy as I backed up a couple times to finally get into my garage. It looked like a video game in there, LOL
I need to practice more. peace, e.

Thanks so much! Dealer made profit, we paid what we wanted! Win, Win!
We are BMW people so bells and whistles are second nature at this point. Haha!

This is my 4th new Honda since 2008, so I guess I'm a Honda guy. :oops:

I did like my Toyotas' '03 Tacoma 4dr, '15 Highlander. Just gotta move on sometimes. peace, .e

No, you didn't make a mistake with the Touring. It's everything the Elite is except for a few additional features I can live without, like ventilated seats, wireless phone charging (my phone is too old for that feature to work), rain sensing wipers (had them on a Lexus, didn't like them), heated steering wheel (yes, would have been nice but not for the few thousand dollars more than the Touring), and I did *not* want the black wheels that come on the Elite. Be happy with your decision, enjoy your new Passport. I'm sure enjoying mine!

Here is S.E. Texas, heated seats are of no use to me. Wife likes em in her Crosstour so I guess the passenger side will get some use. I do like the ventilated seats but not enough to pay for them, lol.

I was impressed with how many features the EX-L model had. I was leaning that way for my purchase. But I just did not like the rims styles it came with at all. I've always liked the 5 spoke, Cragar style wheels I've seen for years. That and the prices of Touring in my area got way better recently.
These Touring wheels look classic, IMO.

Congrats on the Touring,,,, Blans . You can’t go wrong with it . Had many Honda’s in my life . My black touring is my favorite . Only thing I did was get rid of those Continental street tires , in my opinion they don’t hang well for all around driving . You’ll enjoy .?

Thanks Marv, This is my 10th Honda, so I know I didn’t go wrong, just didn’t like wheels on Elite and gave up other features that I am used to. Am pretty certain that will be a change in future editions. . Fingers crossed.
