Just looking to gauge overall owner rating of the passport. I know some have some unfortunate issues, mostly I see positive reviews.
Please explain a brief (or long) reason for vote.
No bought and paid for fake news
No collusion!!!!
Edit. Oops can admin move this to proper section. One shouldn’t make a thread on a tiny cell phone

My rating is "10". I owned a 2017 Ridgeline and liked it very much, solid, quiet, well built. I decided I wanted to have an SUV again, so I traded the Ridgeline for a 2018 Chevy Equinox. I hadn't owned a Chevy vehicle since 1993 and after a few months I realized why. I won't go into the details, just to say I took my loss and traded it for a 2019 Passport AWD Touring, Crystal Black Pearl. I love it. As with the Ridgeline, the Passport is solid, very quiet inside, and I really like the interior controls. The stereo in the Touring model includes a sub-woofer and the sound is great for a factory system. I've only owned my Passport for two months and have absolutely no complaints about it. The only thing I miss from the Chevy Equinox is the overhead view "birds eye view" camera, which is really useful for parking. Hopefully Honda will include that feature in future years.

I gave it a 9 based on what I knew it to be when I bought it and my experience thus far. It didn't make 10 for me due to:

- gas mileage could be better
- wish it had a tad more space (for more gear on long trips)
- no panoramic roof
- no 360 degree camera view

My view is that no car is perfect, so 9 is probably the highest score I would give for any car.

I gave it a 9 and really like the PP a lot and wouldn’t change much, but really wish it had a 360 degree camera and wish it had a few more choices on tires and sizes (next years model ?) but not a huge deal for me. Agree as above, don’t think I would ever rate a vehicle a 10 ?. Honda, if you are listening, 360 degree camera ?

I gave the Passport a 10 because, it fits my old school personality. Naturally aspirated V6, transmission gears . It is black and menacing looking, if it had white doors could be mistaken as a cop car. Very comfortable, quiet, plenty of room and OK gas mileage. It is the perfect retirement car for me and my wife.

8, have owned 14 Honda’s, currently own 4.

Love roominess, open road ride, quiet cabin, LED lighting.

Did not rate a 10 because the front seat arm rests are lame, c’mon Honda, give us an appropriate center console arm rest like every other Mfr.

Thats it, big penalty for such a basic feature gap.

When I owned a 2017 Ridgeline some owners complained on that forum about the small armrests. I never understood the problem with the armrest size. For me, they're fine. Any larger and it would be more difficult to engage the seat belt without lifting the armrest. To each his own I guess, but I like the armrests just as they are.

You could fold them up and consider they don't exist.
I recommend trying to get a custom sheepskin cover that would fit over it, if you wanted it wider, you could put some padding in the sheepskin!

Agree on 2 of yours. Added two for me.

I give it a 9. Definitely needs a 360° camera. Not much to really complain about.

2/2021 Update - I’d drop it to an 8 is due to poor ACC, failed auto high beam and occasionally clunky transmission.

The armrests are " . . . all weak and worthless . . . " I believe that's a line from one of my fave movies "Animal House". The complete quote is "Your all weak and worthless, now drop and give me 20!" Just thought I'd throw that in.

I voted an 8. I was hoping the handling would be a little more nimble than it is and the heaviness of my arm flattens the padding on the armrest after a few miles. In my rural setting, I have averaged 24 MPG over the first 5,000 miles of driving - my HR-V averages 31.

I love so many things about the Elite: quiet, fast, great sound system, ample room for me and 3 or 4 adults, the heating/cooling controls for the passengers, wonderful exhaust note when accelerating which then appropriately goes away when cruising.

Truth be told, as much as I love the engine, I would give it up in a heartbeat if a hybrid was offered as an alternative.
