2020 Honda Passport EX-L; 2019 Honda Civic Sedan Si; 2013 Honda Civic LX
Not sure how you go from liking my post to accusing me of being a bully? I already explained that drive ability, safety and entertainment features are legit and should be corrected. If I list the bs complaints verbatim then I am calling people out and bullying. I don’t lease vehicles.What are you considering petty complaints on a $40k vehicle? Honda safety features not working, inadvertent brake alerting, infotainment system and dash crapping out, simple features like a charging pad not working, auto high beams not working, auto wipers that are inconsistent, etc, etc?? All features that we’ve paid for, and some of us paying for the Elite for the extra features that don’t work? Are these what you consider to be petty issues?
This is my 7th Honda, and I’ve never had such problems. Honda WAS well known for only using tried and true technology, until the last 2-3 years. It’s pretty pathetic that they are trying to ignore these issues. My cheaper 2018 Rav4 XLE with Toyota Safety Sense works flawlessly. Their radio sucks, but at least it works.
So why should we have to take a hit in trading in our Passports when Honda should be fixing these issues?? It’s a nice SUV, and rides well, but there are definitely things that have to be fixed. I took the JD Powers survey and listed all of the problems. I encourage others to do the same. Maybe Honda will wake up and change.
I didn’t buy a new vehicle to be aggravated by a half assed implementation of safety and other features. I drove my last Honda (Pilot) for 15 years until April when I bought my 2020 Passport Elite. Never had problems with my Pilot. Did routine maintenance and it lasted me 268,000 miles or so, and sold it to a young kid who will get many more miles out of it.
So please differentiate between what you call petty and legitimate complaints? Did you lease your vehicle for a few years, or did you buy it to keep for a long time? The reason I ask is that those who lease tend to have the attitude that they just have to put up with the issues and then dump the vehicle at lease end for something else. That’s much different than those, like myself, who purchased it with the intent on keeping it for 10+ years.
Are you expecting everyone on this forum to be a Passport cheerleader like the owners of crappy Jeeps? Jeep diehards ignore the many problems and attack those who criticize the Jeep’s major shortcomings.
A forum is a place to share ideas and experiences, whether good or bad, so that current and future owners can be well informed. It is not a place to dismiss the valid concerns and issues of other members. It’s also not a place to judge a problem as petty or legitimate. It’s the owner’s decision to make that judgement based on his or her own situation.
So, if you don’t appreciate the honest exchange of information of all members, and can’t refrain from bullying others, then maybe you came to the wrong place. Food for thought....
