Little, if any changes probably. Since these are late release, I doubt anything at all.

Agreed. If Honda does anything, it might be tinkering with identified computer and, infotainment issues and the like. I doubt any new major components. Ken

Clearly OP is new to Honda vehicles. We will not even see the slightest refresh for the second year of production on the PP.

Like I said in another thread, I would be satisfied with a off-road tire & wheel option, that should be an easy addition, are you listening Honda?

While I won’t be selling my 2019 for a new one, I think Honda needs to refine their electronics. For example, today I drove my F-150. What a nice ride. The ACC works perfectly. When I come up on a vehicle going 10 under, the truck doesn’t suddenly Hit the binders to match speed, it anticipates and smoothly transitions to the slower speed. All the unnoticed until you look at the speedometer.

Also the Bluetooth never drops the handshake with my iPhone X like my Passport does frequently.

The Passport is a nice SUV that is in need of refinement.

I have always had Fords and do feel they are more refined vehicles. HOWEVER, Honda packages are simple and well built.

The sport package has everything I want: black rims, white exterior with black elements to stick out and look sporty, black interior seats (can be cloth but must be BLACK), the big infotainment screen that is well built with Apple carplay, LED headlights not halogen and last but not least, a SUNROOF!

If I get a chevy or a Ford at the lowest trim I get none of these options. Well done Honda!

Try getting all these in a comparable Chevy blazer and let me know how much we are at.

If you are going to compare a ford and honda, IMO wait until they have some age and miles.... That is where the honda really shines, (In my experience)

That’s not my point. That’s why I bought the Passport over the Ford Edge. My point was rather an observation concerning the lack of refinement in the Passport. I wasn’t aware of some of these tech disappointments until I was an owner. That’s why we’re here.

I also like the Forscan ability in the Ford that is unavailable in a Honda.

Perhaps some of the rough edges can be addresses in a software/firmware update at some point in the future.

Agreed.

We purchased ours in April; we have already had the "No Audio Connection" problem several times and the car only has 1,600 miles on it.

From my online research, this has been a problem dating back to the 2016 Pilot and Odyssey. Unacceptable that they still can't get it right 3 years later. I haven't brought our Passport to the dealership because from what I've researched there still is no fix for it, other than pulling and resetting a relay and hoping it doesn't happen again.

I found that adjusting the distance from three vehicles to one makes a much smoother transition.
