The 2019 Honda Passport Is Honda's "Rugged" New SUV

Today it is 60 degrees -- or, as the Passport would say, 55 degrees.

While it is not affected as much in cold weather, in hot weather, on-car temp. sensors tend to record higher temp than what the actual ambient outside temp is, usually by 4 or 5 degrees higher. This is true with most all car temp. sensors. Check it out next time your car is parked in a scorching parking lot.

Eh I dunno about this "review." A lot of the "quirks" are just you not knowing things. Those drive select buttons have been in multiple Hondas already for a while, and identical to Acura one as well. The temperature changing is obviously to calibrate the temperature, not all cars or thermometers say the exact same temp. The green light bar for efficient driving us also in the lowest trim of the civic (again, nothing new).......also that "astronaut" is asimo.....losing faith in ur content, do better...maybe check out straitpipes channel.

The hallmark of every Honda/Acura I have ever owned since 1982.
That's 37 years w/o a single repair bill, not ONE!
Just normal maintenance, oil,tires,brakes and Timing belt/CV boots every 100k.
Sure, this is a niche car, just so happens it fall's directly into my niche.
Buy one used in 2021 for under 20k and it's a home run in my book.

I ha w 2019 pilot and it’s great for family(I refuse to get a minivan lol) I rather get the 4Runner for off-roading
Snow mode make the car take off slower, so you don’t slide your car everywhere.
Sand mode turns off traction control and the torque vectoring is more aggressive and rpm stays higher.

Um you can change the temp like that so you can get a more accurate reading. If you have a more precise thermometer you can calibrate the one on the car to match. What's so confusing about that? I guess if Doug doesn't understand something it MUST be a weird quark.

Doug is the funniest car reviewer of all time. he makes car reviews more entertaining and fun to watch

For the oil life “A” is part of the Maintenance Codes Minder. A = simple oil change service at the next service interval. If the Honda had more miles it might show B which would be additional maintenance items at next oil change (typically inspections of brakes or other systems) and numbers. In new Honda infotainment systems you can see them all for the specific car and reset them once performed.

Doug needs to do more research on the cars he "reviews" BEFORE doing videos on them, as he says "I guess" too much instead of knowing.
Yes, Doug, the "drive modes" on the Passports really DO change the drive-train mapping (as they also do on the Pilot, like my 2016 EX-L AWD). The programs were developed "on location" as tests/driving data were done in Minnesota (snow mode), Moscow Russia (mud mode) and Dubai (sand mode) -- and "many other locations" Honda says. And they're pretty good (I use sand mode most often out here in West Texas desert). Since the Pilot and Passport share these modes -- and the outstanding iVTM4 AWD system as well -- BOTH cars are VERY good doing mild "off-roading" but are also very good in inclement weather (snow/rain).

I really HATE those gear selector buttons. A deal breaker for me.
bigbangnone - 14 days ago
It is JUST IGNORANT to place the critical shifting buttons right next to the sloshing drinks.....only a few car designers have the skills to prevent this situation. Honda designers did a fair job with the CRV. Personally, I would like two locations at the same time.
1) steering wheel
2) Front of the right hand arm rest.

This is EXACTLY the 2nd gen mdx, minus the 3rd row. I paid 25k for my mdx. Why would anyone pay 40k for this? But I do like that there's an option for me to consider with the same body as my 2008.
Eva Maynard
Eva Maynard - 14 days ago
The temp display on my mdx is routinely a few degrees higher than the actual temp outside. If the ac/heat is linked to that gauge, being able to adjust it makes some sense. They could just make the car read the temp correctly, but what do I know. I just drive.
Eva Maynard
Eva Maynard - 14 days ago
It looks exactly like my 2008 mdx. Is this their way of reimagining the 2nd gen mdx, which many people like better than the 3rd gen?

ECON mode on Honda dampens throttle input for efficiency. You'd think a dedicated car reviewer would know something about a Honda.
Rainbow - 15 days ago
Wow Doug is a legitimate moron. The temperature adjustment is to calibrate the thermometer, just like zeroing a scale. Absolute moron holy fuckaroni.

I’m not sure why I continued watching this “review” when obviously Doug has not bothered to do the research necessary to answer the questions that he was stumped on. Why do you think I bothered to watch your review??? Next time do your homework!

Maybe the temperature adjust is for, like say, if your phone shows a different outside temp than your car does, this allows them to show the same?

The letters under the oil life indicate which maintenance cycle it’s on. I don’t know what specific letters mean, but it can be looked up in the owner’s manual. Maybe A is oil change, and be is oil change and tire rotation. Such things

For those of you who are curious about the green light on/off in indicator, it refers to using battery to run the car. Its due to the specific fuel consumption. On low rpm sfcm is high so more fuel js required for this reason at low rpm battery is used but when the car reaches high rpm its wise to use engine for optimum efficiency

Ok Doug! So many YouTubers journalists complain when Honda/Acura introduce new technology, but when others copy but improve... everyone hail praises.... example more manufacturers are putting in double display that Honda introduce 10 years ago, or versatile tailgate, and so many others?!

This review's just OK.

I've seen other Doug DeMuro reviews.

The Honda Passport is what it is. Just a Pilot w/o the 3rd row seats.

For me, for other people who doesn't need the 3rd row seats, this would be a great fit.
Tons of storage, room for a few passengers only, V6 engine, more than adequate towing capacity, etc.

I'll wait for the next iteration of it.

The Ridgeline may be something to consider instead.

A better comparison would be the Subaru Outback, empty nesters maybe with dogs :) The Subie is a super capable All-Terrain vehicle but definitely not a 4x4 Off-Roader. Honda understands where the market is going, just look at the new Rav4

Outside temp reflects the AC temp. Outside temp 69 and you want AC 65 your AC will be not as cold, oppose to outside temp 77 and you want 65, the AC air is much colder. Vice versa with heat.
So if you manipulate the outside temp you can get colder AC and hotter heat.
josephboot1 - Month ago
The temperature adjustment might be for matching the actual temperature outside with what the vehicle is reading. I've been in many vehicles that read a certain temperature but was off by a few degrees compared to what the local weather networks said it was.

The ‘adjust temp’ is something every car (that tells you the outside temp) should have because, as I’ve found over the years, they are usually off by a few degrees. My current car is always about 3-degrees low so I wish I could adjust it up by 3, but I can’t. So, while you may be baffled why they have this option, it makes complete sense.
tnurse50 - Month ago
Regarding the ability to change the outside temperature. My guess would be that it is there so that you can adjust to take Wind Chill Factor into account. Maybe not something that you would need in California but critical here in Northern Canada.
