Question about 2001 Honda Passport
Our 2001 Honda Passport transmission just had to be rebuilt with only 65,000 miles. The shop told us that in that year, Honda actually installed a GM transmission. Now (about 1000 miles later) the rack and pinion is needing to be replaced. We don't drive it hard, and have kept up regular maintenance on the vehicle since we bought it at 15,000 miles (with clean DMV). Why are these things wearing out at such low mileage? We bought a Honda for its long life!
Let's start with some facts. Honda, until 2006, didn't build any "trucks". Your Honda Passport actually began life in the Isuzu Rodeo assembly line. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, just no what you were expecting.
Isuzu makes very reliable trucks, but I think you've just had a run of bad luck. My 95 Isuzu Rodeo was retired after 275,000 miles, but only because some moron rear-ended me very severely, and it wasn't worth repairing, body-wise.
My 5-speed manual needed to be replaced at about 240,000, but the V-6 engine had never been cracked open for any major work. It did, however, have a somewhat loose rack/pinion.
