2022 Honda Passport Electrical System Problems

With the modern SUV, the electronics must be not only current and up-to-date but also functional. Otherwise, the entire family is going to hate the ride ahead, as seen by recent complaints.

One Edmunds review points out, “Dashboard goes blank from time to time.”

Honda has decided to remain quiet about the problems with the electrical system. However, the silence doesn’t mean the problems have gone away. It only means that customers continue to get more frustrated as time goes on. Plus, it wasn’t that long ago that Honda had to pay out a class-action lawsuit on older models with defective infotainment systems, so not much has changed recently. In reality, Honda provides “versatility nowhere,” unless the systems decide to work for a minute.

2022 Honda Passport Powertrain Problems

Despite how important the powertrain is, Honda hasn’t taken the time to ensure integrity with the system. Instead, this is another vital part causing trouble.

Read what this Edmunds review has to say. “The transmission sometimes shifts hard, not smooth.”

Again, Honda is mum on the problems. Even though this is a major component that makes or breaks the SUV, the automaker remains silent. Surely, the company won’t be as quiet when talking about how great the Passport is. Instead, the automaker will be shouting from the rooftops about how great it is, even though customer reviews tell a different story. For now, anyone looking for true “versatility” has to look elsewhere. The Passport isn’t the ticket to smooth-driving enjoyment for today’s busy families.

I was rear-ended by a car going 60-70 mph, and no airbags went off causing me and my passenger to take all the impact, and have a hurt back following the incident.
DateJan 24, 2023
The engine idle at stop function is not operating properly. The on/off switch only works some of the time, so I cannot control the function. It seems to turn off and on at random. When in stop and go traffic for any length of time where I need to edge forward every moment or so, the car is hesitating while the engine re-starts. I get honked at and am worried I'll get bumped from behind while waiting for the engine to turn on and be responsive. I cannot get the function to turn off when I need it to for my sense of safety.
