Hello all,
I am in the process of buying a 2019 Passport today. I will be trading in my 2017 CRV when my new SUV arrives. The reason I am selling it is the with livening in Minnesota we get very cold weather and this little 1.5t has trouble keeping its heat. In my younger days I would of drove the wheels off of this car regardless to its short comings. I will be retireing soon so I want to be able to enjoy my car no matter what time of season it is..
The CR-V is an awesome car, and I would highly recommend it to anyone. It just isn’t right for me at this age.

It looks promising. For me, it's a bit of a VW look to the front and an Explorer to the rear. Good it isn't powered by a small displacement turbo engine.

Having no heat is not right for anyone at any age. There is no excuse for this vehicle to not have heat. MOST of them do have heat, yours is a defective one. I HAD great heat in mine until Honda did the update to it and now I have little to no heat.

Please, please post up (or PM me) your details on the trade-in and cost of the new Passport, not that I'm looking to get rid of our CR-V, my wife and I really love the car. I'm just very curious, if we were to, what it might cost. I'm sure with the Passport just coming out, the Honda dealers are discounting much. I'm sure there are lots of others on the CRVOC that are not happy with their CR-V due to the heat or OD issue and may want to trade up as well.

We have very good heat in our CR-V, I can totally understand for someone who lives up North that not having heat is a deal breaker and would be willing to change out the vehicle to something new.

Not sure about anyone else, but I've not yet warmed up to the styling on the Passport, I actually still prefer the styling of the CR-V over the Passport. I think it's the blacked out nose and blacked out wheels that just appear to give the Passport sort of an "aftermarket parts" look that just doesn't fit with Honda's typical OEM styling.

I agree. I am not fond of the Passort's looks.

My BIL has an off road vehicle, and he seems to need to have it covered in mud all the time ...to prove his off road capability?

Excellent! Let us know what you think of the Passport. The dealer took back my CR-V in early December and I got a Pilot. Bad oil dilution and a severe lack of heat. If the Passport was out then I would have been all over it. But at that time none of the dealers had a clue when they would be getting them. I was at a Honda dealer last week and just happened to be there when their first one came in. I really liked it, from the back seat forward its almost identical to the Pilot. Same engine, sits taller and has a nice amount of storage. I don't need the 3rd row seats, put them down when I picked up the Pilot and they will stay down until I sell it.

Best of luck with the Pilot!

When you say “Dealer took it back” could you elaborate? I know they will take it back in a trade, to make money on the trade-in and the new Passport. Did they go out of their way? Ie top trade-in value and no profit on Passport (including rollback)?

Lets just say I started my Lemon Law action, paperwork was will underway and it didn't go the end. I was offered a very nice deal. I could have stuck it to Honda since I had all the paperwork and they attempted to correct it 4 times. However it could have taken many months and I did not want to freeze my balls off during the winter.

Um...I thought the CR-V's have an option of either the 2.4 liter 4 cyl. non-turbo engine, or the (dreaded) 1.5 liter turbo. Although, the Touring model does comes standard with the 1.5 turbo, correct? So, instead of going for the Passport, which doesn't get as good gas mileage, why not just get a CR-V EX-L with the 2.4? The normally aspirated (non-turbo) 2.4 liter does not have the oil dilution problem. But, does it have the no heat issue also? I have a 2016 EX, and it uses the same 2.4 liter engine as the 2017 through 2019 CR-Vs, and although it does take the engine longer to fully warm up when temps are below 42 degrees, it still gets some heat even before it fully warms up. I guess I was just curious if you first considered going with a CR-V with the 2.4 non-turbo before making the decision to go with the Passport?
