Wanting to buy a 94' Honda Passport 4×4 w 150,000 miles. Is $2000 too much?

I am considering buying a 94′ Honda Passport 4×4 with 150,000 miles on it for 00. Is this over-priced? The body & interior are in good condition. I don’t know too much about the engine or if these vehicles are pretty dependable or not. (I am on the road alot) I haven’t heard too many positive things about this vehicle in reviews I have read. Does anyone know the gas mileage this vehicle gets? Any other information will be more than helpful in making my decision. Thanks 🙂

    Historically known for being a crap vehicle.
    It’s an Isuzu Rodeo with a Honda nameplate.
    Honda regrets ever being associated with it.

    You aren’t getting a great deal on it, even if it is in good condition.
    A mechanic can tell you if it is worth buying. You will average around 15 mpg.

    although it is a honda, those vehicles did not get good reviews. With the mileage stated, i say pass on it.

    Its not really a honda. Its an Isuzu with a honda nameplate.

    If its in real good condition, its on OK price. Certainly not dirt cheap.

    I had a 94 about 6 years ago. Not a 4×4. Lower mileage, I think 112k. I think I paid about $1350 at a wholesale auction and sold it for $1950 after driving it for a few months and getting tired of it.

    Mine had a really rough ride that I couldn’t put my finger on. Not sure if they all had that rough of a ride or not.

    Like mentioned, this is an Isuzu that Honda outsourced to get a truck for.

    I think Isuzu got the Honda Odyssey rebadged as the Isuzu Oasis in return.

    That aside, I believe this is when GM parts started infiltrating Isuzu SUVs thanks in no small part to GM owning a healthy bit of Isuzu back then…yeah, that’s your sign to go elsewhere.

    That 3.2L DOHC v6 isn’t exactly a cheap engine to find–they drink a lot of oil–when Isuzu was still making their own vehicles (and not GM rebadges) back in the late 90s.

    It is at the end of its life. Only spend the money if you don’t care if it dies in 5 months. Not much more expensive than renting a car.
