How to Activate the Power Tailgate Hands-Free

Even if you’ve got both arms full, this handy new feature lets you open and close your Honda Passport tailgate with maximum ease. With your vehicle's remote close at hand, simply make a kicking motion under the rear of the car, and your tailgate will open. Should you kick to the side, or not use the proper kicking motion, the tailgate will not open. Close the tailgate the very same way–with a kick!
