One can easily name a vehicle part that protects various other vehicle parts. One can also easily name a part that aids in the performance of the vehicle's engine. But can you name a vehicle part that do both of these functions and still functions as a major styling component for your vehicle's front fascia? That vehicle part, my friend, is the vehicle's grille. Located in the middle of the exterior components array in front of the vehicle, you surely can't miss your vehicle's stylish grille.
The grille refers to the opening at the front of the vehicle that allows air to flow into the engine compartment. One major function of the vehicle's grille is to aid in the performance of the vehicle's engine. By allowing air to flow into the engine compartment, the grille helps the radiator and the rest of the cooling system components in maintaining the proper operating temperature of the engine.
Another function of the vehicle's grille is to protect the various parts installed behind it from damages. Covered with a decorative grating, the vehicle's grille allows air to enter the engine compartment while preventing various harmful elements from doing the same. In particular, the grille protects the radiator from bugs, road debris and other harmful agents. In vehicles with turbocharged engines, the grille also protects the turbo intercooler from the same harmful elements.
Aside from the two previously mentioned functions, the grille also serves as a major design feature for the front end of the vehicle. Many auto manufacturers would even make use of the vehicle's grille as their primary brand identifier.
Like all other vehicle grilles, Honda Passport grilles were designed to carry out its threefold function well. However, the Honda Passport grille can only perform these functions if it is in good condition, that is if it has not yet deteriorated because of time and damages. If these conditions no longer holds true, then it may be the proper time for you to replace them with the various replacement Honda Passport grilles available in the market. Also available are custom Honda Passport grills with billet or body color inserts that can make your SUV look even more stylish.
