Buying Advice

Hello Guys & Gals. New to the forum. Seems like a very cosy place to hang around

Been a Honda owner for several years, currently with a 07 CR-V(and a CRVOC member).

Thing is that I recently saw the Ridgeline on the internet (not available in Europe) and instantly fell in love with it.

I found 3-4 examples in Germany and I am seriously thinking of selling the CR-V and getting a Ridgeline. Is there a "buying guide" of some sort to read so I can check a few things before taking the plunge and buying it? Should I avoid specific model years? is there a must-have equipment level?

Thanks in advance.

Re: Buying Advice

Search this site, not sure of all of the threads, but there are many.

In my opionion there is nothing wrong with any model year, basically they are all the same, mostly DEPENDABLE.

As far as must have equipment, depends on what you are going to do with it, towing? Then make sure you get the towing package.
The most usefull equipment to me that I don't have would be a backup camera.

Where is Germany are you?
