  1. Potential Ridgeline buyer

    Second Generation Ridgeline (2G 2017+)
    If you drive as conservatively as you say, you can see 28-30 MPG on the highway. I've done that with my AWD RL on I-10 in Texas. Dropping from 75 to 65 makes a dramatic difference in mileage (unsurprisingly). I've gotten 20k miles on mine in 21 months, and I've been extremely pleased with its...
  2. Cracked Windshield

    Second Generation Ridgeline (2G 2017+)
    For anyone reading this and contemplating a Ridgeline purchase, you should look at the trim level and see if you really need to get one of the higher trims in view of the higher costs that go with things like LKAS. I take a lot of long road trips, and the ACC and LKAS are worth the extra cost...
  3. Cracked Windshield

    Second Generation Ridgeline (2G 2017+)
    It tends to work. Not always, but the fear of a cop slows them down to the posted speed limit. I haven't cracked my windshield since, though.
  4. Cracked Windshield

    Second Generation Ridgeline (2G 2017+)
    I did the same thing to my RTL-E 1-1/2 year ago. You will need to get the Pilkington windshield (OE). I would take it to a clean shop. For the cost and aggravation, you don't want to deal with contaminants that could be blowing around outside. Don't do it in your driveway. After the...
  5. Tesla CyberTruck

    Other Cars, Trucks and Bikes
    The visibility out of that thing must be terrible, like the visibility out of a Camaro. We'll have to see how it performs, I suppose, but that design is way too out of the norm for my tastes. TBH, that kept me generally away from the Gen I, which has since grown on me a bit.
  6. Ridgeline vs 1/2 ton

    What's the problem? You got a front seat :D
  7. Cold Mornings - time for the heated steering wheel

    2G Interior
    The heated steering wheel is one of those features you scoff at until you use it, and it transforms from luxury to necessity.
  8. Ridgeline vs 1/2 ton

    Other Cars, Trucks and Bikes
    The Ridgeline will work for you. I would just caution you if you plan on keeping it for a long time to study the trim levels and get the one that will suit you best. I have the RTL-E, and I love using the gadgets, but more complexity = more risk of failure. Also, a feature like a moonroof can...
  9. Is the Ridgeline a "truck"?

    Second Generation Ridgeline (2G 2017+)
    This whole controversy seems so weird. Why would anyone be so emotionally invested in denying the Ridgeline the status of a truck? I don't even feel like it's worth arguing about. It's more interesting trying figure out the psychology of these a point. It's like a lot of people...
  10. Splash guards

    Second Generation Ridgeline (2G 2017+)
    I got them and side mouldings and door edging. They've all been worth the money, IMO.
  11. Interior, for active Family Ridgeline vs Town&Country AWD

    1G Interior
    No, they are not. Honda does now sell a lockable handle, though, so if you get a G2, you can have that installed. I would price it out, too. Don't buy it or the tonneau at purchase without a lot of haggling, as you'll get gouged. If back door access becomes a problem later, you can also...
  12. Upgrades for 2019 Honda Ridgeline Sport AWD

    2G Audio, Bluetooth, Electronics & Navigation
    I got the tailgate lock from Honda, and it's worked very well for nearly four month's now. With a bed cover, it will expand your secured cargo space enormously. Even if you don't get a bedcover, you may want it to keep people from messing with your tailgate and to ease selling it to another...

    Whoops, you're right. Nvmd.
  14. Interior, for active Family Ridgeline vs Town&Country AWD

    1G Interior
    I use my Ridgeline for exactly the same purpose you're describing. I drove from Houston to San Diego with my familly up I-40, and back through I-10, with lots of detour through mountain roads. The truck was exceedingly comfortable for long hauls, and it held the road beautifully through wet and...
  15. Considered a Ridgeline, but purchased a Ranger

    Greetings & Introductions
    One thing that I think was unforgiveable on Ford's part was not giving the Ranger's backseat a 60/40 split, which was standard on my 2008 Frontier.
