  1. Honda Roadside Assistance can kiss my .......

    Second Generation Ridgeline (2G 2017+)
    Exactly. That's how I see it with this. I have AAA as my primary. Anything else is gravy and a backup. And, you make a good point...if you are in a remote area, it WILL take awhile to get someone there and you won't be picky who it is :) AAA, and any service, is dependent on location...
  2. HELP, I Cracked Daytime/Parking Light!

    Second Generation Ridgeline (2G 2017+)
    People do as they want. For me, anything that can involve comfort, can wait. Anything that involves safety, to myself, my passengers, or others on the roads with me, cannot wait and I handle those items as expediently as possible. If the glass is cracked and elements can get in and take the...

    I haven't been on the site for months, but it appears this thread is still going and no one has answered you. I'll give you what I know to the best of my knowledge. The answer is: It depends. Yes, some local shops will contract with multiple sources, so you can have the same person/shop be...
  4. HELP, I Cracked Daytime/Parking Light!

    Second Generation Ridgeline (2G 2017+)
    Agreed, but you know how dealerships are. Price of item would get their customary markup. So, let's say dealership called it a $100 item. Then, they have labor. They go by their little book. That may say it is a 2 hour or so jobbie. My local dealership has a sign up saying their hourly is...
  5. Gas Filler Neck (LOCKED/FROZEN) Water Inside

    2G Problems, Fixes & TSB's
    Went in for first oil change today and, when I called to schedule, I asked to have this done. Was told it could be done with the oil change. Went in today and the oil change is part of the express service. 1st guy hadn't heard of this issue (I took in the TSB 1st page printed out so I had the...

    Which facebook group?
  7. Honda Sensing on the 2019 RL

    Shoppin' and Test Drivin'
    I'll add my 2c in here... I went from a 2001 4Runner to "sometimes" driving the wife's 2014 Highlander with everything on it. The Toyota features were nice, but not perfect, but they worked better than nothing. I was looking for a truck with certain criteria (no huge issues, new, and would...
  8. Charging a phone--engine off?

    2G Audio, Bluetooth, Electronics & Navigation
    I have used them for a few years now, in the truck, and haven't had an issue. Maybe the extreme heat, for an extended period of time, may cause an issue with how much of a charge it holds in the brick, but I haven't noticed any issues. I keep the one in my vehicle in my cubby, and I am not in...
  9. US Ridgeline now comes with TWO horns for 2019

    Second Generation Ridgeline (2G 2017+)
    Side note....I've been seeing more Fits on the roads lately and they, and their drivers, are just as bad to get behind as the stupid Prius ones. Argh! :surprise:
  10. Charging a phone--engine off?

    2G Audio, Bluetooth, Electronics & Navigation
    I prefer a nice $20-$40 power block for charging my phone. I have one in my cubby in my G2 and one I keep at home/in my backpack in case I need it on the go and won't be in my vehicle (and don't want to take it out of my vehicle). Fast charging with it and it can do 2 phones at once and do up...
  11. Can I tow an Airstream Cloud 23' trailer?

    Racks, Hitches & Towing
    I've got a friend who tows an airstream with his Tesla Model X. If he can do it, a RL should be able to do it. He took it from Seattle to the Midwest, down south, then back again (he got it last summer)
  12. Lost fob!

    Second Generation Ridgeline (2G 2017+)
    Had that happen to our 1998 accord.....best we could figure is it got knocked off the counter into the recycle garbage can :( If you have any open boxes/cans near where you normally place your fob at home, check them before ditching them (found another one in there a few years ago as well.....I...
  13. Rear Door Modification to increase opening

    Second Generation Ridgeline (2G 2017+)
    My guess, a complete guess, is that someone at Honda noticed and was worried that there was an issue that they hadn't heard about and that it may turn into an issue/recall for them. They would want to know, and get ahead of it. They have no way of knowing if the run on parts are from...
  14. Rear Door Modification to increase opening

    Second Generation Ridgeline (2G 2017+)
    LOL.....when we got the 2018 Accord for our son just over a month ago, he started to baby it. He would, and still does, park at the edge of parking lots, away from the door and all the cars. And, without fail, even with a lot of other open spots, someone always decides to park right next to...
  15. Coin holder for G2.

    Second Generation Ridgeline (2G 2017+)
    Ditto. I keep some small things there like: coins, floss containers, gift cards for restaurants, etc.
