  1. I think it's time to finally buy my 2nd gen

    Second Generation Ridgeline (2G 2017+)
    Looks good - glad you finally did it!
  2. Autoline: "Consumers just aren't responding to the Ridgeline"

    Headlines
    It's not hard to be the winner in a category with only one entry. :) As far as placing it into an existing category, "mid-size pickup" seems to be the most appropriate in terms of dimensions and capability. It really doesn't fit in the "sport utility truck" category which includes the...
  3. DVD player in 2013 RTL

    1G Mobile Electronics
    The device under the seat is the navigation unit. It reads navigation map DVD's, but does not play any media such as audio CD's or DVD movies.
  4. 2020 release date?

    Second Generation Ridgeline (2G 2017+)
    Including the final drive ratio: 1st in 9HP is 20.426:1 1st in H6 is 14.276:1 2nd in 9HP is 12.317:1 The 2018 9HP Pilot started in 1st. The 2019 9HP Pilot started in 2nd. The fuel economy ratings are the same, but there are likely fractional differences that didn't change the rounded whole...
  5. Big changes coming to Apple CarPlay

    2G Audio, Bluetooth, Electronics & Navigation
    CarPlay in iOS 13 addressed a couple of big complaints I had: 1. I never understood why there was no album artwork. Now, it's present. 2. I really disliked how CarPlay would return the home screen when a non-CarPlay app was being used. Now, CarPlay works on its on while the phone can be used...

    Second Generation Ridgeline (2G 2017+)
    Year model production can overlap, so there may be a period where dealers receive both 2019 and 2020 year models. BONUS: GM has been known to continue making old models even after a new one is introduced. The 6h generation Malibu appeared for the 2004 model year while the 5th generation...
  7. TSB 17-025 and 17-026 Judder from the Torque Converter Lock-Up Clutch

    2G Problems, Fixes & TSB's
    The auxiliary transmission transmission cooler on the Ridgeline is a tube and fin design.
  8. 2020 release date?

    Second Generation Ridgeline (2G 2017+)
    Oh, It's not subtle - I assure you. :) You'll also see the tachometer go to zero. Dozens of conditions have to be met for the idle stop feature to stop the engine - the battery has to be fully charged, the cabin temperature has to be within a certain range, the powertrain has to be at operating...
  9. Rear Door Modification to increase opening

    Second Generation Ridgeline (2G 2017+)
    You can mark that one off your list since dual horns were added for 2019. ;)
  10. OEM heated mirrors

    2G Accessories, Performance Parts & Modifications
    I'll assume you have an RT, Sport, FWD RTL, or FWD RTL-T since the other trims come with heated mirrors. Unfortunately, there is no wiring or connectors for the heated mirrors on trims not originally equipped with heated side mirrors. The heated side mirrors are powered by the power window...
  11. TSB 17-025 and 17-026 Judder from the Torque Converter Lock-Up Clutch

    2G Problems, Fixes & TSB's
    If it has AWD, it's already got an auxiliary transmission cooler, but you can add a larger or additional one.

  13. washer fluid pump with no check-valve

    2G Problems, Fixes & TSB's
    Mine squirt on the first pull, too! (2017 and 2019 RTL-E's) I rarely squirt - I probably use 1-2 bottles of fluid every year, if that.
  14. I think it's time to finally buy my 2nd gen

    Second Generation Ridgeline (2G 2017+)
    Keep in mind that every function of Honda Sensing can either not be used or turned off. You will, however, have an amber CMBS light on if you turn that function off. For 2019, it stays off when you turn it off. For 2020, it will probably default back to "on" each time the engine in started like...

    And the unibody MB GL450 is rated to tow 7,500 lbs.
  16. CHMSL (third brake light) flasher

    Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards require all stop lamps (including the high mounted stop lamp) to be steady burning - not blinking, flashing, or strobing. https://www.govinfo.gov/content/pkg/CFR-2018-title49-vol6/xml/CFR-2018-title49-vol6-sec571-108.xml Moderator's note: Threads merged.

    Probably not. The Pilot has the same tow ratings with both the 6-speed and 9-speed automatics. The Pilot achieves the same highway fuel economy rating with both the 6-speed and 9-speed. The city rating is 1 MPG higher with the 9-speed, but that could be partially due to the idle stop feature.
  18. Volo Chip

    Fuel Economy and Gas Related Discussion
    You might want to let Honda's engineers know about this amazing find - if it could save even 0.1 MPG without negative affects on longevity and emissions, you'd probably get your portrait hung in the halls of Honda's corporate headquarters.
  19. 300 miles and then it DIED!

    2G Problems, Fixes & TSB's
    I see they replaced both the fuel pump and the wiring harness that connects to the fuel pump. The chances of both components failing concurrently is nearly zero unless the connection between the fuel pump and wiring harness overheated damaging both components. The most likely cause of that mode...

    An SUV with a utility trailer can certainly be a great alternative to a pickup!
