  3. Garmin Map Update Fail - MAJOR REPAIR

    2G Audio, Bluetooth, Electronics & Navigation
    Went to update my map using the standard process. Each time, after download through Garmin Express there was a failure to load by the unit in the truck. So the truck was initially writing the information correctly to the memory stick, but once information was on the memory stick and plugged back...
  4. Horn alarm goes off unexpectly

    2G Problems, Fixes & TSB's
    Re: Horn alarm REPAIRED Had the same problem. Problem was intermittent and I was out of town so friend had towed to dealer. Dealer kept for several days and did not notice the problem (intermittent) until I was about to pick up the truck five days later. They called to tell me the alarm had...
  5. 2018: 1st oil change, almost no oil!

    2G Problems, Fixes & TSB's
    There are 33,000+ miles on my G2. I've had no oil loss to speak of during that time. I check it very occasionally. I agree with others that checking the oil regularly is a good practice. The Honda manual says you should do it at every gas fill-up I believe (yeah right). Realistically, very few...
  6. Consumer Reports Reliability Rankings

    Headlines
    There is little point in complaining about or trying to trash CR ratings. They survey owners and report their responses. Since they survey all owners of all vehicles using the same methodology, the relative reliability (and other ratings) are directly comparable. Since CR takes no advertising...
  7. What Did You Pay?

    Shoppin' and Test Drivin'
    OK. Would you mind sharing the name of the dealer? Others could certainly benefit by your experience if this dealer is willing to sell at invoice based on a simple phone call.
  8. What Did You Pay?

    Shoppin' and Test Drivin'
    In your earlier post, you said it went like this (quoting your post below). Sorry, but I'm not buying your brag. ===== In my RL buying experience... Me: "Hi, I'm calling in regard to the white RTL-T Ridgeline you have. I'll be up in 15 min. to buy it if I can have it at invoice" Salesman...
  9. What Did You Pay?

    Shoppin' and Test Drivin'
    Maybe. Until someone shows that it's possible, we won't know. You have made some fairly bold claims here, but the reality is that the ad suggests that for one dealer, the RTL-T (which you bought) is being heavily discounted, whereas the RTL-E is not...
  10. What Did You Pay?

    Shoppin' and Test Drivin'
    That gives an idea of why there are better deals available (e.g. invoice pricing) on the lower trim levels. Seems like the RTL-E is still in high demand (per this dealer's pricing), but that there are great deals on lower trim levels.
  11. What Did You Pay?

    Shoppin' and Test Drivin'
    I suppose part of this is an issue of the relative desirability of the RTL-T (which it appears you bought), especially in your area. I agree with the general approach that making a firm, take it or leave it cash offer is a useful bargaining tool and can avoid messy negotiations, but as you've...
  12. What Did You Pay?

    Shoppin' and Test Drivin'
    As Edmunds notes in the following article, "When cars are new in the marketplace, such as the Mini Clubman, they often command over-sticker prices." There are plenty of historical examples of this. You can insist on paying no more than sticker price, but then someone else may get it instead of...
  13. What Did You Pay?

    Shoppin' and Test Drivin'
    I noted that another poster argued that this was $500 too much. I don't know what RTL-E's are selling for in your area right now, but like all new vehicles (and for that matter homes), the real value is a function of what people are willing to pay for it at the time you buy. It may very well...
  14. What do you LOVE about your RL?

    Second Generation Ridgeline (2G 2017+)
    The safety features (all of them). The ride. The acceleration. The handling. The comfort. The gas mileage. The range. The look (although I miss the look of my G1). The automatic headlights and high/low beams. The adaptive cruise control. The proximity locking and unlocking system. The navigation...
  15. Excessive wind noise with both rear windows down

    2G Problems, Fixes & TSB's
    Had a similar issue with my G1, but the G2 is definitely more susceptible. As others have commented, opening the back window or cracking the front windows usually stops it. I have 17,000+ miles in. I've found the problem to be quite variable, apparently related to cross-winds. (That's the only...
  16. Dealer Maintenance Contract

    Shoppin' and Test Drivin'
    Re: Dealer maintenance The only dealer add-on worth paying for is nitrogen in the tires. (Kidding.) >:)
  17. Congratulations Early Buyers!

    Second Generation Ridgeline (2G 2017+)
    Thank you! My opinion: My individual experience could be an outlier. For example, while my truck is under recall due to the harness issue, I've had no associated problems, whereas others reporting here have. To me, the beauty of the CR reporting is that in large part it is based on crowd...
  18. Congratulations Early Buyers!

    Second Generation Ridgeline (2G 2017+)
    There's a separate thread for people to report what they paid, where, and on what model below. It seems that discounts vary based on the trim level and I don't know what the typical discount (if any) has been for the T AWD. You may wish to have a look here. Others will appreciate your report on...
  19. Congratulations Early Buyers!

    Second Generation Ridgeline (2G 2017+)
    There were a fair number of naysayers on this forum about buying a G2 when they were first released. It was suggested they would be defective, that Honda’s “name is tarnished and they cannot ride on reputation alone any longer,” that, “the competition is as good or better build quality,” and...
  20. 2G - CR 10 Best List

    Reviews
    In this same issue, CR explained why they believe their car testing process is unique (and superior). It's a good read for those of us who occasionally read car reviews in the media where a reviewer typically gets a tricked out loaner from the car manufacturer and drives it for a week, then...
