  1. Shoppin' and Test Drivin'
    I'm in the market for a Gen1, and have mostly written off the few 2014s I've came by as they just seem too expensive for a used car (IMHO). But there is one near me (like 5 miles from my house!) that's been on the dealers lot for 6 weeks, no doubt as they are asking 4-5K more than it is worth...
  2. Second Generation Ridgeline (2G 2017+)
    Wondering what your all’s thoughts are on using a can of fuel additive Sea Foam periodically in a new vehicle to keep carbon buildup to a minimum. I used to run it through my 2008 Civic religiously( 160k mikes). I was wondering if any of you all use it on new engines as a consistent cleaning...

    I just came back from the dealership where they performed scheduled maintenance after I had the message "B 1 6" appear on my display. This set me back ~$180. They also recommended the 15K mile maintenance package, which included a whole laundry list of maintenance and checks that they would...

    Was curious as to what everyone uses to log their maintenance records/history. I started off using the honda booklet, but after I filled it up, I started using this app https://autosist.com/ The app is ok, but makes me pay for more than one vehicle on record. I would like a way to log all of my...

    Hello, I brought my 2013 Ridgeline in for an A1 service yesterday and was given a list of things that I should consider doing, the service it self was about $80, the additional items totaled about $1100.00. I asked for a copy of all recommended service items so I could look into it. I knew that...
  6. First Generation Ridgeline (1G 2006-2014)
    Hi Everyone - New to the Forum. Just purchased an 2007 w/ 94K miles. Looking for suggested preventative maintenance besides the timing belt that I should take to increase my odds of getting another 100K headache free miles out of the truck. Planning to do the timing belt and other maintenance...
  7. Greetings & Introductions
    Hi everyone, Found this forum helpful as I was researching Ridgelines I was considering purchasing. Just purchased an 07 Ridgeline RTX w/ 94K miles for about 14K out the door. Any preventative maintenance I should do as an initial matter before putting any serious milage on it? Dealership...

    So, I need some feedback. I have an 06 Ridgeline I recently purchased. It has 59,000 miles. I bought it with 54,000 miles and shortly after it began making what I would describe as a squeaky grinding noise when I brake. The sound seems to be coming from the rear driver side wheel. I originally...
  9. First Generation Ridgeline (1G 2006-2014)
    I have a 2006 purchased in 2011 with 39000 miles. The previous owner had taken good care of it, serviced at the dealer, and traded for a new one with leather interior. Since then I have put on 3-4k per year (biked to work). Kept up the service, continued with Mobile 1 changed annually, but...
  10. First Generation Ridgeline (1G 2006-2014)
    I have a 2012 Honda Ridgeline Sport and had the rear differential fluid and transmission fluid serviced/replaced at 37,222 miles. I am now seeing a B16 Maintenance Minder Code, which B1 is just rotate tires, but B6 is Replace VTM-4 rear differential fluid. I currently have 44,000 miles which is...

    Hey everyone I have a 2006 RL that just broke 100k miles. Wooo!! The notice for my B4 service due just came up on the computer yesterday. My question is…How long from when this light comes on do I have to get the service done? Is there any way to tell how close I am or a general time frame...

  13. 1G Under The Hood / Performance
    I made it to 8,600+ miles, and finally got the oil life to fall to 10%. So, I made an appointment with the dealer this afternoon to get my first service, and this story really happened... Me: I have a full size spare. Please add it into the rotation. Also could you check the alignment as we...
  14. Shoppin' and Test Drivin'
    Hello Ridgeline owners, I am soon to be the proud owner of a Ridgeline myself...once I sell my current truck that is. I have driven my ford ranger for the last 13 years and it has served me well but its time to move on to a new truck. I have done a lot of research and test drives and the...
  15. Dear Honda: (Feedback Forum)
    The MM threw the "A 1" message the other day, just a touch over 8,000 miles. And Honda had thrown me a set of maintenance coupons for my dealer (I'm guessing maybe a $4-5 discount, but it's something). I owned a 2009 Honda Civic Hybrid for 18 months before the RL, so I had already learned to...
  16. 1G Under The Hood / Performance
    I'm driving cross country from MA to Alaska. My 08 RL has 46000 miles on it has run great. I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations on what to get done to it as far maintenance before my trip.
  17. 1G Under The Hood / Performance
    Pardon if this topic's been covered to death, but I've read through a number of the threads and came away less-than-clear. Purchased our 2006 RL pre-owned with 24,000 miles on it. Today it has about 63k. Probably 70% of the miles we've added have included towing a small travel trailer. No MM-4...
  18. 1G Problems & Issues
    I liked the way the OEM wipers performed. When I had the '07 RL I ordered several set of blade refills from HandA. Today I decided it was time to change the blades on my '09 RL. Knowing I still had the refills, I thought I was in good shape. SURPRISE...they changed the size. On my '07 the...
