    Howdy all! Proud owner of a 2019 Ridgeline I got in December last year. Really appreciate all the info I've been able to find on the forums. Led me to purchasing the value excellent Trident tonneau cover. Wondering if anyone else has had these issues. Was detailing my car and found rust on...
  2. Is This Rust?

    2G Problems, Fixes & TSB's
    I detailed my truck tonight and noticed what seemed to be rust under the rubber seal on my passenger rear door. I was able to wipe most of it away before taking the picture. It might be hard to tell in the pictures but there is still a line of what seems to be rust and I can't take it off. Is...
  3. Insane abnormal rusting

    1G Problems & Issues
    So one day I looked at the side of my truck and was shocked to see some bubbling between the rear passenger doors and wheels in the same spot on both sides of the vehicle. Brought it into the Honda dealership who said the Diamond Kote DK9000 module died. I was so concerned I got a body shop to...

  5. Rusted Strut Assembly

    1G Problems & Issues
    A few weeks ago, I started to hear a thunk coming from the front end when making tight left turns and backing up in the driveway. Yesterday I took it to the local tire place for a diagnosis. The technician was sitting in the drivers seat, turned the wheel all the way to the left, and said...
  6. Concerned about salt damage

    Shoppin' and Test Drivin'
    Should I be concerned about buying a used RL from a state where they use salt on the roads? I'm in Colorado so its not an issue here, but have heard it can cause some serious rust elsewhere. I'm looking at an '09 or '10 so it won't be very old but I'm still a bit worried about this issue...

  8. Rust proofing recommendations

    1G Exterior
    Hi, My mechanic is recommending rust proofing to protect my new RL! I am confused cuz I know that usually rust proofing is just a scam. Has anyone here done this on their RL and is it worth the money we are up here in Canada and we get a lot of snow/salt you name it, just perfect for...
  9. Rust under front seats, no known leaks though

    1G Problems & Issues
    I did do some searching before posting this. Of course, if there is a thread on point, pls direct me to that. I have seen a couple threads on exterior rust, and the very long thread regarding potential water-in-the-cab issues. We had a heck of a storm last night, but I did not notice any...
