  1. Is there a way to visually inspect the timing belt without going through the complete steps of replacement?

    1G Under The Hood / Performance
    As along with my previous posts regarding my new Ridgeline, I have done a full round of fluid servicing/testing on the truck after taking possession as a second owner. The truck is 2009 and based on mileage (97k km, 60k miles) the timing belt does not need to be changed yet. However it still...
  2. Service upsells

    Miscellaneous/General Honda Ridgeline Discussions
    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...

    Miscellaneous/General Honda Ridgeline Discussions
    Brought my Ridgeline in for A1 service and NYS inspection the other day. Made an appointment online the day before for 10:00 AM. The morning of 10/08/2015, I headed out on my way to the dealership stopping at a hand car wash first. Towel dried my Ridgeline and drove to Middletown (NY) Honda...

  6. Did my first service at the dealer today - Not impressed

    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...
  7. Timing belt

    1G Problems & Issues
    Had to have timing belt replaced. Called by dealer and told I had to get additional timing belt tensioner that was not included in the "package". Seems like the tensioner should have been part of the "package". Also paid for oil change and after reading about it I think that is part of the...
  8. Calling all Minnesota Ridgeliners!!!

    1G Problems & Issues
    Hi Everyone, I have a 06' RL that is pushing 130k and from the research I have done sounds like it could use a valve adjustment and maybe new plugs. My last service I had brought it in to Inver Grove Honda, but based upon the experience will not be going back. I'm a firm believer in supporting...
  9. Honda Dealers in Ottawa for Service

    Central Canada Owners
    I'm a new Ridgeline owner but bought used so not tied to any particular dealer. Does anyone have experience (good or bad) with dealers in Ottawa for service? When it comes time to get something done I'd like to know where to go, and more importantly, who to avoid!
  10. Huge drop in fuel economy after 60k service

    Fuel Economy and Gas Related Discussion
    I recently had my '06 RTS go through its 60K service. The service included transmission and coolant flushes, oil and filter change, new air filter, and fuel treatment. During the service it was also discovered that oil was leaking into one of the spark plug wells. Honda replaced the gasket under...
  11. My first experience at a honda dealership. Result. Poor

    Dear Honda: (Feedback Forum)
    I went to honda today to have them help me figure out why I am getting such bad gas mileage on my 07 RTS. I get on average 13mpg and I mostly drive freeway. I scheduled an appointment at the dealership in Lynnwood Washington. I got there and they told me they could not find my appointment. So...
  12. Excel RL Maintenance Log

    Miscellaneous/General Honda Ridgeline Discussions
    Just had my first oil change. I like keeping a Maintenance Log for my vehicles so I can look back and see when I did certain things. For example, How old is that battery and what was the warranty, etc? I made an MS Excel spreadsheet to document the maintenance history. Also added part...
  13. Dealership Service - Should I worry about...?

    1G Problems & Issues
    My 09 Ridgeline is in for it's first "b" service. The code that came up was "B 16" and when I called the Service Adviser asked if it was a 4 wheel drive Ridgeline... I said, "It's a 2009 Ridgeline" and she said " Not all Ridgelines are 4 wheel drive." I wanted to hang up. This Dealer uses...

  15. Excellent Service on Cracked Windshield

    Dear Honda: (Feedback Forum)
    All, I just want to compliment American Honda Corporation and Chezik Bell Honda in Iowa City for living up to Honda's excellent reputation for service. Earlier this week, less than a month after I purchased my 07 RTS, a crack formed on the windshield and quickly spread from the very edge of...
