I'm a proud owner of a 1st Gen 2014 RTL AWD, with just over 108k miles on it. Bought used with 58k miles, 3 years ago. My employer is moving to a new facility, making my daily commute almost triple. I have the option of moving closer and keeping my current Ridgeline, or staying where I am, and upgrading my Ridgeline to a used 2nd Gen. I have driven the 2nd Gen's when I've gone in for service at the dealer, so only have very small amount of mileage with them. I'm not planning to haul much of anything, and if I do, it would be very small amount. I do want the AWD, preferably the RTL-E. My question is this: is there a better year than another, or are they all good? What I have heard is that the 2nd Gen is a smoother ride than the 1st Gen. The 100 - 120 miles a day commute will be almost all highway miles at 65mph or greater. If I don't buy a 2nd Gen, is there a way to change out or upgrade some items to make the 1st Gen ride better? I maintain the vehicle as it should be, and have brand new tires on it, but it still is not as smooth as I would like it. Any help is appreciated.
