I have a 2019 Ford Ranger 5,000 miles on it. Love the truck but started looking at the Ridgeline. Most because I wanted a SUV ride with the same capability and a pickup truck. And the Ridgeline .ticks all those boxes. However I've been researching this truck for a few months and I decided that I'm not going to buy one because of the issues I read about here and other places. Common issues. I did not realize Honda was still using the VCM engine as well. My truck is paid for so I really in no hurry there's no advantage to trading in South Carolina because the sales tax is only $500. So I decided that if I get a Ridgeline it will have to be at least I want an out if I need one factor will be. That will come into play as well. We currently have been leasing a CRV for the wife for the past 9 years. If I do get a Ridgeline I want to lease it.have killer lease deals? Not sure what the money factor would be..
