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..

Is that some kind of cooler visible in the Ranger’s lower grill opening?

The deal on the Honda websites around here (upstate NY) is 428/month with 999 down for an E. I agree with your logic about leasing a Honda right now.

Finally, a garage as jam packed as mine! Good call on leasing an RL, if you can get a good deal.

Post on the Edmunds forum to get the residual and money factor for the lease you want. I just got my RTL-E 12k/36month with 67% residual and 0.00225 money factor. Dealer did try to pull one over me with 0.00375 money factor. $438+taxes monthly with no money down.

My dealer sent me the money factor because that's all I was interested in with the lease. I can figure out payments and cost but I needed the interest rate. He quoted me .00225 which is nearly 6% interest. I told them in this low-interest environment and my tier one credit 6% was waaaaaay too high. It is what it is ...I don't pay 6% interest on anything.
