I just received a deceptively worded letter from an outfit named CarShield regarding my"vehicle service contract."
I am curious how many Ridgeline owners received this BS? I am also curious how these guys got my name, address and fact I purchased a new Ridgeline?

Either your dealer or your states DMV. Trust no one. Or obviously the third party service contract if you have on. No a lot of sources.

I get those all the time from various companies. I just toss them.

Right in the garbage. Never a second thought. On a side note, when I get unsolicited mail such as credit card offers, I fold a page from a magazine or newspaper, put it in the return envelope and mail it back. My contribution to the USPS.

It's also possible that Honda rented your name if you signed up for the owners club. Your insurance company. Your financial services company. The company that printed the full-length owner's manuals. The list is endless. They all put their palms out trying to make more money off you. Most of them offer obscure means of preventing this behavior, but I believe you have to renew your block on third-party list rental every year and it's like a shell game finding that right privacy setting. This is capitalism at work. I'm a believer in the free enterprise system but it has a dark side.

I used to do that also. But now I used a gibberish generator and send a one page letter of crap to them in their envelope.

Here's a pretty good one: Gibberish Generator
Or this one: Random text generator - Get random text for web or typography

BTW, I'm pretty sure sociology majors use these for their thesis papers. :laugh:

Only buy the manufactures factory extended warranty, in other words the Honda one. If you buy a GM product, buy the GM warranty, and so on. I personally never buy them, I drive very few miles per year, my 2008 RL had 50,000 on it when I sold it two week ago.
