Hey all!

My name is Andrew and I am the proud owner of a 2006 Ridgeline. I live in Southern Louisiana. This is the only vehicle I have ever owned where I fully intend to get another one when it dies one day. I bought it used in 2010 with 79k miles for $14k. It will be paid off in 6 months!!! yeah!! I have 190K on it now and would LOVE to get another 100K miles.

I just want to say this website has been AWESOME! It has saved me hundreds if not thousands of dollars. I always did my own oil changes but now I can do tranny fluid, diff fluid, transfer case, spark plugs, brakes and who knows what else the future holds. This community is great and very knowledgeable.

The only issues I've had that I didn't do myself was the power steering pump went out. Just bought one on Ebay and paid a local shop $75 to change it out. I even had the dreaded water leak on the passenger side and was able to drill it out and fix.

In short, just wanted to show my appreciation for all of you that contribute to this place. Also, any suggestions on what to do to my truck to make sure I make it to 300K? My timing belt made it to 150K before I changed it so I should be good in that department for now.

THANKS ALL!!

Good to hear that the RL suits you, and the ROC has been helpful!

Sounds like you are pretty handy with DIY maintenance/repairs, please consider documenting your projects and sharing your experiences with the ROC community.

How's your radiator holding up. Check out these threads, some of the worst external corrosion occurs in the Northeast, where salt is used on the roads in the winter.

All the following threads are on Transmission/Radiator issues.

Happy Reading & Good luck
