My 2017 I picked up in August 2016 (as a 17 model). I've only had 2 minor issues and those were covered under warranty. The first ended up being a recall of the tail gate release mechanism. The 2nd my drivers seat side compressed/failed and was replaced with a new one. I'm a big guy, but I never had this issue with my 07 over 9½ years. But this is the power seat and I don't know if the side seat support is thinner because of that. At 3 years and 2 months, the same seat issue is back and I'm sort of working around it.I'm responding to a comment that's almost 3 years old....but if you're tuned-in just wondering how the 2017 Ridgeline has been so far. I also have a 2007 and am considering buying a 2019.
But otherwise the truck has been great. It tows my camper great, around town fuel economy is between 20 and 21 mpg regularly. That's real mpg not Honda mpg. A 1700 mile trip I did in May and got 29 real mpg on the highway. Which was fabulous.
It's been awesome in the snow. SO much better than my 07 ever was and that's not even in snow mode. Ride, comfort, convenience, looks, usability are excellent. I get so many compliments on the new looks from so many people. I'm so glad I'm not driving another block of wood truck down the road too.
I'm very happy with it and looking forward to playing in the snow when it arrives!
