I bought my Ridgeline from a Honda dealership when it was 3 years old with 12,000 miles on it. Now my Ridgeline is 11 years old with only 70,000 miles on it and still drives like a brand new Ridgeline so why buy a new Ridgeline. I'm 62 years old and couldn't be happier with my Honda. I can see this will be my last vehicle.

Too funny. I bought mine new. RTL. Has around 90,000 miles on her. I've kept up on all the services and then some. She's kept in a garage. Drives like new. I'll be 66 this year. I quess I'm going to say this Ridgeline is the last new vehicle I'll be buying. And I love her. Has done a great job for me driving some pretty bad weather. Got me home every time.

Ah, I'm 71 and will log another in September. Can't say if I could go back ten years I'd be saying this is my last, truck/car/motorcycle. I understand your love for your truck but you may find you outlive your imaged life expectancy. I did. And I'm happy for it. Really a motorcycle guy and just bought a new Goldwing. I fully intend to wear it out.

Rocking chairs on porches are for those with low expectations.

Oh I'm not willing to give up. Have spent many days in hospital due to being a type 1 diabetic since birth. And I'm still standing. My brother in law says I'm working life number 15 never mind 9.

I just don't think I need another new vehicle.

...And I'm at 81, looking at 82 in a couple of months! Took delivery of my 2021 RL BE three months ago, and LOVE it... Traded an F-150, and couldn't be happier. I've already made several mods, most importantly the idle stopper, the VCMTuner2, and the Fumoto oil drain valve. Access Lorado tonneau cover, self-installed as well. Yeah... This will probably be my last new truck.

I love my bali blue 2012 RTL as well, but there is always the allure of new or different vehicle. The only issue I have is each wheel shows some corrosion/bubbling near the valve stem. I've heard about taking a dremel tool to the wheels, but I'll have to research it more.

I purchased my 2012 last August with 129,000 highway miles and it never saw a Western Canadian winter. According to Scotty Kilmer, that equates to 13,000 city miles. It runs like a top but I was required to do all the fluids multiple times along with the water pump (and all relevant pulleys + idler), timing belt, drive belt and thermostat. I just had the spark plugs replaced and valves adjusted at 136,000 miles. Although way overdue, the original plugs were operational but they looked tired. I hope to keep this vehicle for ten years.
