Hello everyone, haven't made a post here in awhile now since the ridgeline came out. anyways, i've decide to buy something else and with all the searching and dealing at every honda in my surrounding area. i went the other direction and purchased a luxury car. Mercedes benz E320 2002 over the ridgeline, practically brand new, but used (meaning, it only has 35k miles and owned by a guy who travels alot and didn't drive the car much but to work 8 miles away). well, it has been a pleasure reading everyone's post and some of you who has given their opinions on how to deal with the dealers when the ridge came out. Will read on and drop in once and while.
