I admit Joe was right - don't get one of the first 10,000. I got my BE on Monday -vin 1288 and am loving it. However, was showing it to my wife and tried opening the rear door sideways and only got a clinking sound. Earlier, I had loaded something in the trunk and it worked fine. Back to the dealer (Bel Air, MD Honda) who had to order a part to fix it. (will find out exact cause later). They apologized all over themselves and and gave me a trunk mat to make up for the problem. My first Ridgeline 2005 was flawless and was built in Canada. My next Ridge 2014 was built in Alabama and had several issues with mis-installed rubber door seals and bed rail molding. Final inspection should have caught these. Good luck everyone.
