My new 2019 Ridgeline started making metal-on-metal rattling noise when I would go over a crack or seam in road at residential road speeds, but oddly, only when weather was rainy or truck had been out in rain. Made no sense to me that water contact under vehicle should make any difference in cause of noise, but that's the only time I ever heard it. First noticed it at about 1,500 kms on the truck. Recently, at 9,000 kms, I am pretty sure I have heard it in dry conditions, too. Honda technician drove it once with me in front seat, but it was a nice, dry day, so I knew we were wasting our time 'cause he wasn't going to hear anything. Dreading having to go back and hear them say it's all good: it's not. They'll just have to keep it till they hear the noise, and give me a loaner till it's fixed under their warranty. Disappointing, though. Older cars have enough problems, you don't deserve to have them on a brand new vehicle.I recently took delivery of a new, 2019 Ridgeline (AWD) RTL-E. The vehicle has just over 1,000 miles on it and has developed a low level (at this point) front suspension rattle that sounds like it could be strut related. It' not noticeable on the highway (better roads / higher speeds), but is certainly noticeable at lower speeds on local, average condition roads.
Surprisingly (at least to me; after all, this is a brand new Honda vehicle!), I do see quite a few threads on front suspension noises posted in this forum, which is very concerning!
Anyone else have 2019 a experiencing this issue? Any Honda tech's out there aware of a an existing TSB (Technical Service Bulletin) from Honda (possibly covering 17's & 18"s as well) on this concern?
