Fred: Are you the original owner? I'll add you to the 300K club.

Yes I am. Bought it in Birmingham and moved to the Gulf Coast the close of 2013. The milage just rolled to 349000 and running well. Unless something radical occurs I plan to continue driving. I drive about 300 miles each week.

Passed 500,000 a few weeks ago and currently at 505,000 on my 2006.
396864

Starting to cost money in repairs. Recently replaced front struts. Need to replace control arms. Gaskets on doors coming apart. Rear struts probably need replacement. Engine still good but thinking about replacing it to not be doing something to it every month. Very little other than routine up to now. Replaced radiator month after hitting deer. Alternator quit a year ago. Check engine light always on.

Half a million miles. Wow. I'm going to go ahead and say you are the mileage king in the world of RL's right now. Well, save for the picture of the one with 517k a few posts up. But, you actually own this truck and I'm sure you're going to be past that 517 within the next few months. What an amazing testament to the build quality of the G1.

I think you've definitely gotten your money's worth. At your current mileage pace, you have about 23 more years before you hit a million miles. I believe in you.

My 2006 six is at 357000 miles and still running great! Got some noise under in front. Probably a strut. Bought it new so can’t complain! I wonder if it will give me a million miles?
Thank you, since we do not replace our vehicles every couple of years, (our "new" car in now approaching 20 years old), with most folks seemingly wanting to complain about the Ridgeline and "all" of its idiosyncrasies, we were starting to have doubts about our impulsive purchase. So, we really appreciate your enthusiastic and optimistic endorsement that we did right by purchasing a Honda!

Thank you so very very much!

Bill and Justina

Traded at 517,000 miles for 2020 RTL-E. Keeping it running was probably going to get costly. Steering pump whining. Check engine light frequently blinking indicating misfiring. MPG down. Oil leaking from driveline. Bushings in control arms almost gone requiring arm replacement. It never once let me down except for 1 flat tire that had 100,000 miles on it. It was a good run but after 14 1/2 years it was time.

If new one holds up as well my kids will be taking my keys away before I wear it out. Hopefully self driving vehicles perfected by then so I can keep some independence.

That's a lot of miles! Do you mind sharing details about how you maintained the vehicle? Did you follow the Maintenance Minder or did you use your own schedule? Did you perform the work or did you have a dealer or third-party perform do it? What brand(s) of fluids and parts did you use?

Also extremely interested in this. As far as I know, that tops the mileage record known on this forum. We saw one that had 442k miles for sale last year, which was the previous record. I have to wonder how many 500k+ mile G1's there are out there that aren't members of this forum??

Well, if that number is N, then I have to say there are N-1 owners with that many miles that aren't part of the ROC. :D

@chisoxjim sold his too early at 380k miles. ;)

@sstrahley's 2006 Ridgeline made it to 495,000 miles before needing engine work. He always followed the Maintenance Minder and used bulk oil from the dealer. It's hard to make a case for NOT following the MM when you read stories like his and @chisoxjim's. :)
