New owner, used '09 RTL

Hi all,

Just traded in my '03 Mercedes C320 for my '09 RTL this past Saturday 11/14. Needed 4WD for these Ohio winters, my RWD just wasn't cutting it. Also a new homeowner with almost 1 acre tree filled yard, so I've been in need of hauling light stuff.

After much looking, the Ridgeline seemed to check a lot of boxes. Got it at 75K miles, not too bad for this model year I think.

I'll be searching around the forum for the most likely repairs for this model year, and also some recommendations on tonneau covers; hopefully will post some pics soon.

Welcome to the ROC, enjoy your it great in the snow!
Welcome to the forum Rhoel!

Your RL should save you on maintenance costs alone, the Merc C-series always seems to be plagued with issues

Congrats on the new RL

Congrats on your RL and welcome to the ROC!
Thanks all! Nick, yes - I am looking forward to lower repair bills (knock on wood). So far I've already ordered replacement pulleys for the rear seat legs not retracting, and needed some trim clips for a rear seat panel that fell off. Also my key FOB only works about 2 ft from the driver door, so I ordered a replacement transponder blank key online and plan to switch out just the lock/unlock button guts, hopefully the range will be greater.

After a week and a half, seems like I'm getting 19 mpg....

45stang, I will be posting pics soon - maybe after this long Thanksgiving weekend.

Happy Turkey day everyone!
