Funny you say this. I was thinking the other day if I had to take mine in for the fuel pump recall, I'd take out the rear seat and all trim myself as I wouldn't trust the dealership to do it right (they'd probably put a scratch on the sill as they removed it).I realize most people aren't as particular as me and don't mind letting the dealership attempt to take care of the problem.
And that's based on the fact that yours' doesn't leak? If Bill's doesn't leak neither does anyone else's? All those that actually have a leak are making it up? And you don't think there are a whole lot of people out there that haven't looked so don't know theirs is leaking?2019 RTL, our recent trip to Montana, 40 above zero to 20+ below zero. Rain and piled up snow on the vehicle most of the trip, still no water under the carpet!
Honestly folks, if you could poll each and every Ridgeline owner, I would be willing to bet that the number of vehicles actually experiencing water leaks would be minimal to minuscule.
I'm not getting defensive. Just saying there are a lot that have leaking Ridgelines and a lot that don't know whether they have leaking Ridgelines as they haven't checked. It's not rocket science.And dont get all defensive @SeattleR
Looks good, but I'd be a little worried about not noticing the alarm if it went off. If you could hook the alarm up to something like this though, that should do the trick...
Now it's [not loose] for a reason. I don't have any reason to let water out, but I do have a reason to stop it coming inI believe those "body plugs" are loose for a reason - to prevent water in the areas above them from getting trapped.
Nothing to suggest the 2022 is any less susceptible than 21s and other earlier years. Some leak and some don't.
I'm not saying they can't or shouldn't fix it. Just that there are reports of 2017's, 2018's, 2019's, 2020's, 2021's and 2022's leaking. There is not enough data to show if any one MY is more susceptible than another or what percentage leak. Just that it's been going on for 5+ years (for G2) and no evidence of it having been fixed.There are many small things that occur in a car plant year to year that the consumer doesn't see. Reworking how they seal a seam wouldn't make the cover of Car and Driver.
You're good - they're on the driver's side only.Was going over everything when I got home (all in all not horrible, a few scratches and few pieces of plastic that needed snapping back in) and noticed that there are plastic covers on the seat rails for the driver side but not the passenger. I honestly don't remember if both sides should have them or not so thought I would post here. Can anyone let me know if there are in fact covers that are missing?
