Very interested to see what vehicle you end up with if you still plan on owning a pickup. I did crazy amounts of due diligence before purchasing the Ridgeline. The Tacoma is highly reliable, but I didn't fit well in it...just too small. I didn't want a full size truck because they won't fit in my garage (the RL barely fits). The Frontier was too dated. That left the Ranger, GM twins, and the Ridgeline. The GM trucks are known for their many problems, and the Ranger was really cheap inside. Hard plastics everywhere and really expensive for what you get. So I landed on the Ridgeline. I'm not a "Honda Guy" and have typically been a Ford man. Figuring that Honda is known for making better vehicles than Ford I bought the Honda. But this site is scaring the crap out of me. I even bought the extended warranty and I have never purchased an extended warranty on any product I've ever owned.I plan to dump it in the next 18,000 miles before the warranty is up and leave the Honda brand because of their products and attitude. The Honda of today is not the same Honda I fell in love with. That's a shame because the Ridgeline is an extremely useful vehicle and whatever I buy next will likely require more sacrifices, but I can't keep rewarding a company who demonstrates zero desire to retain my business.
