Oh yes. It is definitely covered.
not getting a diesel. I don’t tow everyday, once a month, maybe twice, but if the Ridgeline can’t tow a simple 60% of what it claims it can tow, I’m getting a HEMI
looking at a Ram with a HEMI V8 Not a diesel. And I can get one here for $40K 2020 big horn with 72 months 0% versus a 0.9 on my Honda.
I owned a 2011 Tundra for 6 years and I can say that it was the best truck I've ever owned. It was very comfortable and drove like a dream. The gas mileage was in the high teens but that was known already. I never had any trouble except when the mice ate the window washer hose.So , I have a 2019 RTL-E. 34K miles on it. “ “ “Transmission Too Hot” light came on 5x while towing a 2019 Forest River 19’ 3050lb. camper. Took into shop and Honda is having to replace my transmission now. So disappointed. I really love the truck. Rides smooth as butter and feels great. But they really blew it when it came to power. Apparently, there’s been many issues with this. Probably why the 2020 has a 8 speed transmission now. I also bet they got a bigger cooler too. Looks like I’m not gonna take chances anymore. May have to look at a Tundra or Ram.
Oh yes. I had a 1968 SkyLark with that 2 speed power-"slide" transmission. Oh and the 9" drum break system? Try stopping that quickly going down a long hill.Domed cylinder heads (hemispherical combustion chambers) are nearly obsolete. Chrysler is still milking the "hemi" trademark, though. The design is limited to one intake and exhaust valve per cylinder and it's hard to control emissions. "Hemis" sound good because they're V8's and feel good because their large displacement allows for good low-end torque. Other than the shape of the combustion chamber (which has been used by many other automakers over the decades), there's nothing special about a "hemi". The carbureted, 1.6L, 4-cylinder engine in the 1981 Ford Escort was technically a "hemi" engine, too. It developed all of 65 horsepower and literally made a wheezing sound (my parents bought a new '83 Escort wagon with the 1.6L HO ("High Output" - 80 HP - hold on!) and I had an '86 with the 88 HP 1.9L (which actually felt fast to me at the time having previously owned a '65 Skylark with a two-speed automatic).
Unless it was replaced with a Powerglide, I believe that was actually a Super Turbine 300 (ST-300) which was a different GM two-speed automatic used from 1964 to 1969.Oh yes. I had a 1968 SkyLark with that 2 speed power-"slide" transmission. Oh and the 9" drum break system? Try stopping that quickly going down a long hill.
They don't seem to have the best reputation. I know some guys that like their diesels, but they mostly seem to talk about the slightly older ones and aren't into the newest ones with all the fancy tech. Personally I'm not sure I would buy one and plan to keep it a long time. They seem nice though so if you can get one with a good extended warranty it might be worth it. Either way I wouldn't want to be in and out of the shop a lot.I have not looked in many years. but check the repair trends on a Dodge. I'll never have another. But remember I said many years. maybe they are great now.
