Same here. I live in South Jersey and have only seen 2 other Ridgelines in my travels. There is a silver one that must be local to me (seen it a few times now), and saw a black one with PA plates.tedridge said:Thanks NJ Devil5. Do you live in NJ? I do and have only seen two other Ridgelines on the road since April when I bought mine.

Had my oil changed at about 3600 when it was in for windshield work. I now have about 7400 and my past due indicator has been on for about 20 miles. The dealer checked my oil, said it was fine and reset my indicator. He also told me to stick around every 5000 miles on changes. I'm really questioning how accurate these indicators are if it was reset at 3600 and went off at 7400. IMO, pay more attention to your mileage and conditions and stick to schedule, rather than when it tells you to change it. (At least until you're comfortable with what it's reporting)
Consider for a moment that the average number of cars per person in the US is about .7. That means for every 100 people there are 70 cars out there. I believe this came from a survey that only counted adults so it is probably lower but I am not sure. Considering there are several million people in New Jersey, there are probably over a million cars on the road in New Jersey each day. Even if all 10k+ Ridgelines sold to date were sold in New Jersey, this would still account for only 1 percent of all cars on the road in New Jersey each day. So you chance of seeing one on any given day are actually pretty slim. Go out and find an old style VW Bug on the road, I know there are more then 50k of those still carting around and probably a fair number near the ocean in NJ. You may see one but it isn't as likely you are going to see a few. (FACT: in 1993 there were 5.18 Million Vehicles Registered in the state of NJ)tedridge said:Interesting. I'm wondering why they're not selling like hotcakes here in NJ. I live in Central West NJ and drive to Jersey City every day on Rt 78. I have yet to see one on the highway. I've only seen two locally around home.
Live here in the central Illinois. My cousin was the trainer on the Devils team back in the mid 90's when they won their first cup, so I've been hooked ever since. They're quite a success story, but unfortuantely don't get near the attention they deserve.tedridge said:Thanks NJ Devil5. Do you live in NJ?
