You’re kidding right? American car companies had “PRIDE” in the 70’s (Mustang 2, Pacer, Vega, Maverick, Pinto...)?That's the biggest challenge to 'Trade Balance"... Can you REALLY blame other countries for NOT wanting to buy our poorly built ? and, of course we want their well built stuff... We need to get back to the 70s when we had P.R.I.D.E. in in our work... Productivity, Responsibility, Integrity, Dedication, and Education... THEN we will be unstoppable!!!
All Ridgelines are made in the USA. The Alliston, ON plant used to make the G1 however the G2 is made in Alabama.Still you have to consider the value... American Made Ridgelines are , if you have to pay a couple thousand more for one made in Canada, maybe it's worth it... 1st Gen Canadian built are lasting 3 to 400,000 miles, the 2nd Gen American made ones won't get you home from the dealership... be sure to consider also, the fact that the Canadian Dollar is back where it belongs, at 75 cents, since Trump fixed our economy... $40,000 Canadian dollars is only $30,000 American Dollars... Of course it COULD still cost too much, they ARE a Socialist Country...
Honda dealers both sides of the border do what they can to keep the business in they're own country. When the dollar drops or goes up drastically its an opportunity for one side or the other to take advantage.So I put in a quote on a site that specializes in importing cars from canada to the usa and vice versa. Looks like it's not impossible to do it on your own but if it was $100 for someone else to do all the paperwork that would be worth it. Also an importer might have other useful info.
I wonder if you could try to buy the honda care extended warranty in the USA for a Canadian Ridgeline?
Country and trim-specific wiring harnesses and related control / interface module programming would make all of these very challenging indeed, even if you manage to source the parts from Canada.I doubt I would retrofit any of those items... but could one obtain the parts and install them?
