Why would it be different? Do you believe there is relationship between the number of speeds a transmission has and an owner's propensity to join a forum?

29 as of October 26, 2022 according to @gti16vman.

The 9-speed Ridgeline went on sale on December 16, 2019. Five 6-speed failures had been reported at that point (again - that's just transmission replacements - not torque converter replacement which requires the same amount of labor or other issues such as judder, overheating, and pressure switch failure).

No. The 9-speed was also used in the Pilot (2016-2020 Touring and above, 2021-2022 all trims), 2018-2019 Odyssey (except Touring and above), 2019-2023 Passport, 2015-2020 TLX V6, and 2016-2020 MDX (non-hybrid models) in addition to the 2020-2023 Ridgeline.

If that's not meaningful, what is?
Note there would probably be more 6-spds (have to compare sales by year data) and most with higher mileages. So that skews the numbers. If 1 out of 1000 fail at (say) 50K miles, fewer 9-spds may have been sold and fewer of them may have reached that mileage. Maybe - just saying that there are 100K RL owners not posting on forums because their truck is just fine. People only post about problems
