Honda Ridgeline Problems

Some models have a problem were the transmission won't shift into fourth gear intermittently. This problem can commonly be repaired with a software update from Honda.

On some models a poor connection in the radio antenna harness and sub harness can cause static when going over bumps. Replacing the antenna harness and sub harness will commonly repair this problem.

A sensor rod that is too long can cause the tailgate not to open in the swing mode. Replacing the sensor rod will commonly correct this issue.

Honda Ridgeline Questions

I purchased a new 2012 Honda Ridgeline and I am the only driver. It has just under 30,000 miles and I was due for oil change so I also had the 30k service done. Before the service I started feeling a slight vibration when braking; like the front rotors might be slightly warped. The Honda dealer s...

Ridgeline has 160,000 kms on it. This noise is very similar to the noise made when you drive over the "rumble strip" on the side of the highway. This rumble comes and goes. Typically only happens on highway, driving under load. Noise stops when I ease up on the gas pedal. My feeling...

It happens when I turn, and I can hear it when it is idling or upon acceleration. Any idea what this might be? I have 91K miles on it.

Honda Ridgeline Recalls

This limited regional recall is for vehicles currently registered or first sold in Florida, Puerto Rico, Hawaii and the U.S. Virgin Islands, and equipped with Takata-brand air bag inflators. Upon deployment the driver and/or passenger airbag inflator could rupture, increasing the risk of personal injury. Honda dealers will replace the affected airbag inflator modules to correct this concern.

Honda is recalling certain Ridgeline vehicles because an incorrect passenger airbag status indicator may have been installed during vehicle assembly. Without the proper passenger airbag indicator, the driver and other vehicle occupants may not be informed or aware that the front passenger airbag is off and will not deploy in a crash, thereby potentially increasing the risk of injury to a front passenger seat occupant. Dealers will replace the passenger airbag indicator to correct this concern. The Honda recall number is S52.

The spare tire may not be the same size as what is indicated on the tire information label. This could lead to improper tire inflation, resulting in tire failure and increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the spare tire or the information label as necessary to correct this concern.

Honda Ridgeline Reviews

2007 Ridge update-almost at 200K miles and still love this thing - like the energizer bunny it just keeps going and going and going. Truck continues with little/no maintenance other than normal oil changes, belts and tires. Almost no rattles even after rear end at a stop light by Ford 500 (hit me doing 15 MPH, totaled the Ford and I drove away). Everything works!! Looks like 300K is my next tar...

Guys moved to jamaica and been driving my Ridgeline for three years no probs ..two weeks ago a woman jumped the median flipped and nailed me in the front and left side. Then destroyed a tercel. Any other vehicle and i would have been a goner. Hats off to Honda you saved my life. Thanks would buy another in a heartbeat.

80,000 miles, rear main seal leaking, head light lense fading. Over all the truck has serviced me very good. Do not understand 80,000 miles rear seal leaking. Maybe a bad seal from honda.
