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.

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.
Honda Ridgeline Reviews
2006 Honda Ridgeline Bought new in 2006 and just passed 245,000. Other than routine maintenance no major problems. Shooting for 300,000. Great truck and well worth the money at the time.
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...
