Honda Ridgeline Reviews

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.

I have an 2006 Ridgeline with 170000 on it and still going strong even though I used the truck while building my house and did things with it that I probably should not have done. (pulling / hauling ect) The only issue I have had is the light on the heater control went out at 32000. Do the property maintenance and all will be good in your world.

Bought the Ridgeline new in 2006 and now have 206000 on it. I have followed Honda's recommendations on service and maintenance. It has never broken down on me. Mileage is not as good as I hoped. 17 around town and 19 to 20 on the highway. Replaced the timing belt at 105000 and will do again at 210000. Put 95000 miles on each set of Michelin tires. Only problem is the thermostat control has never worked just right, it works but sometimes takes a while to get it to where I want it, and I have put 3 sets of brakes on it . It drives as good today as the day I bought it. Great truck.

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 target. Love this truck!

2006 Ridgeline has 102,000 miles on it, having to replace the timing belt and water pump; got Honda replacement parts on EBAY for $210 cheaper than at dealer. I have a local shop that charges 40% less for labor. I recommend everyone doing this service as you approach 105,000 miles. Great truck. I put a cold air intake on some 4 years ago and gas mileage has increased by 3 miles per gallon on city/highway; horsepower also increased by 20. Had trans cooler line to come loose from radiator; had to replace radiator at a cost of $700.
