I got my Ridgeline in April of '05 when they were first released. I was driving an '04 Acura TSX and loved it, but needed more utility, and certainly got it! Love the "regular" opening rear doors, split folding rear seats, trunk, bed extender, bed lights, multi- opening tailgate, power, 4wd. Much more useful truck than my '01 Silverado with the "suicide" rear half doors and non-split folding rear seat; somewhat better gas mileage. I stopped commuting a couple of years ago so haven't racked up the miles like I used to, but no issues other than the [common] one below. A great car/truck/suv all rolled into one!
Re-engineer the rear seat leg retraction mechanism; it broke on both my seats within 3 months after the expiration of my 3/36 warranty -- Honda should fix these for free even after warranty, as I understand it costs approx. $950 at the dealer and happens a lot. Change to a six speed transmission.
