Pros

Comfortable ride; payload and towing capacity; extensive standard safety equipment


Model News

A Sport trim has been added for 2012. It includes 18-inch black alloy wheels, black-trimmed headlamps, fog lamps, dark-tinted glass, an upgraded stereo, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and a choice of white, silver and black exterior paint. The uplevel RTS gets 18-inch wheels as well.


Model Highlights

The Ridgeline comes in three trim levels--RT, a new-for-2012-Sport, RTS and RTL--and they are all powered by a 3.5L, 250-hp V6 engine that makes 247 lb-ft of torque and utilizes a drive-by-wire electric throttle. The engine is mated to a 5-speed automatic transmission in all three models, and they all feature a locking rear differential. The Ridgeline features a towing capacity of 5,000 pounds and a 1,500-pound payload capacity.

The Ridgeline is known as much for its smooth ride as for its tough capabilities, thanks to its closed-box frame and independent suspension. It also has a slew of standard safety features, such as 3-point seatbelts for all five seats, air bags all around, anti-lock brakes, stability assist with traction control, brake assist and tire pressure monitoring. All of those features are standard across the board.

The base-level RT has air conditioning with an air filtration system, power everything, cruise control and a 6-speaker audio system with MP3 playback. The Sport adds 18-inch wheels, fog lamps, an upgraded stereo and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. The RTS adds a security system, privacy glass, dual-zone climate controls and a more powerful 7-speaker stereo system with controls on the steering wheel. Like the RTL, it comes with a trailer harness.

The RTL has everything the RTS has, plus a moonroof, heated mirrors, fog lights, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, heated front seats, HomeLink and XM satellite radio. It's also the only trim level to offer an optional navigation system, which also adds Bluetooth connectivity and a programmable multi-information display.


Value Writeup

The Honda Ridgeline is in a class of its own--it is the only truck in the full-size segment to use a closed-box frame and unit-body construction. It utilizes independent front and rear suspension and features a relatively short bed and a car-like driving experience. The Ridgeline excels in 5-passenger comfort and handling that is decidedly better than that of many other trucks.

Summary
HONDA IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2011-2012, RIDGELINE VEHICLES MANUFACTURED FROM AUGUST 25, 2011, THROUGH NOVEMBER 29, 2011. THE SPARE TIRE INSTALLED IN AFFECTED VEHICLES MAY NOT MATCH THE INFORMATION ON THE VEHICLE?S TIRE INFORMATION PLACARD. THEREFORE, THESE VEHICLES FAIL TO COMPLY WITH THE REQUIREMENTS OF FEDERAL MOTOR VEHICLE SAFETY STANDARD NO. 110, ?TIRE SELECTION AND RIMS FOR MOTOR VEHICLE.?

Consequence
AN INCORRECT LABEL COULD LEAD TO IMPROPER TIRE INFLATION WHICH COULD RESULT IN A TIRE FAILURE, INCREASING THE RISK OF A CRASH

HONDA WILL NOTIFY OWNERS, AND DEALERS WILL INSPECT THE SPARE TIRE AND IF NECESSARY, EXCHANGE THE SPARE TIRE ASSEMBLY OR REPLACE THE TIRE INFORMATION PLACARD FREE OF CHARGE. THE SAFETY RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN ON OR BEFORE JANUARY 31, 2012. OWNERS MAY CONTACT HONDA AT 1-800-999-1009.

OWNERS MAY ALSO CONTACT THE NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY ADMINISTRATION'S VEHICLE SAFETY HOTLINE AT 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), OR GO TO HTTP://WWW.SAFERCAR.GOV .

Potential Number of Units Affected

Summary
Honda is recalling certain model year 2012 Ridgeline vehicles manufactured on April 18, 2012. An incorrect passenger airbag status indicator may have been installed on the vehicles causing them to fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 208, "Occupant Crash Protection."

Consequence
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 that may have chosen to sit or been seated elsewhere in the vehicle if the correct indicator had been given.

Honda will notify owners, and dealers will replace the passenger airbag indicator free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin on, or about, September 21, 2012. Owners may contact Honda Automobile Customer services at 1-800-999-1009.

Honda's recall campaign number is S52. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Summary
Honda (American Honda Motor Co.) is recalling certain model year 2007-2011 Honda CR-V, 2011-2015 CR-Z, 2010-2014 FCX, and Insight, 2009-2013 Fit, 2013-2014 Fit EV, 2007-2014 Ridgeline, 2013-2016 Acura ILX, 2013-2014 Acura ILX Hybrid, 2007-2016 RDX, 2005-2012 Acura RL, 2009-2014 Acura TL, and 2010-2013 Acura ZDX vehicles. The affected vehicles are equipped with a dual-stage driver frontal air bag that may be susceptible to moisture intrusion which, over time, could cause the inflator to rupture.

Consequence
In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the driver's frontal air bag, the inflator could rupture with metal fragments striking the driver or other occupants resulting in serious injury or death.

Honda will notify owners, and dealers will replace the inflator, free of charge. Remedy parts are expected to be available in Summer 2016. Interim notices will be mailed to owners during March 2016. Owners will receive a second notice when remedy parts become available. Owners may contact Honda customer service at 1-888-234-2138. Honda's numbers for this recall are JY0, JY1, and JY2.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Frontal crash test results are valid for 2011 model year vehicles manufactured before July 2, 2010.

Male/Female Dummy Note
Male: Average sized adult male dummy in 35-MPH crash into fixed barrier. Rating is evaluation of injury to head, neck, chest, legs. Female: Small-sized adult female dummy in 35-mph crash into fixed barrier. Rating is evaluation of injury to head, neck, chest, legs.

Rollover Rating Dynamic Test Result
No Tip

Rollover Note
Dynamic (moving) test results (Tip or No Tip) and measured rollover-related properties determine vehicle's risk of rollover in single vehicle crash and its rollover rating. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is.
