Model Highlights

The Ridgeline comes in four trim levels--RT, Sport, RTS and RTL and SE--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 featuring a locking rear differential. The Ridgeline features a towing capacity of 5,000 pounds and a 1,500-pound payload capacity.

The Ridgeline can credit its independent suspension and closed-box frame for its smooth ride and tough capabilities. It comes with 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 includes everything from the RTS, 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.

A new-for-2014 Special Edition (SE) trim, is based on the RTL, and adds unique 18-inch alloy wheels and a few exterior styling touches.

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 uni-body construction. It utilizes independent front and rear suspension, but features a relatively short bed and a car-like driving experience. The Ridgeline excels in its ability to haul 5-passengers comfortably and features handling that is decidedly better than other trucks.

Potential Number of Units Affected

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.

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.
