I don't think the 2nd generation of the Ridgeline will not come until 2009, so the 2008 may not change much. It is possible the car could benefit from a new 300 horse power engine in '08; the same engine the Pilot will get in '08 and the same engine the Acura MDX has for their '07 model.
I really like the Ridgeline - most everything but the looks which is why I'm waiting to see what Honda comes up with in 2009 - I think they can do allot better in style much like Chevy did on their last revision.

Was just quoted $24887 for RT and $500 more for RTX - don't know why they are discounting so much but we are going to buy very soon. Spoke w/ 4 dealers 2 low prices and 2 over 26,000. BTW these are out the door(ex tax) prices.
Honda is also offering 0.9% 3 year financing which is unbelievable.

Ridgeline has $ 2000.00 dealer cash on them . On other boards I see buyers getting invoice minus the $ 2000.00

Dealer cash of $1500 cannot be used in conjunction with special APR.
#581 of 839 Is this a good Lease Deal???
Feb 02, 2007 (8:18 pm)
I have been quoted the following on a Honda Ridgeline RT...please note that we live in Hawaii and on our island there is only 1 Honda Dealer....
Retail $32390 + fees (+Splash Guards $124 + Bed Extender $380)They said they would give it to me for $28395 + $342 for bed extender + fees.
They said the Residual Value on it would be $16185.15 and it would be a 36 month Lease, 12,000 miles, $4,000 down would be $421.30
I asked them "what are the Fees and what is the Lease Rent Charge" and they answered:
The price breakdown is 28737+ fees including the splash guards and the bed extender and the Destination fee. The only other fees would be the acquisition fee that Honda finance charges of 595 to start the lease And the wholesale taxes of 143.68, both of these are financed into the lease.
As for your second question regarding the rent charge, we refer to this as a money factor and based upon your Credit tier, the money factor is .285 (with the security deposit being waived). The monthly charge is 121.30 based upon The money factor.
From what I have read on other postings...this is really high even for Hawaii...how can I negotiate something better?
Thanks for ANY help!

With only one dealer to deal with... you may be screwed. $350 per month with 15000 mi and no money down would be a real good deal around here. With 4000 down if the monthly payment is 421 that would be around $540/mo equivalent.
I can't believe you can't finance this outright ($28737 for 48 months at 5- 7% is what? $650/mo?) With no mileage limitation or wear and tear on a direct purchase.

I think that I will go ahead and just buy. With their .9% financing they have on offer right now it looks like the better deal than what I am being offered.
I am going to see if I can get an RT for under $25000 though. I will see what happens. Thanks. I thought the lease looked awful, I was not prepared to pay that AT ALL!
I might be interested in a Pilot too...so maybe they will give me an awesome deal.

what's it cost to ship a car from the main land to hawaii?
I gotta believe this dealer is exceeding the cost to ship.
If you know of someone who sends a container on a regular basis to Hawaii from the mainland, maybe you can work out a deal with him.

I should look into that. I need to look at the Forum for how much an RT is and what others have been paying for it in California.
