Need help... Can you please call this lady back (Honda Rep) and ask her about the trip computer (trip advisor) on the NAV. This feature is disabled. If possible can I have her number. Many thanks.......
Note: My friend has a MDX with NAV, his NAV looks exactly like the Ridgeline (the only different is Ridgeline NAV has a H, MDX has an A for Acura). The trip advisor is enabled on his MXD.

There is no trip meter on the RL with nav, I doubt she can make one magically appear. On that issue you would be better served to go to the Ridgeline owners club (google it). I've heard of some possible work arounds there. I doubt they'll work though.
#122 of 481 Clicking Clutch
Aug 04, 2005 (12:48 pm)
The clutch on my 97 4-door LX Accord makes a clicking sound when I press in the clutch. The Honda Mechanic (Dealer) told me that it is nothing to worry about and that it is just the switch making the sound.
Is the clicking sound from the switch something I need to worry about? It is the original clutch with 127,000 + miles.

#124 of 481 Roof rack and cab cover
Aug 10, 2005 (11:33 am)
Just purchased my Ridgeline last week and need bike and kayak racks for multiple bikes and multiple kayaks. Also have read reviews from this forum on reractable cover. Anyone found any other covers that work well? How about roof racks for kayaks as Honda's only carries one kayak. Lost a Chevy Avalanche in Hurricane Dennis storm surge and replaced with Ridgeline . My wife misses the Avalanche but fillups should cheer her up.

Good luck on the Kayak racks. I was at a Hobie dealer and was going to purchase 2 kayaks. The Fisherman Outback and the Lanai for the wife. The Honda roof rack will not accommodate these. The contacted Yakima and Thule to get some sort of retrofit but no luck. The Roofrack is narrow and short (front to back rail spacing). Tried the Hulley roller from the back also. NO GO.
Maybe Yakima and Thule will have something for next Spring.

I just got my truck back after having completely saturated front and back carpet. When I left it at the dealership, the first comment was that "we had those 70 mile an hour winds last night" insinuating that the wind blew in the water. The finally found a "plug" problem in the front wheel well. Should I expect to still have a leak around that back brake light? I have already had that pulled off for a loud whistle which they first tried to tell me was a normal turbulence noise. A clip was broken and had to be replaced and sealed, so I don't know for sure if that will leak or not. How many times were you in the shop before that decided you had a lemon? I now have a problem when I accelerate from a coast of a slight hesitation and a jerk. The truck did not do this the first 10,000 miles but I am told " this is normal".(Also have had to replace a panel of leather on the driver seat.) I would appreciate any advice from those who have already experienced these problems. Thanks beatmon

WRT to the hesitation and jerk, I have experienced this twice in the past month. It is pretty mild, but it surprised me because of how smoothly this truck normally accelerates.
I also SOMETIMES hear a clicking sound when I turn the steering wheel, especially at low speeds (in parking lots). It feels like the steering wheel has 16 or 32 positions and each time you pass a "position" you get a little click, similar to the ratchet on a screwdriver. Has anyone else noticed this?
My truck now has just over 4000 miles on it. Overall, I couldn't be happier.

Just to give you some hope in the leak area.I met with the arbitration service yesterday,apparently Honda uses an outside company.We agreed to an equity swap,So I'm now driving an Amazon Green RTL.this last phase took 45 days and was frustrating at times but the end result was worth it.
The action was initated by Honda without resorting to the Lemon Law.And I'm thankful that every thing turned out well,unlike another experience with a domestic manufacturer some 12 years ago.The dealership and the regional were a big help as they are local and can confirm the existance of the problem and aid you in cortrecting it.Good luck on solving your problem.

Help, I am headed back to the dealer for the 4th time for leaking. I can get no where with the dealer or Honda except bring it in and we will try again. This is the last try then it is Lemon Law time in Tennessee. Any advice? Thanks Doorman
