2006 Honda Ridgeline Owner Comments

problem #5

Ridgeline 4WD 6-cyl

  • 35,000 miles


The rear seat brackets on both sections do not close flat when the seats are in the upright position to allow for storage. The driver side seat bracket failed at approximately 35,000 miles and was repaired under warranty by the local dealership. The passenger side failed at approximately 60,000 miles and the repaired side failed again at approximately 62,000 miles. The dealership quoted an outrageous price to replace the part that had broken and suggested that I contact Honda for assistance. It appears the number they gave me is not a working number since it rings constantly with no answer or voicemail. I use bungee cords to keep the brackets in a closed position when the seats are up. It is my opinion that this could be a safety issue in case of an accident with the protruding metal legs. I bought the Ridgeline for the versatility of the back seat area and should not be forced to have the seats down at all times or use a bungee cord to hold the brackets in place when the seats are up.

My 2006 Honda Ridgeline driver's seat frame is broken/loose. The first time it was found to be loose was at approximately 12000 miles and the dealer re torque the seat rails. The next time was the next oil change at approximately 17000 miles and the dealer re torque the seat rails. The next time was at approximately 25000 with the same action by the dealer. At 35000 miles the dealer re torque the seat rails. At 60000 the dealer tried to re torque the seat rails and the dealer told me that the seat frame was broken and that I would have to replace the seat frame and the dealer would have my extended warranty take care of it. Well I went back for the appointment and the dealer stated that the extended warranty would not cover the frame replacement and that Honda would only cover 50% of my cost $500 to me.

Interior seat fabric is defective in that it stains easily. The first time I noticed it was when I opened the door to get it when it was raining and the seats were discolored even when dry. Other events such as using the armrest and it becoming discolored, etc. Happened continuously. The dealer replaced the seats with Honda's original materials only to have the same thing happen. I now use seat covers to protect from further damage-which is a hazard to the operation of the side airbags. I have been left with no other options.

Ridgeline 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 52,000 miles
The power driver's seat on my 2006 Honda Ridgeline moves (rocks) while driving normally. The dealer said that the entire seat would have to be replaced at a cost of $1200 (the vehicle is off warranty with 59,000 miles). I'm concerned about the integrity and safety of the front seat support in the event of a crash in this vehicle. I have driven the truck since new, and purchased it from the corporate leasing company. I don't think that I should have to pay for a safety issue caused by a manufacturer's defect or defective design. I have checked, and various other Honda vehicles have had similar complaints, and some have even had a tsb for the "rocking" seat repairs required (e.g. 2003 civic).
