2006 Honda Ridgeline Owner Comments

problem #4

Took truck to Honda dealer for routine maintenance and asked them to check rear driver's side brake because it was making a noise and seemed to be gripping after I would release the brake pedal. They told me I need new brake pads and new rotors. They told me the brake pads are metal against metal, there's too much rust on rotors. They want $554 for the front, $544 for the rear. I asked if this wasn't premature for such a worn brake. I drive the Honda 3 times a week on average, moreso in the winter months, and my driving has been mostly highway so I am not doing a lot of braking. I am not certain this is normal wear and tear by any means. I can't believe it would be on such low miles. I won't buy another Honda in the future though.

The brakes on my 2006 Honda Ridgeline have never worked right despite numerous visits to the dealer. One has to pump the brakes at some stops to keep the pedal from hittting the floor. On one occasion, I was towing a light trailer and the truck would not stop causing a minor accident.

The rear brakes on our 2006 Honda Ridgeline wore out in 12,000 miles and I see you have a settled complaint with other Honda's of the same year, why not ours?

Brake system malfunctioned causing brake pedal to go to the floor negating the ability to stop. Dealer clueless in cause.
