2007 Honda Ridgeline Owner Comments

problem #3

  • 155,000 miles


This issues has occurred 4 times in the past 3 months. Twice at highway speeds and twice at speeds below 10 mph. The issue seems to occur randomly. When it occurs the check engine light, vtm4 light, vsa light and a few other warning lights light up on the instrument panel. When this occurs the truck will slow down gradually with no response from the accelerate pedal. I have to pull to the side of the road turn off the truck and turn back on. The truck operates normally after it is turned backed on (check engine light stays on for about 100 more miles then turn off). I have safety concerns with this happening again on a busy highway.

Ridgeline 6-cyl

  • miles
My complaint is I have a 2007 Ridgeline rts w/83000 mi, orig owner. Noticed this and brought to dealer at 50K that under very light load, top gear, ~45-48 mph, torque converter "pulses" in and out of lockup which produces a slight audible and vibration sensation. Tach needle pulses to confirm and seems to be getting worse at truck ages.

My 2007 Ridgeline failed to activate either the ABS or the vsa as I began skidding on the snow that was between the tire lanes. The drive lanes were clear pavement and at 64 mph in cruise control I changed lanes and the vehicle began 4 wheel skiing on the snow. I applied the brake and lost all control of my Ridgeline as the vehicle with all 4 wheels locked, skid over to the side of the road and became entangled with the snow bank. With all 4 wheels locked the vehicle slowed due to the depth of the snowbank. As it slowed the Ridgeline swung around sideways and slowly rolled on its side. At that point the side air bag curtain deployed. Scratching my eye ball and hitting my ear so hard I had to put my hand to my ear to see if it was still attached. Either the vsa or the ABS should have activated. And the drivers air bag should not have deployed due to the fact the vehicle was laying on the passenger side. Causing over $10,000 damage. After the repair I took the vehicle to my dealer and I was told there is nothing wrong with any of the systems. Nor were they concerned that this incident, under different circumstances could have easily ended in death.
