Honda Ridgeline owners manuals
- There is concern that some sort of electrical overstress is messing with airbag control units (ACU). This can affect the first generation of Ridgeline (2006-2014).
- A high number of Honda vehicles have been recalled because they contain dangerous airbag inflators produced by Takata. The models from 2006-2010 are affected.
- Owners reported concerns about malfunctions in the system that produce the auto-brakes to engage randomly, adaptive cruise control forgetting to adapt and the radar to get confused on sunny days. This seems to appear in the second generation of the Honda Ridgeline.
- Honda switched to a soy-based coating for its wiring causing an engine full of rodent-friendly chewing material. The soy-coating looks to be pulling rabbits, mice, and other rodents to use as a chew-toy and nesting material. The second generation of Ridgeline is affected.

The Honda Ridgeline is available in four trim levels: Sport, RTL, RTL-E, and Black Edition.
