Honda Ridgeline

Years: 2006-2008

Jury is still out for the new resurrected Ridgeline, but we already know a lot about the older trucks. 2006 through 2008 were the worst years, with ’06 being particularly bad. While ’07 and ’08 experienced numerous issues like the peeling paint, premature rust, and A/C that doesn’t work, 2006 Honda Ridgeline experienced much more serious issues. Infamous #4 cylinder would often turn up rotten, indicated by puffs of blue smoke coming out of the exhaust. Replacing the spark plug can only get you so far, before ultimately you end up being forced to swap the entire engine. And 3.5L V6 doesn’t come cheap.

About Nikola Potrebić

Although driving a piece of junk, Nikola is a true car enthusiast. Precious few things move him as muscle cars do – especially those from the bygone golden era.
