2017 Honda Ridgeline: Hesitation Becoming A Real Issue?

By  | 

The Honda Ridgeline might not be your typical truck but people have actually been looking forward to it. Now that it is here, it looks like some buyers are not too happy with what the Honda Ridgeline has to offer.

One buyer went on YouTube to complain about how the Honda Ridgeline has a 1 or 2-second throttle hesitation. He added that he brought up the problem to the dealer but the dealer couldn’t find a solution to the problem.

The throttle hesitation was not the only problem he had with the Honda Ridgeline. He also added that when he got the vehicle, the door was so hard to close that his handle pop out everytime he tries to close the door. He also pointed out how wide the gap is below the mirrors.

He later posted a video saying that the dealer got the door fixed but in since Honda couldn’t fix the throttle hesitation issue, he decided not to keep it. We do not know if this owner just got unlucky or is this a problem with the new2017 Honda Ridgeline.

You can check out his video below.

    I am getting close to purchasing the Ridgeline and that is how I found your posting.I have always bought a Toyota and had no problem over 45 year. I never buy a first year of anything this expensive but being Honda or Toyota I though we would be ok. Please let me know if Honda will back up this truck because they MUST. The hesitation problem must be the computer program problem but your door problem should never have happen. Sounds like GM old problems when they made their first 4 door truck that I still own. Never did fix it right. Pleas keep me informed. Thanks for your help.
