      Hmm, My 78 Ford hit about 395,000 on the odometer before the original motor gave up the ghost... Spun the 1 and 5 main bearings 200 miles from base. I climbed under and swapped the bearings, cleaned the shrapnel out, swapped the filter, and drove the thing back to base where the bored out 460 was waiting. and I had a 2000 Focus DD that I drove like I stole it complete with clutch dropping burnouts and it was a reliable lil car so I am definitely pro Ford. I am just hopin my Rubi holds up half as well as my truck did.

        Why on earth would you flip off a vehicle owner for no apparent reason, other than you don't think his vehicle is as cool as your dads plastic truck?

            I have to laugh at Ford and GM right now. They still don't get it. Americans pay a fortune for an automobile and find themselves waiting in line in the service room to have their brand new machines fixed for whatever little 'glitch' is plaguing. (I did it myself with a brand new Ford F150.)

            YES... an import will do this to you but the odds are against it.

            I just sold a 1989 Honda CRX with 281K original miles, RUST FREE. That car has a good 200K+ left in it, AND it was getting 42mpg the last time I checked it.

            As for RICE, let us not forget the ricers in the Jeep world as well.

            The import scene just has more youth in it. 16yo-20yo kids pick up a $2000 Civic and drive around like a typical teenager, challenging everyone and everything they can. It's the youthful "alpha male" syndrome. I did it in a 87 Chevy Spectrum, 93 4cyl Ranger, 90 Escort GT, and many other vehicles until I settled in, and accepted my place in the car pool. I'm sure we all did it. Whether it in a late model Civic or a vintage Mustang.


            Ok, back on topic. ... I kinda like the Ridgeline. Car comfort that can haul stuff. *shrug* If you're intending to use it for what it was designed, you'll be happy with it. As an off road rig, "Fugidaboutit"
