2008 Honda Ridgeline 4dr SUT

247-horsepower 3.5L V6 5-speed automatic AWD

1000 mi   Directly after start, engine 'grinds' briefly. Same noise as a starter held after engine start. Posit this is an issue with the starter not retracting quickly enough after start. Bindex lubrication or sticking issue. Dealer claimed other part. No fix done 
36000   Whining noise coming from transmission when it shifts into 5th gear. Deal..AND..Honda Customer Service says noise is "normal." Total BS! I'm VERY dissatisfied with Honda's response to this problem!!

2007 Honda Ridgeline 4dr SUT

247-horsepower 3.5L V6 5-speed automatic AWD

14000 mi   TSB transmission update 
40000 US $50 Loose CV boot clamp on differential unit, spacer supply and clamp re-tightened.  
4000   1. Transmission has double shift. When no brake is applied, shift from P to D and there is a light shift into drive, then 1 or so seconds later a much more noticible shift to Drive. 2. Torque steer upon starting out, and pull to right. 
5000   American Honda district manager came in to test drive vehicle and basically told me they all do that in regards to the double shift to drive. They cross rotated tires to get help with torque steer and vehicle pulling to the right.
