2013 Honda Ridgeline RTL


What is a Brief History of the Honda Ridgeline? The Honda Ridgeline was first introduced in the 2006 model year and this body style look remained the same thru the 2014 model year. The truck was produced in 4 basic trim levels; RT, RTX, RTS, and RTL. All Honda Ridgeline trucks - 2006 thru 2014 -  are 4 door crew cab, are equipped with the same V6 engine and are 4 wheel drive vehicles. The RTL trim level is the top level and comes equipped with leather interior, sunroof (except for some initial production models in '06 and '07) and they also have dual climate control.

What's the Vehicle History of this Honda Ridgeline? This Honda pick-up truck is a one owner, non-smoker unit. It was originally placed into service in March of 2013 and it was originally registered in Pembroke, GA. The previous registration location - under the original ownership - was Jacksonville, FL., from July 2014 thru May 2018.

Any Accidents? With reference to the AutoCheck Report; this unit was involved in a minor collision with a small car on January 25, 2016, in Jacksonville, FL. We obtained a copy of the orignal police report - composed by the Jacksonville Sheriff's Department. The report indicates this Honda Ridgeline had "functional damage" to the driver's front fender and door. The report also indicates the vehicle was not towed - functional damage - and the estimated damage to the truck was around $1000 - which is also recorded on the police report. There are no obvious signs of a previous accident or improper body repair. 

Has this Honda Ridgeline been inspected and serviced? Yes. All Honda and Acura vehicles sold by Accurate Auto Sales are fully serviced and completely prepared for the vehicle's next owner. The vehicle inspection and service items are not the same on every Honda and Acura vehicle. We determine the items needed on different Honda and Acura models, based on our experience in our own shop, Accurate Automotive. Below is a list and explanation on what service items were performed in preparing this Honda Ridgeline for marketing - Accurate Automotive Work Order 26034, dated 10-26-2018 .

The Timing Belt Replacement Procedure with Front Plate Reseal. This included the replacement of the timing belt, water pump, timing belt tensioner and idler pulleys, timing belt tensioner adjuster and serpentine drive belt. The front plate - which is the oil pump of the engine - is prone to oil leakage on Honda V6 engines. This front plate is directly behind the timing belt, so the most adventageous time to re-seal the front plate is during a timing belt replacement procedure. To reseal the front plate; the oil pan must also be removed from the engine. So, the oil pan has been cleaned and resealed. The front plate has been cleaned and re-sealed. The timing belt replacement procedure is complete and the next timing belt replacement will not be needed for 105,000 miles or 8 years - whichever occurs first.

The 150,000 mile procedure was performed. The service procedures in 30,000 mile increments - 30, 60, 90, 120, 150, 180 -  are the most critical. In this service we changed the engine oil and filter, we changed the automatic transmission fluid - which we highly recommend on most Honda and Acura vehicles on a yearly or every 15k interval, and we changed the VTM-4 fluid in the rear differential and the gear oil in the front differential - which we recommend every 30,000 miles.  During this service we also replaced the engine air filter, installed a new charcoal interior cabin air filter, rotated and balanced the tires, changed the brake fluid in the brake master cylinder, and installed a brand new set of genuine Honda windshield wiper blades - which we highly recommend - the aftermarket wiper blades are just plain junk and sometimes more expensive than the genuine Honda blades.

We installed a new set of Spark Plugs. The new spark plugs in this vehicle are the correct NGK iridium tipped spark plugs. These spark plugs are good for 10 years or 105,000 miles - whichever occurs first.

We resurfaced the Front Brake Rotors. This machining procedure was performed on-the-hub so the rotors would be cut true and straight based on the precision of the hub that the rotor is directly mounted to. This ensures that when braking, the truck will be smooth, with no brake vibration or pulsation from warped rotors - which is a very very common issue with ALL VEHICLES.

We installed a new set of front struts and sway bar links. On Honda and Acura vehicles produced over the past 15 years or so; struts and sway bar links have an average life span of between 5 to 7 years or around 150,000 miles. Then they have a tendency to start 'popping' when going over bumps. This truck did have a faint popping noise starting; so we installed new struts and sway bar links so the next owner would have a nice quiet, smooth riding pick-up truck.

We installed one new adjustable rear camber arm on the right side and performed a 4 wheel alignment. From the factory, most Honda and Acura vehicles do not have an adjustment for rear camber. However as the suspension settles - weakens a little; the vehicle ride height lowers slightly. This causes the rear camber to go negative which can make the rear tires wear faster on the inside of the tread - especially if the vehicle is loaded. We have seen this issue on Honda and Acura vehicles as new as 2016 models. While most repair shops and dealers will ignore an out-of-spec negative camber issue because it is not adjustable from the factory; we will install very high quality replacement suspension parts as needed to correct the out-of-spec alignment situation. The alignment on this Honda Ridgeline is now straight and true on all 4 wheels.

We Evacuated and Recharged the A/C System. The A/C system uses R134A refrigerant, which took the place of R12 - commonly referred to a "freon" around 1993 / 1994 year model cars. Proper R134A refrigerant level on newer vehicle A/C systems is a very tight window and MUST BE PROPERLY PERFORMED using a machine. A guy with a hose and a can of refrigerant cannot properly charge an A/C system. With a high quality - industry standard - Robinair A/C machine; we evacuated the refrigerant from the A/C system, ran a 10 minute vacuum on the system, replenished the compressor oil and charged the A/C system to the max. capacity of the correct R134A refrigerant. 

We installed a new passenger front door loack actuator. The door lock actuator on the right front door was not working properly and would also make a slight 'buzzing' noise when locking and unlocking. This is a common part to need replacing. The replacement part that was installed was a brand new genuine Honda door lock actuator - not a cheap, aftermarket replacment - Honda part number 72115-SDA-A01.

We installed a new genuine Honda center armrest replacement pad and a new genuine Honda driver's door arm rest pad. Both of these are very common for wear and exposure. Both showed signs of wear. Brand new, genuine Honda replacements were installed.

Come in and see why we are the best place in Nashville and Middle Tennessee to purchase, service, repair and maintain your Honda and Acura automobiles.

Why Buy from Accurate?

A brief history: In 1997, Accurate Automotive opened as a shop, specializing exclusively in the repair and maintenance of Honda and Acura automobiles. The reason for specializing is because all of the members of the technical staff are former Honda and Acura franchised dealership technicians. In 2004, after moving into their new facility, they expanded their business to include the sales department that specializes in Honda and Acura automobiles.

Now for the reasons:

1. All of their inventory is selected by one of their technicians

* Most off of lease programs with American Honda Financial Co.

2. Most of the inventory is from southern states (FL, GA, TN, NC, SC)

* Avoiding undercarriage corrosion resulting from exposure to road salt and severe winter weather driving.

3. Prior to marketing, inventory units are fully serviced with all components / systems working properly.

4. Finally, all units are meticulously detailed inside and out prior to marketing



  • Vehicle pricing does not include applicable sales tax, registration, or dealer processing fee.
  • A Buyers Order (which shows an out-the-door total) can be requested and obtained, by all potential car buyers, without obligation to purchase.
  • For an accurate Buyers Order, we will need potential buyers full name, address, contact information and the lender (if applicable) that will be financing the vehicle.
