Most comfortable truck I have owned
It fits all of my needs. It is comfortable to take on trips, can haul all my needs, either for things I need for my home ,on a weeklong fishing trip or a vacation down south. Overall, it is the perfect vehicle for me.
Best vehicle I’ve owned to date
Design, comfort, reliability excellent. Was no wonder CR had it as one of the top rated. Would buy it again in an instant. If it meets your requirements, buy a used one. You won’t be disappointed.
In-bed trunk & liftable rear seats nailed it!
Bought our RTL in 2014 w 37k miles on it. After driving & loving SUV’s for 18 years, this truck meets our needs beautifully with features like the in-bed trunk and the liftable rear seats. Also love the cargo lights and the versatile tailgate. The rear seats are perfectly comfortable, and when lifted make it easy to travel w two big dogs and a crated cat. This feature adds great cargo space! It’s a pleasure to drive, handles very well, with a softer ride than a truck. (Same base as Honda Pilot) With it we’ve towed utility trailers (don’t even know it’s there), horses, and boats; and it has performed well. I will say that if you tow a load close to 5,000 lbs up & down mountains & hills, you’ll be more aware of having 6 cylinders instead of 8. Although we did this occasionally, the Ridgeline handled it just fine. It’s very stable for towing. It handles snow like a pro (we keep Michelin LTX MS tires on it), and we like that is has front wheel drive as well as all-wheel/4 wheel Hi & Lo. A couple of points to consider: 1) The Ridgeline’s very comfortable ride isn’t as quiet as some vehicles; you will hear some highway noise. 2) The cargo cover we have has Velcro to seal down the sides, but some water can get in at the cab end where the cover connects. We put softside luggage into black trash bags just in case. 3) The design makes for blind spots. Just be more diligent in checking. This has been a reliable, comfortable, very nice truck for our needs. This year my college-age daughter is driving it and loves it! You won’t be disappointed.
