The Fun Yet Functional Ridgeline

The Honda Ridgeline is by far, the nicest vehicle I've ever owned. It accomplishes everything I need to do like towing a good sized pop up camper, and put a 42" wide lawn tractor in the bed with ease. This Truck is FUN!!! The gas pedal is responsive and acceleration is quick. The truck handles like a sports car and the interior is roooomy! I have had very little problems as far as reliability. I don't think that the Ridgeline will be made anymore after 2011. I would recomend this truck to anyone with a family and only needs to pull things under 5000 lbs and don't need to put extremely large things in the bed (even though the ridgeline can put most things that you'll ever want to put in the bed).

This is my second Ridgeline. Traded my 2006 Ridgeline in June 2009 because I thought I needed a vehicle that gave me better fuel mileage. It had 85,000 miles on it and other than oil changes, new tires and brakes, never had a hint of trouble. After missing it terribly, I traded in the vehicle that got better mileage and bought a 2010 Ridgeline. I'm in love again. Go to the top of the line and get the RTL with navigation and you will be thoroughly pleased. The only improvement I'm surprised Honda hasn't made is a telescoping steering wheel. Other than that these were the two best vehicles I have ever owned.

Best weekend warrior truck!

My second Ridgeline RTL and the best trucks I've ever owned. If you don't need a full size truck or are a weekend warrior (triathlete, cyclist, kayaker, skier, etc.) with the occasional need to load/haul something bulky or mulch the garden, this one's for you! Pro's - car like build quality and safety - quiet interior - crisp, sporty ride and handling - low/mid range performance - clever features/high end creature comforts - amazing AWD with traction control in snow - perfect load box size for in-bed multi cycle rack Con's - Fuel consumption (20 mpg avg) - High speed torque - Load box liner scratches fairly easy and cannot be rubberized (per Honda)

Love the shorter turning radius making parking a breeze, gas mileage much better than our prior pickup. Very comfortable to drive both for my husband who is 6'4" or myself @ 5'5" due to the ability to easily adjust the seats in multiple ways. Also like the trunk like storage under the truck bed as well as the ability to open the tail gait 2 ways making it easy to load/unload objects.

Initially didn't consider this vehicle due to its looks, then my dealer had me drive one while my Accord was being serviced. I was blown away by the ride, comfort, quietness, interior room and view of the road. Traded for this RTS 8 months later. So far I'm very happy with it. I've had it on several 5000 mile trips and I'm not beat when I get out of it. A telescoping wheel, heated outside mirrors, and seats that are a little softer would be welcome improvements.

Swiss Army Knife of Trucks

The pros are well documented - a versatile truck for the suburbanite that rides like a large sedan. I agree on those aspects. Adequate towing for my 4,300 lb boat but like most Honda SOHC V6s, mileage suffers more than others 'under load'. Get around 12 mpg towing vs the a 3.5L in a Toyota Highlander getting 16 mpg towing the same boat. The overall mileage without trailer is around 16 mpg for the Ridgie but I have a heavy foot...Your results may vary. Love the ride and handling for a 207 inch long vehicle and most passengers feel that the comfort level is excellent. Easy to service as well. Honda is still behind the times in value. I have a RTL with Nav but that is needed to get important features like Bluetooth, rearview monitor, etc. Hyundai and others are much more generous with features. The nav systems is ancient DVD-based vs newer always updated systems with flash memory. I rate value as middle of the road because the price is high for the top trim levels. The RT and RTS are better values. Of course, there are no actual competitors to the Ridgeline (closest being a Chevy Avalanche but that is a true full size truck). Overall, for me, it is the best vehicle for my needs.

Super smart design. Tons of storage. Rides like a nice car. Little to no engine noise. Has a 5 foot bed, but there is no wheel wells and there is a trunk in the bed; no need for a tool box. I am super happy with this truck and can not see myself in anything else. Thank you Honda for thinking this awesome machine up!

I've had the truck for about a month now and really enjoy using it . Gets good mileage for an all wheel drive and weighing 4500 lbs . ,better than the Sport Trac I had . About 2 mpg better in city and 3 mpg highway. You can haul 4 X 8 sheets between fender wells and the locking trunk is very big . I changed the tranny fluid a very easy job. Remove the drain plug and fill on top of tranny from another plug . Over all a great all around vehicle . Rides and drives like a car an hauls like a truck.
