Honda Ridgeline best midsized utility vehichle

I've always owned either mid-sized pickups or mid-sized SUVs and now I own the best of both. My Ridgeline combines the best of both worlds. I need a truck bed but I don't need a full size bed and I need a SUV cabin that has room for people and cargo. The Ridgeline fits the bill perfectly. I was surprised at how well it handles and how comfortable the ride is. No, it's not perfect. I wish it had a little more towing power and capacity, but I can get by with the rated 5,000lbs. My biggest beef is not having bluetooth! That option is only offered on the higher models (mine is a Sport). For a 2013 vehicle in today's technology environment, this should be as standard as an FM radio! I haven't owned this truck long enough to comment on it's reliability, but hey, it's a Honda and that's why I bought it!

The Ridgeline is really all that most truck owners need. It will tow boat, take trash to the dump or lawn tracker to the shop. With the bed above the wheels, there is lots of room. Inside are all of the creature comforts one could need. Possible leather, heated seats, good rear seat with lots of flexibility (one side up, other side up, great USABLE floor space), moon roof. Nice power, reasonable fuel economy. Love it!

Best Kept secret

This SUV/Truck is the answer to the prayers of folks who, He wants a truck , She wants the comfort of a SUV. The Cabin has much more room than a small truck . We are older and a small truck is too low and a big truck is too tall to get in or out of. This Ridgeline is perfect. You will not know, until you see one , how wonderful the tailgate that opens two ways, traditional lay down and nontraditional refrigerator door type opening. Then when you open the door like a fridge it exposes a "Car" type trunk under the bed. This feature is wonderful for loading groceries. I will never be the same all our needs in one Vehicle . I am in love. Go take a look, you will thank me! What Works For Me

All the truck I need

I HAVE ONLY PUT A LITTLE OVER 500 MILES ON THE TRUCK. IN THE FROZEN NORTH OF VERMONTS ICE AND SNOW I DON'T BELIEVE I'VE SPUN A TIRE. THE FOLD UP REAR SEATS ALLOW MANY ODD SIZED PACKAGES TO BE CARRIED OUT OF THE WEATHER. AS A HOME OWNER YOU ALWAYS NEED A TRUCK FOR SOMETHING, TRASH HAULING,LANDSCAPING MATERIAL,ETC. THIS TRUCK FIT MY NEEDS PERFECTLY,AND I STILL HAVE ROOM FOR THE WIFE,SON AND 92YR OLD DAD.. GAS MILEAGE COULD BE BETTER, BUT IS STILL BETTER THAN MY OLD CHEVY1500 AND IT RIDES BETTER.

Most practical car I have driven. Has hauling adequate for most tasks, Has a largeTRUNK! space for 5. Space for your purse in front of large console with storage. Easy to drive and parallel park. Much more practical for ordinary city driving and regular life than our double cab pickup. Gas milage is as advertised. Handling is very good. It is a pleasant car to drive. It will haul a popup or boat and tows well. We can throw the fishing stuff in the bed and then hose it out. The bed looks small but will carry large dresser,single bed, 4 chairs and table along w many boxes with the tailgate up as we moved a child from college. Will carry five comfortably for distance. Backup camera is a great plus. More practical than the minivan or truck because it has a large hidden trunk. Can secure things without their being visible.It sounds funny but this is a family friendly truck. We have driven Hondas for generations and have been pleased with reliability for 40+ years. I have no expectation that this will be different than the minivan which we drove for 10 years, sold to a friend and is still going strong or my civic which had over 200000 when it was wrecked while parked. I wish I had bought one sooner. They look funny initially but this is a great, fun to drive, and practical truck for regular use.

This little truck has impressed me in so many ways. I needed a safe reliable vehicle to get my three kids around plus be able to haul my carpentry tools. I am able to fit all my finish carpentry tools plus more in the trunk and the short bed. Needed to buy the aftermarket Ridgerack system for ladders etc but other than that the capacity is far bigger than it looks. Not great on gas mileage, thirsty little sucker, but I guess it fits in the class.

Great at what it is for......

by from Oklahoma City on May 11, 2013

Just got a 2013 and couldn't be more pleased. Had a 2006 and heard in 2009 there were 50 "tweaks" so I wanted another one. I was going to wait until the new design but it may be 2016 now and I didn't ...
Just got a 2013 and couldn't be more pleased. Had a 2006 and heard in 2009 there were 50 "tweaks" so I wanted another one. I was going to wait until the new design but it may be 2016 now and I didn't want to wait that long. I kept track of the mileage for the first tank and it was 20.4. I never got that in my 2006. I did get the bed cover this time so maybe that helped. I just put in a K&N air filter today so I hope I go up to 21mpg. The new one is quieter than the 2006 and a lot smother on the highway. I have hauled lawn mowers, mulch, top soil, mattresses, rock, and plants in it and NO problem. If you want to pull a 5th wheel and a large trailer, you don't need a mid sized truck anyway,
