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!

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

best trucks I've owned...2007 & 2013 Ridgeline

I own a 2007 (with 155K miles)and a new 2013 Ridgeline. Good points: Great trucks that ride like cars. Mileage about 21 on hwy at 75MPH. Plenty of room and can tow up to 5K lbs...I tow a 3K lb. boat with it. The 2007 had back up sensors.( that I prefer to the 2013 back up camera) Bad points: The back up camera is less user friendly than the back up sensors. In poor weather conditions, the camera distorts the view terribly and doesn't provide the driver with a signal or alarm when too close to an object. The camera lacks the confidence one get with sensor alarms With the camera, I expect more damage compared to having sensors alarm. They have been problem free vehicles todate! Wish they made a diesel version. That would be a great vehicle if suspension is well matched for the added weight.

Drives Like a car

by from PA on October 19, 2013

I've been driving small trucks since 1990. The Ridgeline is the a great vehicle, handles like a car, has plenty of interior room, and lots of storage.

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.

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.

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!
