Bought the Honda Ridgeline Sport in black color specifically to tow a boat. Towing capacity for this boat is 5000 pounds which with the boat and trailer weighing 4000 pounds gives me plenty of towing capacity leeway. 4WD. The Honda Ridgeline Sport is a better looking option than the RTL and other Ridgeline models but doesn't come with Navigation ( instead I use Garmin), and sunroof (don't need), but the Sport trim package does include nice sporty wheels and a sportier grill which gives a styling profile which I like. Honda has since redesigned the Ridgeline in 2017 but the new design is not distinctive as the old ones with that rising side panel in the bed. The new ones do have better gas mileage which is the one weakness with the original Ridgelines. I love my truck and it's got a following that's cult-like as to owners swearing by the truck. If you can get ahold of the first production ones with low mileage than you will enjoy it for years....after all it's a Honda and they last forever with basic care.

Great Pick-Up Truck option

by from Massapequa Park, N.Y. on June 24, 2017

Car has everything in terms of Comfort, ease of driving, storage room and modern extras including bluetooth and usb charging ports. Rides like a Honda Pilot with a little beefier look.

Honda's El Camono

by from Reno Nevada on May 25, 2017

One capable midsized truck. A truck you can take to the hardware store then to dinner. The body styling grows on you. Love the two way tailgate, swings out like a door or down like a normal pickup....
One capable midsized truck. A truck you can take to the hardware store then to dinner. The body styling grows on you. Love the two way tailgate, swings out like a door or down like a normal pickup. Another great feature is the huge locking trunk built into the bed. The trunk can be used as large cooler. Back up camera is built into rear view mirror, makes backing up easy.

Older Ridgeline better

by from Omaha Nebraska on May 24, 2017

The older body style on the Ridgeline is distinctive. The new ones just look like a regular small truck.

Low maintenance vehicle I've ever owned.

by from Haverhill, MA on March 12, 2017

Bought it because I like it's compact size and have a good history with Honda. Went 160000 on previous vehicle only did schedule maintenance and the replacing of wear items.

Love the flexibility and comfort of my Ridgeline

My brother scoffed and commented, "It's the perfect vehicle for a construction worker but not for an old lady". He was wrong. It is the perfect vehicle for anyone who needs a truck. I need to haul things to and from my mountain acreage. The expansion frame is wonderful for large loads. The dual opening tailgate is really convenient. The crew cab is comfortable for passengers but easy to fold up for extra loads. It is very easy to drive and makes me the envy of my theater group when it is time to haul sets and props. My only two cautions: 4 wheel drive uses more gas and you never realize how many friends you have until you own a truck.

Best vehicle for the money

I have had 2 Ridgelines and never owned a vehicle that I enjoyed so much. Such a classy, sexy look for a truck. If Honda hadn't changed to the design, I would have waited to trade in for a 2016. The mileage could be better, but overall never had a problem with the Ridgeline. Very dependable, roomy, and felt like you were driving a luxury car rather than a truck. Saving up for if they ever go back to the original design. I miss my Ridgeline.

This vehicle is a great compromise between a family SUV and home handyman's pickup. Cab is very comfortable for a large man, but low enough for my wife to get in with a skirt on. The rear seat is adult-sized, and the truck bed big enough for most home projects. If you need to carry a full sheet of plywood you can do it with the tailgate down. It's perfect for our driving/camping vacations! Mileage has improved since my 2008 model to 18/21. 2014 version has locking tailgate and better instrumentation too. Bottom line: same solid vehicle.
