Truck is underrated by manly men that feel a 'truck' can only be rear wheel drive and have a separate cab and box. It does what it does very well and is an excellent option for people that do not need a 1/2 tonne as a daily driver. The Ridgeline is built on a ladder frame has numerous storage areas due to the, god forbid, column-shifter.
*Four wheel drive is excellent for a Canadian winter
*Real world fuel economy is excellent
*In bed trunk is very handy
*Tailgate opening two ways is very innovative
*Very comfortable ride and seats are supportive
*Solid built truck with no rattles, squeaks or shakes
*Easy to park
*Lots of power (unloaded) for merging, accelerating, etc.
*Engine is very smooth, never overheats in summer, and handles -30/-40 winter conditions well.
*Low step-in makes it easy for the kids, pets, etc.
*Unfortunately mine is a lemon and is in the shop on average once a month over the past 1.5 years, mostly electrical.
*Torque peak is too high. When towing tranny is always shifting into 3rd and 4th on highway. Fuel mileage drops like a rock.
*Do not get a flat with a full load in the bed. The spare is in the trunk.
*Brakes are too weak for pulling any real weight.
*Sight-lines when shoulder checking is like throwing the dice if there is someone in your blind spot.
*No rear seat heaters
*Dash lights are too bright makes it easy to forget to turn light on at night.
*Interior dash design needs a major re-think.
