2018 Honda Ridgeline review: Our expert's take


What it is: After a two-year hiatus, the Honda Ridgeline returned for the 2017 model year. Sharing several design strategies with the Honda Pilot SUV, the Ridgeline has a conventional pickup truck look, and it offers many of the same class-exclusive minivan/SUV/pickup features that the previous model contained.


The Ridgeline sees only minor changes, including a reduction in available trim levels from 12 to nine.

2018 Honda Ridgeline

Have a 2018 Ridgeline RTL-T bought used with 20,000 miles in 2020. Love the vehicle but since 1/2022 new fuel injectors and 6/2022 Torque converter and new Right front axle. All so far has been covered under warranty - saw the price submitted to Honda for all of it abt $5200. I still love the vehicle but wonder what’s coming next. Power train warranty only good for 60,000 miles and 5 years and my mileage now at 55,000. Hope things better down the road. I added an after market tailgate lock which works perfect includes backup camera.

5.0

Love it.

It’s everything they advertised. Safety features, ride quality, I especially like my gps. Have not had any complaints about my Ridgeline and I ll buy another.

4.0

Comfort and flexibility all in one.

Rides like a car. Functions like a pickup. Has good safety features. Gets good mileage. The only short coming in my opinion is a lack of a V8 engine.
