I was in the market for something more versatile then my luxury sedan but didn't want to give up all the comforts of a luxury car. I have 3 kids and am constantly lugging hockey gear, motorcycles, mountain bikes, building materials and the like. A sedan just wasnt cutting it amd my wife already has a large luxury SUV. I needed a truck bed and an SUV interior that drove like a car (comfortable) and has all the modern luxury appointments. I also am a master Auto Mechanic and needed some Japanes car dependability. This Ridgeline Black edition fit the bill all the way around. Drives like a car, hauls everything I'll ever put in the bed, tows a utility trailer easily(camera to guide hitch with nobody around-cool), has a trunk in the back so I can put the groceries in there with 5 seats occupied, has comfy leather heated seats, all modern electronics. Feels like it was made just for me. If they had this new body style and interior 10 years ago, I may have bought one sooner. I get compliments on the looks all the time. Not missing my Infiniti sports sedan at all. By the way, first Honda I've ever owned....if you're not too proud to drive a Honda and man enough to know you don't need a lifted V-8 monster truck with noisey tires and a bed you can't load stuff in, this may be the truck (SUT) for you. I don't know how it does off road and likey will not because I'll never do more than a dirt road or snowy street. If you need to rock crawl in Arches National Park, get a Jeep. Buy with confidence! Great job Honda.
