Love my new (used) Ridgeline
Purchased a used 2020, after reading all the reviews for all the years, and found one that had the right combo of price and mileage. I am very pleased with the ride; it's basically a Honda Pilot with a bed! I traded a Colorado (which i was very pleased with) but the Ridgeline is a different breed of cat than a small pickup truck. Now i understand why the Car&Driver etc reviewers always rate the Ridgeline ahead of all the other midsize pickups. It's kind of in a category of its own.
Really Expensive cooler?
Boring transportation brought to you by a company that used to make exciting low cost cars.. It's slow, can't really handle a big payload, You sit in a hole, and it get's worse MPG than the 5.0 F150 I replaced it with. The electronics are annoying.. I hate the push button gear selector. Due to the seating position it's hard to see out of.. It's not a truck, it's an Accord with a different body. It does ride nice on the highway if you are short, if you are tall, there's not enough leg room and it feels cramped enough that your legs will fall asleep when you drive far.. I don't really understand the point of it.. I guess you could call it an active lifestyle vehicle, but you can't take friends with you, because it's too small, you cant take it off-road to go off the beaten path since there's no transfer case, it's not fun to drive, It won't pull a big boat, you could pull jetski's, but you could pull them in a much more useful car, for less money and better MPG. It's too common to be an image, or poser car.. The only thing i think it really does better is carry your beer for tailgate parties.. But is 47K too much for a leather chair and a small cooler? IMO If you want a Truck and want it reliable, Tacoma/Tundra otherwise buy the pilot.
Waiting on an EYE CATCHING NEW RIDGELINE
I own a 2020 Ridgeline. It’s a very versatile.smooth ride. I LOVE MY HONDA & take great care of it. ❤️ BUT, it’s time for a redesigned model. I DISLIKE the EMERGENCY button ! It’s TOO CLOSE to my shift & screen controls! 🙄 seats could use a little extra padding. Plus BETTER quality materials for the interior would be a win win. My sun visor is Already coming apart at the seams. 🤨 Hanging on to mine, though. Cuz, I DONT LIKE the new models. 🤔
