The Best Import Truck On The Market... — Excellent truck.. love the trunk space, easy to haul my drums around and great to hit the trails in also.. Cost of ownership? We've owned it for a year and other than regular mntnc, recently had to replace a blower motor for the AC/Heater.. thats it.. Great performance for a 6 cyl, and of course good gas mileage because of it.. The 4WD works just like it should. Very fun and comfortable to drive.

Love My Ridgeline! — I always said if Honda built a truck I would buy one and I did as soon as they came out with the 2006 Ridgeline. I have owned several Hondas, Civics and CRV and all of my adult children own Hondas. This truck has plenty of torque and power with class. We needed something with room for traveling with the grandkids but this truck has been a life saver when my husbands Ford trucks for the ranch break down. I have hauled cows, horses, hay and his broken truck with no problems. Gas mileage is really good for a truck and the storage compartment impresses all who see me loading the truck with bags of feed for the ranch. Over 99,000 miles and have not had to do a lick of work on it. Just the normal maintenance, will be taking it in for a new timing belt as scheduled next week.

Honda Builds A Car That Looks Like A Truck, This Is Not A Bad Thing. — Pros - Honda reliability, lots of room, great storage, good for medium weight towing, AWD, unconventional looks. Cons - Drivers leg room, steering wheel angle, fuel mileage, transmission downshifts to often. Equals - Honda builds a truck with Honda quality and engineering & Style = Vanilla

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Ahead Of Its Time — The interior has a wonderful, sleek, convenient design that has multiple uses and it made with good materials. The appearance is ahead of it's time and the trunk in the bed is a must. The 2 way tailgate is an awesome feature and definitely a quality all trucks should have. Power of a small V8 with the fuel efficiency of a V6 and handles wonderfully in all terrains. Can't wait to own one myself.

Great All Around Pickup - Needs Work To Be A Serious 4x4 — I have owned the Honda Ridgeline (2006) for a little over a year. For everything but serious off-roading, this is a terrific vehicle. Great on the highway, around town, etc. Can't find a single fault with it -- decent mileage, decent pickup, great handling, etc. Only fault I can see is that the off road capabilities are a bit limited, and the ability to upgrade the vehicle through aftermarket items is a bit constrained. I like to drive my 4x4s on the beach, and I have gotten stuck in the ridgeline. Part of the issue is that I have the running boards (which reduces clearance) and that I drive in very soft "sugar sand" which is difficult for most vehicles. I have just purchased a 2" lift kit from Truxxx, which I hope will provide me with the clearance I need. Unfortunately, I cannot get the large size tires I want because of clearance issues with the fender.

Honda Ridgeline — I love this truck, cargo space, interior space. Looks and rides like a luxury vehicle but has the optimism of a full size truck. A LOT of compartments inside and in the bed (has a trunk). Very easy to maintain.

Pros

Nice to drive and ride in. Handles well and can tow up to 5,000 lbs.  Love the storage space below the truck bed. Very cool idea.

Cons

Small truck bed so if you haul lots of stuff or large items a lot this may not be for your.  The truck bed will scratch very easily so you might want to use a rubber matt.  Really hard to see behind when you are backing up so get the back-up camera!

Great Truck If You Do Not Need A Full Size Pick-up — 2006 was the first year for the Ridgeline and it has not changed much since then. Overall I like the truck and the cabin area is much larger than any other similar 4 door truck. Up until last 2010 there were zero problems then things started happening. Temp control for AC & Heat stopped working on driver side... Auto door un-lock stopped working... I had to replace the rear seat floor supports several times at $250 a pop & ended up just using a bunge cord (sure hope they fixed this on newer models). Fixed dents in the tail gate more than once... you can not see anything when you back up! Never had any engine or transmission problems at all. Just change the oil and replace the tires.

Over All Good Car, Poor Truck — Wonderful leather interior, roomy and quiet. Nice dual zone auto a/c.Very limited cargo capability due to factory accessory bed cover. A little better fuel economy out of the 3.5 liter V-6 would be nice. Actually it's an Accord with an over sized trunk.

Pros

This is a great truck.  

Cons

The only reason we are looking to sell is because we have a new-born and the child seat makes it cramped for the front passenger.

I Loved This Truck. — This is a great multipurpose truck. I has a full sized spare though I have never used it. A storage area in the bed of the truck for security and for tail gating, a drain plug for ice melt. The back seats all raise and store flat for even more storage. Would be great for a college kid needing to come and go from school.

Love It! — Has an in bed trunk space. Love it! Amazing truck. Runs great. No problems. 4x4. Has a 6 cd changer. Has separate driver and passenger air controls. Alloy wheels. Just love it! Having another baby so we need more interior space is the only reason we are selling.
