Great Small Truck And Fits The Growing Family — Great small truck that fits my need fit my tall boys in the back and still able to have a truck for work. It also has a 5000lb towing capacity. Lots of cab room for long trips but he gas mileage could be better. I have only gotten about 16mpg average.

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

If You Love Sharing The Outdoors With Family And Friends, This Is Your Truck. — Perfect truck for outdoor activities with family or friends! It is in excellent condition, and I have never had ANY maintenance issues. This all wheel drive truck handles extremely well in the snow and rides very smooth in all conditions. Extremely versatile...can fit 5 people plus all ski/outdoor/camping gear very comfortably.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Very Nice To Own, Does What It Has To — I love in the in-bed trunk space, very handy to have, either for small things that you don't want to put in the main cabin space, or for keeping stuff out of the weather in the bed area. The fold up rear seat bench, also handy. The dual-action tailgate, what a gem. The convience of being able to open it sideways and not having to lean over the tailgate normally to reach into the trunk/ bed space. I don't know why more auto makers offer something like this some of there current models.

Great build quality.

Cons

If you drive off road, this is not your car.

Great Car. — Great build quality. Fit and finish is tops! Performance is as expected-could improve acceleration some. Lots of thoughtful additions in interior. A trunk plenty big for a mouthy teenager to be locked into. Stereo performace is tepid. I plan on buying another.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Built in cooler with drain, in the in-bed trunk.

Cons

only 1 - gas mileage averages about 15mpg

2008 Ridgeline Rtl — It is 4 wheel drive, 4 door, and black. I installed an AirRaid intake on it, for improved performance. It has a 3.5 liter V6, and good power. It doesn't get very good gas mileage though, probably because of my lead foot.

Pros

Everything that I stated above. Combines comforts of a car, truck, & SUV.

Cons

Unable to load as much cargo as it's direct competition, and the V6 hardly competes with fuel economy.  Honda may as well have a V8 for all the savings this engine provides.

Closest Feeling To Flying Without Ever Leaving The Ground. — Successfully combines the comforts of a car, with the convenience of a truck and/or SUV. Variable 4-wheel drive helps with traction while saving on fuel.

Went From A 2008 To An 2012 — Like the style and utility, had 12,000 miles when I bought it in 09. Headliner came apart, then the rear brakes wore out every 20,000 miles, at 72,000 the motor had BIG Problems....Still got another one:) The 08 was made in Canada, now the are made(100%, motor, tranny,complete) in Alabama !! Hopefully they fixed everything. The 2012 is a Sport model, very sharp w/ 18" wheels and black out treatment inside and out.

Tough, Comfy Truck — Great utility, handles great for a truck, very very comfy on long drives, reasonably functional off road, very hard on fuel, even when driven gently, has had wind noise issues since day one. It has held up for 80k with virtually no problems, and that includes being stolen and beat on for a month!

Pros

Gorgeous truck that handles like a luxury car.

Cons

Intermittant wiper speed needs to be tweaked.  It is either too slow or too fast and can be quite annoying.  I manually turn it on and off as needed to avoid the annoyance.  The turning radius is small making tight turns difficult to negotiate.

Hond Ridgeline — Overall, this truck is gorgeous and fun to drive. It handles like a dream and I wouldn't want to trade it even for a Lamborghini. If I had the money, I'd buy that Lamborghini and keep the Ridgeline too. I'd drive the Lamborghini on the weekends.
