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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Everything you would want in a truck and then some.

Cons: Towing capacity is not up to par of a full size truck

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.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Reliable, good gas mileage, storage space, comfortable ride.

Cons: Blind spots backing up.

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.

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

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!

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.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: typical Honda quality and reliability

Cons: limited cargo room due to restricted access from dealer installed hard bed cover . Poor fuel economy for engine size.

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.

Primary Use: Family transportation

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.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: This an AWESOME truck.  I love the versitality of this truck.  What other truck comes with a trunk???  Awesome.....  This is my 2nd one I have owned....  The residual value is tops

Cons: Can't think of any...

I Love This Truck! — I thought I would keep my Honda Element until they took me to the Nursing Home, and then I decided I might want a boat. Well I'm not going to tow a boat with a 4 cylinder, so the only logical choice was the Honda Ridgeline. The truck came out in 2006 and won every award you can give a truck, and it has lived up to all the hype! Read the "Owner Reviews," these people a fanatics, they love their Ridgelines. I bought it because it has the "Tried and True," VTEC V6 engine, has a 5000lb towing capacity, looks really sexy, and the ride is so good I want to smoke a cigerette when I'm finished and I don't even smoke, now how many cars can do that for you?

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

Pros: Looks like a truck, has a truck bed, but "Boy!" it doesn't drive like a truck!

Cons: Everybody always wants better gas milage!

If you need the utility of a mid size pickup once in a while but want the comfort and handling of a car a Ridgeline is a good choice.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Perfect "do anything" vehicle. Utility when needed. Drives like car otherwise. Very stable at Interstate speed and twisty roads. Outstanding performance & safety in snow. Two way tailgate and hidden trunk are great features.

Cons: Five speed transmission shifts a little too much on hilly terrain which hurts MPG. If you drive mostly flat roads you will be happy with MPG.

If it would have had air cooled seats and the passenger seat been able to be raised, I would have bought the truck! My F150 is overkill for what I need and the Honda has the safety/tech I want. Read More
