Great Ride And Practibility! — Has everything you need. The qualities of a truck but the handling and space of a SUV. Good power and gas mileage combo! Honda has done a good job also with there 4 wheel drive in these, never once had a problem yet!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Tons of room, plenty of storage places, hidden trunk is bed is awesome, tailgate swinging both down like normal and out like a SUV is nice to. Like the power sliding glass back window. Plenty of get up and go for a 6 cylinder! No problems in snow or on the muddy roads where I go hunting. Its a Honda it will run forever!!

Cons: Not many performance add ons that I am aware of!!

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.

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.

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Like the size, comfort, versatility,and safety features.

Cons: Rear brakes, motor trouble, headliner fell apart

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.)

Pros: Fits 5 people comfortable and has a trunk in the bed.

Cons: Small bed

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

Pros: Versatility

Cons: No built in navigation system :(

Big And Nice To Haul People Or Mulch — In my opinion, I think if the truck was a v8 it would be a much better truck to go off roading in. Easy to drive, not terrible at the gas pump and a def head turner on the streets.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Big

Cons: MPG

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.

Pros: It's like a swiss army knife

Cons: Fuel economy could have been better

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

Pros: Great build quality.

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

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!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Comfortable, Utilitarian Nature, High Viewpoint, Handling

Cons: Fuel Mileage, Performance

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
