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

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

Cons: only 1 - gas mileage averages about 15mpg

The Honda Ridgeline: The Greatest All-around Vehicle — It is the ideal vehicle for all around use. Has the modern stylings that appear futuristic. It really stands out in a crowd. It possesses a lot of "umph". It's quick off the line, but maintains a relatively modest fuel consumption rating, because of it's 3.5L V6. It's only a part-time four wheel drive, the computer engages the rear wheels only when it senses slippage. So you save on that gas mileage as well. It's quite spacious inside. I've never personally sat in the rear of the vehicle, but I assume it's spacious. I've never heard any complaints. It's box IS a little on the small side, but large enough to get whatever job done, that you need. Yet small enough that you won't have people hounding you to help them move. Plus, the trunk is to die for. Most people don't even realize that the truck has a trunk in the bed, plus it's lockable so you have that added convenience and security. The Honda Ridgeline is an absolute delight to drive and to own.

Pros: Looks, Comfort, Convenience, Modest Fuel Consumption.

Cons: Only one. Auto Locks don't disengage when an adult rides in the front seat.

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.

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.

If You Want The Look Of A Truck, But Dont Need It This Is For You —

I took the Honda Ridgeline out for a test drive, I had it for 6 hours, It was comfortable, for a truck. It not having Low (4x4) means this is a "soccer mom" auto. Althou it has 4x4 it is pretty much for people who get spooked in the snow/bad weather or their cottage is JUST off the beaten path. The nui-body construction meant this is limited to towing od hauling, According to the dealer rep, it has a 4500lbs tow rating (my 1993 Olds 98 has the same rating). It has a 1700lbs payload (according to the dealer rep). Which means if 4 people are in it and there combined weight is 900lbs that means 800lbs in the back, Not that good for a truck. Mind you these are the figures that the dealer gave me. I found the truck to be responsive, but really lagged going up a semi-steep incline. There was lots of storage space in it and it handled the road very well. I found the V-6 to be thristy (I got an avg of 18 mpg were the Avalanche I tested got an average of 21MPG and it is alot heavier with a V-8). The fit and finish I found was good, but there was a rattle in the glove box area, We filled it up and the rattle was alot quieter.

Owner for 0 years, 0 months

Miles Driven per Year:0

Pros: If you wont go offroad or haul a load it is for you

Cons: fuel mileage, tow rating and payload, this is not a truck you can work, you cant chose you 4x4 gear (no low)
