"Ovwned this truck for 5 months. My first truck. Love the look and comfort. Have had to takr it to the shop 4 times for engine light and service airbag. To me unacceptable for a new car/truck. I will never again buy a GM car or truck. This was my first and only one. I am currentyl considering trading it for a Honda or toyota. It is also a bit tricky to get into. Gas milage is as expected, I get 16.8 on the computer but more like 18 deviding milage with gallons used. Very good a large truck. OVerall I am dissapointed with this car and if I can get rid of it not loosing to much money I will."
"I've loved the truck since the day I picked it up, I really can't complain about anything except the gas mileage. I was averaging aout 17 MPG in round town driving but had to really pay attention to the economy computer (DIC) to achieve this. Seems that right around 11,000 miles and having switched to synthetic oil I am now averaging 18 MPG in town and 20 -22 MPG on extended highway trips. Not too bad for a big roomy truck with gobs of power whenever you need it.
As a side note my friend was seriously looking at buying a Ridgeline and balked at my choice of buying an American truck (need to choose better friends?). Anyway, I got tired of listening to his chatter and threw the keys at him. He's now driving the GMC (had to one up me) and constantly dragging his other Honda/Toyo buddies at work out to see it. Funny, he doesn't say much to me about his switch, but I get a chuckle."
