"The only negative about this truck is not having automatic head lights as an option. The ride is almost car like. I've never had a problem hauling a load whether heavy, or light. The trunk under the bed is a great feature, I can keep my tools out of sight. I've had no troubles with anything mechanical, or electrical. The Ridgeline is reliable, comfortable, with many useful features not found on other trucks. I'm a very satisfied customer, and if I was to purchase another truck, my first stop would be to look at the Ridgeline truck at my Honda dealer."
"I bought my Ridgeline new back in 2009 and haven't had a complaint yet.This Ridgeline is one of the best vehicles I ever owned.Smooth riding and serves my needs for a light weight truck. I have no need to haul heavy loads, thats what the big Dodge Ram and Chevy Silverado are for. I pull a small travel trailer and never even know it's there. I like all the storage areas and the swing out door and locking well under the bed for grocery shopping as it can hold a lot of bags and stuff and nothing is exposed to theft or to take up passenger space in the rear seat. The ride is superb. The only thing I wish it would get better gas mileage. At speeds around 55 to 60 I see 23-25 mpg, but as soon as I approach the 70 mark it drops to 20.
For me all I need is the ability to carry some furniture, concrete bags etc. or a small trailer. I definitely will buy another Ridgeline if this one ever wears out. It's a great family truck."
Cons: "Fuel milage, Power on the highway. Short bed"

"Five years since I bought this truck. The battery and tires are the only things that has been replaced, outside of service items. This truck rides so good that I hate to get out of it at the end of a long drive. The sound system is wonderful. The gauges are easy on the eyes and do what need to be done. I have hauled couches 300+ miles. Gas grills across town (35 miles). Moved dirt, rocks, sod and landscape blocks. This mid-size truck will do most everything you will want. The hide away trunk is great for shopping. Never used it as a ice chest but you could. The swing out tailgate makes loading the bed so much easier, I'm surprised it's not on all the trucks. The only thing I wish it had was a little more power when passing on the interstate and better fuel mileage on the same interstate."
"My second ridgeline. If you don't need over 5,000 lbs towing capacity or extreme off road chops, this truck is perfect. Great ride, good handling, very low maintenance. 4wd is excellent for on-road snow/wet use. This is not a vehicle meant for off road use."
"Unlikely it will die, probably my son will end up selling it after a few years of using it out of boredom, I have driven it for 8 years now and still love it. Rear axle alignment is not really a problem as posed in other posts. Mechanic at dealership not worried but if you want a perfect alignment, there is a kit available with dealer. When I look at specs report on alignment I don't worry at all. Otherwise absolutely no issues with truck, except for a torn speaker replaced under warranty. (yes, guilty of cranking it up too much)."
