"This truck is great for utility. It seems to be a little fragile if you are looking for a tough truck. The bed insert is easily damaged. The suspension is not up to the task of any heavy cargo. Empty it is very sporty. Loaded up it is a slug. Handles great when empty. The gearing is good. Fuel consumption is worse than I hoped being it is a 6 cylinder. The traction control is terrible and always cuts power which seems to create more problems in my opinion."
"I've owned Land Rover's, Nissan's and Ford's in the past. However, Honda has me sold on the Ridgeline! Their reputation for building quality products rings loud and clear with the Ridgeline. I've owned mine for 13 months now and I absolutely love it! It's practical, pretty fuel efficient for a truck (17 in the city, 24 on the hwy), it's roomy, has great hidden storage in the bed and the truck bed can actually carry a bit more than I thought it would. I highly recommend the Ridgeline!!!!!"
"I've owned my 07 RTL for a little over a year and before that, owned an 06. The tranny on the 06 went out after 1600 miles! So far the 07 has not had any issues w/ the exception of poor gas mileage and some rattles. EPA rates it 16/21 and I have never gotten that. I don't drive like a maniac and still manage to only get 14/17mpg and even worse in the winter. Its' fit and finish is better than any other truck on the market. Same can be said for it's handling characteristics. Simply put, it does not ride like a truck. It does very well in snow and mud and has everything I need. The navigation system and in bed trunk are two things I never want to live without again. The only thing this truck really needs is torque, but if that's what you're after, don't buy a honda."
