"Rides like a car with truck capabilities. I get about 18 mpg city and about 24 mpg on Hwy. I love the trunk space under the bed....but the bed scratches easily. Not a good thing with 2 German Shepherds in the back. Wish the styling of the front looked more agressive, but overall -- nice truck."
"I am a sort of girly girl, but I live on a dirt road & have horses. This truck is great for this life. I pick up hay & feed, smooth drive even on the bumpy road to my house. It's tough enough for all the things I do but still very classy. I love driving this truck! It's my 3rd one. I get a new one every year. The next one is going to have nav!"
"I love the space in the cb and I love the trunk. I love the fact that it is lower to the ground than my f150 and easier to climb in and out of. I have 5 dogs so I am also fond of the back set that flips up so they can either sit on the floor back there or I bought the canopy for it and they can ride in the back and I can still fit 5 adults comfortably in the cab, as well as luggage in the trunk.
the headrests could be a little more ergonomic for the neck support and the vehicle had lost a lot of value since I bought it. I hoped being a honda it would hold its value."
"Great ride and handling. Stability control let me cross 2 lanes of traffic to avoid chute falling off cement truck--no fishtailing or loss of control. Trunk is fantastic. Does everything well and gives relatively good mileage."
"Just bought a black 2008 RTX. You couldn't ask for a more comfortable vehicle although I would expect at least a manual lumbar! Love the tailgate/storage and bed liner. Vehicle handles very well. RTX has no frills..bascially the tow package and 17" wheels. I added running boards and 20" wheels and it looks awesome!"
"I love this truck. The hidden cargo area in the bed is the best. It holds a large cooler and keeps drinks cold. You can use it as a cooler by itself; just pull the built-in plug to drain. We tow our motorcycle trailer with no problem. It has been averageing 18 city/23 highway mpg. Great truck!"
"I was a little skeptical of this vehicle at first but I needed something that was a comfortable ride and could do some light towing for long distances. So far this truck has met all of my hauling needs and is quite a comfortable ride. I have towed my 16 ft. fishing boat on multiple trips and I barely feel it even when passing other vehicles on the highway. My wife and I really enjoy have the dual heating and cooling options plus the heated seats are great in the winter time. We were both really surprised at how well the automatic 4WD handled in the snow and rain because the sensors picked it up immediately and we were on our way.
The only drawbacks we have had with this vehicle is gas mileage, the truck bed scratches very easy, the backseats are not comfortable for passengers on long drives, and we can't get the XM option to go away on the radio even after we discontinued the service."
"Honda always stood for quality and reliability enough said. This truck rides like a car and performs well. It is comfortable and I can get all my projects done and love taking it on fishing and camping trips. Another refined and quality product from Honda."
"I been owing the vehicle since two years. I have never had any major problems. I rode long distances and is comfortable. I really recommend the vehicle. If you have the extra cash. I recommend the GPS & MP3 radio. In today's era is a plus..."
"The Ridgline is a very dependable vehicle with an ugly side....bad gas mileage. I've tried the "driving Ms. Daisy" approach and the best I have been able to achieve is 19 mpg, however, the average is around 15 mpg. I love the storage in this vehicle; the in bed trunk and under the back seat. the pulling power seems to be ok, but again, dont expect to get even 15 mpg. Over all, I'm just Ok with the Ridgeline. Not at all what I expected out of a Honda product"
"I do love my truck, I bought it Oct 2005, Negatives are Blind spots backing up, Gas milage good for a truck so 19-22MPG excellent in snow, lots of comments from young to young at heart. I have excellent tread on tires never replaced, no work done on my ridgeline oil changes every 3500 and tire rotation every other oil change.. Problem I need better gas milage and I don't want to trade my truck but I have to, Whah, I think Im going to cry. I love my truck and navigation is awesome. Need a diesel or hybrid Honda! I don't know what people expect for a truck and gas milage but all other trucks get only 9-12 mpg and off road I never had a problem, never had to replace the battery or anything. the only complaint I agree with on these reviews is blind spots and of course "Gas Prices" not the trucks or Honda's fault they did good. If you want an awesome truck, and to be proud driving down the highway and you want to invest your money wisley then Honda Ridgeline is the Truck I researched all other trucks. O and yes I have 4 children who are 10-24 and they all fit comfy, my son's complaint on my last vehicle was leg room he is 6'3 and he is now comfy in the ridgeline front or back seat. Good luck"
"I have had my truck for over a year and I love it. It goes great in the snow. It handles great and is very comfortable on short and long trips. I have had lots of comments on how good looking it is. I would highly recommend this truck to anyone."
