About Honda Ridgeline

Honda's Ridgeline will appeal to people who want a vehicle that drives like an SUV, has the cushy creature comforts and technology of an SUV, yet has a truck bed and can still carry payload and tow. The Ridgeline, all-new for 2017, is more capable, more fuel efficient, nicer to drive, more tech-savvy and, honestly, much better looking than the truck it replaces. The Ridgeline may not be ideal for people seeking a traditional truck, but for those who welcome a practical compromise between truck and SUV, the 2017 Honda Ridgeline may push all the right buttons. Smaller than a half-ton pickup, the Ridgeline should appeal to those who are looking for a more refined alternative to the Chevrolet Colorado, GMC Canyon, Toyota Tacoma and Nissan Frontier.

"I purchased this truck in Sept 2016 and picked a real winner. The gas mileage and ride are excellent. I have the RTL-E and the extras are worth the price. I installed the CD player and the sound is great in the cab and bed. The handeling is crisp and sure footed. I like that I did not have to purchase a bed liner. The in bed trunck is great. The only thing I wish it was a locking tailgate. Overall very satisfied with choice. I looked at several and chose this one."

"I bought this truck based on actual needs and reliability.From the first day I was impressed with the workmanship of this truck. The fit and finish was top notch. The ride was great. I averaged 26 mpg on my first road trip. And can have a heavy foot at times. I have had all the brand name trucks in my past. But I do not intend on going off road nor hauling over the 5000 pound limit. This truck fits my needs."

"I have had my RTL-T for 4 month and love it! My main disappointments are the technology and interior storage compartments. Cup holders need to be like the Odyssey with flapped inserts so you can put a standard plastic water bottle in them and not have it jump out on turns and speed bumps. They are large and have no flaps to support the smaller cups and water bottles, the door cavities are very small and shallow, water bottles will not fit in any of the door cavities/pockets and there is no holder for them in the door. There is a shallow square french fry container holder which is not good for much. The Ridgeline could have done better in using the wasted space in the 12 inch thick door its sister the Odyssey does. The 8 inch touch screen is nice but it is kluge to use the volume controls are hard to fumble with and the tuning is hard on the radio. The Garmin Nav system had 2015 maps on it and the Android OS that runs the head unit behind the 8 inch screen was from 2010 android 4.2.2 and is incompatible with google play try to use it and you get no longer supported version. Honda says in a call to them that you can NOT run third party apps on the unit they block them. So the bottom line is I really like the ride, comfort, power, MPG, utility and looks, but the technology leaves a lot to be desired. Buy the RTL and get a good 10 inch tablet with a dash holder it will work better and only cost 500 not 2000"
