A long time Honda owner, I just traded a Ridgeline, and I couldn't be happier. I put a lot of miles on my cars so I needed better fuel mileage. This car gets better than advertised. First tank 40 mpg (1/2 city/hwy). I used the a/c a lot on my second tank and got 37. I drive with a light foot, keep it in sport mode and shift up often, can't help to think what this car's mileage and performance could be w/ a DSG . This car is screwed together well. very tight with no squeaks or rattles. Stereo is nice quality and I got a few things that the Ridgeline didn't offer in 2008, like telescoping steering wheel, fog lights, and daytime running lights. For the price this Honda has a winner here.
Sport mode, tilt/telescoping wheel, i-pod connect, extremely versatile interior. I also like the overall unique look.
6 -speed DSG dual clutch transmission. This alone would shave weight, 2 seconds off 0-60 times and get the mpg well into the 40's. That would make this car truly a 'Sport'
