ReviewThe navigation system is cool. The trim is polarizing, just like the body. Either you like it or not. But having never been a Honda owner before, I cannot believe that for a first try, Honda could have almost nailed it. At every turn, I'm impressed. Driving impressions are superior, thoughtful storage and utility abound. The technology is Acura quality, and the safety is second to none. No, it won't haul a small country, but most people don't. When used for what most people use it for, it has enough command of the road or the trails to feel convicted about the build, the utility, and the quality to get you there and back, whether it's work, camping, or snowboarding...it can do it very well
Best FeaturesBest features are the control system electronics that give you that amazing handling when making sharp maneuvers combined with unibody and rear independent suspension for a drive that will surprise you. Cost to own. Ride comfort. Interior electronic appointments. Gas mileage. Oh yeah, the trunk!
Worst FeaturesLow gear transfer case and higher ground clearance. Granted, Honda did not intend for this truck to go there, but as the idea evolves, a more rugged version of the Ridgeline could be well received. Even then just a more powerful engine would give the truck an even bigger edge. As is, its great!
