2006 Honda Ridgeline Crew Cab RTL 4dr Crew Cab 4WD SB (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I normally trade trucks every year. Since purchasing this truck I don't want to trade. I love it. 20 mpg overall for a 4x4 is great.


Best Features

Smooth ride feels like a sport luxury sedan ride


Worst Features

Steering wheel design needs improvement

2006 Honda Ridgeline Crew Cab RT 4dr Crew Cab 4WD SB (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Love the truck for highway and town driving - BUT. Gravel roads which are poorly maintained are a problem. Roads which can be driven uneventfully by Toyota and Big 3 trucks cause the Honda to scrape repeatedly and in my case a rear strut broke. Great highway vehicle but don't go too far from maintained roads.


Best Features

Ride is great and handling is like a european car. The seating is upright and better for my back than any car I have been in.


Worst Features

Increase the ground clearance and bring out a diesel option.

Review

By far the best truck I've ever owned. Fun to drive and handles like a car, but is built and hauls like a truck. Excellent in snow (live in Minnesota).


Best Features

Very smooth ride, interior room, creature comforts, in-bed trunk.


Worst Features

Mileage is slightly disappointing for a V6.

Review

The 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 Features

Best 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 Features

Low 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!

Review

This truck is more of a gentleman's truck where the ride and the handling are far superior to the Chevy truck and the Yukon that I had previously. The interior fit and finish are excellent and the brakes are better than most cars. I have pulled trailers and it does this with ease. If you want a heavy duty work truck, this vehicle may not be for you, but if want a great safe everyday driver this is the truck. By the way, my son is 6' 3" and he can ride in comfort in the back seat. I would buy the Ridgeline again.


Best Features

Exterior style, air bags, ride and handling, brakes, interior design, quality of fit and finish


Worst Features

Factory options instead of dealer options
