I bought this vehicle new in 2007 for my business vehicle. i hauled tools in the trunk which was great in the winter, the rear seats pop up to allow rear floor storage. mileage was as stated about 15 city and 20 hwy. I would like to see a little larger engine and a bit longer bed. overall a very good vehicle in snow or rain. I wish the 4 wheel system allowed you to lock in above 25 mph. Even though it didn't, I never got stuck so maybe it doesn't matter
Love the trunk and the two-way tailgate. Very smooth, comfortable ride that feels more like a car than a truck. Excellent traction in all conditions. I had to have the transmission replaced at 34,000 miles. The dealership did it in two days once they were able to determine that it was slipping while in drive. I have pulled boats and trailers totaling more than 5K lbs with no problem. Not as easily as my V8 Tundra did but adequately.
Trunk, tailgate, comfort, ride.
Please put a more durable truck like rear bumper to avoid dents when hooking up to a trailer. This is by far the worst feature of this vehicle. Also, I hate the annoying noises it makes when you fail to close the rear window or connect a seatbelt. Simply make the sounds more pleasant.
The Ridgeline is just a great all around vehicle, the engine is silky smooth with good power, a few more ponies would be good though. It has tons of storage inside and the in bed trunk is very cleaver. This is by far the best vehicle I have ever owned, fit and finish is perfect also. I have heard rumors of Honda building a diesel for this truck, can`t wait to drive one. Love this truck.
