Unless you intend to off-road, the Ridgeline is pretty much perfect. The ride is smooth, quiet, and refined. The engine won't kill you with acceleration, but it's better than adequate. Inside materials and design are amazing. Safety features abound. Perfect for long road trips, daily commuting, and everything in between. Gas mileage is better than expected-- 18 in mixed city/freeway, up to 22 or 23 on road trips. Only complaint is that the exterior is very susceptible to dings-- the paint/body hardware could probably use some reinforcement. People who review this automobile poorly probably have never been in one.
In bed trunk. Back seats fold up to provide cavernous room, enough to fit my mountain bike. Every safety feature imaginable. Front seat storage compartments hold everything.
Make the tow hitch and XM standard. Bed scratches easily. Paint seems to be scratch-prone. Make day-time running lights standard. These are minor points: amazing automobile.
