Honda's initial shot at producing a truck was a huge success. The truck's in bed trunk is huge and the dual action tailgate is extremely helpful. Although the exterior of the vehicle is quite conservative, it's functionality makes it a step above domestic and foreign rivals. The interior is quite comfortable and did a fairly good job at dampening road noise. The back seat is very big...plenty of room for three adults and when the seats are lifted, reveals another huge cargo area. The power rear window is great at getting fresh air in the cabin without getting wind turbulence. I was very impressed with the quality of the 160 watt sound system.
Cargo Options: Huge in bed trunk, cargo lights for bed and lifted rear seats. Dual action tailgate. Surprising good sound system, minimal wind noise from sunroof (compared to wife's 05 Pilot), power rear window, lighted audio/C.C. on steering wheel, comfortable seating for five.
The Ridgeline has a huge blind spot; if the design doesn't change, would recommend making back-up sensors standard on RTL model. The aluminum accents on door handles/around controls are impossible to keep clean... fingerprints & smudges galore;I recommend sticking to good old fashion leather handles
