All around, a great vehicle. I had never owned a truck prior to buying my used Ridgeline, as my prior vehicles have been of the high or ultra high performance coupe or sedan variety, and I have racing experience. Performance for the average driver should be more than adequate (top speed is limited to 120), it rides very smooth for a truck, and the fuel economy is fine given it has a drag coefficient of The Vatican combined with substantial mass. I wish these had been available back when my 10 year old was born!
In-Bed Trunk, versatility, great safety rating, decent gas mileage for what it is, hidden/"Easter Egg" features, airbags galore, tons of storage cubbyholes, kids love the back sliding window & the view, awesome A/C system.
My other vehicle has auto headlights and I guess I'm too used to them; this would be a handy feature. Also, although not a huge deal, I wish the truck sat about 2" higher stock for a wee bit more ground clearance, but Truxxx makes a lift kit for it.
