If you're looking for the utility of a truck with the ride of a sedan you've found the right vehicle. It's comfortable handles well, acceleration is more than adequate, has great visibility, and gas mileage is good for a vehicle of this size. Interior is spacious, having plenty of, leg, shoulder, and head room for all 5 occupants. Controls are well placed and made of quality materials. Side airbags all around, brake assist, and stability control standard. Its hard to beat this vehicle's list of features for the price. Simply put, a great vehicle.
In bed trunk, rear fold up seat, center console, standard safety features, Honda quality and reliability, maintenance minder, exterior design (looks like nothing else on the road), comfortable seats, and good handling.
A bed liner that hides scratches better, a standard towing package on all models (not just the RTX). I'd like to see a "long bed" Ridgeline. I'd also like to see all Hondas with the option of Sirius Satellite radio in addition to XM but that is really a compliant for a different audience :-) .
