This is the most enjoyable truck I've owned. To the point my own father is thinking of getting one for himself. Consider he's a loyal GMC fan. Anyhow I'm in the military and its a dream to drive, it reminds you of driving a car. But you have to convince yourself your in a 4x4. Take one on a test drive and you be the judge.
Love the navigation, I compare all Ridgelines to either have one or not. Everyone I've talked to that does own this type of Honda hasn't regretted it.
A telescoping steering wheel would greatly improve. Also, to switch from 4 wheel drive to 2 wheel would help on fuel economy.
