After driving minivans for the past ten years I decided to move up to a truck. Although not a truck guy in the traditional sense, I wanted the utility of a bed for those weekend beach runs and a comfortable rear seat for my three kids. I got both in the Ridgeline. Plus it's smooth, quiet and fun.
The in-bed trunk is just brilliant! I can fit two full sets of golf clubs and accessories in the trunk. During the winter, it easily accommodates my son's extra large hockey bag and skates. Power sliding rear window is a nice touch.
Cruise control switch is a pain getting to. Steering wheel is to close to the dash. Needs telescopic steering wheel. Honda accessories are ridiculously expensive (hitch, bed cover, etc).
