2008 Honda Ridgeline Crew Cab RTS 4dr Crew Cab 4WD SB (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I have enjoyed this vehicle overall and recommend it. No, it is not overly powerful, but it does have enough power to do what I need it to. No, it is not overly roomy, but it does have a lot of functional space when configured that way. No, it is not a looker, but there are worse. You WILL be able to fit it in a garage, move moderate sized trailers easily at 55-60 mph. You will also get about an average of 16 miles/gal overall. I have gotten up to 23 (once) and as low as 12 (many times) in the winter. You can fit 5 smaller people comfortably. Not if they are over 200 lbs and 6 ft tall. It is a truck that is not great at anything but good at everything.


Favorite Features

They max the usable storage space. The under bed trunk is a masterpiece. All trucks should do that. The ride is pretty smooth, a lot like a car, less like a truck. The absolute maximum vehicle size for a 10x18 single garage. It is tight but fits.


Suggested Improvements

Tranny shifts back and forth from 5th-4th-5th etc. against ANY wind resistance or hill (annoying). The windshield wipers can't be moved out to clean out snow. The hood blocks them. You have to start car, wipers on, turn car off when wipers at the top to clean out snow (annoying). MPG disappointing.

Review

I've owned my ridgeline for 9 months now. Test drove the Tundra but wasn't about to drop $32k on something that didn't have all the options I wanted. The RTS model had everything I wanted and needed. Wife loves driving it and handles great in the Seattle area snow and year round rain!! Traded in my '05 Civic for this and couldn't be happier.


Favorite Features

Stereo system is great! Steering wheel controls are great. In-bed trunk has been a god send!


Suggested Improvements

Better gas mileage, heated mirrors on RTS model and rear defrost would be nice!

Review

Overall, this is the best car/truck I have owned and driven for a person who has owned and driven 50 plus cars. It is practical in regard to doing a variety of things really well. It is very solid and safe with 5 star ratings. It tows well with an excellent tranny match. It has good off road ability in the sense that if you are not looking to get stuck you won't. It rides like a car. My only real complaint is that it is short on after market options.

Review

I bought this truck three weeks ago and I love it! It handles and looks great. I like the it drives and the smooth ride, more like a car than a pickup.


Favorite Features

The interior setup and trunk in the bed (great idea). I also love the radio in this truck, sounds great! The cloth is made of top quality material and the color (brown) want show dirt easily.


Suggested Improvements

Telescoping steering wheel and the MPG could be better.

Review

Former 04 Nissan Titan, considering Toy Tundra, but this was more practical. Cheaper, what a deal!, Fun to drive, gave me more space in the garage. Now well have more fun, distance to cover at lower cost.


Favorite Features

18.24 mpg on first half tank, automatic 4x4! lots of space inside and back, lockable trunk, two way to open back door, instruments layout, power back window, smoooooth ride for a truck, folding back seat. The whole family loves this truck.


Suggested Improvements

Rear view mirror auto dim light and compass would be great.
