My Wife and I bought this because our 2003 Sonoma extended cab proved too small for our needs. After looking at a number of offerings, and both of us DRIVING them, the Ridgeline stood out as the best handling, and it had a trunk! Add the stylish and very comfortable interior, two way tailgate, AWD,and HONDA reliability, it was a no brainer. After 15,000 miles, 3 synthetic oil changes and a K&N filter...19.4 in town, 25.5 highway (spirited driving). Prior to these changes, we got 15.2 in mixed driving. You will use the trunk more than you think. Go give it a look, a drive and with end of year pricing a great deal too.
Leather interior with supportive seats, HUGE Trunk locks and seals, 2 way tailgate, protected Spare tire,room for ADULTS front and rear, excellent handling, and performance, value for dollar spent.
Would like a 6 speed transmission, a bit better gas mileage, 8 way power seats for both front seats.
