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


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.

Best 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.

Worst Features

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.
