RTL Vs Tacoma
By Jack Lewis on
Vehicle2008 Honda Ridgeline RTL 4dr Crew Cab 4WD SB (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
ReviewOnly had my RTL for about a week, but it was a good choice. I drove a 2004 Tacoma, 4 door, Pre-runner, V6 (3.4)2 wheel drive. I read from some that the RTL has a large turning radius. Every try to turn a Taco around on a regular street? Can you say 3 pointer!! The Taco was a great truck, reliable, rock solid, but it no creature comforts standard. Manual seats, absolutely no storage in the cab, cramped rear seats, a crappy ride and over all cramped feeling, wimpy A/C and expensive to maintain. The Taco also got 17 MPG, uphill, downhill, city and hi-way! The Ridgeline beats the Taco in all areas, hand down. Plus it's cheaper from the get-go. Honda got it right! Ford/GM not even close!
Best FeaturesRear trunk, comfort, fit and finish second to none. Heated leather seats. Honda reliability at a good price. Gobs of interior storage and no annoying hump!
Worst FeaturesMain cruise control too low on dash. Clock in radio too small to see. Standard towing hitch. Auto-dim rear view mirror.
