Wanted to tow my Harley in style
By Russ Kubik on
Vehicle2008 Honda Ridgeline RTL 4dr Crew Cab 4WD SB (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
ReviewI was looking for a compact pickup to do some light towing, some low-stress off-road stuff and Home Depot for plywood or fertilizer. This RTL is the ultimate fusion of a luxury car and a utililitarian truck. The fit/finish is impeccable. The lockable bed trunk is amazing. No more cranking down the spare from underneath the bed if you have a flat. It's on a slide out tray in the bed trunk. Easier to get to than most car spares. Interior is well thought out from cup holders to flip up rear seats which yield plenty of room for 2 yellow labs in comfort. Only knock is blind spot caused by those "wings." Other than that, well, it's a Honda so you know the reliability will be there.
Best FeaturesOverall Honda quality of fit and finish, locking bed trunk, fold up rear seats, composite bed liner (the best!), on demand 4-WD (idiot proof).
Worst FeaturesDo something about the rearward blind spot caused by those "wings;" maybe a small V-8.
