2006 RL review in 2010 (SE Texas)
By new tx RL owner on
Vehicle2006 Honda Ridgeline RTL 4dr Crew Cab 4WD SB w/Moonroof, XM, Nav (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
ReviewSince 1993, owned trucks from all the big 3. Took chance and got this one with 72K miles. 1 month later and very pleased. 20mpg on a 250 mile trip to S TX coast this wk, 17+ overall so far. Great AWD system. Passed up a Chevy T-blazer stuck in sand this morning up to axle. (yes I helped him out, thank you tow rope) Held my breath driving through 50 yards or so of soft lose sand to get to it but it went through like butter where 2wd's parked and hiked to beach. Great in mud at family ranch too. Will take this hunting. My weekend veh. Plan to keep it 10 yrs Funny, some people on truck sites get sensitive if you call this a 'truck' so so just call it a Swiss-Army Knife Utility Vehicle
Best Features1.cab storage (lots of cubbyholes, etc) 2.water tight trunk 3.Great, practical AWD system 4.Tailgate & cargo bed lights 5.Leather, Nav system, Sunroof is nice 6.Rear seat comfort better than other mid-size trucks. 7.Impressed my rancher uncle on cattle trodden mud road 8.Looks grow on you 9.Ride
Worst Features1.Why no full size spare standard? 2.Spare in truck is kind of goofy (will probably buy full size tire and put in rack/cage on top or in bed when bed is loaded down) 3.Bed is small-ish, but same size as other mid-size 5 ft beds (6 ft bed would be nice) 4.More traditional 'truck like' looks.
