Overall a good vehicle. I just have a continuous noise from the "dash" area on the right side. The dealership had the truck for three weeks trying to solve the noise. They removed the windshield, tore apart the dash, passenger A pillar. Nothing worked. Regional rep came heard the noise and said "Normal for a truck. It is result of body flex." I have owned over 20 vehicles and never had this noise--even in a car you could see flex. Result is Honda will do nothing for me. Dealership I feel really tried to help.
Nice comfortable ride, good gas mileage for a truck.
I had an OJ Simpson 1995 Bronco for a little over 10 years. It was reliable, drank gasoline like a thirsty boozer and rode like a vehicle from hell re lack of comfort. I'm retired, fly fish, pull small boats, go off road as well as drive in town and local trips. Ride is good. The grandkids love to ride in and prefer it over my wife's Lexus. The mileage has been a disappointment with an average of about 16 per tank. I normally beat the estimated mileage, not here. The lack or real off road under vehicle protection is a pain. Apparently, that is due to the Honda lawyers. The vehicle hauls everything we have needed to haul. The lockable trunk in the bed is great. Buy one
The ride and the sure footedness of the AWD are superb. Tailgaters not paying attention to their speed on curves soon back off as I seldom hit the brakes. The AWD does a good job on river beds. Next lower range is good. Lockable trunk holds/hides expensive fly rods, reels, lines. and other gear.
Paint is worthless on an off road vehicle. Grass and leaves scratch the surface. Lack of real off road under truck protection is a pain. Apparently Honda lawyers are to blame re no aftermarket. Backing up is tough re poor vision. Vehicles need a back up tv system. Doors autolocking stink
I bought my Ridgeline in July and have not been able to pick up radio stations in my area. Dealership has changed antenna modular and the cable. Now they are trying the radio. I love this truck but not the radio. I must have gotten a lemon. The best feature is the trunk in the bed.
Trunk in bed.
Better wheels, better gas mileage and improve radio.
Bought this truck after considering FJ Cruiser. Gave up some off road capability for much better comfort, convenience & safety. Superb tailgating, car camping & overall family vehicle. Handles anything 99% of owners will throw at it. First Honda I've ever driven, & I'm very impressed with the overal quality & design. Unibody provides solid ride on highway & rough roads. Like driving a bank vault. Excellent braking and decent cornering for a vehicle this weight and size. Averaging about 18mpg with mixed highway/city driving & less than 5K miles. Bed scratches white, but a $75 bed mat took care of that problem. Will take other reviewers advice & get rear mud guards.
Build quality; Interior room & comfort; Storage under fold down rear seats perfect for fishing rods; Solid, comfortable ride; Ugly or cool, doesn't look like anything else; First thought trunk was gimmicky but it's roomy and convenient.
Unique non-cookie cutter looks, in-bed trunk, dual-action tailgate, roomy and comfortable interior, very smooth quiet ride, nice stereo with sub- woofer. So glad I spent a bit more and bought another Honda!
Safety features everywhere you look. Low emissions vehicle.
Improved MPG. Maybe hybrid or diesel in the very near future.
