Great room, well laid out.
Power back window is so cool.
Love the in bed trunk. And it is lockable/unlockable with the keyless remote.
Great ride, very comfortable. And you can get 5 people in the truck.
Warning: mountain bike will not fit in the cab as advertised. Very disappointing. Am I doing something wrong here??? The cab isn't as wide as the bike is long, so don't know what else I could do...
Took a trip to the mountains, got a "real world" MPG of 21.84 MPG. Well over 400 miles on 1 tank. Since it's rated at 15cty/20hwy, that's pretty good! Around town, not so much, but never below 15. My average has been 17-18 MPG's. But be careful with the gas pedal.
Service at my local Honda dealership has been fantastic, of course, all I've had is an oil change since my purchase.
-- GET THE HONDA FOG LIGHT KIT on your Ridgeline. It costs about $500, money very well spent. Looks very cool on the truck, and the extra light is nice on dark nights. Google Ridgeline pictures to see.
Truck could use some more power but the 5 speed automatic does a good job with the V6. The 2009 models get some cosmetic upgrades, about 5 more hp, that's about it. Really needs more torque. No word on a V8 or diesel yet. Of course 247 hp in a v-6 is nothing to sneeze at.
The Nav system is pretty cool, but expensive. I passed on it since I have a portable system.
I think it's the only front wheel drive based truck on the market. Yes it has automatic 4 wheel drive, but the primary drive is front wheel drive.
Truck bed will scratch VERY easily. It won't hurt it, but it shows every scratch.
Dual action tailgate should be standard on all trucks. It is sooo cool!
I like the styling, who cares what anybody else thinks. It's way different, that's why I wanted it!
Get the RTL if you can swing it. Heated leather seats, sunroof, etc... Very nice.
