Getting firsthand information from an actual car owner is one sure way to get an idea of car performance once it leaves the lot. Autobytel features real consumer reviews that give the unbiased experience of a car.
Pros: Quality, fit, features and finish. Safety can't be ignored if you love your family.
Cons: I didn't like the design originally.... it grows on you.
Advice: Buy one at sticker if necessary.... Underpriced at 33K .What a stunner... At a sticker of 33 ( paid 29.5 ) this smokes the likes of Tundra which would have been priced at 41K at the same option level. A do-all, common sense, SAFE vehicle.
Pros: Big wheel
Advice: to buy if you want to collect many things to be stored in truck like car.I bought it last weekend, and it is kind of heavy and surprisingly quiet when I hit the gas pedal hard and it moved aggressive, and made very little noises. I noticed when I ignited the engine to start, it started up alittle slow and felt something weak inside the engine. I think the engine makes less noise and muted but it is strong I feel like I am driving v8 engine, and thanked 3.5l engine made me save money on gas anyway. Comfortable ride is nice! and I enjoy driving on rough roads..I like it very much!
Pros: smooth ride does not feel like a truck/nav you gotta have it...I LOVE IT
Cons: accecories are extra make the deal with them negotiate
Advice: navi a must..saved my marrige..trips are such a breez..no more paper maps buy a naviWow, what a truck. Only a v6, 255hp realy what more do you want? unless realy 4x4 is a thing for you. It rides like an accord smooth, not much noise, very roomy especialy the rear seats, by the way they fold up not down so they will not get dirty. A locking trunk in the bed. and a 5,000 lbs towing capacity. I have a seadoo and 2 quads a duble trailer. pulling 1 at a time feels like nothing,all at one time you could feel it little,but i tell you it has power it goes. think about it HONDA TRUCK it will last and it will keep it's value little pricey but worth every penny...
Pros: Trunk in the bed
Cons: Liked everything about it
Advice: Test drive all the mid sized trucks, you'll end up with a Ridgeline.Some say if you're going to buy a truck, buy a real truck. But do you really need that huge bed and gobs of horsepower? How many times are you going to use that 'real truck' for what it's intented for? For the average person the bed in the Ridgeline can hold plenty for what you'll need to haul, whether it be your ATV or some plywood from Home Depot. The ride it great, nice and tight and responsive. Compared to other trucks this one feels the most comfortable I've ever been in. Fold up rear seats and trunk in the bed are a couple of great features that you'll probably see more trucks coming out with in the future. Myself, I actually like the way the truck looks. Great buy!!
Pros: Trunk and sound system (my girls love it)
Advice: No worries mate, it's a Honda!I was eagerly awaiting this new Honda. It came it I was there, kinda ugly - until I drove it - what a beauty! I have owned 5 Honda's over the last 20 years, cummulative miles of 943,000, and will continue to drive nothing but. My first was a 76 CVCC and currently have a 97 CRV and a 2000 Odyssey. Will be getting a Ridgeline in January (avoiding our personal property taxes as long as I can), whilst keeping the CRV for teenager to drive - she is picking the new color (please not pink).
Pros: drives like a car
Cons: needs running boards to dress it up
Advice: shop dealers to get better deali had an avalanche and it drove like a tank. the ridgeline is nimble and gets better mpg (18 miles per gallon so far). the best part is the quality inside and out. i know this vehicle will last till the wheels fall off.
Advice: drive it you will love iti have owned a lot of trucks, but for the price of the honda ridgeline you can't go wrong.best truck i ever bought
