Satisfied 08 Ridgeline owner by Gary from Mo on 04/11/2013. Trim: 2008 Honda Ridgeline RTL, Owned 2 years.
Pros: Handling & ride are great,much better than I expected,even from a vehicle with independent suspension. The 3.5 v6 moves the truck quite well,no problems whatsoever merging into highway traffic,even with 3-4 hundred pounds of weight in the box.Speaking of the box,it seems to be larger that it appears,after hauling furniture,(sofas included,& not hanging over the tailgate by much)& various other things one would generally use a pickup for. Seats are comfy,rear headroom & legroom are sufficient for anyone under 6'7. The AWD/FWD system works very well,even in 6-10" of snow;the truck just plows right through it,with very little slippage. Just wished Honda made a full-size truck.
Cons: Rear visibility is not great,but comes with the body style.There are blind spots right behind the rear windows,but this can be overcome with prudence,caution & the addition of convex mirrors to the rear-views. Yes I know it's a AWD/FWD system in essentially a 1/2 ton truck, but gas mileage could be a bit better.
Overall review: Overall,a great truck;I was just blown away with the ride & handling;definitely not what I was expecting.Price is a bit high,but I would buy another one.I can't say that about the last 2 trucks I've owned.(One blue oval & one goat head) Just make sure to maintain it well,keeping in mind the every 60,000 mile timing belt change & the every 30,000 mile transmission fluid change,on top of oil changes,& any other required maintenance.
