As a former Honda Owner, I was already sold on the brand name - I think they're the best cars on the road. The Ridgeline is no exception. It drives more like a car. I knocked one star off on the performance category - the V6 at times is slightly underpowered, but I also don't need a heavy duty work truck, so it's not a big issue.
The interior room is awesome! It has all the toughness of a truck with the smooth ride of a mini van. It does fantastic in the snow. Also, it's really nice to be able to lay 4x8 sheets of wood or whatever in the bed and they actually lay FLAT....not leaning up against the wheel wells. The extra storage under the bed is very convenient as well. I hope to have this for a long time, but my 18 year old is wanting a vehicle soon, so we'll see.
It has all the amities I want in a truck. Actually built on a Car chassis, it feels like a car. I use it for going hunting, camping and long trips.
The Navigation and back up camera are very helpful getting into and out unchartered territories. Plenty of room for my hunting buddies to go along for the ride. Pulls a trailer for extra camping accessories for everyone. This is my third Ridgeline and will probably get another in the future.
