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.
2008 Honda RidgelineGrandpa1 - NC06/18/2010
Owned it two years plus a few months and like it more each day. Wife and I both enjoy driving it and the grandchildren love it. I tow a 3K pound boat with it frequently and it does fine. It is not suitable for a very heavy trailer, rated at 5k pound limit. Most surefooted vehicle I have ever driven in snow. It is not a replacement for those needing the capacity of a heavy duty pickup.
RTL trim level is a very comfortable vehicle. Ridiculous amounts of cargo space with under seat storage, bed, and trunk in bed. Proven to be a solid, durable, and reliable vehicle that costs little to maintain if routine maintenance is taken care of. Already has XM capabilities for 2007, but no auxiliary or Bluetooth included. Fuel economy is what you would expect from a truck, but not from a Honda. 14 mpg around town when gassing it, 17 if babying it, but I do get low 20s with highway hauls.
