I love everything about the Ridgeline. Before purchasing the Ridgeline, I owned a Toyota Tundra but found it was just too big and mine had problems with rust in the truck bed. Unless you need 10,000 pounds of towing incapacity the Ridgeline is a great medium-size truck. It drives more like a car and is easier to park and see what is just in front of you. I love the in-bed trunk and the composite bed that will not rust. The seats that pop up rather than folding down make it easier to transport items in the cab. It also gets much better gas mileage than the tundra. I looked at the 2016 Ridgelines before buying the 2014 and must say that I am very happy with the older model.
If you want a work truck with high towing capacity, look elsewhere. If you want a vehicle that gets high gas mileage or is very quick off the line, also look elsewhere. However, if you want a vehicle that is very comfortable, handles well, is easy to drive, and has most of the utility of a double cab "real" pickup, this is an overall great choice. In recent years my wife and I have owned, aside from various sedans, a Toyota 4Runner, a V6 RAV4, a Nissan Murano. Of all of these, the fell of the Ridgeline is closest to the Murano; however, subjectively, the Ridgeline feels more solid than the Murano. My wife, who has a bad back thinks it's more comfortable than the Murano and a lot more comfortable than the 4Runner or RAV4. others. (There is a bit of an apples to oranges aspect to these comparisons.) I track gas mileage pretty carefully. I averaged about 17 mpg in the 4Runner and about 20 mpg in both the Murano and RAV4 (the RAV4's mpg was a big disappointment.) In the Ridgeline, so far, doing exactly the same driving as in the other vehicles, I'm averaging a bit under 19 mpg. Would I like a bit more power, yes. Would I like a bit better gas mileage, yes. But I knew what I was buying with regard to power and mpg. Overall, I am much happier than I expected to be with the Ridgeline. To me, it's surprising it isn't more popular.
Have enjoyed Honda Ridgeline. Good driving. Spacious interior. Wish seats were a little more softer. Have been wanting to purchase this truck for a while and am glad it has come to be.
