Although Honda says this is a truck it rides like a car! I wanted a vehicle that I could use as 99% travel and that occasional 1% to haul things to the dump or transport larger items than what would fit in the back of my SUV - the Ridgeline answers it all.
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.
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.
