I moved to the mountains and needed a vehicle that would handle the mountain roads in all weather conditions. I wanted the comfort, passenger capacity, and drive of a car, but needed the storage provided by a truck. I can only have one vehicle. The Honda Ridgeline is the perfect vehicle for me.
The Honda Ridgeline has a uni-body construction meaning the cab and bed are one piece rather than separate attached pieces. So, it drives like a car. It seats 5 people comfortably. It is 4 wheel/all wheel drive, so it handles all types of road conditions beautifully. It is a mid-size truck, so parking is not a problem. I like the well-lit, easy-to-read dashboard display.
My favorite feature? Honda designed this truck so that the bed is elevated above the wheel wells. So, when you put things in the bed of the truck, the wheel wells don't get in the way. This leads me to my favorite part. Because the bed is raised, there is a full-sized lockable trunk that doubles as a cooler in the bed of the truck!
It is a safe, reliable, car/truck combination.
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.
