My 2008 Lexus RX350 AWD with Nav depreciated more in price than my 2008 Honda Ridgeline RTL did in 4 years. The Ridgeline is pretty overpriced from the get-go, but it sure does retains it's value compared to virtually every truck on the market. I loved the Ridgeline, then I bought it. The gas consumption is very awful for a non full size truck. The leather is very hard and cracks very easily. I am very gentle on my vehicles and only weigh 140 lbs and lived in Northern California and my leather seat was already showing signs of severe wear at 50k miles. The blind spots are pretty bad. The plastic feels very cheap, but it is at least super easy to clean. The ride is okay, but the wind noise is pretty audible. The navigation is a joke and not worth the extra money. Honda uses the lamest navigation systems I have ever seen in a vehicle. The only reasons I have kept the Ridgeline is because it is the safest truck out there (after you install back up camera & sensors), it handles very well on snow (drove from Sacramento to Anchorage in January), the steering is very responsive, and the lockable trunk + foldable rear seats actually add a substantial amount of cargo space. The cheap interior, the obvious cost cutting throughout, and awful gas mileage will, however, always make you second guess your decision.
A GREAT EXPERIENCE

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.
There are times when everyone needs a pickup truck, whether it’s hauling furniture home from the garden center or moving lumber around a construction site. Pickups are both practical and fun, and it can be tempting to buy one that’s bigger than you need. But if you’re searching for compact and mid-sized used trucks for sale, you may well find yourself comparing the Toyota Tacoma and the Honda Ridgeline.
