I looked at every crew cab on the market before settling on the Ridgeline RTL. After driving a Scion XB for the last 6 years, I really wanted a truck, and needed something that would comfortably seat me, my wife, and our three boys. I didn't want a huge beast like the full-size offerings from the big three automakers because I have to drive downtown quite a bit and the Tacoma, Frontier, and Colorado/Canyon were all a bit small. I settled on the Ridgeline, and have no regrets.
I love the trunk space and all the storage compartments in the cab. I wish my truck had an integrated backup camera, but other than that, it has everything I would want as far as amenities goes. It doesn't get great fuel mileage, but it does score as advertised - combined averages about 19 MPG for me.
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.
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.
