Reviews for 2008 Honda Ridgeline
1st Honda truck
This is my third truck, but my first Honda truck and my first 4-wheel drive vehicle. The Ridgeline is by far the most comfortable truck I've ever ridden in. It is very smooth and quiet on the highway, and on the not-so-smooth roads, it absorbs bumps quite well. Having essentially 2 back-to-back snowstorms in our area this year, my first experience with 4-wheel drive was a very pleasant one! The Ridgeline handles snow (deep snow) very well. My only complaint is that the truck gets less MPG than the manufacturer estimate. I was expecting 20 mpg on highway...actual mpg for a 4 hour highway trip: 17.5 mpg. Perhaps not that bad... Another issue, which may be a sign that maintenance is required, is that the transmission appears to surge when driving 45mph. The transmission appears to not fully engage over-drive and waffles between overdrive and the lower gear while on straight and level, smooth pavement at 45mph. Slowing down to 40 or speeding up to 50 the surging goes away. I wish the truck had a tighter turning radius. Still getting used to parking. Overall satisfaction: 4.5
A GREAT EXPERIENCE
I did the research.
Great If You Dont Need a Work Truck
I always bought Silverados every couple of years. I didn't need a work truck, but liked to haul something once in a while, have 4 wheel drive and never liked SUVs. We have a MiniVan and this. With three kids, either vehicle works and I can carry several sheets of plywood, a motorcycle, furniture from IKEA, etc. etc. If I need to haul a boat or move 2000 LBs of bricks, I'll call a friend with his F-350. I really like this vehilcle. It drives great, is comfortable and feels nice, stiff, stable. I couldn't be happier...except for the gas mileage. (15 MPG in town, 20 HWY is the best I have ever gotten)
