2011 Honda RidgelineJunk in my Truck - , 05/31/2013
It's a Honda. End of story.
The hidden in-bed trunk...brilliant. I have not loved a vehicle in a number of years and I am happy to report that the Ridgeline has won me over. Great looking, comfortable, lots of space for people, pets and stuff. Love the dual function tailgate.
This truck is everything I thought it would be and more. Purchased this 2011 with only 4k miles from CarMax. Very comfortable and roomy. Very sturdy. Yes it's a truck but it rides like a big car/SUV. 6 cylinder engine provides very good acceleration. Turning radius perhaps a bit longer than an SUV but not noticeable. I really like the secure trunk / storage area underneath the bed. Climate control is excellent and even includes vents in the console for the rear passenger seat. Rear seat flips up for additional storage. The bed is short (5 ft) but that is expected when you have a crew cab - length seems to be adequate for everything that I put in the bed. Gas mileage around 18mpg which is about what I expected. Sound system is excellent and I really enjoy my XM Satellite Radio. Dual plugs in the dash provide plenty of opportunity to power my phone, GPS unit, etc. Wish it had a USB connector like my CRV but the Aux connection works just fine. Will probably add pipes/running boards as it is a little further to step down than my car. However, the step is not too high without running boards.
