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.
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)
The Honda Ridgeline is a slightly larger than compact pickup that rides like a mid level or higher SUV. It has smooth comfortable ride, quick responsive handling and the gas mileage is very respectable for a truck (17 MPG in my case). The cargo bay is very flexible with plenty of cabin room and easy to use controls. My only critiques would be that my 08 doesn't have Bluetooth or a back up camera or senors which would be nice. I would recommend this vehicle to anyone that wants the flexibility of a pickup but the handling and ride of an SUV.
