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.
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 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.
