    Anyone own a Honda Ridgeline?

    I am thinking about trading my GMC Envoy in on one. Sick of all the issues I am having with it. I am looking at a few used Ridgelines, test drove one, and I really like them. Just looking for some more reviews and opinions!

    I work in IT so its not like I need a work truck, I just would like a SUV for its nice ride and a pickup for its bed, and it seems like this is a nice mix. I plan on buying a few kayak's and a small flats boat in the future also so it would be perfect for that.

    Also, being in Florida it is always good to have a truck and something that can move a lot of stuff in case more hurricanes come.

    But the frugal side of me things possibly buying a used Prius/Hybrid Camry would be a good idea due to the fact I wouldn't hardly have to pay for much gas and save a lot of money that way. But there is no way I could have fun with those, and then we would have an Altima and Camry/Prius. Two low smallish cars.

    I have one and really like it. Design-wise the only thing I don't like about it is rear visibility when backing up, but it isn't a crisis if you're good with the mirrors.

    The trunk-in-the-bed is awesome, as is the dual action tailgate.

    It's very sure-footed on crappy roads, has plenty of power, and pretty decent gas mileage for what it is, I can get 18-19 driving hilly backroads between home and work.

    For our family, it was the perfect fit, since we need to haul kids/people 90% of the time, and only need a "truck" once in awhile.

    As long as you dont need a truck, the ridgeline is a pretty nice crossover with a truckish body style.

    I really don't need a truck. Just something that can move a moderate amount of stuff, be large enough to fit 4 adults, and be reliable :)

    One of my colleagues just bought one a few months ago and really likes it overall. He says Highway mileage isnt too bad but everyday stuff on the hills and backroads eats him up in fuel. That is pretty much all we have here in Southern WV. Like Sixto says...it is not a Truck's truck but will do mostly what an everyday user will need it to do.

    There are few bad things to say about any Honda product from push mowers to SUVs. Other than the already mentioned less-than-amazing MPG rating for a V6, the Ridgeline is a good value, good reliability/dependability, strong resale. It'll be tough to mess-up.

    I have heard many people on a Ridgeline board say they get 22-23 HWY and 16-17 city..Doesn't sound to bad to me..My buddy has an 09 Tundra and he gets 13 City and 17 HWY.

    It's not a Ridgeline, but my wife's daily driver is a CR-V, and it's a rock solid car.

    I highly recommend Honda.

    I just think the whole "get a real truck" response is hilarious. Sure, I am gonna want to fork over money for a truck that rides like crap, and can do way more then I need it to, while losing a ton of value since American cars hold their value terribly..

    I don't have a Honda Ridgeline, though my wife does a commute in a Civic, and it has been excellent. Ours is a 4 cyl non-hybrid and gets 37 mpg on the Interstate. I'm not convinced yet that a hybrid is a actually a good buy.

    I typically drive a F-250 power stroke because I often pull a gooseneck cow trailer, and that weight would overwhelm anything smaller.

    Honda Ridgeline had one of my favorite commercials though:
