Very nice, but some things could be improved.
The ride, stability, noise level, and fuel economy are very good. The plastic lined bed is much better than the painted steel on most trucks, although the bed is shallow. I’m not much a fan of pickups, but the dual acting tailgate and locking trunk sold me on the Ridgeline. The sound quality from the base model radio is poor. Climate control is good. Driver entry for feet is tight due to protruding skirt on seat base, but once in, the seating is quite comfortable. The transmission is smooth but a serious shortcoming is that you can’t lock it into fifth gear for towing. It either hunts between 4, 5, and 6, or you can lock it into fourth, which revs too high. For towing, the fuel tank is way too small, limiting practical range to 250 miles. Available colors are typical boring Honda choices. After 2017, AWD is not available on RT, and the RTS trim went away. I’m pleased with my ‘17 AWD RTS, but with the ‘18 and ‘19 trim level choices, I’d probably pass on the Ridgeline
