This is not much to refute that, but at the Honda new owners get together at
my dealer, they were very happy/excited about the record the Ridgeline has
so far.

I love the concept, but think it is about 2-4K too expensive and the
bed is a little short.

I would buy a Pilot instead of a Ridgeline.

Thinking about buying one..Its either this or a Sport Trac.. Is there any
reason for the rumours ?(Reliability, Sales) It seems a very nicely put
together truck and suits us nicely.The Dakota feels too plastic and the
Canyon, Frontier and Toyota are too small in the rear seat.

Have you ever owned a Honda before? If you've only ever owned
'domestics', you'll probably be so happy you'll wonder what took you so
long. It will probably last forever or until some idiot slides through a
stop sign and hits you.

No this is our first import but I`m well aware of the longevity of Hondas.
Price is the only problem as the Honda seems about 3 0r $4000 more than GM
and the Fords. As I said, the only other we`re looking at is the Sport Trac.

Guy I work with had owned two SportTracs in a row and was going for a third
just two months ago. He was quite surprised when the dealer wouldn't haggle
at all on the prices so he ended up with a Dodge Ram Club Cab. I don't know
he even looked at a Honda, but see if your dealers will haggle on prices.

I bought one in February, 2006. Absolutely love the truck, tough as nails,
rides and handles beautifully. Magazine says due to so-so sales. I would buy
another and hope they continue to build it.

Jeff: Get the Honda. For the extra three or four grand, it will last
three or four or more years than the Sport Trac. It's also a lot
safer...which is usually the cause for the price increase. Sport Tracs
roll over very easily (I know from experience...) and, while the
initial cost isn't as high as the Ridgeline, if you get it high in
miles repairs get expensive also.

I'd go with the Honda. It's bigger, safer, and more reliable.
