Awesome! Owned one for over three years now and it's incredibly versatile, dependable and handles very well. The CRV chassis it's built on is also one of Honda's best (check Consumer Reports). Only problem: the windshield can crack due to improperly placed mounting bolts. Dealer will replace it for free.

I truly loved our 2003. I had to get a truck and I was heartbroken! It ran great, was comfortable. I wish I hadn't gotten the stick - no advantage on fuel economy. The seats are comfortable, the stereo is great, visibility is super & it's very easy to drive.My only other complaints were the windshield is a magnet for rocks and it only has 4 seatbelts. One other caveat is it has a very low payload limit. We overloaded it regularly with no problems, but I was always mystified why a vehicle that handy had such a puny payload limit.Other than that it was a terrific vehicle. I highly recommend it.

Leased and loving my '05. The '06 is looking sweet too. Drives very well...quiet, quick and nimble. 165 hp--4 cyl. quick enough and great on gas. Deceivingly roomy..especially the head room. Someone 6ft 5in...no problem. Fits everything from home depot and cleans up in a jiffy. Don't get it if you're towing..not a good choice. Other than that...enjoy the ride!

My sister just got one. In all honesty, it's the first ugly Honda. I guess Honda got caught up in all the Nissan's Exterra campaign to attract young and active demographic and conjured up this Frankenstein. If I had a choice, I would definitely get a Ridgeline for utility purpose or the new Toyota FJ Cruiser. However, this is my own opinion and owners may have a different point of view or they would have never bought one! I am giddy with my Honda S2000!! Just enough space for my golf bag and my date.
