It was named North American truck of the year.http://www.drivecny.com/Global/story.asp?S=4430841I heard it's very good.They say it's built more for the road than it is off-road, though. I guess if you were doing a lot of off-roading that would mean there are better trucks out there for that. But as far as overall performance, the Ridgeline is among the best in its class.

I know somebody who got one. He was really upbeat about it. When he got it, he didn't find that it met up to the hype. After 2 years he's going back to his Chev. It wasn't even that good on fuel, like he expected from a Honda. He uses his trucks like a truck though. I think as a truck used like a car it would be up to the task.

It's a chick truck, look at the bed how the heck is a guy going to load stuff from the side. And I'm not sure if they changed this yet but either the spare tire release or the spare tire is located in the trunk in the bed... so if your hauling a load of mulch or stone in the bed your screwed if you get a flat. They are all about looks and they just can't measure up to a good ol' American truck.

I agree that Honda's make great on-road cars and mini SUV's. But they really don't know SHIT about 4x4. Personally, go with a tahoe or the vehicle Honda copied, the avalanche. If you want great off road performance, go with american trucks. The Jap Automakers lost their touch. Actually, that reminds me, the only Jap auto maker that finally got some sence knocked into them, and they finally got some respect from me, is toyota with the new FJ Cruiser. That thing really can go just about anywhere. Ive driven one is some real slop and it got through STOCK. so needless to say just about anything is better than a ridgeline!!Good Luck!
