3500 miles so far - what a great truck! I needed a truck for home improvement and light offroad duty for hunting. Had to fit 3 kids in the back seat (with car seats and boosters). The Ridgeline had the most interior room of any mid-size truck I could find and I loved the ride and handling! I don't use it for work and don't tow anything so a full size truck is just overkill.
Gas mileage is on par for a truck, though, ranging from 14 - 21 with an overall of under 18 with a fair amount of highway travel.
Safety features are really impressive. The odd four-wheel drive (VTM-4) took some time to wrap my brain around (it's really rear wheel assisted front wheel drive) but I can't complain about the performance on slick roads. The ABS has worked great as has the stability control.
Handling is in another league compared with the other trucks I drove. It doesn't handle like a truck, which is perfect for me. Nice smooth ride, limited body roll, and good, although slightly heavy, steering. Limited nose dive under heavy braking and good acceleration.
