2009 Honda Ridgeline

- Great ride. handles rough pavement very well.
- Gas mileage, No telescoping steering wheel
Purchased As New
Really love the truck. Not a great looker but hey not everyone looks like a super model. Great ride and handles well. Quiet and has all the amenities except the lack of a telscoping steering wheel. That is anoying. At that price there should have been one. Also the clock is located on the radio and is a dull grey. it is hard to see. They should have had it where the temperature listing is. There are so many ways to change the radios stations and volume it could get confusing. I am averaging about 17 miles per and I don't drive real fast. The truck should get better mileage since the power is good but now that good that you would sacrifice that much mileage....read morehide

i bought my Ridgeline RTLw/Nav in 2006 and have never regretted it. It's ride is superior. I have over 60K miles and other than routine maintenance have NEVER had a problem. This is more than I can say for any US car ever owned!!!!! It's quite and I love to drive it.

Last year, we bought an RT base truck and loved it. Only put 4600 miles on it but decided to trade up to th 2009 RTL with navi. I love this truck. It is so comfortable, looks great, and is fun to drive. You would never know it is 4 wheel drive; the ride is smooth and comfortable. Since I am very short, I love the tailgate opening sideways. It makes it easy to get stuff in and out of the trunk. The back seat is comfortable for a couple of hours and it is so well designed!
We are a honda/acura family and always wanted Honda to make a truck. When the Ridgeline first came out, we felt it was a bit expensive. However, when we bought ours, both last year and this, we got great deals and have not been disappointed....read morehide

Can't tell you how much I LOVE THIS TRUCK. The ride is beautiful. The handling is awesome and the steering is perfectly wieghted. The engine is so smooth, so is the ride and transmission. One of me favorite things about this truck is the transmission. Its one of the smartest transmission in the world, it holds the right gear going up hills without you giving it more gas it just seems to know your going up hill no gear hunting, and when going down hills it down shifts to hold your speed and down shifts to assist with braking when coming to a stop how smart is that? Honda really put some thought into the Ridgeline and it shows. Quality throughout, and the ride couldn't be improved it really is as good as it gets for a 4500.lbs vehicle, really. I would buy another one in a heart beat. People are always stopping me and asking questions about it, it really draws attention. The in bed trunk has gotten more use than I would have ever thought it's huge and it make so much sense. I just LOVE my Ridgeline!...read morehide

- Low sound noise, driving thru snow, Bluetooth, Navigation, comfortable ride, lockable in-bed trunk
- MPG (It is just average)
Purchased As New
I own the new 2009 model - RTL with nav. The ride is extremely comfortable (nearly as good as my 2006 Acura TL). It handles snow with no problems and hauls items with ease. A backup camera is included in the 09 RTL w/ nav. The sunroof is also included in this trim level. The in-bed lockable trunk is awesome - waterproof and large (only the Ridgeline has this feature). Bluetooth is now included in the 09 RTL w/ Nav and works great. I have received many compliments on the truck and believe it is very sharp looking (new front end design). It does get between 16 and 18 MPG (I haven't fully broken it in yet) - 20+ on the highway. I was able to get my 09 RTL w/ Nav for $30,574 - so an extremely good value given the MSRP of $37K. I have had no issues with the truck thus far - albeit a new vehicle. I'd always recommend the extended warranty (especially if you are like me and want to keep the car 10+ years or 150K+ miles).
Bottom line - if you are looking for an extremely comfortable ride (leather heated seats, four full size doors, all the amenities of my 06 Acura TL!) and don't need to haul the Titanic - the Ridgeline is probably for you. It can haul a good sized load and you'll be riding in safety backed by Honda....read morehide

- Seats, cabin space,
- interior noise, fuel economy, price, service, exterior style
I bought mine in october and sold it quickly in june, dealer was terrible, interior noise was terrible, i even had had sound deadening pads installed and it still has more interior noise city/hwy than my 4 runner or FJ cruiser. fuel economy was not good, 15 city, 20 hwy, it handeled well and the engine is good but well underpowered, the seats are awesome as is the headroom, but without a telescoping steering wheel position is uncomfortable. I had contacted the dealer about the tailgate not opening on memorial day and they contacted me the following november, after i had sold it. also prices for options listed on hondas website do not match the dealer. so ignore anything on the website and just live with what the dealer does. also the sunroof had a wind leak when the wind came at you from an angle to direction....read morehide

- Good looking truck that gets noticed
- Gas mileage could be better.
I own the 06 model and have had absolutely no trouble with it. It does not ride or drive like your typical 4 wheel drive vehicle. Smooth and quiet. Well built. I pull a small camping trailer and it has plenty of power. It is sure footed in all weather and tracks very well. Brakes are very, very good. Navigation system and sound system are a real bonus. XM is great also. I am completely pleased with this vehicle. I also own a Mercedes and chose the Honda over another MB....read morehide

- Fuel consumption is not so great,but quite responsive on uphills
- Poor appearance,ford trucks are way better faced than this
Just bought it few months.The 3.5l V6 engine is not good for fuel consumption.I recomended to take ford or nissan trucks.Way better in appearance than the 2009 Honda Ridgeline
