2006 Honda Ridgeline

Trim: RT
by DavidS6262 on 03-21-2014
A TRUCK FOR MOST PURPOSES
I bought my 2006 RL in the fall of 2010, with 119,000kms on it. The only non-standard option was a two-piece Honda tonneau cover for the bed.
We're cottagers, with a cottage at the end of a long fire road. For 3 1/2 years, the RL has performed flawlessly. It has pulled a variety of boats, utility trailers, ATVs and broken down vehicles. With 200,000kms on the clock now, it still continues to runs smoothly, drink a reasonable amount of regular gas, and not cost a whole lot in maintenance. I recently replaced all four struts and the lower control arms, but as they were the originals, they had done very well. I collided with a deer last summer, but all the RL's safety and protection systems performed perfectly, and after new front panels and rads, it was like new.
There is no doubt that this has proved to be the most practical vehicle I have ever owned. The flip-up rear seats are perfect for when we have the dog with us. The under-bed lockable trunk is a fantastic idea, one that other truck manufacturers could benefit from copying. the AWD drive system is amazing in snow - this winter has tested it to the extreme and not found it wanting in any way!
I'm going to try and keep my RL going to at least 1/2 million kms. I'm pretty confident that it will make it with very few issues. What will my next vehicle be? Yup...another Honda Ridgeline!
