Honda's Profit Margin May Fall in the Second-Half

Recommended Posts

I like the look of the Ridgeline, as long as it has the Hood Rack, Running Boards, and extra front grille lower guard thing =) It is a great utility truck. It handles great too, much better than any truck on the road today. It's just too bad not enough people are willing to give it a chance.

that alone means it should pull a 20,000 pound trailer with no frame damage and also it will get 20 mpg doing it!

Yeah, but what about when the VTEC kicks in? That thing would be good for at least 40,000lbs (and get 40mpg).

The Ridgeline is simply overpriced for what you get.

It starts at around $28K. For that you could get a very well-equipped (if not fully-loaded) Canyon, Frontier, Tacoma, etc. The Ridgeline can reach prices of over $35K at which point you definitely will be able to buy a fully-loaded midsize truck or an equally-equipped fullsize truck (any of which are more capable than the Ridgeline).

The Element is ugly but sells because it's cheap. Ugly and expensive don't work together. However, the Ridgeline does have a 42-month $299 lease deal now, so it may start to move.

if the ridgeline is anything like my buddy's new Pilot, you'll be lucky to see 15 mpg on daily driving, without towing or hauling anything besides a wife that won't put out. The wife doesn't, but the truck sure does suck (fuel). Edited by regfootball
