Riding and handling like a good sedan, the Ridgeline rewrites the book on pickups. It's a truck that isn't a hardship to drive. Further, it has many unique innovations, including a tailgate that opens vertically or horizontally and a lockable trunk. The roomy cab is nicely detailed and easy to access, with comfortable seats. While not designed for serious off-roading, Ridgeline also scaled our demanding rock hill.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.

Driving Experience

Includes acceleration and handling

What Owners Say

"very smooth ,stable ride . Ride quality was not even on the radar when I bought it , It is probably the best feature of this truck besides reliability,"

CARMEN B., AB (2007 Honda Ridgeline)

"Acceleration of the Ridgeline is slightly less responsive than the Si probably due to the automatic transmission. However, once the power kicks in, it is a force to be reckoned with. Handling is clean and predictable."

SANDRA F., MD (2007 Honda Ridgeline)

"Best handling machine for snow and ice I have experienced."

"Drives very smooth"

Alfredo G., TX (2007 Honda Ridgeline)

"Excellent handling and smooth ride"

Anonymous, NM (2007 Honda Ridgeline)

"The Ridgeline has good acceleration and excellent handling—the latter the best of any of the several trucks I've owned and better than some of my many cars over the years. Its full-time AWD provides a feeling of security, particularly in winter conditions; the Ridge is my go-to vehicle when there's snow on the ground."

K H., MN (2007 Honda Ridgeline)

"No buttons or levers to actuate 4 wheel drive. The first winter storm in Colorado in this vehicle , my wife came home smiling at how safe she felt with the stability to pass others who were slipping and sliding around or stuck. Giving her that peace of mind is priceless. The intelligent design of comfortable yet foldable rear seating, in bed trunk and large center console storage give her unlimited flexibility for shopping and placement of purses and bags."

David N., OR (2007 Honda Ridgeline)

"Could use more power. When AC is running and it's very hot in Phoenix, power is noticeably lower than winter."

John L., AZ (2007 Honda Ridgeline)

"I love the way my 2007 Honda Ridgeline drives. It is very easy to handle. The acceleration is fantastic. As for the handling, I drive some back roads that are not always expertly paved. The Ridgeline handles these roads without any problems!"

Amy D., FL (2007 Honda Ridgeline)

"easy to drive on dirt and highway. I'm not a "4-wheeler". excessively noisy suspension...on dirt. excessively noisy at high speed on highway."

"Good handling. Comfortable to drive."

Harold M., PA (2007 Honda Ridgeline)

"Gearing is nice, when I need to pass, I can get it moving very fast, has good acceleration. Plus, in tight spots, it turns "on a dime", very handy, steering is effortless and it holds the line easily. Not in the least tiring to drive and doesn't need a lot of steering wheel "management", no wandering, etc."

"With its six cylinder engine - it accelerates quickly; however, it has a very wide turning radius which gets tricky when making U-turns. Your magazine had forewarned me about the wide turning radius."

"The handling is very good for the payload capacity and ride quality."

Anonymous, CA (2007 Honda Ridgeline)

"Moderately responsive to accelerating onto high speed interstates and to perform avoidance maneuvers at high speed. There is a slight hiccup and then the system surges into life. Takes slightly more of a rotation of the steering wheel to change lanes. Overall powerful and consistent engine performance."

Sandra F., MD (2007 Honda Ridgeline)

"For its size and weight, the Ridgeline has very responsive accelaration and good handling. The 4 wheel drive feature is a good plus."

Daren E., IL (2007 Honda Ridgeline)

Comfort

Includes seats, climate control, noise, and ride

What Owners Say

"The seats are high off the floor which supports the upper leg while the lower leg drops straight down. Hence, the seats are very comfortable seats for short or day long drives. The cabin is elevated above the tops of most cars providing a comfortable and safe view of the roadway."

GEORGE S., IA (2007 Honda Ridgeline)

"The Ridgeline line is supremely comfortable. The seats heat up rapidly in winter. The leather has held up well and is supple and comfortable. The climate control system is highly responsive in all seasons. The dual controls ensure that the driver and passenger are always in an environmental adjusted just for the individual. It quickly and consistently keeps windows defogged and deiced so that visibility is clear and unobstructed. The seats adjust to support your back and allow ease of entrance/e"

"Very comfortable support of my back and legs. The seat is deep enough."

Andrew F., GA (2007 Honda Ridgeline)

"As its many reviews attest, the Ridgeline drives, rides and handles more like a car than a truck. I found it a comfortable and quiet chariot on a recent 3,000-mile round trip (competently towing 3,000 pounds of U-Haul on the return leg). The leather seats in mine are comfy, and their electric heat is welcome in Minnesota winters (though I wish for air-conditioned seats in Minnesota summers)."

STEPHEN S., OH (2007 Honda Ridgeline)

Anonymous, PA (2007 Honda Ridgeline)

"The Ridgeline is what it is. If you need a comfortable, 5 seat truck with a small bed (and trunk), then this is a great choice. Don't expect to get a work truck or a SUV."

JOELL R., CA (2007 Honda Ridgeline)

"It's a truck and SUV at the same time. Comfort lyrics seats 5 and with the rest seats up there's a lot of storage space. The addition of the hidden trunk in the bed is wonderful while travelling. You can stow luggage and other thing out of sight. You can also use the hidden bed compartment as an ice chest. It has a drain hole to accommodate that."

MARK K., AZ (2007 Honda Ridgeline)

"I purchased this vehicle from the original owner with approx 35,000 miles on it. It now has 120,000 ultra-reliable miles on it. Very few problems (other than the airbag recall). Most of the maintenance expenses were for regular lube/oil, tires, brakes, filters...which are all expected. I do wish the vehicle got better gas mileage."
