With the Ridgeline, Honda has evolved the concept of the pickup, creating a smart truck aimed squarely at the actual needs of most pickup owners. The original, innovative Ridgeline turned off many buyers because of its peculiar styling. The lessons have been learned. As a result, the second-generation Ridgeline looks much more conventional, while being even more sensible.

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.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Owner Satisfaction with:

Driving Experience

Includes acceleration and handling

What Owners Say

"The response to acceleration is wonderful, and it handles like a much smaller vehicle. Turning ratio is excellent."

Linda M., AL (2019 Honda Ridgeline)

"Exceptional low-end torque is available. We have not tried pulling a load yet but 1500 pounds of lime in the bed did nothing to upset handling. Compared to my 145" wheelbase Ford F150, this Ridgeline handles like a race car."

Garland M., NC (2019 Honda Ridgeline)

"ECON system delivers excellent fuel economy while allowing the vehicle to be driveable under most driving conditions"

Anonymous, IN (2019 Honda Ridgeline)

"Very good throttle and transmission response. Very good MPG. Very good handling with AWD and many safety systems not available on other pick ups. Meets all our needs as both a pick up and an SUV."

Chris B., BC (2019 Honda Ridgeline)

"much better acceleration and handling than my 2014 ridgeline."

Scott T., TX (2019 Honda Ridgeline)

"It's quiet, it handles, it doesn't rattle, it rides beautifully, the interior is to die for, you can drive it every day and not get beaten up."

Anonymous, AB (2019 Honda Ridgeline)

"The turning circle is very wide, making it difficult to maneuver in tight places. It is very difficult for the driver to judge where the corners of the front.bumper are, making parking and navigating drive-thrus difficult in some circumstances."

Dan L., AL (2019 Honda Ridgeline)

"Good power and handling. Drives like a SUV."

Anonymous, NJ (2019 Honda Ridgeline)

"see previous comment"

Anonymous, PA (2019 Honda Ridgeline)

"Mpg on long trips, fast and handles well"

Anonymous, WV (2019 Honda Ridgeline)

"The ridgeline is a little underpowered and the steering requires more attention than other cars and pickups I have owned."

E J., TX (2019 Honda Ridgeline)

"Very smooth and crisp. Drives smaller than it is. Easy to see over the hood."

William M., CT (2019 Honda Ridgeline)

"very quit and excellent ride, very car like."

Anonymous, NH (2019 Honda Ridgeline)

"Smooth acceleration and very responsive handling. It feels like I'm driving some upper-end luxury vehicle."

Darren G., TX (2019 Honda Ridgeline)

"Lots of pep and so smooth you think you are driving a car."

J C., ON (2019 Honda Ridgeline)

"Acceleration can be brisk if needed. Handling is very good. I mostly drive in the ECO mode so acceleration is more muted."

Robert B., SC (2019 Honda Ridgeline)

"Drives nicely, good acceleration, disappointed with mileage."

Michael R., UT (2019 Honda Ridgeline)

Comfort

Includes seats, climate control, noise, and ride

What Owners Say

"The Ridgeline seats only heat your bottom, not your back, as does the Highlander. I even looked at aftermarket seats, to no avail. Also, the Ridgeline seats are slow to heat."

David W., NC (2019 Honda Ridgeline)

"Cabin in quiet, ride is smooth, leather seats are very comfortable"

Anonymous, IN (2019 Honda Ridgeline)

"Ridgeline built in Alabama. Great build quality. Honda did a much better jog on 2017 revamp of Ridgeline in quieting down the ambient road noise. I am very satisfied in all respects with this vehicle. But then I also really liked my no-fault 2016 RAM 1500."

Robert B., SC (2019 Honda Ridgeline)

"Excellent ride with independent rear suspension and extremely quiet driving. Excellent ease of operation (after having a 2017 Nissan Titan - much more fun and relaxing to drive with equal practicality)."

Chris B., BC (2019 Honda Ridgeline)

"I am pleasantly surprised that there is almost no wind noise at speed. The only noise I noticed comes from the Firestone tires."

H W., SC (2019 Honda Ridgeline)

"Extremely comfortable ride. Very quiet. very smooth acceleration and braking."

Darren G., TX (2019 Honda Ridgeline)

"This small truck rides like an SUV. Is quiet and comfortable. enjoy the safety features and the other auto controls."

E J., TX (2019 Honda Ridgeline)

"Plenty of leg room"

William M., CT (2019 Honda Ridgeline)

"Riding is this truck is more like riding in a luxury car; it is smooth, quiet, and the seats are amazing!"

Linda M., AL (2019 Honda Ridgeline)

"Not as comfortable as previous Ridgeline design."

Anonymous, AL (2019 Honda Ridgeline)

"This is the quietest truck I've driven. The heated power seats are far better than the 2005 Odyssey it replaced, with more support and more adjustments. The suspension is forgiving and you can almost forget you are driving a truck. This is likely due to the integrated body/frame construction."

Garland M., NC (2019 Honda Ridgeline)

"Very comfortable seats. Ride and cabin noise are more like a quality SUV than a truck."

Dan L., AL (2019 Honda Ridgeline)

"Very quiet and it rides so smooth, better than most cars, Seats are adjustable and feel great."

Robert D., FL (2019 Honda Ridgeline)

"Good comfort, better rear seat room than the Tacoma."

Anonymous, NJ (2019 Honda Ridgeline)

"This vehicle is so comfortable. It's perfect for me. Most comfortable vehicle I've ever owned."

Anonymous, TX (2019 Honda Ridgeline)

"Very quiet, nice ride for a truck"

Mary H., WI (2019 Honda Ridgeline)

"Much more comfortable than my 2014 ridgeline, great improvement."

Scott T., TX (2019 Honda Ridgeline)

"quiet and very comfortable great sound system"

Chris R., MI (2019 Honda Ridgeline)

"Handles like an automobile. Good acceleration, very quiet inside."

Michael R., UT (2019 Honda Ridgeline)

"It rides and handles more like a car than a truck. Very comfortable. I didn't want a magnum hemi V8 with guts and glory!"

Anonymous, PA (2019 Honda Ridgeline)

Value

Did you get what you wanted relative to the price you paid?

What Owners Say

"Great gas mileage. Lots of room internally. The truck bed liner is absolutely indestructible for carrying all sorts of items. a great urban truck and pretty decent off road."

J C., ON (2019 Honda Ridgeline)

"I view it as a SUV with a pick up bed. Excellent gas mileage with reasonable towing capacity ."

Anonymous, MI (2019 Honda Ridgeline)

"Best truck I’ve ever owned. Although it’s brand new I can see I got more value for my money than I expected. Very quiet. Handles very well. Controls for everything are perfect"

Anonymous, MD (2019 Honda Ridgeline)

"I feel I got a very good deal from the car dealer ship.. For the ride, appearance and extras in its class, outstanding."

Robert D., FL (2019 Honda Ridgeline)

"Tailgate doesn't lock - possible theft of items in bed, tonneau cover can even be stolen. Great ride, very spacious."

Bruce C., OH (2019 Honda Ridgeline)

"good value; strong reliability and safety."

Anonymous, MO (2019 Honda Ridgeline)

"The Ridgelines' only shortcoming is towing capacity. If your needs require more than the 5000 pound towing capacity, maybe buy something else. If the towing capacity meets your needs, this is the only truck worth buying."
