I see NO sense in the concept whatsoever. The little cargo area wont even hold enough beer to keep the thirst of the passengers it holds at bay, so whats the point??? I just dont get it. it'* only effective use would be to carry 6 grown men to a construction site for Lilliputians ( With Schooling what is is today),.... I'm sure most here under 40 or so will have to google search that term.

My mom went to a yard sale in her Avy once and she bought a long folding table...The seller had a Ridgeline...He stood there and watched in pure amazement as my mom opened up the back of the cab and then slid the table in. Mom said that a few weeks later, she noticed an Avalanche with temp plates parked in that guy'* driveway.

Nope, Ford Owners/enthusiasts must suffer through Purgatory, where they must endure countless ions of driving Kia'* and Yugo'* untill their sins are washed away. Really. It is written in the Bonneville Book of the Dead.

Ridgeline isn't the best..

The unibody has no seperation between bed and cab, and will warp/tweak pretty easily. It'* basically an accord with a truck bed underneath it all.. Plenty of good ideas, but it'* more of a soccer mom thing than even a mid size truck replacement.

Also pricey..

Hmmm.....Car and Driver just gave the Ridgeline great reviewsw in its July issues.

They did say its a bit on the ugly side. They went with the optional substutute grill for $299. I agree that was money well spent.
I have always lovedt the Ridgeline.
My biggest beef is teh lack of color choices.

Not trying to start any wars here. Just stating my opinion and what I have heard. Personally I have never driven or even ridden in one.

LOL, I was reading that article about the Ridgeline -

Quote:
Hey, even the state of Michigan, which has more than a little motor-vehicle experience, is confused about the Ridgeline’* classification. Our tester’* registration documents describe it as a “station wagon.”
I don't know about anyone else, but I want this truck. I hope to own a used truck like this in the future. BTW its raised too
