honda ridgeline??

8 posts in this topic

Looking for a new vehicle. Anyone out there own one of these or have any input. I understand it has a 5000 lb towing cap. That should pull my 17 ft crestliner pretty easily I would think. It is a different looking creature. I understand that Hondas run forever, but I have never owned one. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Sam

I know someone at work that has one. He pulls a 3600 lb camper with it. Other than really bad mileage while towing something that heavy, he really likes it. I would think a 17 Crestliner would be easily towed with a Ridgeline.

I have owned 3 Honda cars (82 Accord, 91 Civic, and 06 Acura TSX). I've been extremely happy with all of them, with the exception of their resistance to rust for the first two cars.

Just my opinion, but I think those are the ugliest SUVs out there

No offense on the choice though, I don't know anything about them

Not the prettiest thing in the world but it should get the job done. Doesn't get good mileage like the rest of the Hondas. (15 city/20 Hwy) Good storage.

I own one and I really like the vehicle. I got rid of my SUV and got the Ridgeline because I needed a truck bed to haul Menards stuff, cabin stuff, etc etc.

backseat is great for kids and adults, locking trunk is nice, & the ride is great also. On the highway I get around 21 mpg, in town probably around 17. Towing really drops the mileage also.

50k miles and havent done a thing to it except change the oil and rear differential fluid. I give it a thumbs up. Much cheaper than an Avalanche.

Its cheaper because its a mid size and an Avalache is full size. Its apples to oranges, different class of vehicles.

Choose the one that fits your needs!

    • I was glad I had scratchers on thursday,,,, after 7 miles on the trail my skid looked show room clean ,,, put the scratchers down and all was good ,,,Trails are still rideable up here but showing some snert,,, Gonna switch to ice fishing till we get some snow cover again 
    • I thought it looked cool, the way it unfolds.   Run time indeed is an issue, and it would probably take slogging through them one by one to tell.
    • U have to keep telling us.......
    • duurrrr whats a heat exchanger I sold my trail sled and only have my f/c ice fishing sled now.   I was thinking about buying a new trail sled beginning of this year but glad I didn't I just don't have time for both ice fishing and sledding oh the hardships I have   I wish I lived in the mountains I think snowmobiling would win over fishing
    • Have the 8" k-drill. Bought it at the fishing show. Had it out about 8 different times and love it. No complaints. Very light weight, drill about 20-25 holes out each time. Only on Monday did I have to use a second battery, had about 21 inches of ice. I have two 5ah batteries for it.
    • It was awesome.....it is not exactly a new thing for presidents to lie, but the guy actually brought in clappers to clap for his lies about pee and crowd gate.....as this means somehow he wasn't lying his a$$ off?  Watching Spicer later in the day trying to provide cover for the boss was almost painful. ....if it wasn't so funny. No clappers there    #sidetrackedfromallthefirstdaypromises
    • Looks like great sub-flooring but not sure how well chip board products would hold up for a trailer top? Even if it's a covered trailer the slush and salt will do a number on the bottom side I would think? For the cost I would just put some 5/8th treated plywood down.
    • I used to sip cognac with a beer and I didn't even get in to whiskeys or bourbons until 8 or 10 years ago, so as a novice I started with the Canadian blends like Crown, Tangle Ridge and Pendleton and I'm more of a sipper using the old fashioned glasses.  I can't give recommendations on any of the really good brands, but if you ever see some of this... run screaming from the bar.  
    • Catfish is right up there with walleye, perch, trout, steelhead, salmon, flounder, grouper.....
    • What does it matter what Bernie Sanders had figured out considering the DNC blatantly rigged the primary against him? And then they tried with all their might to do it again and were exposed.   Face it, you party is fueled by people who are showing that they are the very ones they claim to be fighting against.    Immoral, intolerant, violent, judgemental and full of hate.
