honda ridgeline??

Recommended Posts

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!

    • How deep were the trout running?  We heard ultra deep on Crow to 30 ft.  The 30 ft number came from people actually catching them.   Thanks for the pics!  I like the fly rod smallie.
    • try the raid spray on grass at bottom. 
    • Here are some pictures from this years trip!
    • How do you keep ants off your feeders, especially hummingbird and oriole feeders? I've tried Toro and Raid sprays on the post but it seeks the birds don't like that smell either and i don't see many for a while. Has anyone else experienced that? Any good ideas?
    • I should’ve looked closer - I have an eyes open pic too. 😌  Tough to tell sometimes on my phone screen.  
    • Among other wilds that have moved into our urban areas, we can now add loons.  There is a breeding pair on the lake formerly known as Calhoun, mostly staying on the west and northwest sides.  But there is also a bunch of yearlings fishing the east side, numbering maybe six or seven and so unafraid that they come right up to the 36th Street dock and try to steal suckers being used for musky bait.  Maybe the call of the wild is not really so alien to the South side of Minneapolis, but it looks like the loons have moved in and can be heard calling from time to time. 
    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂
