Re: Ridgeline makes "Best Trucks of the Decade"

I love my truck but....

the article said: "Its 250 horsepower 3.5 liter V6 is peppy and fairly economic". Really? economic? I guess the operative word here is "fairly". At 16 mpg in the city, I don't call that economic. I suppose its more economical then a suburban. That line just seems a little misleading to me. Regardless, that's a great honor for Honda from consumer reports.

Thanks

The Ridgeline is quite economic up against all of those V-8 Fords, Chevys and Dodges........

True, it is all relative I suppose, it just seems a little misleading.
