Consumer Reports - A Win for the G2

Just saw CR's review of the RL. It scored 75 on a 0-100 scale, 18 points better than the 2d place Colorado & 34 higher than the Taco. It also topped all of the full-size trucks. For me it's another data point that is right in line with most of the other RL reviews I've read and confirms my personal experience. For me the RL is the best truck available that meets my needs & wants in a truck - and I love my BE more every day.

Re: Consumer Reports - A Win for the G2

I completely agree. Honda hit the nail on the head so to speak.

Re: Consumer Reports - A Win for the G2

They made it top rated midsize pickup truck and also gave it a "Recommended." In fact, it's the only recommended vehicle of the midsize pickup range. I haven't even read the review yet but I know Consumer Reports. They love this truck.

New & Used Car Ratings, Reviews & Buying Guides - Consumer Reports

Not sure whether you'll be able to follow that link or not, but it's worth a try. I'll post a screenshot of the ratings. I don't think that Consumer Reports will mind that since we're linking to them.

I just read in the CR story that the G1 took Most Reliable Used Pickup Truck! Double win!

Consumer Reports' December 2016 review ratings chart with the Ridgeline at the top of the heap.

They usually sum up with their pros and cons in their review. What did they say were the RL pros and cons?

CR states:

Pros:
* most car like
* quiet and well finished
*comfortable ride
* tailgate and trunk

Cons:
* 5000 lb tow rating
* touch screen unintuitive and poor design
* shallow bed

Basically, what many (but not all) here are echoing.

This will only add to re-sale value.

Observations on Consumer Reports Video Road Test of the Ridgeline:
CR team really, really liked this truck.
They recorded a 7.3 0 – 60 time, others have seen 6.6.
20MPG overall (I'm hitting 25 and 26 after 700 miles).
They preferred the BSM over the “Lanewatch” feature.
One reviewer stated: “It rides better than many luxury SUVs.”

Re: Consumer Reports - A Win for the G2

I don't listen to these comparisons either way. If Consumer Report's opinion was poor then everyone here would complain and dismiss it, stating they don't know what they are doing. So when the review or comparison goes the owners way, they wear it as a badge of honor. When it doesn't they incessantly complain and point the finger. Best just to make your own judgement.
