Re: 2010 Ridgeline Article - PickupTrucks.com
So I was always a die-hard Ford guy. I think it started with my granddad's 70s era F-100 Explorer. I've owned a Ranger, Bronco II, another Ranger, and lastly an Expedition (in that order). When Honda released the Ridgeline, I laughed hysterically saying something to the effect of "who in the hell would buy a truck made by Honda"?
The first time I saw my buddy pulling out and returning his muddy mountain biking gear from the trunk and then later riding in his Ridgeline, I was sold instantly! It turns out I'm who in the hell would buy a truck made by Honda. I never thought I'd buy a non-Ford vehicle....let alone a Honda truck. I couldn't be happier with Ridgeline, except for maybe a little better fuel economy. Still...I'm getting better MPG that my Expedition got. I've been seeing more and more Ridgelines on the road since I got mine a year and a half ago so hopefully it's a truck that's here to stay and will be available for me in a couple of hundred thousand miles.
And I must say this forum has greatly amplified my enjoyment and appreciation for my Ridgeline. I was helping a friend with specing and installing some speakers in a Forerunner and it's dang near impossible to find the quantity, quality, and detail of information, reviews, and pics of such upgrades as can be found here for the Ridgeline.
