I can handle criticism of the Ridgleine, but at least 'review' the vehicle. It reads like an 18 year old who believes that if it 'don't drive like granddaddy's truck, it ain't no truck, dad-burn it!'. I remember the first time we got a pick-up with 6 1/2 foot bed, instead of an 8 footer, thinking, "how could anybody use that?", but hey, giving up 1.5 ft isn't bad in exchange for extra-cab space and/or better manuverability, right? Or sometimes you just don't really need that much space. Change is good sometimes. It gives the impression that he looked it over in a dealership and drove it for about 10 minutes. What did you haul? How did it do off-road? Did you actually use it the way it was intended or just drive it around the block?
A much better review is the Truck Trend long term review, where a publication that seems to prefer the HD side of the pick-up industry actually gave the Ridgeline a fair shake, and admitted that they put about double (24k) the miles on a year-long trial than they usually do for other vehicles.
A better review would be a side by side between the Tacoma, Frontier, Colorado, Ranger, Sport-Trac, and Dakota. There was a good mid-size review a few years back on www.pickuptrucks.com
, filled with drivers who are VERY biased against the Ridgeline, but the site actually rated the RL the highest of the trucks reviewed.
