Hello everyone! I'm a travel nurse that drives all over the country for my job. Originally from Virginia but currently in Omaha, NE. My Dad and my brother (both auto body guys) recently had two 2017 Ridgeline's in their shop and both couldn't stop talking about how well built the truck was. It was easy to replace parts and they couldn't believe how quiet/smooth the ride was. I started doing research and I'm starting to fall in love with the thing, but I have a 2005 Honda Element that has been so good to me, I can't stand to let it go. It's just getting harder to put up with the bad wind noise, the feeling like I'm going to get blown over in the Midwest at high speeds, struggling to get my 4 cylinder engine over the Rockies, and having to manually adjust my cruise control to the person in front of me. Is it worth the car payment to upgrade?
