Looks take a 3rd row seat to driving dynamics and functionality. The sooner you get over it and get back in the Ridgeline, the happier you’ll be. They are dealing like hell on them now with point 9 financingwell, I hate to see that your opinion of the RL not being a real truck, I’ve owned a lot of 4x4 pickups from Ford, Chevy, and Dodge, and I also owned an 07 RL.. the RLwas as much of a truck as any I’ve owned if not more, it hauled more weight in the bed, rode a hell of a lot better than most, decent gas mileage and the best 4x4 system I ever had. I sold my truck after having it for 12 years, I leased a Ram 1500, it’s been a great truck but it’s not a RL. My neighbor purchased my Ridge and I see it everyday, shouldn’t have sold it. If I could find a lower mileage 2014 I would probably buy it, still don’t like the looks of the gen 2.
