Most of you guys are comparing it as a "truck". It's really an SUV (Pilot) w/ a small bed. A buddy of mine in Tenn has one and loves it. The AWD works flawlessly and the ride is very comfortable. The interior is a little more 'stiff' than my Pilot but still comfy.
LOL - This is a potentially good poll thread - Who likes it / Who doesn't
I actually like it, and DID test drive it back in '07 before I bought my '07 Tundra. I thought it was a really cool and innovative "truck" and at the time (before kids) I didn't need a ton of room, and it was as comparatively big inside as the '07 DC I bought. If it would have had a bigger / more powerful engine, and a slightly longer bed (or a "mid-gate" like the Avalanche) I would have bought it. The lockable in-bed trunk was a great idea, and one I'd love to see in my truck now.
My wife drives an '04 Pilot, and it's a fantastic vehicle. It's got about 50k miles on it now, and we just had the brakes/rotors replaced. The only other thing it needed was a battery, and the interior space is just fine for us & our 2 boys. Honda's interiors always seem more lackluster and utilitarian (less flashy), but u can't deny the overall quality of their cars.
I think the Ridgeline could have done alot better with a bigger engine. That, and the longer bed, although it was only 6" shorter than my CM's bed now.
