    Trading in the 03 Element (love it), and REALLY like the Ridge, The wife
    kinda wants the Toyota FJ....but admits the Honda was more spacious and
    comfortable. I got the rest of the month to finish shopping for it. So any
    opinions are welcomed!

    There was a time when I actually needed a pickup truck. When the time came I
    actually didn't have to have one, I still bought and drove pickups. I sold
    my F150 and bought a Ridgeline, and for my limited truck use, it's the best
    pickup truck I ever owned. I have used it for a few tough towing and hauling
    trips, and it has performed perfectly. Actually I believe it's a lot tougher
    than it looks.

    The ridgeline is the best truck I have owned. I bought one for my worktruck
    EXL to serve survey crew. I haul my atv in the back sometimes with my
    equipment in the trunk. I have it off-road about 50% of the time in
    cornfields and wet grassland. This truck rides better than any car I have
    owned.

    I drag steel loading ramps across the bed almost weekly. I have also hauled
    #1800 of ceramic tile in it and the brakes were flawless. It also did not
    feel bogged down either. Just a slight wobble from the compressed tires on
    the highway at 75. Still I was amazed considering I have owned a Chevy
    2500, 1500 and Suburban.

    I have also pulled a trailer with a jackhammer and compressor which did not
    make it brake a sweat.

    35,000 miles on it with just a check fuel cap light on once. You can't beat
    it for the versatility. It replaced a Chevy 2500 which was in the shop
    monthly and it only had 50,000 miles when I lost patience with it and sold
    it. The Ridgeline is lighter and is a better off road vehicle. The Chevy
    used to sink in a damp cornfield. I also have a Honda Pilot which I also
    use as a worktruck, mega room for equipment. I love it too.

    Ridgeline high points, great stereo w/sub, off road ability with an
    excellent ride across those bumpy fields, rear seats fold up for more
    equipment space, good acceleration!

    I found that out at the dealer too.

    This is a great truck. We have sold people on these many times when we are
    out working. One of our clients liked ours so much I let him test drive it.
    Later on he bought one and took it on a hunting trip in Maine. His wife
    bought the CR-V later on.

    I went from buying Chevy's to Honda's. (I did own an '84 Celica which I put
    180K miles on it in the 80's.) How many people does one know that drives
    Honda's and switches to Chevy's! LOL!

  14. In the Chicago area, Honda has been giving out $2000 dealer incentives
    to sell them.

    I never needed a pickup before but I need one now, simply to haul wood. but
    I also need to haul people too. The Element was a fun goofy little whatever.
    But overall performance is keeping me with Honda. We've looked at it on
    several occasions this weekend we'll test drive. Thanks for the feedback!

    I looked at the CR-V initially but went with the Element, I'll be hauling
    larger items. So the Ridgeline is a must have. I was also a Chevy owner the
    last new Chevy I bought was 1990, From then I was toyota and honda's and
    never go back I don't do off road atleast on 4 wheels so I wasn't looking
    for any real mud monster, the Toy FJ though would be in that lineup. Thanks
    for your input. Jimmy
