The 2006 Honda Ridgeline Was a Letdown
The Ridgeline was Honda’s first attempt to get into the truck market in 2006. The car took four years to design and was built from the ground up. Sadly, after all that research and development, it was called a lemon.
Reviews were harsh, with one stating, "The Ridgeline can’t really do what most people who like trucks need it to do.Sure, some homeowners and weekend warriors may actually need a 10,000-lb towing capacity, but the Honda Ridgeline is probably just right for most." Another review referred to it as an "anti-truck."
