The Quiet and Smooth Honda Ridgeline

August 7th, 2012 by

Some reviews of the 20-12 Honda Ridgeline mentioned that this vehicle handles very well. It is like an SUV that has truck features for more versatility and function. It has a 3.5-liter V-6 engine and its 5-speed automatic allows you to shift quickly with not much noise. The 2012 Ridgeline gives you a quality ride and a light steering feel so driving is a very nice experience. Even if you choose the standard all-wheel drive, the 2012 Ridgeline is easier to control. The Ridgeline is equipped with a five-foot bed plus you can install an extended flip-out if you please.

The Ridgeline performed well in the past in the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration crash tests. It also has good scores from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety for its front and side impact protection. Other features include Bluetooth connectivity and a rearview camera.

Standard features include air conditioning, power windows and sound system. Upgrades such as voice-recognition navigation system, satellite radio and more are also available from Honda. The 2012 Ridgeline is available in four different trims.

One satisfied client mentioned in his review that he can notice the tweaks from the 2006 models to the latest 2012 vehicle. He traded his old car for a Ridgeline because he wanted to save on gas. He mentioned that although it doesn’t fully function as a truck, this works for him because he really doesn’t need a truck. He uses his Ridgeline for camping, camping, biking and doing his errands so it is perfect for him. The one word he would use to describe his Ridgeline is smooth. Some of his favorite features are the flip up rear seats, trunk, back up camera and the reliability of the 2012 Ridgeline.
