The real weakness with both Honda and Toyota right now is the lack of fun when driving. I say this with the Tacoma being the exception. Even without the supercharger, the Tacoma is both capable and reasonably fun on the interstates and city roads without compromising off road fun.
The same can't be said for the ridgeline imo. It's a great "crossover" in a lot of ways. If you like the AWD CRV but would prefer a little more "rugged" utility instead of keeping the stroller and groceries dry, it's awesome. Saturday gardening trips, some runs to the depot, or even throwing your mountain bikes in the back without laying the seats down make the ridgeline the perfect truck replacement for the suburbanite.
The place where Honda has excelled is upper trims. The leather is nice. I envy the sunroof since Toyota has it available on the Tundra, but forgot about the Taco. The interior is a little more utilitarian for family hauling than the Taco, and it's Honda Fit magic seat setup is a little smarter if you want to haul a TV home in the cab or give the dog a little space without forcing her to slide around on the plastic that covers the back of our double cab Tacos.
The center console is also a little weird to someone who's driven rear wheel drive vehicles their whole life. The openness makes me think something is missing and though this is all personal, I dislike the column shifter. I've read lots of talk about the new Silverado and how so many people dislike the column and dismiss it as cheap looking compared to the competition so I know I'm not alone, but one of my closest buddies prefers it over his tractors manual so that's really just personal preference.
I spent forever trying to decide on the Tacoma I wanted and though I've wanted one since ol' Marty McFly's I was terrified of buyers remorse so I checked, rechecked, and checked again on the ridgeline. When everything was said and done, the Taco was just more fun even if I was giving up some of that luxury offered in the ridgeline.
I wouldn't begrudge anyone who made the opposite decision. Ultimately, I think it comes down to not which one you like better as they are both very enticing, but where you might be in life right now. If you need a backup crossover but don't want the guys to tease you about your wife keeping your testicles in her purse, you go with the ridgeline. If you want/need a capable truck for you, the dog, maybe a wife and a kid when the other car is a fun sedan like an quattro A4 or a 3.5 Altima, you're probably gonna be drawn to a Taco.
