    Ok this is driving me nuts, where I live i see nothing but Honda Ridgelines, I know they only sold like 16000 units last year but 1/2 of them must of been sold in this area. Next to the Ford sport trac this is got to be the ugliest vehicle around. So I said to myself their must be one good thing about this vehicle and I finally figured it out. Thank you Honda for making the Tacoma even better looking than I originally thought.

    i would NEVER buy one...I can't believe it was named one of the toughest trucks either...

    on another note...once again, the 2nd gen section is the dumping ground...

    I like Hondas, but that thing just doesn't strike me as a truck. It's like an SUV with an uncovered trunk or something.

    Don't get me wrong, I am NO Ridgeline fan. They look better with shells on them, but I agree that they don't look that good to begin with.
    However, I do take a little issue with declaring it the ugliest car on the road. I submit my evidence:

    To each their own.

    If the Ridgeline
    * were 2/3 of it's current size
    * got rid of the ridiculous, sloping, way-too-high bedrails
    * had a manual option
    * had a I4 option

    I would take a look at it.

    Honda makes good stuff. I wouldn't say that I would never own a Honda truck. That being said, I'm glad the Ridgeline isn't really a truck. I couldn't own that. LOL
