My wife finally decided to replace her 2001 Town and Country Van .

 

She picked a 2020 Honda CR-V EX.

Happy wife, happy life.

Great looking ride.  Really like the color.  Just looked at that same vehicle today on the lot. But think my wife is going with the HR-V.   Unfortunately the HR-V isn’t available in that color.

Lots of Hondas in our family. Great vehicles.  If they made a “Real truck”, I’d hafta give it a try.

They do, I'm on my third Ridgeline and boy does it irritate the Ford/Chevy/Dodge Diesel guys when I have to pull their stuck-in-the-mud 4x4's out of a mudhole on a two-track during hunting season.  JSNS

Don't have a dog in this fight, but they don't make a truck with any kind of serious towing capacity, and for me and a lot of other folks, that is a very key attribute in a "real truck".  Did a quick look, and towing capacity was given at 3500-5000#'s.  I think my current 1/2 ton truck (Ford F150) can tow up 11,500#'s.  I know I have a trailer hooked up about 1/2 the time to my truck, with two of my loads north of 6000#'s.  I own a honda pilot, which I believe the ridgeline is based off of.  Great SUV, but not a replacement of a full sized truck for those who need true truck capacities.  I will say, the honda pilot has been great in the snow and I am sure would be in the mud as well, with height restrictions.

I get what you’re saying but that is not the purpose of the ridgeline.  It’s still a truck just a light to moderate version and very functional.  A bull mastiff is a dog just like a cocker spaniel

My wife got one too.  When I drive it I don't know how to operate half of the gadgets.  Assisted cruise control, lane control assist, lane warnings, blind spot warnings, cross traffic warnings when backing up, warnings when approaching a slow or stopped vehicle, linking into your phone so everything goes to the touch screen, auto lock and unlocking your doors   The wife is a techy and likes all the options but  I could live without them.  Except that assisted cruise control, that is the bomb.

Unless you fall into la la land like I did the first time using it on a rental.  Hit cruise control and sat in the right lane.  Never did notice that the 70 mph cruise I set up was actually doing 62 behind a semi.  I got that magical distance behind the vehicle and it just slowed down.  I don't know how many miles I went before I realized that the cushion it needs not slow down is more than what I am use to.  Maybe that is a note for me, to move over sooner when passing?

  Yep.  I did that too the first time and maybe the second but I think I learned.

My wife has one.  Great vehicle. Not designed to tow or bushwhack but she doesn’t do that.

Well they still don't, which kinda surprises me after all these years.
