HONDA RIDGELINE Vs TOYOTA TACOMA - Which Vehicle Is Best For Me?? by jhydosky(m): 9:02pm On Oct 12, 2016
Dear Nairalanderd or should I say Auto-landers? cheesy

No forum is more real than this. I need your help.

Please I seek your honest opinion in taking a decision on the best vehicle for me. Put yourselves in my shoe and let me know what choice(s) would you take.

I'm desirous of a one-fits-all vehicle that meets the below key features in the minimum:

1. LOADING: My major issues with cars is the limited space for taking loads. Some cars even when carrying full occupants tends to have their rear so low. I envisage to pick up loads in addition to full passengers every once in a while.

2. APPEAL: I want a vehicle that is appealing to the eyes, one that is more than acceptable, if not respected for social events/outings.

3. COMFORT: This one is so key. Because, I travel long distances frequently, I want a vehicle that will give me a luxurious ride whether as a run around or during long distance haulage.

4. RELIABILITY: Proven reliability, ruggedness and durability.

5. GOOD RESALE VALUE.

Many friends have voted Honda Ridgeline against Toyota Tacoma in a 5 - 4 vote; as the BEST fitting my 5 minimum criterion.

I am however open to suggestions and seeking wider opinions since those I asked are limited by their experiences.

What vehicle would you suggest is BEST for me?
Experienced users are most welcome.

Mods. Please support me. It's my 1st post in car talk because of how dear this opinion poll is to me.
Thank you

The Ridgeline would be good if you don't want people to think you are using a truck. Not too common so will stand out.
Instead of buying the Tacoma, why don't you look at the Nissan Frontier/Navana.
There is also a very luxurious hilux I think GLX badge though the difference will only be noticed inside not outside.

The Nissan Navara looks appealing...But I fear durability and ruggedness for Nissan. Looks like what I could go for.

Thank you
