Hi all, haven't commited to a CT yet. I'm not sure if I can pry myself away from my '06 Ridgeline RTL. I have argued to the better half that perhaps I need both but she is not buying the argument. I look forward to everyone's comments on the CT. No better info than from the person driving it.

Drive one, you will love it!

Some might say the front grille or rear shape are the killer of CT, but I say, it's one of a kind.

MPG wise, it's about avg for a V-6 engine sedan for city, but for highway, it's way better than avg V-6 engine sedan.

what are you waiting for!? =P

Couldn't convince the wife!........frankly I like the front, don't really mind the back and from many angles I think the back looks good too. From here it's all good!

I think the CT grille looks better than the Accord grille

With it widened out and the I think beefier look - it just blends into the front of the car.

Pulled the trigger yesterday on a '10 CT EX-L with Navi. Gray with black interior. Looks good in my garage. Best part is I traded the '08 Avalon for it and kept my '06 Ridgeline RTL. Looking forward to participating with everyone.

Keep those cards and letters coming in boys and girls.

LOL, that's the spirit -- dump the Toy and keep the Honda......Kudos.

(I won't mention that my other car is a Lex...:D)

Enjoy the Hondas AD -- You're in great shape with autos.

I traded my '06 RidgeLine RTL and my wife's '05 CR-V EX for the EX-L Navi. Loved the RL and it took very little time in the CT to realize it would be the same. Downsized due to not driving 5k miles in the past 2 years due to non-Hodgkin Lymphoma and it became a serious PITA when I was having some bad days to hear "could you move the truck?" she was always nervous driving the RTL due to the size and thus far we don't miss not having 2 vehicles. Best of luck with yours, sounds like we have the exact same vehicle your RL isn't Steel Blue is it? ;)

My RTL is Black. And still loving it. My wife likes to drive it though. Sorry to hear of your health issues, hope everything has turned out ok for you. I'm happy right now for having the best of both worlds, the CT and the Ridge.

Remember when we first got the Ridge the looks we used to get. I let people try her out now and they are envious.

Best wishes to you and the better half.

Thanks for the wishes and I am a bit envious that you have both the RL and the CT but I know I won't get better and in reality it's probably right to have one vehicle for now anyway.

I was in 'nam 69-70 and spent the first 6 months in I Corps where we received a steady course of Agent Orange which they have attributed my NHL being the benefactor of my status.

Spent 4 years active duty in the Navy an 26+ as a civilian working for them, was a Tri-Care rep for Region 1 when Tri-Care rolled out and retired in 2005. Best to you and your family.
