Yeah, that was my first thought when Honda came out with the 2nd gen. It kind of grew on me over the years though. The reliability and rust resistance of the Honda is what was keeping me in the Honda world, we'll see how the Maverick does in that regard.
A 2 or 3 year old 2nd generation Honda Ridgeline. I have a 14 year old 1st gen Ridgeline now. I realized I could get a new Maverick Lariat for the price of a used Ridgeline + get the 40 MPG instead of ~ 16. Decision made.
