I have no experience with Ridgelines. I love Toyota trucks. They make a great compact truck.
But, yeah, you pay a ridiculous premium for them. After I sold my '01 Tahoe, I looked into Tacomas. I was really looking for a 4 door small truck with a 6 speed. I test drove them and liked them, but sorry, I was able to buy a loaded Z-71 Tahoe with34k miles on it for less than any Taco with double the miles and half the options. Until the Toyota love fest dies off I'm probably out. Look, any decent newer vehicle these days are good for $200k if you take care of them. I sold my old Tahoe with 160k on it and I had performed no repairs outside of general maintenance.
