Jeff: Get the Honda. For the extra three or four grand, it will last
three or four or more years than the Sport Trac. It's also a lot
safer...which is usually the cause for the price increase. Sport Tracs
roll over very easily (I know from experience...) and, while the
initial cost isn't as high as the Ridgeline, if you get it high in
miles repairs get expensive also.
I'd go with the Honda. It's bigger, safer, and more reliable.
