    As the owner of a 2006 Honda Ridgeline with over 112,000 miles on it, I am very disappointed that Honda has mostly limited its updates to the 2012 Ridgeline to the cosmetic category. I have no interest in trading my 2006 for a 2012. The almost perfect truck needs only a few things to make it better; 1) 25 to 30 additional horsepower 2) a six speed transmission, and 3) eliminate the excessive road noise. I cannot believe that a high tech manufacturer like Honda cannot make these improvements, especially since they have been hearing about it from their customers for years.

    As another owner of a 2006, I agree.
