"Offering some pickup truck utility with the ride, handling and fuel economy of a minivan, the Honda Ridgeline sounds like it should be a hit, but its awkward styling and an embarrassingly outdated interior have kept it from being one," said Cars.com reviewer Aaron Bragman.

Last week's lone newcomer to our list of most-watched videos, the 2014 Dodge Durango, worked its way up to No. 1 this time out. In his critique, Cars.com reviewer Kelsey Mays says that, despite only apparent tweaks to the exterior, the SUV has been updated significantly for the new model year, and the result is an effective combo of "drivability and utility." This week's lone debut is from the 2014 Honda Ridgeline, checking in at No. 5 as PickupTrucks.com editor Mark Williams introduces the pickup’s new high-level Special Edition trim. Check out what was popular.
Like the Master of Suspense stepping into his own silhouette in an episode of "Alfred Hitchcock Presents," the shadowy outline of the just-announced next-gen Honda Ridgeline in a teaser image is intended to titillate the audience for what comes next. Honda seems to be going out of its way to generate suspense over the redesign of the midsize pickup, offering no info about size or capabilities, and saying cryptically that it will arrive sometime in "the next two years," possibly after the scheduled mid-2014 end of the current generation's production run.

Maybe you love it, maybe you hate it, but almost certainly you're talking about it. Polarizing cars have that effect on people — but sometimes you just love what you love, even if seems like everyone thinks you're nuts for loving it. Sometimes that public pressure makes you love it more. There have been cars like this since the beginning of the auto industry, with the first automobiles themselves being polarizing machines. Some people thought the horseless carriage was amazing, and some thought it was blasphemy, but it certainly got attention.
We polled the editors of Cars.com to decide the most polarizing cars of recent memory and tabulated the results. What's the most polarizing car?

Honda is recalling 17 Ridgeline pickup trucks from the 2012 model year because the airbag status indicator on the passenger side may be incorrectly installed, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
The vehicles affected by the recall were built on April 18, 2012. (You can check your vehicle’s build date on a sticker on the driver-side doorjamb.) If the airbag status indicator does not work properly, vehicle occupants may not be informed or aware that the front passenger airbag is deactivated and will not deploy in a crash. This could increase the risk of injury to a front passenger-seat occupant who may have chosen to sit or been seated elsewhere in the vehicle if the correct indicator were given.
Honda will notify owners starting Sept. 21, and dealers will replace the indicator for free. Owners can call Honda at 800-999-1009 or NHTSA’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.
