Wow, simply beyond impressed in snow and ice
I know there's an 900-post thread going on about the Ridgeline in Snow/Ice, but lemme condense all of that.
It's simply unbelievable how this vehicle performs in what many would call "un-drivable conditions". I TRIED to slip, slide, do donuts, spin out, whatever- on ice and snow in the past month.
Atlanta, if you haven't seen any national news, got some snow last Thursday, which melted Thursday afternoon and turned into ice-covered roads Friday. This has stuck around until late yesterday. I took one of my co-workers to lunch Friday and I showed him how it was so stable. Lots of times he was grabbing the grab bar, holding on for dear life, but then relaxed and said "WOW". That night, I took the wife out to dinner and we drove through a patch where she said "everybody was sliding"...it was empty that night.
I punched it, got on the ice and slammed on brakes. We stopped, and then I punched it, showing her that it simply bogged down until traction was confirmed and drove on. She was seriously impressed. We get near the house and I take some hills and curves. She said "you're just showing off, now."
Oh, and to the d00d driving on Circle 75 in a silver RL on Thursday at 6pm, sell that truck!! You didn't need to go 10 mph like all those other losers.
