Looking for a specific review

I've been reading a lot of reviews on the new ridgeline recently. I read one a week or 2 ago and I am looking for it again and not having any luck. I checked the review posts on this forum, but did not see it and do not have access to post there. The review I believe was a professional review, but he seemed to be by someone who had purchased the vehicles rather than just had a chance to test it for the review. At one point they mention how they were trying to pick which trim level they wanted and I believe they said they were leaning towards the RTL due to wanting either the leather or power seat option. But I believe there is something they wanted from one of the higher level packages, but that they dreaded stepping up to the packages with the touchscreen. I don't recall which one they picked in the end, but I would like to read that review again if anyone remembers it and can point me in the right direction I would appreciate it. Thanks!

FWIW, get the RTL-E or Black Edition. You won't be disappointed.

Some people whine about the touchscreen, but they shouldn't. It works excellent, and the lack of a volume knob is a non-issue. The slider on the infotainment works great as do the steering wheel buttons. And since when do you need to adjust volume from 0-20 immediately or vice versa? Easy enough to hit the power "button" or pause if you need to stop sound for second.

The top level trims have all the best features Honda offers, and it's worth the money.

Re: Looking for a specific review

Just to add to the above post. One assumes "all" you get is what is on the equipment list however after reading these forums for the last 6 months one realizes there is much more than just equipment. There are a vast amount of settings that come with those upgrades found on the higher trims which really adds to the flexibility/customization which cannot be done on lower trims. I certainly think the E or BE is the best way to go.

I remember the post you are referring to. That person dreaded stepping up to get the sliding rear window.

SERIOUSLY?, the forum used to be somewhat organized, now about 1/2 the G2 members complained that they wanted some organization and sub forums, so additional sections were added and many countless hours were spent moving and attempting to organize this. As soon as this work begun, here came the we can't find stuff, because it's been moved.

No, starting multiple threads about "How do the walk away door looks work", "Why do the Canadian Versions get a CD player and so many other options". Some of the early and best members from the G2 users, got frustrated and are rarely here, because it's the same question, comment or complaint every week. They got bored, frustrated and tired.

As for this review, if reviews were put where they should be in the REVIEWS section then they wouldn't need to be moved and they would be in one logical place. Which is where I would start searching. Further more if threads were given a title, which provided some amount of detail, things could be found, because there would be something to search for.

Which brings me to using the search function, there are two, the vB Search, which searches within the forum, and the Google search, which is basically a Google "Power Search", There is also the "Search this Forum" which narrows down the vB Search to a Sub Forum, within the Forum.

User experience:
* Its like Windows... things are everywhere not necessarily organized intuitively. So, your example of Reviews are not particular to 1G/2G. It is general.
* Even using search, the results noise is so great, you cannot find the threads easily
* Doesn't explain weird things like Active Topics, not being active topics
* Nowhere is there an explanation why subtopics cannot be shown as activity, which would help users see the thread that SUDDENLY disappeared.
* If someone has a problem with "using" something on the vehicle... its a crap shoot to find PROBLEMS/FIXES/TSBSr it's proper section. Problems is not a vehicle-TYPE as the other topics are organized, so it breaks the organization-decision tree. Your topics should be broken down by the type, each with a problem area.
* There is no sub area for BODY, PAINT, BOX, HITCH, TOWING... Sometimes I don't have a clue where to place. For example, I wanted to know if the Honda primer under black is black or white. Where do I file that? (answer by the way is white from what I can see makes for lovely scratches).
* Terms like Active Topics and Recent Discussions doesn't distinguish things well.
* Recent users like me has taken nearly 5 months of HEAVY usage to understand this layout. An evidently I still don't.
* The site designer should consider placing search operator examples displayed in the search window to explain to the user HOW to break down the search.
* I know the site is ad driven, very ad driven, extremely ad driven, don't ignore that factor when people don't revisit. May not be many, just saying
* Usually like this truck. If one person complains, it might be the person. If several complain, it might be the product.

Agree with:
* Titling the topic.

I sense it's time for a round of drinks. First off, Carsmak, you do an excellent job. Second, these are the problems you want, user activity... it creates Google Indexes and traffic to your site.

EDIT: *** and here is a "thought" for your site designers. Include a "Digress" check box (flag) in the thread. When the users deviate from the topic, flag it. That would allow those comments to COLLAPSE (temporarily hide). And the search operator could include those or not. This would help visitors just see the topic.

I like cornbread, and they should include a heated speedometer.

There see, I do like cornbread, and my current obsession with cornbread has me not thinking clearly about our unheated speedometer... so the topic deviates!, put a check mark by it and collapse it). It is a big design task, but maybe that can start a thought for your designers in the future.
