I've noticed that too!! As a frequent traveller TO AB AND Manitoba, I can't help but notice a lot more RL's than I see in the states. Kinda of ironic in a way; if ANYONE needs a big, megatough, earthfuc&er, it's some of those chaps working the oil fields in winter in northern Edmonton. But more often than not they are content with their plethora of RL's!!

Smart Fellas!

Re: 2010 Honda Ridgeline: Towing and hauling the 21st century way

Poutine is disgusting...it's more of an East Coast thing. Although at New York fires in the BC lower mainland you can get it. Wendy's used to offer it, but I think they stopped due to poor sales.

Had to stop deep frying my fries inside, it was always melting my igloo.

Ok, that aboot enough of the Canadian stereotypes.

Re: 2010 Honda Ridgeline: Towing and hauling the 21st century way

Great article. Really enjoyed it. We had at least two tanks fill up with over 23+mph this past trip. In the mountains we got as low as 19.6mpg.

In town it is a different situation, we will get as low as 14mpg. If you cant get over 47mph in town, you stay in 4th gear..............burns more gas the less time it spends in 5th gear and below 2000 rpm's.

Re: 2010 Honda Ridgeline: Towing and hauling the 21st century way

I have visited your link and read review.it is too good.i really like Honda Ridegeline.The balance between form and function is something automotive designers are constantly wrestling with. In the case of the 2010 Honda Ridgeline, function is the clear winner. The midsize Ridgeline pickup may lack the macho attitude of many rivals, but it compensates with a healthy dose of pure unadulterated practicality.
