That's funny! My wife just bought a 2010 MDX Advance / Tech and she loves it. Not to mention most people also compliment the MDX for its looks (inside and out) features and performance. The only flaw I see in the MDX is I feel the accelaration is a bit sluggish when in full auto mode. The Ridgeline's throttle feels more responsive on the highway or when changing lanes at a steady pace.

But I will admit I AM BIASED toward Hondas. My other two cars are an '01 Acura Type-R and an '08 Civic Si 4door.

Kind of telling that he would post his article without any way of contacting him to respond.

Some would even say cowardly...



This is what passes for journalism these days.

You can fit 4x8 drywall in the ridge can't you?
Most crew cab trucks (speaking about full size Chevy, Ford, Dodge) are about 5'5" long with the tailgate up. They're 1/2 foot longer than the RL and a little wider, and a little deeper. I believe the RL's bed is comparable, and slightly wider and deeper than other mid-size short bed p'ups. The RL will hold the 4x8 drywall, but will hang over the lowered tailgate by about 1 1/2 feet. I'd tie your load down, but you'll be fine.

There is no greater display of ignorance....than the expression of an uninformed opinion.

Re: Possibly the most retarded article on the Ridgeline EVER!

What about the comment, "Sure, my old Fordís bed may have looked like hell after its three-and-half decades of service, but it wasnít anything that couldnít be remedied by a spray in bedliner. The Ridgeline, on the other hand, may find its bed has simply worn away just after half that period of time".

OK...can't put a spray in bedliner in a RL bed? Also, "worn away"...? Has anybody "worn away" a RL bed?

I especially love the "Of course, further inspection of the body brought up a few other sore points with the truckís build; most notably that downright atrocious panel alignment and subsequently irregular gaps all over the place.", comment. I think he was looking at that "borrowed" pickup he spoke so fondly of.

What a moron. Well said, 3ftputt...well said...

Great point! I'd like to read what positive points MT made, that he did not agree with.

Re: Possibly the most retarded article on the Ridgeline EVER!

There is so much wrong with his comments that I don't belive he drove one. Maybe he looked at one in a dealership.

The object to life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, with a big smile shouting, "Holy S#*t ...what a ride"!

Re: Possibly the most retarded article on the Ridgeline EVER!

I'm ashamed to live in the same part of the country as this dolt. I apologize on behalf of my fellow BC'ers. This guys is an idiot.

I just read the part about the door trim (WTF?) has he even sat in a RL? I don't see how it is possible to rest your arm on the seam where the two interior panels meet, that's down beside the arm rest. Is he talking about the top of the trim near the window? I can see maybe a molding issue on the very edge, but that seems like an awkward way of resting your arm (there is an arm rest) besides isn't there something about not putting part of your body there due to the airbag sensor? His article is so poorly written that its almost impossible to understand his intent. He must have had a deadline and nothing to write about so he picked what he thought would be an easy target.

Funny, when he talks about driving his old massive truck in Vancouver and people staying out of his way - probably due to all the blue smoke trailing from it. I see these beasts on the road all the time - they're nothing to look longingly at. As a matter of fact, most should be legislated off the road so we and our children can breath. This guy is living in the stone age.
