I read the entire owner's manual tonight after taking delivery of a new Ridgeline this afternoon. Every page has a piece of information that was unanticipated. Incredible vehicle.

The best line I found in the manual is: "it is not practical or possible to warn you about all the hazards associated with operating or maintaining your vehicle. You must use your own good judgement."

Uh-oh, we got a potential problem right here in river city....

The most surprising information was about adjusting the compass in the mirror to compesate for anomolies in the Earth's magnetic field.

Fantastic!!!!

We should not wonder, six months from now, why people have left this forum, because the signal to noise ratio has become unmanageable, mainly due to people asking the same questions over and over and over and over and over again; questions they could have easily answered themselves if they just took a tiny, miniscule, puny, immeasurable bit of initiative first.

Well, without casting aspersions, I must tell you that the owner's manual is incredibly well written and informative. On almost every page I was surprised by some aspect of the Ridgeline that was dissimilar to other vehicles I've owned. The engineering, thought, and technical writing that are presented in this manual are a real lesson in manufacturing, corporate integrity, ingenuity, and not a little bit of pizzazz.

The manual convinces me of the extreme value of this vehicle.

My wife works in the corporate world and she said, "do you have any idea how much it cost Honda to produce that manual?" Way more than the retail cost of a dozen Ridgelines.

I was hoping others had read it so they could share their favorite tidbit.

I agree Dave and although I joke and really have not sat down with the manual to read it, I was versed on much of what was written many months ago. Not to mention at the "Ride and Drive" in February, we went over a Ridgeline Booklet that we had to basically test on at the end of the seminar. It was informative and well written. I have showed my smaller version of the manual given to me by Honda to many people. They find it fascinating as well. I only wish I could have brought one home with me to share with all of you. It included the comparison of the Frontier and the Tacoma. We had both in the conference room sitting next to the Ridgeline. It was fun to crawl around in one, go to another then to the Ridgeline. NO COMPARISON as far as I was concerned. And you know how picky woman can be.
We have a great vehicle here folks. I now I don't have to tell those of you who have one, but to those of you considering it....Just take a test drive and your list of questions from this forum and you will most likely take her home with you. Sorry to digress.
Carry on manual and non-manual readers.
:p
