Yeah, I'm with ya on that one. Can someone please explain this gibberish?J.Bauer said:.....
But one thing I didn't get...
What are 8 by 10 sheets of plywood?
or even 5 by 8 for that matter?
Maybe I misunderstood.
On the contrary, Honda adjusts the output to meet demand, they just don't over-produce which is what causes the need for incentives. If GM and Ford had followed this practice, they would be in much better shape than they are today.bongus said:If I read the article right, it seems to suggest that by keeping the production volume low, the foreign manufacturers can avoid all the incentives that the Big 3 have to include to move their trucks out of the showroom. I guess for those on the fence about purchasing a Ridgeline, it appears that they (Honda) will not alter their manufacturing output drastically to meet demand. I guess Honda is known to function in this manner so prices should not drop much....so what are you waiting for...stop reading this and buy a Ridgeline!!!!
The likelihood that anyone concerned with Forbes has ever seen, cut, stacked, loaded/unloaded or smelled a sheet of plywood personally is pretty remote.fins2theright said:Yeah, I'm with ya on that one. Can someone please explain this gibberish?
True, this is still a short-bed truck, so 8-by-10 foot sheets of plywood will hang way out the back. But there is enough width between the wheel wells to put a standard, 48-inch-wide sheet into this bed, so a 5-by-8 foot sheet, with the tailgate left down and the wood flagged, would fit just fine.
Other than this paragraph, I have to say this is one of the best reviews I have seen of the Ridgeline......anywhere.
WELL PUT! LOL And we could add to that the same things about mini van competition. Yeah, they ultimatly lost that battle too.3SuperSports said:....They also have the outward attitude that they don't have to take Japanese trucks seriously. That's so stupid I can't even stand it. They said the same thing about Japanese cars back in the early eighties, and look where that got 'em.
