I miss my RTL. This thread will tell you everything great about the Ridgeline that is not common to any other vehicle. Please read on. Sorry, I deleted my opening post on this thread.

4. The middle seat in the back has a secret hiding headrest. Pull up on it and you have a headrest for the rear seat middle passenger!

Fellow ROC!! Please add to this... :)
Now, that I did not know Tex! Thanks!

Sliding Sun Visors...

Can't take credit for finding it but a while ago someone posted that if you pull your sun visor out towards the door and pull back, it slides.

The front and rear roof-mounted lights can be turned on and off by pressing on the light itself. I know, this might be totally basic and intuitive, but not for me! I was stuck opening and closing the doors to light the inside of the cabin until I gave the manual a (better) read and found that out.

Press and hold the unlock button a second time on the keyfob and all door windows will open.

Twist the key in the door lock a second time in the same direction and hold and the windows will open or close!

After turning off the ignition key, the windows will still run up or down for a few minutes or until you open the door.

Just leave that hard to reach cruise control button on...it will stay in that position until you change it--use the wheel buttons for controling the cruise.

This thread has the vibe of a forum header I have been considering suggesting called Did you Know...

Did you know that when you press the unlock on your key once it will open the drivers side door.
If you press it twice it will open all the doors
If you hold the button on the second press all the windows will open.

Did you know that there is a pen clip and business card holder built into the lid of the center console.

This should bring out lots of little nuances about this great truck that everyone can learn from.

Nice job! :D

Did you know that your rear window slides open and closed? Well of course you did

Did you know that you have a GIANT Cooler in the rear of your truck? Well of course you did

Did you know that this truck has so many cool little things that I can hardly stand it? Well of course you did


MAN! DOES THIS TRUCK ROCK OR WHAT???? O YEH!




P.S. No that's not me, I just googled the image. :)

The engine air intake is mounted at the top of the engine compartment. This helps with the towing capacity and helps to cross deep water (I can attest to this). Drive responsibly.

The AM/FM antenna is built into the roof part that extends beyond the back window.

The XM antenna (if equipped) is the bump on the roof.

The stability control is fun to drive with around corners. Drive responsibly.

Under normal driving conditions the truck is front wheel drive. Under hard acceleration the truck is rear wheel drive. Under slippery conditions, the truck is whatever it needs to be to be safe.

The "bumps" or "ridges" on the side view mirrors is to reduce wind noise.

I think the ridge on the center of the dash (above the speedometer) is a cool design feature that screams, you are in a Ridgeline.

THIS TRUCK FRIGGIN' ROCKS

er....it's got two horns. Having removed the bumper, I know that :)

The optional bed cargo net can be folded in half and mounted vertically against the back of the cabin to hold smaller items.

The spare wheel can be mounted on the inside of the bed - handly if you know in advance you're going to be loaded up and don't want to risk having to unload if you have a flat.

Actually the antenna is the "bubbly" portion that's directly in front of your rear-view mirror (at least in the RTS w/o XM, that's where it's at).

Did you know that there is a small "lip" over your rear slider? That's in case it rains and you forget to slide the window closed, water won't get inside

I believe the "bubbly" portion on the windshield around the rearview is to block the sun between the visors. The antenna is mounted in the roof, under the metal skin.

Like I said, this was going to be fun as well as informative. I did not know this! Thanks...there is another thread somewhere about the same subject matter, that is quite long. You folks are doing a great job! Keep it going! :) How about this....in the door arm rests, there are liners in the bottom of the pull cavities. I found this when I was vacuuming and the liner got sucked up out of the cavity!! :cool: In case you spill something in there the liner can come out to get cleaned!! the engineer who thought of this must have been under tremendous pressure to come up with a new idea that no one else have thought of!!! LOL! :p

I thought it was the black/bubbly material around the edge of the windshield.
