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
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.methodtim said: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).
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!! 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!DWdrums said: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
