2009 Ridgeline RTL (with nav) in Bali Blue Pearl
Wow, that sounds a little too coincidental, but crazier things have happened for some seemingly silly reasons in vehicle designs, well silly to me. Honda calls that square spot on the armrest an "activity tray." Maybe it's for a drinking "activity?" ;-)... When you pull down the "arm rest" in the back seat of a G1, there is a square-shaped cup holder. That cup holder fits a fifth bottle of Jack Daniels perfectly. I learned this many years ago when my brother in law set his bottle in there during a tailgate at a concert. I don't know if Gary or some other member of the original design team was a big fan of JD, but it seems strange that this cupholder is the exact size and shape that it is without any other reason.
