After visiting our daughter in NE Arkansas yesterday. We ran into the now Tropica storm Rita. In all places in Jacksonville, the rain was coming down sideway & the winds were gusty all afternoon. At time visibility was so bad a number of use stopped on the hard shoulder, because we could'nt see. It took us over 3 hours to drive the 125 mile home. The Ridgeline was steady as a rock in the wind gusts, & stayed on the highway through all the standing water & so on. The condictions were so bad, we all should have had our heads examined for being out driving in such weather. The only good thing about that trip was the joy & saftty of being in the Ridgeline & I returned 24 MPG. A result of the reduced speed we were alll driving. Honda you have made us a great little truck. :)

I have been using my wifes Ridgeline working insurance claims for hurricane Katrina for the past month... I may not give it back to her. This is a great truck!

So glad you are safe.
I too have experienced monsoon season and Ridgena was the first car I have ever driven that didn't make me nervous. I hope Honda doesn't change a thing. :p

My RL makes me feel really safe. Its so solid feeling through deep rain puddles, I can hardly wait (almost) for the snow! Having all those air bags is reassuring, too.
