Not sure I understand what you mean by proper setting. I mean normal snow and ice type stuff you can do in any car if you drive with some sense, and you shouldn't really try to tackle much more than that in any vehicle unless it is a snow plow. You would be surprised how many snow storms I have driven through in my little Civic without any problem while there are SUVs piled in the median. It isn't about being able to handle it, it is about using common sense and slowing down to deal with the condition and now over correcting on it. The Ridgeline does have a form of traction control which should help in normal winter travel, but if you are planning to tackle snow directly at slower speeds you may want to turn off the VSA and lock VTM-4. VSA would stop all wheels spinning if it notices that they are slipping, which may be something you need to allow in some snowy conditions.BillB said:I'm with Shark on this one. Interesting video, but it would have been more educational if the driver spoke more about the settings he expected the truck to be in for the potential buyer trying a simple environment like he was on. Obviously not designed to be in the Baja race stright of the assembly line and possibly over engineered with safety features tha may prohibit alterations to run on an even slightly tougher course than the video. I personally will need to go through snow and ice and would welcome anyone with more insight to the proper settings and mindset for this truck in those conditions. Thanks.
