Great article and keep in mind it was Dan Neil (author of this article) who wrote one of the first glowing articles on the Ridgeline in 2005 (he wrote for the LA Times then). His article then and similar good words in Consumer Reports are what convinced me to buy one of the first Ridgelines in 2006. You can consider his current review in context of that one, as he notes his support for the prior look of the vehicle, but acknowledges that it had a more narrow support base.More praise for the new Ridgeline:
The Honda Ridgeline: Why You Can?t Ignore this Midsize Truck Anymore - WSJ
Funny that most all of the respected publications (Car&Driver, WSJ, etc.) like the Ridgeline as a 'truck' and many people posting don't..I liked the one who said his daughter liked it, so it wasn't for him...whassup with that?:act024:Read the post by readers after the article, typical 'it's not a real truck' machismo.
I would not want to be on the wrong end of a .380. I read somewhere that the lowly .22 caliber is responsible for the most gun-related deaths on an annual basis. The gun guys will tell you that they want the bigger calibers to make sure they take care of whatever they're aiming at....my response would be, "if you're that much into guns, maybe you should work on being a better shot under pressure!".....those same guys will tell you that a .380 is not a real gun, either. I had one of them say that to me about my small conceal carry when out on a long summer ride and I asked him what he was carrying. He said "nothing, I left it at home, too big to conceal in this weather." I smiled and said: ".380, for the win!" He got flustered and stomped off.
