I don't see how paint color can be related to a production error. Configuration, like sunroof, roofrack, etc, maybe. But black does not produce more noise than silver. Now if we are talkng owners......FlaDan said:Just curious. Are there certain colors that have the wind noise problem?
Actually the noise has been attributed to color due to a problem with the robotic windshield fitter having a problem detecting the edges properly.Webwader said:I don't see how paint color can be related to a production error.

You make the mathematician and statistician in me so proudnevadagarth said:I don't mean to be a party pooper, but a survey like this will not yield any productive results. The number of responses depends on who responds with what color vehicle they own.
In order for it to be meaningful, you would have to get a set number of each color and ask the question.
According to the color poll, there are more silver Ridgeline's than the other colors, so the wind noise vs. color survey may be skewed towards silver. On the flip side there are less white Ridgeline's so the whites may be under represented.
If the robots truly have problems seeing certain colors or color combinations (interior color vs. exterior color contrast) then the color should be known by the Honda Engineers. If the wind noise is only the first certain number of Ridgelines (until the window seals were replaced) then that would depend on if Honda produced more Red than Blue in the first batch. If equal numbers of each color were produced and the Robots don't have eyesight problems, then the color vs. wind noise should be evenly distributed.
