Right around 10:50 of this recent review of the 2017 Honda Ridgeline, you can watch Roman Mica of TFL become inconsolable about VTEC kicking in. I can relate, it does make a lot of Hondas a lot more driveable. It can take an otherwise boring car and make it howl for a second before the gear changes.

I’m not sure how impact it is in a Ridgeline, but Roman is really feeling it, hard.
