When Paint Color Matters

My mother’s car used to be a really nice shade of green. However, now that the years have begun to catch up with her car, she is seeing the green begin to chip off of her car exterior. Did you know that green was actually the most popular color for her car back when my father surprised her with it for her birthday back in 1998? Today, I’m not sure what the most popular color is for selling a car, but I know that I would personally not choose green as my first choice.

Paint color can be a huge deal when it comes to purchasing a car, repainting a car as well as re-selling a car. When I was looking around to buy my first car back in 2007, I noticed that there was a significant price difference between two vehicles that had the same specs. When I asked the salesman why there was such a price difference when all of the options were pretty much the same, do you know that he actually told me it was because the paint color was different on one car versus the other? It turns out that a silver car is more expensive than a white one.

Paint color isn’t the only color option that people look at when it comes to buying a car. Rather, people are also looking at things such as interior color, etc. However, the exterior paint color is a huge deal because the more popular the color, the easier the car will sell. Don’t believe me? Have you ever seen someone driving around in a brown colored car (or just imagine some awful color in your mind) and wondered why on earth someone would buy a car in that particular color? What about a color car that was so bright it hurt your eyes to look at it?

We all have options when it comes to buying a car with a certain type of paint color, but who knew that the kind of paint color you get could have such an impact on the resale value of your car? For instance, a car that is silver will typically sell much faster than a car that is green or brown. It also depends on the area that you live in. If you are concerned about what kind of color is the most popular in the area that you live in, you usually don’t have to look to far to figure it out. Just look around you as you drive on the road. For instance, this is one of the ways that I discovered how Jeep Cherokees and Ford F-150s were so popular in the area that I used to live in.

When it comes down to it all, ultimately, you are the one who has to be happy with the car that you are driving around in. Things to be concerned about if you purchase a car that is white or a car that is black is that with a car that is white, while it may not show nicks as well as other cars, it will certainly show dirt much more easily than a car that is gray or silver. For a car that is black, you have to worry about cleaning it all the time as well because not only will it show dirt and nicks more easily, but it will also tell on you when you don’t wash it properly- leaving streaks visible to everyone around you.

Paint color is more of a cosmetic thing, but when the cosmetic aspect of it all affects your wallet at the end of the day, you have to take certain things into account such as how long you plan to keep the car (I.e. for life in which case it won’t matter what color you get) or whether you are planning on switching it up every few years. All of this (and paint color) will play into your decision to purchase a certain type and color of car.
