Hey guys I’m finally thinking on buying a LTD this weekend since I dont wont to wait for the turbo any more. I prefer the white one over the silver one but the issue I have is that we already own a white vehicle (CC Silverado). Has anyone owned two cars of the same colors at the same time? Any regrets on it?

I have not owned both color cars at the same time...but I was also torn between the white and the silver. But after reading a few posts on how hard the pearl white was to keep clean, and the fact that I live in Buffalo I decided to go with the Radiant Silver. Its gorgeous. No regrets :thumbsup:

Silver was the new white about ten years ago. I think silver cars are the easiest to keep clean. They show very little dirt and can go longer between washes. I have had dark cars which are the worst when it comes to keeping them clean. White or beige which the Sonata is closer to is not that hard to keep clean and sure makes for a classy car. I have seen the new La Crosse in the same color and it is sharp.

I own a white Limited and it truly is gorgeous. Pictures just don't do it justice. But I have to admit that the silver ones I've seen on the road look surprisingly good. Silver is probably the easiest color to keep clean but so far the white hasn't been that bad.

I would also say silver. Just think about it.....few years down the road, a white will not look as good compare to silver. Like everyone says, silver is easy to keep looking clean even when dirty, hides scratches and imperfections really well. Although all cars do get dirty, do you want a dirty car to look dirty or a dirty car that looks clean? In the end, it's your money so the decision is yours. :thumbsup:

I would say silver even though I own two black cars. Yes it is hard to keep black cars clean and it does make me mad to see them dirty but I do love spending a few hours each week cleaning them.

I have a white limited with tan interior and love it. My brother has brand new white truck, my mom has a white E class Mercedes, and my sister has a white Lexus. Only my dad has a black Cadillac. We all have tan interiors...

So we are the 'white car family' during Sunday dinner... and while we didn't plan it, the cars look AWESOME next to each other outside. My sister in law now wants a white Buick to fit in... :)

My wife and I had a very long debate over white vs silver for our new SE. We bought the white and are extremely happy with the pearl white SE. We have a silver honda del sol and if the Sonata in silver was a bright silver like the del sol I would have gone for the silver. In a limited with the black sunroof the white pearl looks great.

I bought the silver LTD and also have a 2008 silver Honda Civic coupe. The paint on the Sonata is so much better than anything I have seen....smooth as glass. Even tho I have 2 silver vehicles parked side by side, they really do not look the same. I like silver because of the low maint required to keep it looking clean :thumbsup:

Pick a color and go with it....you will love it. :beer:

I have two other white vehicles in addition to my Pearl White Sonata. I have absolutely no regrets.

When I decided that I needed a new car, I thought I would get a different color other than white. I wanted to see either the silver or maybe the camel (beige). When I went out to the local dealer, I checked out all of the various colors. I wasn't interested in any of the darker colors and then walked right by the silver and camel. Down at the end of the line was a Pearl White LTD that drew me to it like a magnet.

As i got closer, I just couldn't believe the Pearl white paint on the LTD as it just sparkled in the sun. There is a reason they charge extra for the Pearl White color. I purchased the car with the camel interior/NAV package and couldn't be more pleased.

All three of my vehicles are different shades of white, but the Pearl White Sonata with the metallic flake in the paint stands out from the others.

I don't purchase cars based on what it looks like when it is dirty. I purchase cars based on what it looks like in its best condition.

Bottom line is: Deciding on a color of a car is a personal decision. The above is just my opinion.

Here is a picture of my Pearl White Sonata. Believe it or not, I took this picture right after returning from an 1,800 mile trip and it did have a little dirt on it.

I have a white LTD and it is simply stunning. Like some who own a pearl white have already said, it is just beautiful in the sunlight. Initially I couldn't decide between black or white but
eventually I went with the white and couldn't be happier. The car looks so elegant in white. Here is a pic of mine.
