Would you buy a puke green color if it meant saving a few thousand dollars.

I know Lexus has an ugly puke green color available. It is probably one of the least popular colors with good reason. I know there has been one being sold locally but it's been up for months and price has slowly been trickling down. At what point is it worth it? 90% of comparables? 80%? 70%?

I'm fortunate, I buy what I like, not necessarily what I need or can buy cheapest. Color is very important to me as does the entire appearance of the vehicle. Like they say, you only get one shot at a good first impression.

If I wouldn't wear it ...I wouldn't paint my house or drive a car
in the color.
I'm a 'summer'.


I'm not kidding.

To answer your question, I will not buy a car in certain colors. However, for the one you are speaking about I would have to see it. I have a green car but it is a metallic forest green.

I don't think I'd ever drive a black vehicle, they are extremely hard to keep clean and they show the tiniest scratches and imperfections.

I won't buy black because I live in Las Vegas and it's hot here. Most any other color that wasn't too dark would be OK though.

I have to admit color is important to me. Basically I just bought a new truck and it was color that made me decide to buy it. I just happen to see it when buying my wife a new truck. But even then if the truck had not had color choice I liked on interior :I'd probably have passed and not searched further.

I think it depends on the car manufacture and the make and model of Car/Truck/SUV esp. when you get into factory Metallics/Pearl and Two-tone paint jobs

I'm with ya, I'll never buy another black car/bike unless it's a really, really super deal, it's just too much of a PITA keeping up the clean appearance.

But man! When it's right, it'll rival any color for looks.
