Possibly moving to the southeast U.S. in the future, SC to be exact. I own a black car with a light, "ivory" colored cloth interior. Ceramic window tint all around except the windshield, and I use a windshield sunshade.

Anyone regret a black car that lives in a hot climate?

Or is it not that bad?

Starting to wish I went with white, but I bought it before I knew about moving.

I have a black car with black leather interior. I run the seat coolers for a few seconds and it's good. Don't regret it.

I cooked an egg on my black car in Florida many years ago. I'm thinking the color won't make a huge difference unless you make a habit of sitting on the hood of your car in the middle of the summer in Florida.

You’ve already done enough to keep the car cool.

Black vehicles do not get noticeably hotter. The interior will get hot from convection if the vehicle is closed up, so just let it vent.

It DOES make a difference in my experience. Not only that, but when you drive the lighter car will cool off a little faster.

I had a maroon car in Southern California. I have not purchased a dark color since...

I had a dark grey Frontier for a couple years and six years later I bought a white Frontier. You could feel there was less heat coming from the roof and the white truck cooled off faster in warm weather.
