White is more visible on a gray day. I like white cars.

well played, sir. that is racist and sexist in one question.
I have an African American girlfriend who says that the easiest way to be targeted for DWB* is to drive a white car.

* Driving While Black

I donít know about white cars but people who drive automatic transmissions most likely are.

I don't think so. My husband has a white Jeep Liberty - with a matte black hood. I don't think it's a "girly car". Before that he had a white Lincoln Navigator.



Some colors seem to be chosen by women more frequently - ice blue, metalic blue and all light blue cars come to mind. . My first car was "baby blue metallic" Datsun 280Z with pale blue velour interipr How early 80s late 70s!



Women like colors more than men. Men seem to gravitate towards black, white, gun metal.

In desert country white is the most popular color. People with black cars find their car is much hotter on the inside after it's been baking in the hot sun.

My last 3 vehicles I purchased were white. They do look nice all cleaned and waxed. After a few weeks of driving in the rain and dirty roads, it doesnt show it that much. Wipe the dirt off a little, and show a clean spot, then wash it. Wow, is that thing white.

Been a huge auto enthusiast my entire life and never heard that white was a women's car...Like you I am also partial to certain types of white cars....I've owned many vehicles...mostly high performance and 4x4s and loved the 1980's Lincoln Town Cars.....had a 81 and a 86 both in silver and than had a 89 in white ( photo ) in near mint condition...one of the coolest cars in my personal fleet.

My personal feelings are white is not for all cars..but certain cars look great in white....an older model Vette in white looked sharp...recently saw a new Jeep Grand Cherokee in white and that too looked awesome...

White is great in warm climate areas as it reflects the heat and it also is a easy to work with and match for body shops if need to shoot a car in white after repairing it...

Best of everything with your 03 pearl white Cadillac....bet it looks awesome in that color ...post a pic if you feel like it but if not that is fine of course...good luck.

Never cared for white cars. White is for refrigerators.

I drive a white midsize sedan and I'm a 26 year old man.

I don't think there's much of a gender bias. I would say that slightly more white cars are driven by females than males, but it's not a huge difference. Maybe a 55/45 split?
