We are getting ready to order our new 2011 Flex. We show dogs, so white has always been a preference for us to keep the parked vehicle cooler for the critters. I've always liked the white vehicles, and they aren't bad to keep looking relatively clean, since most "dirt" shows up white/gray instead of black.

My question is about some of the other colors and how much they show the road dirt. We had a green car that always looked dirty to me. One of us wants the white again, but one of us is in love with the candy red with a white top. We kind of like the Mediteranean blue with silver top too.

Any experience with any of those colors and how quickly they show dirt? FYI, I'm leaning toward the red and white. Sharp looking!

Okay, so I changed my mind when I got to the dealership. I ended up ordering a white platinum metallic tri-coat. I know from experience that white is easier on dirt than red, and I decided the red two tone would be fun for awhile, but I'm sure I'd get tired of it, and feel like I was driving a taxi cab, so I opted for the white.
