Looking for used cars for sale in Utah? There are many things to consider, including the total mileage, the gas mileage efficiency, maintenance schedule, overall cost, and the vehicle color.
While the vehicle’s color does not impact its efficiency, it can affect other aspects of car ownership. Consider the following:
- Value – The resale value of a vehicle is significantly affected by its color. It will sell better down the line if it is a desirable hue. Silver and white have alternated as the most popular vehicle color for many years.
- The model of the vehicle – Vehicle color will help or hamper a car’s value, depending on its model. For example, bright yellow may raise the value of a sports car but not a minivan or sedan. The color should suit the model.
- Theft deterrent – Buying a vehicle with a bold color could be a theft deterrent. Vehicles that are bright red, yellow, or orange have a lower rate of theft because they are more easily noticeable than other colors.
- Red cars are not really more expensive – Many people believe that red cars cost more and have a higher risk of being pulled over by the police. Another belief is that red cars are charged higher insurance rates. These notions have no factual basis. If red appeals to you, don’t shy away from it based on these misperceptions.
Of course, personal preference is an important factor, too. Balance your desires with the practical concerns of ensuring a high resale value to decide on the ultimate car color for you.
