Bold Beige Metallic

How come so few people own the Gold Sedan 8th gen?
Everyone seems to love this color but you hardly ever see it on the road.
Here in the Northeast I might see 1 a week if that.

Who is "everyone?" Beige colored cars are most often purchased by "older" people.

All ages - I am 25, the majority of people tell me the gold Accord is their favorite.

Maybe they said "least favorite". Not sure if it's still called Naples gold or not but first thing I think of is all the old people in Naples, FL enjoying their "golden" years.

I actually think the 8th gen sedan looks good in every available color, including Mystic Green Metallic.
Gold, however, would be my last choice.

I don't think I've seen a single green Accord on this forum, and very few of the Dark Cherry Pearl.

Apparently, the sedan colors of choice for DA members are silver (ASM), charcoal (PMM), black (NBP), and white (WDP).

When we were shopping accord's these were the only two colors available in our area. The dark cherry is a "weird" color for me. The wife was "ok" with the mystic green. She decided she wanted an SUV anyway, so no accord for her.

I am not a fan of gold cars at all. Everyone has their own tastes, and I'm glad some people like/love them. I just would never consider it.

Nice graph. What is funny is that I'm considering making my car green, lol. It would be expensive though, maybe next year after my personal loan is paid off. Kind of this color:

Not a personal fan of gold cars, my grandmother used to have a gold Cavalier, definitely not my taste. However, everyone has different preferences, I personally haven't see any gold accords here in Weston, FL.
