If you have dirt roads around, go with the silver and avoid dark colors.

I got the Royal Blue Pearl on my 06 Accord (or whatever color is closest to it). I almost went for the Graphite Pearl, but they didn't have any on the lot in the model/transmission I was looking for. So either of those two colors (I voted for both!)

typical dvdtalk response - it is a boring japanese appliance with no soul or personality that I wouldn't be caught dead it because I am too cool, so it doesn't matter what color you get it's still an accord.

The red is a really nice color. We almost bought one earlier this year.

well stop breaking them

Black = too hard to clean

They would have to discount the black one by an extra 30% for me to even consider it.

and the Sapphire Blue Pearl, just looks bad. Any of the others would be fine.

Yes, especially if you like your car to show every speck of dirt and every swirl mark, scuff or scratch and enjoy cleaning your car every other day.

Black is a pain in the ass. It looks good three ways - new, wet and from a distance.

I'd like to see what that cool blue metallic looks like in-person. Sounds interesting.

But in general, my advice would be to buy a 2007 Nissan Altima. Far better looking car.

I was looking at the altima, but I can't beat the monthly payment on a new accrod..

I am really torn between black and graphite. I always wanted black leather and that is why I am leaning toward the black car.

I don't mind cleaning my car everyday....

I'm miffed that Honda doesn't offer any shade of green as a color choice for their Accords or Civics.

It's hard to tell from such a small pic/sample but I would go w/ the Carbon Bronze Pearl or one of the silver metallics. Even if there are no dirt roads other colors tend to show regular grime quicker than silver/grey. Of course if you're one of those who actually washes their car every weekend then go w/ which ever color you like best

That's actually what we were looking for, dark green with tan interior, which would have been similar to our previous Accord. We were surprised at the limited colors and combinations available.

Well I narrowed my choice to buy the car from 2 deallers. I am leaning to black on black. Now I need to decide which dealler.... What do you guys think about mudflaps on the car? I have them on my current car but sometimes I hate cleaning around them...

wow, graphite pearl pulled ahead... The graphite pearl is probably as difficult to clean as the black.... so hopefully thats not why people are voting for it. It really is a nice color..

If you guys had a choice on the color of interior, would you want gray leather or black leather?

I just had my 06 LX-SE washed today and it looks great! I chose Alabaster Silver since it's a classic color that was easy to maintain. I ended up with a black interior which is a nice contrast, but would have preferred gray since it hides dust better.

Besides the reasons Altimus Prime gave, black is just plain evil. My dad had some bad accidents with a black Nissan Maxima and had it painted silver.
