White looks good on lots of cars. Did you just happen to end up with white by chance or seek it out to have two white vehicles? My neighbor has two suv's that are deep red like a burgundy.

Thank y'all 🙏 I plan to keep it for a long haul; it is 2.4l with CVT powertrain; I can tell you it drives just my Mazda6 or even better; this CVT is tuned and it is different than the one in CRV, it is more engaging to drive

I also like white cars.....black and silver are my least favorite although Mazda has a "Liquid Silver' that is very rich looking....I could live with it. Do you know if it's a lease turn in?...I'm always leery of buying almost new used cars because I worry that the owner had problems....which wouldn't necessarily be the case with a lease...

I thought you had added say a Duralube or Slick 50 oil additive and a matching sticker to the rear of a car that you already had in your vehicle harem... Guaranteed to add 20 hp with that added LOL

Some white vehicles show the gaps in the body panels, door, hood, etc.... much more than other colors.

Yes, white cooler in the hot climates or sun. Good consideration. Also, good plug about the way that CVT feels and drives. Many drivers may appreciate that input as CVT got off to an "iffy" reputation for a while with spirited drivers / performance feel. One of my favorite cars my dad owned when I was growing up was a '71 Vette in white with saddle tan leather interior. Classy and sporty. He had a '91 Allanté as those colors too.

honestly, I'm very impressed with CVT behavior on this car; there is no delay from the start, no whining noise, up to speed is a breeze and shifts are crisp; hardly you would guess it is a CVT

totally on the point; also, those black fender covers in trucks or SUVs, if they big or simply inappropriate the car looks just odd and yes the engine is 2.4l so I'm avoiding that major maintenance associated with V6 Honda engines at a 100K mile stone
