My issue is that the paint suffers after just a few years of normal washing. When I say normal, I'm talking the local car wash places. I have a 6-year old black car, and the swirl marks are quite noticeable. I don't think this would be the case if I had (e.g.) a silver, white, blue (pick a color) car. Am I wrong in this? The reason I ask is because I'm considering another black car. If you've had black cars, is this your experience too? Or have I just been taking it to a place that has crappy towel/service? (Also keep in mind, it is a 4WD--I'm thinking about taking it camping, etc. Leaves, branches brushing the sides.) *What is a better option when it comes to this sort of thing? Pickup truck or SUV, going camping/beach: Gray? Silver? White? Blue?
