A quick check of cars.com currently indicates 34 red and 174 white ... over 5X as many whites as reds.

I, however, am stymied by the $599 "documentation fee" extorted by the local dealers.

Her ol' 2003 CR-V's running well ... so we'll prolly wait until the rush subsides, and eventually do our shopping in neighboring, entrepreneurial New Hampshire.

There's a Red EX-L I saw today in the Sacramento Area. I have to say, it looked much better in person than I thought it would, it's a bit darker than I thought it would be. However, no manual transmission in red means it's not an option for me.

Yes, police are looking at red cars. They usually get pulled over first.

True... don't ask me how I know.

I've also heard red fades faster than any other colour, though maybe that's changed with modern paints.

I've noticed on not only Hondas, but on other makes as well that the flat reds tend to discolor toward pink over time if they aren't taken care of.

Only downside with red is it fades like crazy if left out in the sun a lot. Keeping it out of the sun will go a long way in keeping it looking good.
