Dark Color or Light Color Vehicles... Does it Matter?

There have been  studies done and opinions proffered by  experts  about car colors. Some studies show that dark exterior cars are definitely hotter, and some show that they  aren't. Some research indicates that dark car exteriors are what makes or breaks the temperature inside the car while  others claim that it doesn't matter, since they all have steering wheels, dash boards and other heat conductors.

Nevertheless .....

  A car with a darker exterior color will get hotter on the inside somewhat faster that a light colored vehicle standing out in the  summer sun but ....after a while they both approximate the same temperature: HOT.

 A vehicle with a darker interior color may get hotter on the inside somewhat faster that a vehicle with a light color interior.

 A vehicle with a leather interior that has been sitting in the  sun will burn your thighs (even through pants!) every time, no matter what color the leather seats are.

 Cracking the windows probably does little to prevent temperatures from rising in the car, but many people do it. Doing this  and leaving your vents open, at least provides a little more ventilation.
What do you do? Get a vehicle you like no matter what the color! 
DO NOT EVER  leave children or pet inside your vehicle in the heat--not even with the windows cracked.  NEVER!  Not for a minute  
Remeber.... IT only takes minutes for the temperature inside a car to get high enough to kill your child or your pet.!
