My 16 year old son totaled my 2006 Amazon Green RTL Sunday. The worst part (since he is ok) is that green is no longer available.

I have been unable to find a mocha or polished metal to look at. Everything around here is blue or cherry.

In real life, which color is closest to the Amazon Green: Mocha or Polished metal?

Also, does the black get swirl scratches easy? I don't want to spend my life polishing and waxing my Ridgeline. I keep my car inside, wash it every couple of weeks and watch where I park it but I don't want black to be a burden or source of stress.

Thanks so much for your help!

I used to have a Honda CRV in nighthawk black pearl. never really washed it, and never once had a machine to the paint other than when it was detailed right before I traded it. it didn't have a single swirl mark and the paint looked awesome.

my RL though, is one big swirl mark - I assume that means someone didnt do something properly? when it has a film of dust or it's shady it's not a big deal, but when it's clean and in the sun, you can see the swirl marks 30 feet away. :act051:

We have an 07 Aberdeen Green Metallic RTS and love the hue on the truck. Also like the Steel blue which is gone..........but that's Honda.

Glad your son is OK!

I am getting ready to pull the trigger on a dark cherry replacement for my Amazon Green that was totaled. I know it is a totally different color but it was the only color I could begin to like.

My question is:
Does anyone have odds on chances that Honda will bring back a green in the 2011's?

Slim to none.
