Just went to the showroom and picked out a 2006 Civic Sedan for lease.
The wife unfortunately wants the Shoreline Mist color scheme which
comes with the Ivory Interior fabric. IMHO, the Ivory will take a
beating with stains and dirt from the kids. Does anyone have
experience with this lite colored interior? Would Scotch Guard be a
solution, or do I go for broke and really try to convince her she is
making a mistake. It's going to be her car. Thanks in advance, I know
this isn't an earth shattering problem, but the feedback would be
I'd opt for the Scotch Guard for the interior (carpet and seats). I would

This may be not as relevant since my 98 Accord has Ivory leather but it
still looks top notch after almost 8 years of medium use. On the fabric,
Scotch Guard and regular vacuuming would go a long way to preserve its clean
My white 98 Civic EX came with a gray interior.
Talked to a guy that has a white 05 Civic EX, and he was not happy that
Honda only offered the ivory interior with the white exterior; said he

Where does Honda get the idea that an ivory interior is better on a
white car then gray or black?
Well, they probably rounded up some people at the nearest mall and told them
they'd be paid $50 to be part of a "focus group." You know the rest.
There's no accounting for taste; you've heard that before. My Accord is
white, and I love its ivory interior. My previous car was a white 97 Civic
with a gray interior. I prefer ivory.
