Any regrets with Alloy interior?

Anyone have any regrets with the lighter interior color? We are trying to decide between Alloy or black seats. We like the look of the alloy but it seems like it would be hard to keep clean.

No regrets really. I've only noticed shoe marks on the back of the first row seat and also fingerprint smudges on the visor. I'm sure these will wipe away but I haven't bothered to yet.

My only complaint about the interior in general is the chrome ring around the wheel. It's cold in the winter and can be hot in the summer if the van has been parked in the sun for a long time. If they ever remove that ring on future models I'll definitely be swapping it out.

No regrets at all, however being retired it's just me and my wife so we don't have to contend with young children and their sticky fingers and such.

No regrets. I like the alloy. I agree with @konnerbllb about the metal ring on the steering wheel. What I regret is having a van with BLACK carpet though because its very hard to keep clean.

We have had ours now for about 8 months and 10k. So far no regrets. We have 2 young kids in car seats with seat protectors under them, and do not allow food outside of maybe dry cereal and water cups - but we would do the same with a black interior.

I will say that the light gray leather seats of our previous T&C had more issues with blue color transfer from jeans for some reason - no such problem so far with the Pacifica's alloy seats.

For the 5 weeks I was able to drive my PacHy, the alloy seats were fine.

This forum really had me scared of the perforated leather tearing and the blue jean dye transfer... but after driving in a Touring L loaner with black leather seats during most of the summer, I much prefer the alloy for keeping the interior cooler.

No regrets, I don't know if its psychological but to me it seems like the interior is cooler than my other cars with the all black interior. That alone makes it worth it for the Texas summer we are having.

I have congac/toffee/alloy which is not as light as black/alloy. The sides of the seats are darker.
Definitely better than black in the hot Southern California sun.
