Yep! Funny thing with black. It looks fabulous when it is all washed and waxed and looks awful as soon as it gets any dirt.
Now I am of the old make it easy on me school. Many will not like this one. Silver van with a grey interior. It never looks utterly magnificent, but you could haul cattle through the mud in it and it still wouldn't look so bad.
I have four kids - it's a similar situation to the one described above.

I agree that Silver tends to hide dirt well. Beige is OK also, but silver does a better job, IMO.
The absolute worst case scenario would be to have a black car with a black leather interior. On a hot summer day, you probably could cook on those leather seats

Well the solution to not "cooking on those leather seats" would be not to put leather in them. I recently changed my car's cloth interior for something called "Plush Vinyl" from www.trimcar.com. It doesn't get nearly as hot as leather does, and cools down rapidly.

I would still stay away from black on black. It just not a good combination to have on a vehicle especially in California or Arizona or any hot weather climate region.

I actually live in Florida, and the plush vinyl black cools down within a minute at the most. It's an amazing material, and is so much easier to upkeep than leather, I'm seeing.

My wife are trying to decide between Silver/Gray and Silver/Black. The black interior looks great, but we have some concerns about heat, durability, and showing dirt.
Can anyone with experience with the black leather interior offer advice? We live in the western Virginia hills.

I should emphasize, experience with the combination of a black interior and a lighter colored exterior, such as silver. We're not brave enough for the black/black combination. Thanks.

I'd go silver/gray. Black gets HOT. I have black leatherette in my VW and it's the worst decision I've ever made wrt interior colors.
