My Sorento is Sand Beige. The only issue I had with it was a few spots on the inside of the doors turned a dark brown. I took it back to the dealer, they had it fixed and have had no problems since. They said there must have been a little moisture trapped under the paint which caused the the dark brown spots. It could have happened to any color. I have never heard to stay away from Sand Beige. I will look into that though.
