Exclamation Problem

I have a black Cobalt and it seems like two days after I wash it, it looks dirty again. Since it is black it seems like every speck of dirt will show. What is the best way to prevent the dirtyness? I do not want to use a car cover, if possible. Also, could you recommend a certain color where dirt will not show as much and a business that will do a good job of repainting?

You're going to repaint your car because it looks dirty sometimes? That's crazy. Just get a car cover.

ValhallaAwaits, I heard that a car cover can scratch your paint. Is that true? Still what paint color do you recommend?

Just wash your car and put the car cover on. You're driving a chevy cobalt, not even a $50,000 car, which I still wouldn't bother putting a cover on. Take the time to keep washing it and don't fret. Everyone's car get dirty. I have a black car and I just wash it a little more often to keep it clean.
