GM code WA316N - gold
This gold automotive paint color is most commonly known as Gold Mist. The color formulation has been used between 2006 and 2014, primarily by GM. We have records of this color appearing on the following models: Cadillac, Chevrolet, Buick, Chevy Truck, GMC, Impala, Pontiac, Equinox, Saturn, Acadia, Cruze, Yukon, Terrain, Malibu, Aveo, Traverse, and Cobalt. See the full detailed list below.

GM paint manufacturing codes come in two forms, the short 1 to 3 digit model/year code which changes frequently; and beginning in the 1960's a longer 4 digit code which starts with the letters "WA" or "WE". Sometimes called "Fisher Paint codes"; codes beginning with WA are production paints, WE are commercial or special order paints with codes typically starting with '5' (i.e. WE5xxx). Starting in 1994, GM began using a letter as the last digit for all new WA paint codes.

Variations of the exterior paint code WA316N, which may appear on body data tags include: 316N, U316N, and L316N (the prefix U for upper body, or L for lower body). Location of the GM paint code plate varies depending on the year and model of the vehicle common places are on the top or near the top of the back engine compartment shroud panel just behind the steering wheel, hinge pillar of the driver's side door, trunk or rear hatch, side of door, glove compartment, or behind the driver's seat. Check for either the short year/make/model paint code or the longer manufacturing (Fisher) paint code.
