    Considering a new leftover 2012? or new 2013

    I'm in the market for a new car. A local dealer has a leftover 2012 LX coupe. $16,900. I am a little nervous about it being the 1st year of the redesign and from all of the negative reviews I read about the car. I test drove it and was happy with the feel of the car. I had no problems with the car.
    I think a 2013 would cost me $1500+ more. I am also considering a 2013 base fit.
    For owners of 2012 civic, are you happy with your car? Do you wish you went with a 2013?
    Any feedback and/or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks

    I personally love my '12 LX coupe. The '13 coupe really didn't change too much. I wouldn't trade my coupe in for a '13.

    Just a side note. While we taking delivery of our '13 Civic EX-L sedan on Saturday, the salesman shared pricing information on the Fit with us. The delta between MSRP and dealer invoice on a Fit Sport was about $500. Not much dicker room there.

    I've gone out to find myself. If I return before I get back, have me wait for me.

    I had a 2010 LX sedan , traded it for a 2012 Si coupe and never understood all the hate for the 2012's, the interior wasn't any better on the 8th gen I had.
    No regrets here as the coupe didn't change much in the new model. I will say the 2013 sedan looks much better on the outside, personally don't care for the fake carbon fiber and chrome trim on the 2013, but I know some people like it.

    They're the same car mostly. The differences are cosmetics, sway bars, steering, and pandora

    Best thing to do is sit in a 13' LX and see if the improved interior is worth the ~$1500 premium.

    The optional black interior and backup camera would be reason enough for me to go with the 13'.

    The sound deadening made a world of difference between the '12 and '13.
