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.
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.

Yeah, The leftover Civic LX coupe would sell for the same price as a base fit high $16's
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.

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.
