All the hand wringing is moot, Civic is #1 compact for the past few months. I got a good deal on one with minor hail damage for $4000 off sticker. Got the HF model and gets 40 on highway without electric motor to charge, nor a risky turbo, or complex, shuddering, wacky 'dry clutch' trans.
Sure, I'd love to have had XM, but I got a poratable one to plug into AUX port for $79.
For years I drove Ford compacts and faced critics, and no problem facing picky, snarky, uppity, critics now.
Oh and BTW, the Canadian plant can't build them fast enough, per a factory worker online.
#37 of 38 Unwarranted fears

Even though the 2013 came out later than the dealer told me, there were more than a few 2012s left when they did come out. Just as I hoped I was able to get a good deal on a 2012. I test drove both cars over the same roads and decided a liked the softer ride in the 2012 and the cosmetic upgrades on the 2013 just didn't make that much difference to me. Sure I would have liked the backup camera. But I can add that and even have it display on the IMID. I just drove the car home today and I am so thrilled. It's my first new car in 26 years.
#38 of 38 Dealer still has 2012 in stock

They still had a dozen 2012s when I went to the dealer few days ago. After test driving the 2012, I was satisfied with how it drove even though 2013 looked much much better. But they wouldn't come down more than $3k so just went with 2013 since it was nearly $3k off also. It was a no brainer. Glad I bought the 2013!
