I really like it too and I know I would have to sacrifice the black on black look if I got a 2014. I feel as if I could talk them down to 20,000.
I don't think I would be able to get a 2014 with all these features for any price near that. But If I bought a car that is already 2 years old I would have to consider getting some sort of extended warranty since its only 3yr/35,000.
So that makes me hesitant about buying it or just going brand new and giving up the black on black.
I bought my 2014 Compass Latitude at the end of April. I was also considering a super low mileage 2012. I wasn't sure about the CVT until I drove the new 2014's 6 speed automatic. To me, very noticeable difference -- in favor of the new 6 speed. Just feels better to me, and gave me a better sense of "power" from the car on the road. I like to gun it on highway entrance ramps... and the new transmission handled that sort of thing better.
Otherwise, I mean, really... they're the same, haha. For me the transmission was too big a deal, so I went new 2014.
