2012 vs 2013 Patriot

I'm looking at getting a new Patriot and I have two options. The 2012 or 2013. The 2012 is the altitude edition with a sunroof and the other is a 2013 with a uconnect 430 system. I'm leaning towards the 2012 unless there are some some changes that were made between the years. Thanks !

2013 will hold value longer. Id wait for 2014 and get an automatic.

No changes till 2014, where you get a 6speed auto vs the CVT on fwd and FDI models.

not even the engine, just the transmission. There is a different paint color, maybe a few interior materials, but nothing you would notice.

Yea I love my '12 FDII Pat with it's CVT trans but most people b*tch and complain about it (usually non MK owners). I'd shoot for a severelly discounted '12 Latitude. My dealership has one that has like 45 miles or whatever on it and it's a 4x4 (not FDII)...they're only asking $16k some! Makes me wish I would've waited lol
