2012 2LT/RS vs 2013 1LT/RS
 
Weighing my options, i could probably get both of these at about the same price. I could actually probably gt the 2012 for a little cheaper, since it is used. But there are pros and cons to both.

With the 2012, I could have the HUD, the leather, the ABL, backup camera etc....

With the 2013, I could get the MyLink touchscreen, the frameless mirror, and the pride of owning a NEW CAR. But I would have cloth seats and miss out on all the little goodies, such as the ABL and HUD...

Faced with the decision, which would you choose, if you were in my predicament?

No brainer, go with the 2012 that's loaded. HUD is great, you still get the backup camera in the mirror, heated seats, leather, ambient lighting, etc. :thumbsup:

I picked 12 but....I'd go with a 2010-11 ss :D

2010 or 2011 SS FTW

Haha.. Figures the "SS" boys would jump in with "Buy a V8"..... That was NOT expected at all..lol :facepalm:


Back on subject, if I were you, I would weigh the options and what you really want. I think both cars have appeal and tbh, if I had the choice, I would go with the 2012 because the HUD is really cool and so are the other options you won't get with the 1LT.

Good luck!!!!!

Save and wait a little bit more and get the 2013 :D

Deffinetly 2012... But I agree with adamZ, get an older SS

2012. The MyLink still has too many bugs that GM hasn't or can't seem to work out. I think the backup screen in the rear view mirror is cooler than the cam in the MyLink screen. Plus you have the guidelines in the backup screen that we '13 owners don't have.

2012 I want the extra goodies

The electronic steering started In 2012 and I really like that. Also, because I am only 17, insurance on an SS would be KILLER. So that's a deal breaker for me, and not to mention I only get 14 mpg with my truck that I have now, I am looking for something that has decent gas mileage. So when I get my new car, it definitely had to be either NEW or BARELY USED... I don't want to go back as far as a 2010-2011. Seems kind of dumb in my opinion when I could get something that I want in a newer year model. My mom also brought hat upto me when I asked if I could get a 2008 Range Rover. She said its dumb to go back to 2008 when you could get a 2013 camaro with all that you want/need. So SS is out if the question. :)

If you have to have a V6, get the 2012. The leather seats and the HUD are not to be missed out on. The Chevy myLink is overrated, nothing but a sub-par touch screen with an even worse OS. The only thing about it that I like is that I can play the audio from my phone via bluetooth, but thats nothing an auxiliary jack can't fix.

However, I do have to say the others are right. As someone who purchased the V6 because my commute is killer, if you can deal with the worse gas mileage (I wish I had said F it and dealt with it), get an older SS, otherwise you may regret it. I often times long for the purr of an SS, which IMO would have trumped the heads up display and even leather seats, hands down. Don't get me wrong, the V6 has plenty of power, but there is nothing like the roar of that V8. Plus it makes me just a bit sad when I see that 5.0 Mustang roar past me, and all I can do is watch.

Definitely don't care for an SS. I don't want an older year model, thats the thing. I am perfectly content with a V6, because I know I will get great gas mileage. I do NOT enjoy getting only 14 mpg in my truck that I own now... Makes me not want to go anywhere lol. The only issue I think I may have with getting a 2012 2LT is the leather will be used... and since I am OCD, if it has any tiny wrinkle or stretch in the leather, I won't want it. It also cant have more than 10k miles on it.

And you know that you can play music with bluetooth off of your phone with bluetooth in 2012 right? You just have to have the connectivity package, I believe. I am starting to think that the older style radio will be better because its easier to use and not so distracting.
