Thanks. So, if i can get a great deal on an 11', I should go for it.

Yes. IMO, there is never a point in paying a premium for an identical vehicle just because it is one model year newer.

I think they are also adding blind spot monitoring for 2012.. nice feature.

Set your sideview mirrors so there's no overlap between them and the rear-view. No more blindspot. If set correctly, any passing cars should be up to your driver window by the time they've exited view of the sideview. If you ask certian people, they've been known to setoff radar detectors as well. Of all the gimmick and convience technology that's come out within the last 10 years, I find it absolutely the worst in perpetuating safe driving habits, and for reasons mentioned above, I'm glad I have done without it.

I set my mirrors the same way....The company I work for promoted it about 10 years ago for a short while...then quickly withdrew their recommendation....I adpoted the setup and love it and cant get away from it....Not sure why they dont like it....but i cant go back.....has saved me lots of times!!
