2013 vs 2014 Sedan

I've been stalking the 2013 Sedan V6 the last few months, debating if I should purchase it now or wait for the 2014 model. Now that it's here I don't see a difference in them. Except for its a little more expensive, maybe I'm overlooking the changes. Please help me notice it!

So exactly what's the difference between the 2013 and 2014? What did they change or upgrade on the 2014? Heck I don't even see new colors

Already discussed HERE

2014 Sedan includes "smarter" auto-dim rear view mirror and more upscale dual exhaust finishers on the V6 models. LX gets new seat fabric. That's all. If you want a 9th Gen Accord, there's really nothing new for 2014.

If you can wait, newer is better, 2014 > 2013 in years.

However, you can make a much better deal on a 2013 and if you keep the car for five or more years the difference in resale will be more dependent on condition and mileage.

Not if you get the right price on the 2013. You should be able to get a 2013 for a discount that will more than negate the extra resale value on a 2014 or there would be no reason for anyone to ever buy a 2013 once the 2014s are available.
The 2014 will also have "high miles" for its model year at resale because it would have been driven for 4 months before the 2014 calendar year started vs "low miles" for it's year on a 2013 that was not driven for 8 months of the 2013 calendar year.
Get the 2014 if you really want the softer headrests on the EX-L or nicer seat fabric on an LX.
Whatever happened to Siri Eyes Free being standard on 2014s?

That's why when you're buying a used car you should determine if it's high or low mileage based on when (i.e. month and year) it was purchased/registered vs the model year alone.

That's not the way blue book values work. They go by model year and mileage, not date of original purchase.

I looked on Kelly Bluebook to find the average price to sell a 2008 Honda Accord EX 4 door, 4 cylinder, 60,000 miles (based on 12,000 miles a year), trade in value in excellent condition. $12,493

Same car 2007 with 72,000 miles $11,811 difference of $757

Same car 2009 with 48,000 miles $13,250 difference of $757

I think that you can get a bigger discount on a 2013 than $757.

You would actually need to compare different years with the same mileage (not mileage per model year). If you buy a new car in August and sell it after 4 years the total mileage when you sell it after 4 calendar years will be the same regardless of the model year of the car.
So compare a 2008 with 60,000 miles vs a 2009 with the same 60,000 miles.

I'm glad that there are no changes and the price went up.I'd be upset if the 2014 Sport had LED tail lights.

Agreed. Or heated mirrors and LED DRL strips.

So compare a 2008 with 60,000 miles vs a 2009 with the same 60,000 miles.
To get a more accurate valuation you have to compare cars of different years with mileage appropriate to that year. I figured 12,000 mikes per year so the 5 year old car would have 60,000 miles and the car one year newer and one year older would each have 12,000 miles difference. If you compare a 2008 and a 2007 with the same milage you can't differentiate the age of the car without the variable of milage.

That makes no sense when people are shopping for a new car at a specific time and cross-shopping 2014 vs 2013 cars that are sitting on their local dealership lot at the same time that would be purchased on a specific date (such as 48 calendar months after the initial purchase in August or September 2013). If they assume buying a 2014 will magically make it have less miles in 2017 or 2018 just because it is a model year newer, they will be overestimating how much of the extra cash they pay for a 2014 will be recouped with additional resale value. They may even believe they will be financially ahead because they imagine that will get so much more money back at trade-in.
It doesn't matter what would be "appropriate" mileage for the model year when estimating future resale value on a car you are buying today. It only matters what the "actual" mileage will be at resale time.
