smart comparison

I have a 2008 passion with 124000 that stopped. I would like to update a few years. '12 -'16. Any thing to watch out for in specific model years? Any suggestions?

2016 was the redesign. Frankly, I'd look at a 2016 due to the overall quality being better.

It just stopped, mechanic said it was the electronic clutch actuator. I removed and inspected for damage lube an replaced. Key function at startup but doesn't turn over. Replaced starter 400$. Want 1000$ for fix. Gar is in good shape. 124000 mi is a lifespan,

Any change in getting it to start? what is the 1000$ fix being suggested to do?

Won't even turn over. Removed, inspected and lube, seems fine. Why won't it turn over?

The 1000$ was to replace the actuator.
