Doesn't make any sense to me. If I buy a 2012 for invoice (call it $40k) and another guy buy a '13 on the same day for $1,000 over ($41k), at the end of 3 years, the FMV of both cars will be more than $1k apart even if mileage is the same just for the fact that they are 1 model year different.
Don't see why anyone would pop for a '12 that was so similar in price to an equivalent '13...
