The S is extremely spartan and no rear discs which is a must in my book. The '12 SE 5 speed with the sport package (sport seats,discs,alloys,leather wrapped wheel/shifter for $810) was the one to get if you wanted to avoid the majority of the issues but still had plenty of goodies to keep up with the Jonses.
I looked at and drove a couple SELS and Ti models and the only big diffs on the higher models were just stuff like softer dash meterials,a little silver trim on the inside and out and a selection of colored LED choices.
