Obviously you want to buy the one with the fewest miles and in the best condition you can afford but to answer your question in the spirit that it is meant:

There is no bad year in regards to the new liquid cooled models and each year has it's benefits and possibly some drawbacks, I personally prefer the zippier revving 2013 and 2014 GS over the heavier flywheel models, I wouldn't mind having the steering damper on 2014 and up but haven't missed it on my 2013, I have ridden my friends new 2017.5 GSW and there isn't really enough difference to write home about although the pro-ABS may come in handy some time.
But there are no years from 2013 up that have exhibited any more reliability problems than any other year.
