Default New Driver Looking for a Manual Car >$10k

Hello everyone!

I'll be needing to buy a car soon and I haven't done much research. Personally, I'd like a car that's manual for the fun factor. Along with that, I would prefer a coupe for its sporty look.

As for the style, I love the look of a car like the 2015 Honda Civic Si Coupe for the sleek, sharp look that has lots of "polygons." Around Sacramento there are a lot of Civics, Camrys, Accords, etc. If possible, I'd like to have a car that's "unique" so I don't have the same car as everyone else. I want it to stand out above the rest, but it doesn't have to.

I really don't want to break the bank, so I want a car that'll be under $10,000 and on that note, I'd like the car to have decent miles per gallon.

Thanks a lot in advance,

Well, you could actually get a 2006-2008 Civic Si for that kind of money. I really liked those, I've driven a few and always enjoyed it. They are tough to find in totally stock form and especially with a responsible owner who's taken care of it properly and hasn't been thrashing the thing daily.

I got my WRX for well under that budget, that's a really fun car.

A good ol' Mustang GT could definitely be had in that range as well.

Mazda 3 is a cheaper, more reliable, and less powerful option but relatively easy to find manual and also very fun to drive. By far the most fuel efficient as well.
