Buying my first car!

I'll be buying my first car this summer! I can't decide on which car to choose. I've been researching for months and I seem to change my mind multiple times a day. I've been looking at cars with a 20k sticker price or lower. What is the best performing car in this price range? I've been looking at mainly the 2014 models for the Mazda 3, Ford Focus sedan, Lancer and Subaru Impreza, all in the lowest trim models. It seems like neither the Lancer or Mazda come with a/c at that trim, which is unfortunate. I would like to test drive all of these vehicles, but that won't happen likely, until the summer actually arrives. I also want to get a manual. I heard that the Impreza has a "bad" manual gearbox. What would you guys recommend? I'll be going to university next fall. I'm sure I'll have to get used to driving an economy car, as I've been driving my parents' cars for the last two and a half years. My mom drives a 2007 Range Rover Sport Supercharged and my Stepdad drives a 2007 Chrysler 300 Limited, both automatic. I don't have a lot of experience when it comes to driving a wide variety of cars, but I love driving those two.

I used to quit school to recover from injuries after falling off my motorcycle. So it is not strange that I am old and still go to school

$20,000 can buy you like... 10-20 stock KA-powered 240sx's depending on how you shop. So buy 10-20 240sx's. If one breaks, you have others! It's a bulletproof way to commute, obviously a gang of cars will be more reliable than just one.

Mazda3s look good. My mate had a low trim level manual from like 2015 or so. What about something like a Civic Si? It's a manual and can still have four doors and is still fun to drive.

I'd peep Craigslist for a while and see if there is an older can that catches your eye. I think it's more cost effective to get a used car that you really like.

Some just have no interest in being helpful.. Sad cuz it takes the same amount of effort to offer thoughtful suggestions as it does to complain about the post. Eh
