    Hey guys thanks for the feedback! Not sure on the trunk space issue, but I know the Fit/Jazz is offered in manual here.I actually know 2 people with them and they both seem happy.

    That being said, I think I'm going to try to have my Camry last a few more years. Rather than a new car, I'm going to try to build an attached garage with a second bathroom (and sneakily modify my shed to be a second barely-one-car garage) for about the same price... I hope. If it looks like I can get everything zoned and get permits and such, I may start a "How to build a garage" thread.
    If the height is not a problem, it may be easier to use a shipping container as garage, as they cost about 4.000 $ or less (depends on how new are them).

      I would second the GTI reply. Also, manuals in GTIs are quite common in the US. Another option would be a used WRX/STI of the hatchback variety though this probably wouldn't get you the MPG you're looking for. If you're looking for something more practical, Outbacks are also great
