Hi, I am currently saving up for a used Subaru, and at this point have only narrowed it down to a Legacy GT (sedan), WRX, or STI. A manual transmission is a must for me. I am looking to spend between 10,000 and 20,000 for the right car. I do occasionally drive on bumpy dirt/gravel mountain roads as I do a lot of hiking, so I am not looking for anything that is too low to the ground. Any recommendations and insight as to which precise model you think I should purchase based on my budget of no more than 20k, preferably closer to 15k would be greatly appreciated. PS the only wagon that I am interested in would be the 2008 and newer WRX, and most of those are just out of my price range.
