Default Used 2006 Honda Civic?

I am looking at purchasing a smaller, more reliable car then what I currently have. I recently was offered 2 different honda civics. One was the 2006 Honda civic sedan and it was an LX model and automatic transmission. The other was the manual 5 speed coupe EX model. They both have a little over 100,000 miles but I have been religious with the matinence schedule of my previous car. They both have clean records. The coupe is priced at 7900 while the sedan is priced at 8500. My real problem is I have no little experience driving a manual and am afraid its going to wear the car faster. The sedan is priced higher though and I would have to take out a small loan to purchase. But the owner said he is willing to hang on for it for a year and put at most another 5000 miles and sell it to me for the same price as the coupe. I also need to consider realistically what is the better choice as I do realize that the manual in the coupé could become a Hassel for me. On that note, I will inform you I don't drive like a racer and push the vehicle to its limits. However the coupe does have more standard features but with less space and I do drive with more than one passenger at least 3 times a week. I am 18 and have a clean driving record as well. So should I wait a year to buy the sedan or JH UST get the coupe right now. My current vehicle is an 2001 Chevy lumina with 140,000 miles. I am not in a rush to get a new vehicle. Just want something with better reliability and millage, if someone can estimate the estimated cost of the civic sedan next year and give me a suggestion on which one to buy, that would be great. I drove them both and they both seemed the same to me besides the coupe being more work as it is a manual.

i think you pretty much answered your own questions about the manual vs automatic and the coupe vs sedan. the prices sound about right, either way.

My 1st automobile during college was 2 door Volkswagen Bug and I learned how to drive stick shift. All other automobiles except one (Mazda Miata convertible I bought for oldest son after he graduated from college with BS Accounting and then passed 4 part CPA exam) have been automatic. We have owned primarily Toyotas last 20 years: 1980 Corolla Station Wagon
