    I'm looking at the Impeza wagon , but mostly want to know which is the most
    desirable ( reliable ) motor. I've owned all 1.8 & had much luck with them
    all. Other than the exhaust's, all were good. I would like to find a wagon
    ( impreza ) . We had lately bought a 2005 Imp. RS wagon , now it's my turn.
    But much older of a car, I go to places where I don't want to worry about
    dings & things ..
    But to make things short , I'm concerned which is the better motor, 2.0 or
    2.2 , this is very important to me . Because that means I'll be able to sell
    my 1.8 loyale to buy an upgrade. Yahooo ! Thanks for all your help .

    I've had 2.2L in the first generation Legacy and liked it very much
    (the car, the engine
    AND the transmission). The car felt more like the late Mazda Protege
    I've subsequently
    bought than the couch on wheels that the late impreza became. It was
    convenient
    to use (it had the lock on the rear gate for example, and the seats
    were wonderful
    and the wheelbase was relatively short. It was about 200-300 lighter
    than the current incarnation. The only thing I hated were the automatic
    seatbelts and the 90/10 front to rear torque split. I think no matter
    if you find 2.0 or 2.2 Impreza you may like it more than your 2005 RS.
    I hate to say it, but the first generation Legacy had much more sport
    in it than my 05 Outback "Sport". Early Imprezas must've been similar.
