I'm considering buying a 1999 2.2L Legacy Wagon. How reliable is the 2.2L from '99. Is that a "Phase 2" engine.
I had a 1997 2.5L Legacy that had the head gasket problem and then completely gave out eight months after fixing the head gasket. In addition to the head gasket problem I had various oil leaks and a transmission seal leak.
I really liked how the car drove and handled which is why I'm now considering the '99 wagon. Am I tempting fate or is the 2.2L much better as seems to be indicated in a lot of posts here?
Thanks for any advice.
