I'm looking at purchasing a friends Legacy to use this summer while I do some minor body work and engine work on my Loyale. Since I'm pulling the motor and only get 2 days off a month, I need a daily driver while the Loyale sits in my garage.

This will be my first EJ22 car and I have a few questions regarding it. It is a 2wd auto sedan.
I know the motor is very reliable but what about the tranny? Any major issues?
What was the first year for the legacy? 1990?
Pros vs. Cons in general?
Anything to look for with ej22? I know there has always been a lot of support for these motors, but is there a problem that stands out?
Overall I liked the car when I drove it, a big change from my ea82 wagon, and am looking to buy it in the coming weeks.

I got my 2WD 1990 Legacy about 4 years ago, and its now got 277,000miles on the clock. I hammer on it everyday and I have yet to encounter any problems with it. (other than routine stuff, Oil every 3000, axle replacement).

Yes 1990 was the first year they made them. Tranny issues, nothing other than mine is starting to get worn, but it shifts without problem. Just as fast in the 1/4 mile as my brothers 95 impreza 2.2l auto. (17.3sec).

bottom line, highly recommended by me.
