Peter, they're both fine cars, but they're completely different animals! Different looks, feel, ride, etc. I'm fortunate to have gotten LOTS of "seat time" in both models. In my opinion, the 220 is a much nicer car. That said, the 140's kinda' grow on you. If you like the feel of the 140, it doesn't necessarily mean you'll like the 220. One thing's for sure though. The 220 will out-manuever the 140, hands down. The only sure way to decide what to do is drive one. As far as problems are concerned, the 220's have had far fewer problems in the first three years of production than the 140's did. Good luck
