This was the 1st vehicle I ever purchased without a daddy or husband...and at almost 29K miles, a daughter has driven it, a son has driven it, and now a grandson has driven it. It still runs GREAT. The 5-speed manual transmission makes it FUN to drive and I've been loving my Shadow for over 17 years. The BEST purchase I've ever made!
5-speed manual transmission is FUN to drive. Trunk is large enough to move furniture...which I have done on several occasions.
I changed out the "grannie wheels" for some mag wheels about two years after I purchased it because the "grannie wheel covers" kept falling off.
