1993 Dodge Shadow ES 4dr Hatchback


Bought this shadow brand new. It has always been a suprisingly fast car. It was driven pretty hard, lost the tranny at 105k, alternator and distributor cap @ 80k. But it was in a serious wreck at 68000, and it never seemed to run like it did after being rebuilt. Now has 125k and oil is creeping in to the plugs, making for it to mix and misfire. I still drive it every day, and if you put your foot down it still moves pretty good. But the gas mileage has lowered to about 15-17mpg. Decent car for the money. Love American vehicles and believe in them despite this average score from the Shadow.

Best Features

Powerful 3.0 V6, very nimble, great vehicle for rain or snow (heavy front end), satisfactory interior space.

Worst Features

Questionable reliability of aluminum head, boring interior design, poor adhesive on ceiling cloth.
