1993 Dodge Shadow 4dr Hatchback
Review
The title of my review says it all. I am a 22 yr old college student who inherited the car as a hs grad gift in 02. My dad bought the car brand new in 93. This car always started, never died, and felt like a tank (I hit my 53 yr old iron/stone based mailbox @ 30mph day I got my permit, blasted it to pieces, and only put a small dent on the front bumper .. keep in mind plows have hit the mailbox tons of times ...) I miss this car, orig. auto. transmission started to go at 274,283 miles, and continued to run until it reached 275,963, then it froze up. I replaced it with a used one, and drove the car to 300,000 original miles b4 the used tranny decided to die on me ....
Favorite Features
Put studded snow tires on this thing and it's better than a 4x4 Jeep .. it's a BEAST! Easy to squeeze into tight spaces but fun to drive, and it was truly amazing how reliable and cheap it was to fix this car. I miss her ... that Shadow was so good to me!
Suggested Improvements
Recall on paint due to poor quality primer (paint chipped off easily), a HAND E-Brake for the manual models (donuts helloo? - foot ebrakes aren't any fun and 16" wheels .. if I could buy this car on my own brand new ...oh man ... ::sighs:: Sometimes you just gotta let go ....
