1994 Dodge Shadow 4dr Hatchback


Review

I have owned 2 of these (actually 1 Shadow and 1 Duster). My wife's Shadow has been one of the best car's I've owned. It has been a good, reliable car. It has 150,000 miles, the last 20k have been all short trips. It is still running great. Only major repair was the head gasket (which I'm told is normal at 140k), other stuff has been general maintenance (brakes, battery, etc). My '94 Duster had some problems, but I bought that w/ 100k on it. Who knows who had it before??? I think it only goes to show that if you take care of car, it'll last.


Favorite Features

Makes a U-turn on a dime. Good runner. Reliable.


Suggested Improvements

Dash layout (stereo specifically) not the easiest to reach.

3 Accidents couldnt kill it!!! It's still going strong!!! I've got just over 180K on it and really have only had to replace the clutch plate and of course the O2 sensor, but what the hey when it's such a great car! I'm going to drive it as long as I possibly can! Very low maintanance!

Review

I've had this car for 3 yrs now. this car has been very reliable to me. i plan on keeping it as a "beater" car when i buy a new car. i have put on about 60k miles since i got it...it now has 205k miles. I can still hit 100mph !!! Since i've had the car, i've replaced the headgasket, water pump, and tires (about $1000) Not to bad for 3 years. I would recommend this car to anyone with low budget car maintainence.


Favorite Features

it's dependability


Suggested Improvements

is fine the way it is
