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.
Makes a U-turn on a dime. Good runner.
Dash layout (stereo specifically) not
the easiest to reach.
I own this car via marriage...my wife's
car, I maintain it and deal with it's
probelms, which have been few. The
car does burn oil, creaks like an old
man, is slow as molassas running uphill
in January, has horrid build quality
but at 71000 miles, the car starts
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!
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
