Review

It has been a great car for me. I have owned it for over a year now and not once has it broken down on me, nor have I had any machanical problems with it. It's a great for a first car. Great on gas I only spend about $20 a month on gas actually.

Solid car- 9 years, no major repairs

1994 Dodge Shadow ES 2dr Hatchback

Review

I bought this car new in April 1994 and have had no major repairs. My car has a manual transmission with overdrive and has required no major repairs at 95,000 mi. Odometer and speedometer don't function when outdoor temperatures exceed 90 F, but in Oregon that doesn't happen much. Automatic seatbelt has continued to function well. Driver side mirror has come out of its track periodically since it was new. (fixed 3 times under dealer warranty, fixed at home since then. Our fixes last longer.) Good handling in rain/snow and starts in sub-zero weather.

Decent Car, short on power

Review

Had problems with the 3 speed auto, had to be rebuilt after 60K miles. Also had a blown head gasket at 40K. Base 2.2 is already underpowered (93hp/2500lbs weight not good) and the car probably did no better than 14 second 0-60s new, although it was rather responsive above 60mph in 3rd when accelerating without kicking down to 2nd. Handling also excellent for a cheap car,very little body roll and excellent grip even from puny P185/70TR14s. Radio sucks, speakers are decent sized (5 1/4 inch in the front, 5X7s in the back) but bass response weak, even with aftermarket head unit. Front seats fairly comfortable, back cramped (expected), and styling very nice.

Owned 2 so far.

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.

Review

I bought my Shadow brand new in 94. It has been through many road trips 300+ miles, a couple of fender benders, harsh winters (-30)and hot summers (110) and all types of road conditions. It takes a licking and keeps ticking!!
