A good little car
By familycarman on
1994 Dodge Shadow 4dr Hatchback
I am the 2nd owner on the car, it had been a rental car for a year prior. We have put over 80,000 miles ourselves on the car. Used as primary family car from 20,000 miles to 98,000 miles, now my commutter car. No major complaints-- although regular maintenance is getting quite expensive-- I spend about $1000 about every 18 months in the last few years at the dealership making sure it is in top-quality condition.
It gets me to and from where I need to go. It has 4-doors and a fold-down rear seat for when I need to turn it into my "truck"
The oxygen sensor is notorius for going out every 20 to 40 thousand miles. Can be diagnosed by reading a "Haynes" manual and counting the blinks of the check engine light. I have replaced the spark-plug wires a few times now
