I loved this car it was fun to drive all my friends loved it. For a small car it was powerful with a v6 3L engine. The only things that weren't so great about the gas was the gas mileage but wat do you expect from a 16 to 17 year old car And there's little room. This car was amazing but about 2 weeks ago coming home my back right tire snapped off where the axle met the rim so i don't know if I'm going to have it fixed because it might not be worth the money but it was an amazing car and was reliable until this one incident and i got the car from my grand father when it had only 46,000 miles on it in 08 and when i was done with it it had 68,000 so i used it well and it was a great FAST car.
Speed, fun, handling was great, sporty look, and did i mention That its relay Fast.
This was the 1st vehicle I ever purchased without a daddy or husband...and at almost 29K miles, a daughter has driven it, a son has driven it, and now a grandson has driven it. It still runs GREAT. The 5-speed manual transmission makes it FUN to drive and I've been loving my Shadow for over 17 years. The BEST purchase I've ever made!
5-speed manual transmission is FUN to drive. Trunk is large enough to move furniture...which I have done on several occasions.
I changed out the "grannie wheels" for some mag wheels about two years after I purchased it because the "grannie wheel covers" kept falling off.
Excellent car, nearly 200,000 kms on it and still going... Very comfortable and fun to drive, most reliable car, can sit for 2 weeks at below zero temp and still have no trouble starting. Not many repairs needed over the years. Love this car and will miss it when it's gone some day. Doesn't seem like that will happen any time soon tho!
"Hidden hatchback", quite odd but it works. Can fit some very large items into the cargo space, even some furniture! Very comfortable to drive, everything easily within reach.
The paint pops off like crazy. Even so, hardly any rust to speak of!
