1991 Dodge Shadow es convertable 2.5 turbo from North America


Love it, will never get rid of it


Have not done a thing to this car in the 15 years I have owned it. Changed oil and filter like you should and new tires twice. never has needed brakes or rotors, clips still on rotors. it does leak some [can you say convertable]they all do.

General Comments:

This has been a great car.

Have not spent a dime on it.

Anyone on here with complaints sound like the cars were junk when they bought them.

Good power.

Good looks, people still ask me if it is a new car.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Wow!! if you only have 36,000 miles on the car now, you'll probably have it until the 22nd century!! I bought a 1990 Dodge Omni in 1996 that had 186,000 miles on it at the time. I bought it from a good friend who bought it new and drove it literally all over the US. I know for a fact that when I bought the car it had had only had ONE brake job and ONE timing belt replaced, and that was it. Nothing else had ever gone wrong with the car. I drove the car until it had 240,000 miles on it, and it still ran perfectly and didn't use a drop of oil. I had to put another timing belt on it, do another brake job, and replace one hose. That's it. NOTHING else. I sold the car for what I paid for it ($800) and bought a Mazda RX-7, which was a total piece of garbage and was ready for the scrap heap in less than a year. Chrysler definitely builds some of the best cars on the planet. I'll take one over the foreign competition any day.

1991 Dodge Shadow America 2.5L 4 cylinder from North America


A shadow is forever


Drivers side window will not roll up without a lot of persuasion.

Hubcaps got tired and scattered to the winds...

Speedometer failed at 230,000 odd miles.

Replaced the cluster with a matching unit from junkyard. Now the car magically has only has 83,000 miles.

General Comments:

This car was cheap as it was free. Became very rusty in Ohio and delivered pizzas for years in Georgia.

Handling is slack, but good. Minimal oil leak. Interior is comfortable.

Outside looks like an abandoned vehicle. It has been in many accidents. It defies many things, as it can go very fast. About 26 mpg. Drove it from GA to OH and back without incident six months ago.

The 2.5 four and 3 speed auto is a good combination. Avoid 4 speed auto, I've been told. Faithful in my times of having no freakin money.

General Comments:

This is the third Shadow (Sundance) I've had.

First one I had was a 91 Plymouth Sundance, then I got a 94 Shadow ES, then I have my current one, which is a 91 Shadow 5 door. It seems to have a bad power problem, and it stalls when it's cold out. If anyone knows why this would be, please send an e-mail to f4flyby2@adelphia.net

I'm currently doing work to my 94 Shadow. It was sitting for a couple weeks because of a failed emissions test, and I didn't want to put on a new muffler at the time, so I went out and purchased a 4" can, which I'm gonna throw on so I can give those imports a run for their money.

I just put a system in my 91 Shadow. I have a 12" MTX sub with a Verge amp 250w, with a Pioneer head unit with Pioneer 5 1/2 speakers all around. And all my cars are rockin' steelies.
