1993 Dodge Shadow Base 2.2 from North America
Great reliable first car
The head gasket just went at 121000.
The valve cover gasket went at about the same time. Had to replace it anyway when replacing the head gasket.
The right front wheel bearing is just starting to wine at 121000.
The paint is starting to chip on the hood and above the windshield.
Other than normal maintenance that's it.
This is a very reliable car.
This is a fast car for stock. First and second wind out a little to fast and fifth has no balls, but it tops out at about 115-120 mph.
I have had no real problems with this car. It gets about 23 miles to the gallon. The body is in great shape, other than the paint is starting to chip.
This is a great first car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
