1994 Dodge Shadow Hatchback 2.2 Liter from North America
A great car at a great price
Head gasket blew at 72000 miles.
Catalytic converter blew at 73,000.
Tie rod busted at 75,000.
2 bad front end collisions (my fathers fault).
Oxygen sensors blew at 77,000.
Car is really fast for what it is, got it up to 120 mph, and still foot room.
The car takes corners very well.
Can dust anyone off the line, great acceleration.
Just a great car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I have no idea what you are talking about. I have a 2.2 liter Dodge Shadow and it is terrible in acceleration. Even the factory 0-60 time is over 10 seconds! A Chevrolet Astro van does 0-60 in 8! And there is no way you have gotten it up to 120 unless going downhill with the foot ALL THE WAY on the floor. Believe me, I have tried. It maxxed out at 102 MPH on the flat.
I agree that it does not have a good acceleration, but it reaches high speeds very easy.
I think he might have been talking about the 3.0 V6 b/c those engines are very fast from the start.
