i just got this 1990 dodge shadow bout a month ago and there is a loud squeaking noise that emits from the engine compartment. My uncle which is also a mechanic says that the problem may be the fly wheel is going out on it and also the belt is worn out. it could be to tight or to loose. that may be one of the many problems that is causing the car to emit such a high screeching sound. and i also put a whole tank of gas for like $30 bucks and it barely even lasts me 3 days and that's driving at normal speed on highways and also into towns. i may have to sell this car pretty soon. because the code reader on the car is sayin it has all kinds of problems with it..... it sucks

the car gets great fuel milage, 30+. but besides that nothing to brag about, chrysler rarely ever made a great vehicle

this car is a decent car. It can take a beating and still keep ticking. It is now that one thing seems to fail, everything at once is going wrong on it. When they are good, they are good, but let one thing mess up and your in a world of hurt.
