1986 Chrysler LeBaron Mark Cross Convertible 2.5L from North America
Considering how worn it was, once maintained properly, a nice Sunday driver
The car was pretty well worn when I got it, but being a convertible, I wanted to fix it up. The car was sitting for a few years, so normal replacement items, such as brakes, shocks, springs, bushings etc. Also replaced the timing belt and idler as I didn't know if it was ever done.
It runs well, doesn't burn oil or leak, trans. shifts fine. Did have a drivability issue when I first got it, so complete tuneup, and re-manufactured computer under hood (this also controls the regulation of the charging system) as the alternator wasn't charging properly.
Once the bugs were worked out, this has been a nice car for the last few years, and repairs and maintenance have been very minimal.
As I mentioned, once the bugs were worked out from sitting, this has been a nice car. MPG is in the 25 mile range so I am satisfied, and with the top down, it's fun!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
