1989 Chrysler LeBaron Convertible 2.5 turbo from North America
The Chrysler Le Baron is a head turner
Freeze out plugs went at least 3 times in the 90's.
It has had, and still has, oil leaks.
Power Steering pump has been replaced.
Air conditioning was fixed in 1992, but no longer works as of 2008.
The radiator was replaced in 1995 and 2008.
The radio was rebuilt in the 90's.
Three complete muffler systems over the years.
The top was replaced in 1994, and will need to replaced next year.
The Power window switch was replaced in 2008
I have owned this car since 1992. In 1997 at 115k, after spending a lot on repairs, things still kept breaking. Since it wasn't worth anything I parked it in the barn and forgot about it.
In 2008 I decided to see if it would start. I threw a new battery in it and it started right up, even though it sat for 11 years. I sank $1000 into it fixing mostly maintenance items like brakes and belts. Now I have a 20 year old car that looks and drives great and gets 23 MPG.
This is the best riding car I have ever owned, and that's saying a lot for a 20 year old car. It handles great and has turbo power. And the best part is the compliments I get on what a nice looking car it is.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
