1990 Chrysler LeBaron 3.0 liter V6 from North America


Smart buy and reliable


I've only replaced the starter, rebuilt the transmission, new radiator and got a new top. That's it!! AFTER 16 YEARS!!! Plus things like tires and brakes of course.

The paint is still shiny, but its starting to flake is some spots (outside parking).

One of the quarter windows doesn't move so that needs to be fixed.

Since 1991 the car has only let me down twice; stranded in a parking lot when the starter went out (1996) and stalled when going through deep water -stupid move.

General Comments:

Yikes! So many negative reviews.

I bought my 1990 LeBaron convertible in 1991 and its still going strong. The 3.0 liter V6 is silky smooth and acceleration is great. The ride is also smooth.

The interior is somewhat plasticy, but the design is A1 (for that period). The buttons for lights and wipers on the gauge hood are very stylish.

If you take car of a car it will last a long time. (You must wash and wax regularly) and maintain the engine (regular oil change).

Now the car had been sitting for 5 months (I got a new car) so I put in a new battery and it started right up, no problem at all.

My years with my Chrysler has been excellent. I can tell you now I've put more money into my new car (1999 foreign model) in three years than all of my Chrysler years.

Oh yes, its time for new shocks.

If you have the guts, and the know-how to maintain, a vintage Chrysler with a 3.0 will take you many miles. They can be had cheaply, look for those owned by adults rather than teens, and are easy to fix if you have patience.

Remember though, these cars are well into their second decade on the highway, a feat not welcomed by any manufacturer. So your best bet after purchasing one is to make friends with your closest pick & pull wrecking yard. Stock up on things and store them away. You'll find brakes and pipes easy enough, but you'll never find an on the dash turn signal switch at any parts store, dealer or otherwise.

A comfortable, economical Ride


The car had been it storage for 2 years when I bought it. So I had to replace the front brake flex hoses, the gas tank and straps as well as the muffler. All and all not too bad for sitting for 2 years.

Even the cost for the parts wasn't that much all that work done for under $1000.

General Comments:

This car out performs my old Cavalier Z24. The only problem I have with it is that the handling is on the soft side.

I like the digital dash display and the extra comfort in the seats. I've been told that there is more cushioning in my car than in some people's living rooms. Another thing is that I'm getting an average of 400-500km per tank of gas with this car.

That has to be the most ridiculously named car I have ever heard of. Thank God they don't have them over here in England.

I owned one of these in England, and it's a completely brilliant car, well built and reliable. In four years use, I just had to change the engine water pump! It's funny that people who slag Chrysler off, usually have never owned them!! I've had a Neon, LeBaron, Voyager, Vision, and now the best ever, the 300C.

I'll drive this car until it dies


The rocker panels are completely rusted out, and rust repair panels are not available in Canada, or so I've been told.

It will hesitate under acceleration at times, transmission was rebuilt.

On warm days it will occasionally stall, perhaps an 02 sensor is required.

Interior is in great shape, all power options work.

General Comments:

This car drives very nice on the open road and is very comfortable.

Gas mileage isn't what I expected, averaging around 18mpg combined.

Headroom could be better, have to adjust the seats to see what's above.

For $1200, I'm not complaining.
