Further more, on my LeBaron I have replaced the engine once, along with the transmission, and the motor to the windshield wipers. I don't think that this a reliable car if you ask me. All I do for driving is highway miles. The motor to my lights that flips them open has also gone out. I won't buy another Chrysler made vehicle.

My 1990 Lebaron Convertable has gone through 4 left rear window motors. Turn signals have to be cancelled manually. Headlight covers don't open at times. Engine loses idle at times. My local Chrysler dealers can't seem to fix any of this stuff permantly.

I wouldn't say my 1990 Lebaron is a Reliable car either, but I can't deny I love it. It's a very comfortable and very nice looking car. It just requires a lot of maintenance. I slacked off for a while, but and now I'm paying for it, but the repairs on this car are still cheaper than buy a brand new car.

We really like this 1990 V-6 Le Baron. Yes, it has had both the rear window motors replaced (be sure to lube the channel that guides them up and down for longer life), and the headlight light door motor also.
My current challenge is with the digital dash that was only in 90 and 91. It seems to drain the battery, and now has a toggle switch installed to cut off all power when parked. Now the gas gage is not working and I don't know if its the digital dash or the tank sensor/sender. I would like to change to an analog dash, but need to find out what else I would need to do to make it happen, any suggestions? This is a good old fashioned American made convertible (with a Japanese engine) that I want to reserve for the summer season only.

I own a 1990 lebaron sedan, V6, 125 thousand miles. Crap. Everything that could go wrong with these cars will. The only good thing is that you can find one CHEAP and the reason they are so cheap is that the person selling it hates the car, and it has been eating away at their pockets since they bought it.

I have a 91 Lebaron 2 door covertible with almost 200k miles on it. The engine still runs great! I have never had a problem with it, except that it leaks a little oil and smokes a little. The convertible top is really worn, with a few small cracks and tears, the rear window motors don't work, and the headlight switches have gone out (I'm looking for a new light switch assembly now). Oh and the odometer has quit so I may be over 200k now. Still, the car is great as a daily driver, I'll keep driving it until it gives out on me.
