12 years old and still going strong. Some things are starting go, but at 12 that can be expected. The vinyl trim is pulling back in one spot on the rear interior, right-rear window motor getting real sluggish, some paint chalking on the front fascia, passenger seat getting really cranky about tipping forward, like I said nothing major. Only gets an annual oil change since I only drive 3000-4000 miles per year these days. Original roof, no major engine or transmission work. Seems like it's ready to go another 12 years.
I have two Lebarons now. First was a 94 convertible, now I have two 90's. I wish I had my 94 back!
3.0 engine is awesome!
Transmission problems are due to incorrect fluid, not poor workmanship. Owners manual incorrectly advise to use Dexron in emergencies. DO NOT USE DEXRON 2 PERIOD!!! You will replace the transaxle when you do! Use correct Mopar ATF Plus Type 7176.
had to replace the water pump and CV
joint-radio does some funky things
sometimes-like volume up&down,changes
stations,--allby itself AND THEN WON'T
EVEN GO OFF WHEN I TURN IT OFF!!! BUT
it is a blast-top looks and works like
new(80K) and pick-up is great w/the 3.0
L engine and avg about26 or 27mpg about
70 mph. I did put the K&N air filter on
it(about $40) which helped w/the gas.
It is the most fun I've had in years.
Needs a good cup holder and the
compartment on my right should have
been designed higher.
I would never buy a used lebaron as
these cars are the worst of crystler
products which are bad to start.
Expect that the transmission has been
replaced at least once. Many minor
things have been going wrong with this
car since the day I purchased it. The
top leaks and the cars are known to
have strange electrical mishaps.
However the 6 cylinder engine has help
up with no problems after 110000 miles.
Engine and snow handling
The only improve that could have been
made already was in 1996 when they
discontinued the vehicle. I repeat do
not buy a used lebaron they are meant
for the junk yard.
having a great time with my "radiant
fire" red ragtop. yeah it's my mid
life crisis. problems have been minor,
left rear window regulator and leaky
torque convertor seal, no biggie for
all the pleasure this car delivers.
power top, beats corvette on this one;
glass rear window, beats miata on this,
power window regulators, not up to par
with overall engineering of automobile
