This is a beautiful, low mileage, very good original condition, turbo LeBaron Town & Country woody station wagon, with the Mark Cross leather interior!  This car looks, runs, and drives great while coddling the driver and passengers in plush comfort.  And it is quick yet economical and fun to drive with the 2.2 liter Chrysler turbo engine.

This LeBaron has the wood trim package, the Mark Cross leather interior package, the turbo engine, automatic transmission, AM/FM radio, cargo cover, rear window wiper, tilt wheel, and power windows, power drivers' seat, power locks, power steering, and power brakes.  All of these features work great.  The air conditioning comes on but I have not used it and it is likely low on coolant, as the switch cycles.  The turbo gives quick acceleration, and the car runs, drives, shifts, and stops great, with no known problems or repair needs.  There may be a slow battery draw, I disconnect the battery when the car is sitting for a period.  The tires are about one year old and have less than 1000 miles on them!

The body is rust free, and appears to have no body repairs.  The paint appears to be all original and is in good shape, but could use a good polishing to bring back a better shine.  The wood is excellent, with very few chips or scratches, the largest being on the drivers' door (see photo) and some discoloration on the framing, primarily on the rear hatch.  Even the rocker panels are clean!  There is a minor small bump on the hood, with no broken paint, and which is barely noticeable unless you look at it in just the right light and at the right angle.  The wire wheel covers are in very good condition, with minor scuffing.

The beautiful and comfortable Mark Cross leather interior is really incredible!  The leather is in great condition, including the embossed Mark Cross emblems on the front and rear seat backs.  The dash pad has no cracks, and the headliner is not sagging, and the carpet looks great and is not worn.  The ash tray has a broken corner (see photo) but I will include a replacement ash tray.  Some of the satin silver trim surfaces show aging, but are a very minor and repairable appearance item that could be easily addressed.  The cargo area carpet, trim, and stainless ribs are all in very good shape, and the spare and jack are like new!

Overall this beautiful LeBaron Town & Country looks great in its original Cream Crystal Coat paint and light/medium tan Mark Cross leather interior, probably the best color combination for this car!  The Chrysler turbo motor is dependable, economical, easy to service, and is quick and fun to drive.  It is an affordable, practical, stylish, luxurious, and very 80s classic!

I have clear title in my name.  The car is garaged, and can stay garaged temporarily while you arrange to pick up or transport the car.  I will release the car after payment in full funds have cleared.

I have described this LeBaron as best I can; it is sold as is, where is.  Please ask any questions before you bid.

Long winter means most automakers won't curb summer shutdown

Sun, 18 May 2014 14:04:00 EST

A lot more happened during this latest brutal winter than days of snow and Netflix binges. Automotive sales took a battering. After all, going out car shopping when it's eleventy-billion degrees below zero isn't a good time.
Because of this Old Man Winter-induced sales slump, inventories are abnormally high as we head into the summer car buying season. That's led some analysts to predict that automakers will be more inclined to idle factories this summer, in a bid to trim some of the built-up inventory. Traditionally, American manufacturers offer up a two-week break in the middle of summer, although the burgeoning sales of the past few years have seen this practice become less popular.
"We're likely not going to see an acceleration this year," Jeff Schuster, a senior vice president at LMC Automotive, told The Detroit News. "We'll see production increases in 'pockets' but I don't know if it will be as widespread as in recent years."

Detroit 3 small cars lay an egg in latest Consumer Reports reliability study

Tue, 28 Oct 2014 14:31:00 EST

Consumer Reports has released its Annual Auto Reliability Survey and the results are, in a word, interesting. While we already covered the score-damaging effects of infotainment systems, there's another big angle to the data that's getting some attention - the utterly dismal scores of the Detroit Three's small car offerings.
The turbocharged Dodge Dart and Chevrolet Cruze, as well as the Ford Fiesta were their respective brands' lowest-scoring models, a stat that's made worse by the fact that the American automakers finished 25th, 21st and 23rd, respectively.
That's not acceptable for The Detroit Free Press' auto critic, Mark Phelan, who has penned a scathing critique of the D3's small car reliability scores, arguing that GM, Ford and Chrysler are "out of excuses."

NHTSA investigating power modules on Chrysler Group SUVs and minivans

Mon, 29 Sep 2014 11:02:00 EST

The Center for Auto Safety is officially petitioning the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to begin scrutinizing alleged problems with the totally integrated power module (TIPM) on about 24 Chrysler Group SUVs and minivans. The advocacy group claims that the part's failure can cause affected vehicles to stall or not start at all. NHTSA is still looking into the accusations and deciding whether a full investigation is actually warranted.
The CAS petition claims at least 70 TIPM failures, but according to NHTSA, six of the complaints are for models that don't have the modules. In 34 of the reported cases, the vehicles refused to start, and in 17 of them the engine stalled. There were also two allegations of smoke and one of a fire. However, none of these affected airbag deployment or resulted in a crash.
This petition isn't the first TIPM-related problem for Chrysler Group. A recent report in the New York Times alleged that it found 240 complaints potentially related to the issue on NHTSA's website alone. In September, the automaker also recalled 230,760 examples worldwide (188,723 in the US) of the 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango replace the fuel pump relay circuit inside of the TIPM-7 with one external to the unit. The original part could allegedly cause the models to stall without warning. Even earlier, the company also recalled about 80,000 examples of the Jeep Wrangler and Dodge Nitro in 2007 to have the module reprogrammed.
