Although the styling is real nice,
there have been too many
reliability problems with the on board
computer system for a recommendation.
I experienced problems with stalling
and shutting off after extended
highway driving. This does not
represent too much of a problem if you
are in town with plenty of
opportunities to get a quick tow.
However, if you are not armed with a
cellphone and are in the middle of
nowhere, as was my experience, this
little auto will leave you high and
dry if it decides to act up. The
exterior bits are also inferior. The
side molding comes off after a few
years and the rubber handle to the
turn signal tends to slide off.

I now curently have 247500 miles on my
beretta. i have had to replace the fuel
pump at 240000 and it has had an oil
leak since 1996, but it hasn't gotten
any worse. so i just keep adding fluids
and it keeps going. the body is tough
too. i go hit from behind at 30 miles
per hour and all i got was a crack in
my bumper and the other car was a honda
accord and it was crumpled in the front.
GTZ model debuts, with high-output version of Quad 4 engine. GTZ has 180-horsepower, and is available only with five-speed transmission. Short-lived GTU is dropped. An aggressively hyped convertible model never made it to production. Base 2.0-liter engine is swapped for peppier 2.2-liter unit. Optional V6 goes from 2.8 liters to 3.1, and now makes 140 horsepower. Air conditioning is made standard on all but the base model. All Berettas get new cloth seat covers and cushions.
