I bought my '91 Beretta in 1995, and other than the usual maintenance stuff and a new alternator some years ago, it has required very little repair. It has been completely reliable during some brutal Chicago winters, always starting up immediately in the mornings. Unfortunately, the power steering fluid is leaking and the repair will cost more than this 17- year-old car is worth now. But up until a few weeks ago, this was an outstanding car. I really got my money's worth!
Looks great, fast acceleration, nice handling, very reliable.
The paint on the bumpers flakes off very easily. Also, the steering wheel is a teeny bit off-center from the driver's seat, but it only becomes noticeable on really long road trips.
