1992 Chevrolet Beretta 2dr Coupe


Review

Where do I start...horrible ergonomics (GM couldn't even be bothered to make the driver's seat line up with the steering wheel), sub-Happy Meal-quality interior trim, interior and exterior parts fell off at random, crappy 3 speed auto sucked out every last iota of performance the 3100 V6 had in it (which wasn't much to begin with), leaked water in the rain, transmission was toast at 70K miles. Unless someone is paying you to take one of these cars, you don't want one.


Best Features

Well, it ran, I guess.


Worst Features

Riding the bus instead of buying this car would have been an improvement.

1992 Chevrolet Beretta GTZ 2dr Coupe


Review

This car is amazing. I bought it from a relative a few months ago. If you like performance but don't like the high price that comes with it, I suggest the GTZ with the 2.3 liter "High Output" engine. Although 180 hp doesn't sound like much, it sure feels like a whole lot more. It has 144,500 miles and neither my relative or I have had any mechanical problems, although I can say the European suspension (Getrag) squeaks every now and again. Otherwise, it sticks to the road with its rather big tires (on 16-inch rims). As far as the interior, it is very comfortable for a compact performance car. Sure there are better cars, but not everyone has the money.


Best Features

Wheels are the same color as the body. Snappy 2.3 liter engine. Sporty suspension yet the ride is never uncomfortable


Worst Features

When the car hits bumps, you here many things rattle. It's nothing to get worried about. It just can be annoying on rough roads. Engine does need more torque (only 160ft/lb).

1992 Chevrolet Beretta GT 2dr Coupe


Review

Maybe Chevrolet made one good Beretta GT in one thousand, in stead of the other way around, but I had a bad one to be sure. The car was PLAGUED with electrical problems. Sometimes the fan would work...sometimes not. This led to overheating, which caused other mechanical failures. The life expectancy of the EFI sensors is must less than befits a car with as few miles as I had. The interior was made by kindergardeners, and nobs were always coming off in my hands. It ate batteries (replaced them every 6 months or so) and you couldn't even rely on the radio to always function.


Best Features

My favorite Beretta memory was selling it to someone else.


Worst Features

There is a reason GM no longer makes this car. If you need a cheap ride, find something else.

Review

Every little plastic nob came off in my hand or broke completely. The e- brake came off the shaft once as it was only held on by a single little screw. The shocks were so soft and the suspension so undersprung, you could drive it around a corner at 20mph and the fuel pump couldn't get enough gas to keep the engine running because it leaned so heavily. It had the GM-Paint Disease, where the EPA mandated paint wasn't properly matched to the primer and began to wash off. This is a rust-free car, mind you. Horribly underpowered breaks. Paper- plate speakers produce a lovely timberless sound quality that can turn even your favorite song into dreadful noise.


Best Features

The transmission actually shifts well, if it weren't for the 1/2lb clutch.


Worst Features

It would look a lot better after a few minutes in a junk-car crusher.
