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.
Well, it ran, I guess.
Riding the bus instead of buying this car would have been an improvement.
I bought the car at 141,000 miles and
it still looked and ran great. I drove
it for a year and a half and put about
22,000 more miles on it in that time,
having only to replace an alternator
and the exhaust. I drove that car hard
too, and it kept on taking the
pounding. The fuel pump finally went
on the car just recently, and due to
the vehicles milage, I decided against
fixing it. Now I'm looking to buy
either a 96 monte carlo or another
Beretta, this time a 94.
The interior was comfy and suprisingly
roomy. The 3.1L engine had a lot of
power and I loved the sound it made, it
was much deeper than most other engines
of that displacement.
The interior didn't have many features
to it, but I can't really complain
about the car. I loved it.
I love my Beretta! All the websites say that I should only be getting around 30 mpg, but I can average 35mpg on anyday of the week!! I have the Base beretta with the 2.2ltr mated with the 5 speed manual. The car has more acceleration that I could ever ask for and I can beat alot of cars with twice the engine I have!
I like how the interior is set up. I have the new interior, and I think GM did a great job over the last one. The old interior is just plain ugly!
I only thing I can think of to improve is the engine noise inside the car. When you get the engine in high RPM's you can really hear it inside the car! It gets kind of annoying after awhile!
