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.
My favorite Beretta memory was selling
it to someone else.
There is a reason GM no longer makes
this car. If you need a cheap ride,
find something else.
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
The transmission actually shifts well,
if it weren't for the 1/2lb clutch.
It would look a lot better after a few
minutes in a junk-car crusher.
Hi, about one month ago I went and
bought my first car went out and bought
a 92 Chevy Beretta GT black with the
teal pinstripe and teal and crome
wheels looks perfect never seen a car
look so good with its age. The car has
just a little over 76000 miles on it
and i bought it on its looks. I have
done more work to this car then i knew
could be done had to have regular work
done yeah ok but i had to replace the
head because it was cracked the started
struts radiator and who knows what next
my recommendation is not to buy one i
am already ready to sell it.
My favorite feature would have to be my
soundsystem that i installed.
