Mid-80s GM Crap Carry-Over
By VonBounden on
1992 Chevrolet Beretta GT 2dr Coupe
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.
