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.
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 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.
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.
