Pros

the acceleration and handling were very good. the design was also pretty cool for 89.

Cons

Barretta Gt — I loved this car. 135hp V6 and a Getrag 5speed box. it was loaded and handled really well. Got great milage. Had fuel injection and the GT package. Traded it for a firebird which was nice too. A very fun car to drive and against the Mustang GT's of the time which were in the hands of inexperienced drivers, it held it's own.

Good — I own a 6 cylinder and I love the speed that is gives me. Since it's an older version it did need some work done on the engine. The interior is great, it is a small car not meant to hold too many people.

Fun Car To Own. — The beretta gtu was known to have better handling than BMW's back in the day. The gtu was a special edition beretta, but it didnt have the quad4 engine like the gtz, it only had a 2.8 v-6. When I drove it, which was not much, it was very fun to drive with its 5spd manual transmission.

This Is A Nice First Car For Anyone Looking To Buy Cheap. — This was a very fun car to drive, it had a 3.1liter engine swap, and it had some good torque as well. I bought all 4 rims for 100 bucks at a junkyard, and it never had any mods, just intake.

1989 Chevrolet Beretta 2-door — This was my second car and I actually liked it. Acceleration was great. Braking and handling were awesome. This car looked good and had many different aftermarket parts to choose from. Stock rims were decent looking and much better than hubcaps that most cars came with. Electrical had a few problems, but nothing too bad. Got decent gas mileage and didn't require too much maintenance. It was a very fun car to drive.
