Red Hot Beretta — This was my first "newer" model car. It was fire engine red and looked awesome after a wash and wax. I had it for approx 4 years. It was a bit underpowered, but was probably a good thing at the age I was when I owned it! Would love to drive one again today.

Love The Car. Bought A Used One Instead Of A New Car. — I love the body style and the sporty look of the Beretta. I Hate the fact that GM used horrible primer and most of the cars look horrible and GM won't do anything about it. GM didn't take alot of pride in making this car but I think they are well worth fixing them up. I love the Beretta!

My Baby — Good performance for an older GM car, build quality isnt the best due to age and all. Berettas seem to be fairly reliable and cheap cars. Good for starter cars or for project cars. six five four three two one

Pros

Has a good engine

Cons

It's difficult to work on. Worst car I've ever fixed. Breaks are not the best.

Beretta Review. — First car I've owned personally. It's held up alright, but damn is it a pain in the ass to fix. My dad is a mechanic, and it's one of the most difficult cars he's ever fixed. The brakes are complete crap. I drive pretty conservatively, but they don't last long and they're not very strong even right after you change them. It seems to have a good engine though.

Drivetrain will outlive my interest in this car

Was an imported american rust bucket (underneath)

Solid Transportation — With an engine out of a 2003 Gran Am GT, this thing is faster then the average Beretta. But its still got a Granny Tranny and is better suited to the highway. Good thing thats what I'm using it for, commuting 200km every couple weeks.

Badass Little Car — I bought this car for a college beater. Its been a good car for me. The rims were on it when i got it and all i added was an infinity sound system. Its one sexy machine.

This Is A Nice First Car For Anyone Looking To Buy Cheap. By Nate

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. Read More
