1992 Chevrolet Beretta GT 3.1 F.I. from North America


Except for transmission problems I would buy this car again in a second


I purchased the car with a rebuilt transmission. Recently the transmission is starting to act up again.

When it rains I get puddles of water on the left side of both the drivers and passenger floors.

The clear coat is coming off in three spots, but apparently fairly common for this vintage.

The front drivers seat is extremely worn, but a set of nitrous seat covers fixed that.

General Comments:

The 3.1L engine is extremely responsive and the car brakes and handles like a much more expensive sport car.

The interior is very nice and looks a lot less cheap than many cars I have owned.

All the controls are located very conveniently so as not to take your eyes off the road.

This car even at 13 years old turns a lot of heads.

1992 Chevrolet Beretta Coupe 2.2 from North America


A very dependable means of transportation


Head gasket had to be replaced at about 125,000 miles.

Air condition compressor had to be replaced at about 130,000 miles.

New clutch, front struts, and starter at 200,000 miles.

Driver side seat has worn badly, but car seat covers have taken care of that.

Alternator has been replaced twice in its life.

General maintenance to include brakes and tires, oil changes.

No other major problems.

General Comments:

This is a fantastic car.

I bought this car brand new off of the lot in June of 1992. It is very dependable.

I drive it now as a work car because of the incredible gas mileage it gets still at over 200,000 miles. It gets 35 miles to the gallon easy.

I would definitely buy another Beretta if Chevrolet still manufactured them.

I would never sell this car because although it is old, it is very dependable and it has NEVER left me walking.

Definitely five stars for my Beretta.

Great Performance and Looks..


I got the car when I was 18 as my first car back in 1996. Over it's life, it was extremely reliable, with most costs coming from things I caused as a speedy teenager.

The last year of it's life in 2003 was a little expensive, it had hit 125000 miles, and required a rebuilt transmission, brakes, shocks, struts, alternator and battery. It was 12 years old at this point, so that's not really too bad considering I was pretty abusive through my teenage years.

General Comments:

I truly loved this car. It was fast and looked extremely good, and for it's age was remarkably reliable. I know a lot of Beretta's have issues with head gaskets, fallen liners, etc, but mine never did. Sadly, it was totaled in Atlantic City two days after Christmas in 2003 by a speeding BMW. Even after losing it's entire rear, it still drove out of a parking garage to get itself on the tow truck. I will truly miss this car, it was an amazing machine. If GM had not ended the line I'd certainly be getting another.

1992 Chevrolet Beretta GT 3.1 Multiport Fuel Injection from North America


An underrated car for the money


Replaced front brake calipers and hoses for the first time since owning after putting 50,000 on the car (there are 4 brake hoses for the front wheels, most cars only have 2).

A wire between the solenoid and starter frayed apart, but I simply installed a rebuilt starter.

Not that I needed to, but I had the following components replaced this over the summer: fuel filter, fuel pump, fuel control module, and battery.

Driver seat has began to wear, I installed a pair of seat covers that compliment the interior.

I also replaced the driver side sun visor.

New tires were added last year (wrapped around 16" GTZ low profiles).

I installed a white face glow pannel this summer. It's tricky with the 6 needle display because you have to thread all six at the same time.

General Comments:

This car is a lot of fun, it's the first I've bought myself. When I got the car there was a 2 year old rebuilt 3.1 V-6 engine installed and a new motor mount, new catalytic converter, new euro clear tail lamps.

I use Lucas additives on power steering, transmission and oil.

I use Penzoil full synthetic 10W-30 motor oil.

I also installed a K&N flitercharger and drilled holes in the top of my airbox. Only a cone will do better for natural aspiration. This upgrade improved the sound of the car as well as power output. I then had a glasspack exhaust installed with chrome dual tip.

I can keep up with a Grand Am GT which has a bigger V-6 3400 CC vs. my 3100 CC.

The car handles very well, steering is extremely sensitive. I wish the suspension was tighter. I can take a curve marked "35 mph" at 60 without the front end walking although I won't be doing it again.
