Got a 89 GT for our daughter. Needed all lights on the whole car to be replaced and that added up. The dashboard is in bad shape and the windshield visors are misshaped. Interior seems to all be falling apart. We got it for 400.00 so won't complain too much. Now we are leaking some type of fluid under the front end. Not sure yet what that is. After finally driving it on her own last week for one day the muffler is now making noises. We are told it will need to be replaced. I guess once we get it out and can finally drive it maybe things will get better. You get what you pay for, but I'm sure once all the bugs are out it will be a nice car to last maybe a few more years. She likes it cause its so sporty... (smile)

I own an 89 GT I bought it for 300.00 and it seems like ever since I got it everything has gone wrong. The ignition switch broke and I had to replace it, it cost me 365.00 which is more than I paid for the car. Now if I drive it for more than 15 miles in town at one time it starts to sputter and eventually it will die. They paint looks good, but the interior is starting to fall apart. The dash is cracking and starting to come unglued. So it looks terrible. It is a fun car to drive because it is sporty, but I cannot wait to get rid of it.

Hey I am the one that my daughter got her car for 400.00 and we are having the same problem. She has had a oil change and all that goes with that, and the car is still losing oil pressure on her gauge and the car will stall out on her. Her uncle works for GM and has replaced a lot, and I mean a lot, of parts on the car for her, and now we are having this problem. I have tried to search on why the engine is stalling, but seem to get nowhere. If anyone has a idea, please let me know on here. Thanks... hate to sell the car after so much has gone into it, and it seems to drive so nice.

I have a problem My 1989 Beretta runs great for 400 bucks but it won't idle below 1250 and I can't get on it,from a dead stop, it without the car atempting to die. In motion I can get on it and it will do just fine.

Someone help me out before I spend more $ on my 1989 Beretta.
Why does it keep stalling? Have new fuel pump and filter, new spark plugs and wires. Now the mechanic says I need fuel injectors that will take 3-5 days to arrive.

Chevrolet Berettas are one of the worst car models General Motors has ever made.
They had tons of problems, among the worst being bad paint jobs and bad engine problems.
The problems went away when GM stopped making the cars.
