"We owned this car for 13 years. We bought it in Florida then drove it home to northern Pennsylvania 1997. I just recently had to put it to rest after 180,000 miles when i snapped the crank shaft which tore the engine to pieces. This is the fastest car I have ever owned, the 3100 V6 is bulletproof and I can't tell you how many mustangs I have killed on the highway. The comfort is good for the price of the car. The styling is great considering the butt ugly cars rolling of the line in the 90s. The quality of the car is incredible for the first 179900 miles we never had to do anything major. PLEAS DON'T LET THE LEGEND OF THE BERETTA DIE!!"

"I purchased my 96 in 2002 with 97000 miles one it. It was in slight disrepair and had to do some suspension work and replace the intake gaskets, since then. I have only done routine maintenace- including new shocks, oil changes, tires, brakes with the exception of the AC compressor that went out in 2005. Today I have 151000 miles on my car and still love it. I will be getting rid of it soon only because I have simply outgrown it (family wise). The one thing that I have to say that could be considered a negative is that since I've owned the car (and when I purchased it) the check engine light has been on. I have had it checked at autozone NUMEROUS times, as well as had it checked at a shop. I have replaced ALL of the O2 sensors (it was not running bad at all- but that's what the codes were saying was wrong) as well as a few other sensors and every time I get the light to go off, it comes back on within 48 hours. I have gotten use to it being on now, so i don't worry too much about it. I have learned to pay attention to the other signs. That is the only bad thing about this car. People have mentioned the lifter clatter that the 3.1 V6's have- and every single one I have had has done the same thing. I use a little better oil (Valvoline Max life) and let it warm up before I go anywhere (via remote start- love that by the way) The clatter has not gotten any better or worse, so I just drive it like I always do."
