MotorWeek | Retro Review: '90 Chevy Beretta GTZ By admin | November 11, 2021 | 50 MotorWeek | Retro Review: '90 Chevy Beretta GTZ Hand pump lumbar support = serious sports seats! Posted in Beretta
i sitll want one!
I always wanted this car, until I found out how much a Fusion Pump cost for this vehicle……..
I had a 90 GTZ …loved it til the Quad 4 blew the head gasket….a chronic issue…it sure looked great and loved the manual trans.
This was my first car, black and gray manual. Drove it till it would not drive no more.
I had a 89 GT 5 speed. Top speed was 120 due to chip. Fun car and nice looking.
It’s a cool looking car
These old cars get better mpg than a lot of modern cars🤔
I will never forget closing the door on a brand new 1992 Beretta GT. The door sounded like it was going to literally fall apart or that a large portion of the actual side window had cracked apart. Or the manual transmission. About as smooth as butter mixed with large amount of sharpnel and broken nails. GM quality at it’s best. Utter junk .
Them motors were powerful and also very weak timing chains. Hated them motors! !
A shame such an attractive car is plagued by gm cost cutting.
I love my 99 lumina 9C3 …
Holy shit that Hass to be the absolute worst interior of a vehicle I’ve ever seen I would rather drive in 1991 tractor than that
Quad 4 was one of the worst engines GM ever made, I preferred the Beretta GT with the 3.1L
I a 1993 took one for a test drive. It was a very nice car. But, I ended up with a 6 cylinder Pontiac Grand Am 2 door sedan. I miss being able to buy an inexpensive sports coupe. Now, some auto companies want to get rid of the 4 door sedan.
2.8 and 3.1 always sounded pretty good with a nice little green light punch. Just saw the quad 4 engine in it. Absolutely garbage
I’d rather have the turbo awd Eclipse.
I had a 91 GT.. I really liked it. Motor mount went bad.. drove like hell after that. Love the look and the rims.
I had a 92 automatic with the exhaust leak and the wave decals felt baller it was smooth
is the driver when shifting wearing a class ring ? wow…
I blew up a couple head gaskets on the quad four . This thing was pretty fun tho
A 180hp 4cyl from GM in 1990?????
Berettas were are/ such crap! Indicative of most vehicles beginning in the late 1970s.
Thought he was going to smoke the clutch in the 1/4 mile
Pumping up your seats while pumping up your shoes….1990 at it’s finest.
Looking back GM is one of those brands that Line Up look Good 20 Years later but were slept on Brand New!
I had a1992 Gtz white in 1992 5 speed that car was fast I am 54 years old I’ve been driving causeway long time this car had one of the best clutches of ever driven and I used to eat 5.0’s for dinner
Ae amigão que seleção de carros importados 👏👏 é uma maravilha vê essa raridade automobilística mundial 🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷🇱🇷🇱🇷🇱🇷
4:03 comes standard with the Service Engine Soon light illuminated. A tradition GM has carried through to present day.
these were such junk! they only lasted a few years and then all went to the wrecker!
It was a few of these on my town when I was growing up
Chevy engineers: what do we call this suspension?
Um, level IIII
I dated a girl that had one of these way back in the 90s. All white with white wheels. Manual transmission. It was a ripper! Surprisingly fast.
A short shifter would have made a difference
These 90s economy cars will be worth a fortune in 20 years. Cash for clunkers removed alot of good condition 90s cars. Please if you have one of these kind of cars berrettas, corsicas, grand prix, sun bird, escort, focus, etc please take care of it. Obama screwed us car guys over.
I had the 4 door – Corsica LTZ 3.1 V6 with 5 speed, in black. Never had a problem. Sold it with 200k kms.
@3:57 you can hear the window clunk as the door shuts awesome Chevy quality!
Fun fact: some people paid money for these.
Fun car but those HO quad 4s would make your ears bleed at full throttle
Owned one. Quick car
That shifter is out of an 18 wheeler…
Loved at car. That quad 4 ran good
3:49 It came with a penis pump for them hot dates in a hot car! I miss the 90s!
Neck snapping power.
My Dad used to have a black 89 Beretta GT. I loved that car.
Unfortunately, the Beretta GTZ came only with the 180hp Quad 4 engine with manual transmission! I would want one with the 160hp Quad 4 engine with automatic transmission! The slight torque steer you get in this car would be livable if I could get air conditioning and a CD player!
My mom had an 88 beretta 2.0. Goid solid car. Only issue it ever had that comes to memory was the muffler blowing open on the highway whitch sounded like a tire blowing. We were on a trip from ohio to wva at the time. Otherwise good car
My first car was a stock 89 Beretta with a 5 speed. Very fun first car!
GM Quad 4 = American 4-AGE?
First car I had was this Beretta with the wheels. Wrecked it soon after. Mom still thinks I hit a curb. I don’t know what I hit but it wasn’t good.
The engine this Beretta has is basically what happened if Chevy makes an equivalent to Toyota’s Beams 3S or Honda’s K24 engine back then. It’s rare to find a 2.4 liter NA engine with more than 150hp back then.
