Oil should be changed every 3000 miles, I have to add oil every 1000 - 1500 miles, not under warranty anymore, it should not leak after seal was replaced.

problem #10

Beretta

Vehicle has intermitent loss of power which can occur at highway speeds. Vehicle has been serviced five times; yet, the problem is recurring. The engine makes a ticking noise, and power drops to about 35 mph. Dealer replaced fuel filter, fuel pump, fuel guage, O2 sensor. This time, the dealer insists that it must be a clogged catalytic converter. It is dangerous to lose vehicle power on a major highway, and it is aggravating to be told by a dealer that the "problem" has been "fixed" for the fifth time."

- Winterville, GA, USA
