A Cheaply manufactured foreign car that has a General Motors badge on it. Build quality is nothing short of terrible. None of the parts fit right. Vital components tend to break before non vital ones (Ignition breaks before the stereo does), With it's tiny, emission-control choked I-4 it sounds as cheap as it is.
Has a terribly short life expectancy.
Me: Wow. We have a 98 Cavalier in the shop already, eh? What Happened?
Dan: What didn't? The timing belt snapped like glass dipped in dry-ice, the ignition won't turn, the starter is history, and it's stuck in 3rd gear.
Me: I see... How many miles does it have on it.
Dan: About 63K.
