7: Chevy Corsica
The Corsica was a compact car built by GM in the 1980s and 1990s. The compact design of the car was popular with rental car fleets and used car lots. The problem was that the design of the car was inherently cheap and it gave Chevrolet a cheap reputation. The cars coming out of Japan were far more advanced in terms of design and quality. The cheapest cars from Honda and Toyota were running circles around the Corsica (via Motor Biscuit).
The Corsica shared its platform with the Chevy Beretta, a two-door sports car. While both cars sold in average numbers they didn’t do much to boost the reputation that GM had for cheap products. Between the lackluster build quality and the questionable performance, the Corsica just didn’t latch on with consumers. There are a few cars remembered for being hunks of junk and the Corsica is one of these cars.
