What is the sound of one piston slapping?

As car enthusiasts we find something we like in all cars. I am sure there is one car out there that we all hate for one reason or another. I want to know what car drives you up the wall, makes you want to punch kittens and is generally repulsive. Post a reason why you hate it so much too.

For me it would have to be the Chevy Cavalier / Pontiac Sunfire duo.

There are several reasons why I hate these cars. They are some of the last remaining cars from the "old" GM when quantity mattered more than quality. They were cheap when new and somehow ended up being hand me down cars for teenagers. I still see plenty of these turd buckets rolling around usually piloted by the aforementioned teenagers or 70 year old ladies. For some reason senior citizens were attracted to these as well. I always figured that the reason old people bought these is to look hip to the young crowd. One day they heard their grand kids saying how uncool the Grand Marquis or Cadillac Deville was so they up and went to the GM dealer to pick up a "cool" car. Cavaliers were small, fuel efficient and seemed "hip" at the time. Not to mention cheap so naturally that was the perfect selection. Little did they know...

The drivetrain was actually surprisingly decent and can last...probably why I still see so many of these around. It's everything else that I hate. The styling, the interior, those cheap plastic, Walmart looking wheel covers.
