Not one of General Motors’ better ideas, the “Pontiac” LeMans of the late 1980s and early 1990s was actually a rebadged, Opel-designed and Korean-built Daewoo of notoriously poor quality (called the Nexia in its home market and the Vauxhall Astra in Europe). It came back for repairs under warranty (and afterward) more often than Elvis visited the refrigerator during his “husky” period and was just as likely to fail in the middle of a performance. An “Aerocoupe VL” or “value leader” model was offered that came with no power steering, no air conditioning, and no power accessories.

It was only badged Vauxhall Astra for the UK market. Elsewhere in Europe it was known as the Opel Kadett.

From 1992 Opel adopted the Astra model name, current Astras being sold as both Opels & Vauxhalls.
