2012 Chevrolet Sonic: Crank-Calling OnStar

February 02, 2012


This is our long-term 2012 Chevrolet Sonic's manual day/night mirror. I use the night function a lot when I'm driving small cars in the dark, and I'll usually toggle between the two frequently, depending on traffic density.

Notice how close the OnStar buttons are to the lever. When we first got the Sonic, I spent a long weekend with it... I really enjoy driving it -- good ride, good shifter, good torque. During that time, I accidentally called OnStar four times. After the second incident, I learned to use the cancel function that comes up on the car's head unit.

OnStar buttons on a manual day/night mirror... not a good combination.
