Funny how GM seems to claim that in their pre-bailout ads that "gee, we care about the customer", and then they cut corners by rushing OnStar to production in 2001 by partnering with Verizon Wireless to power it rather than taking the time, effort, energy, and money to build OnStar completely from the ground up so that any vehicle with OnStar would work with it as long as you kept your payment up. The fact that OnStar is not a sir vice of GM but rather someone that GM middle manned it out to leaves me unwilling to buy a 2001 or later GM vehicle even when we had the opportunity because of crap like this that was pushed in the name of helping the user. Notice how post-bailout their ad strategy turned into "gee, everyone else is buying GM, so you should too" instead of "we're trying with each model year to make the GM owner's life better." It still isn't true, but at least it won't leave you stranded with no way out the way cutting corners with OnStar might. I will do what I can for you whether you want it or not and my Momma will be doing the same once I tell her. Even you don't deserve to be stranded, in case I might have a disagreement with you in the future.Report it
