2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray: Expired OnStar
June 9, 2014
As part of the purchase deal, Chevy throws in six months of free OnStar service with the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray. Six months is up and now we're on our own.
Free for the first six months, OnStar's Directions and Connections (automatic crash response, emergency services, hands-free calling, RemoteLink Mobile App, stolen vehicle assistance, roadside assistance, remote service, vehicle diagnostics, and turn-by-turn navigation) costs $29.00 per month with varying discounts if you subscribe for 1, 2 or 3 years.
We've yet to use OnStar in our C7, but I know that little blue light gave me the confidence to go another 100-or-so miles in the middle of nowhere Utah when the snow started to fall and Scott probably could have used it when he got stuck in Colorado on the same trip.
We have cell phones and drive mostly in highly developed areas. Do we really need to re-up this service? What would you do?
