And I don't really car how they make the horsepower, whether it a Turbo, supercharged or just a whole lot of hamsters.

Not sure why the driver crashed into bushes when the car was disabled...
As someone who was in an accident with Onstar (Hit a deer) you lose complete control of the car when they kill the engine. Had Onstar not killed control of my vehicle I could've stayed on the road. However when you lose complete acceleration and power steering instantly it's brutal.

Not true. With vehicle shut down you only lose acceleration, you still have full steering and brakes.

Sure people make mistakes but you have a 1 month old 25-30k+ car. You dont forget to take the keys out of a brand new car I dont care who you are. That vehicle was still in the permagrin infancy stage. He was just a a dumb ass lol. Thief: Hey nice Camaro , Idiot: "Thanks" sits and watches as random guy Opens his door and drives off in his car . Now if he left the door open and the keys in the ignition thats even more idiotic lol.

The Blaze members are some of the most racist and ignorant MFs I have ever read from.
Am I wrong if I hate racist?

Really?? Whoever thought of this poll is obviously wearing a tin foil hat.. and so is all the people that voted that choice.

Think some errant employee is randomly shutting down cars? or do they think it's some sort of marketing scam (renew your subscription, or we'll randomly shut your car down!"?
Computer systems are easy as hell to hack. I bet something already exists that can remotely shut down these devices with a mimicked signal from a laptop.

Depends on the encryption level of the signal, and a host of other factors.

Is it possible to hack? I'm sure it is. Just about anything is possible. But if it was as easy as the "tin-hatters" might lead you to believe, there'd be a host of lawsuits and news reports by now. OnStar has had this feature on lots of GM cars for quite a while now.

Remember that there is a huge difference to what is Possible to do, and what is Probable to do.

I can't believe some of these responses. The name calling about leaving keys in a car. Why can't someone leave THEIR keys in THEIR car without someone stealing it? It's not the owner's fault because some scumbag doesn't understand and follow life's simple rules.

No, but regardless, everyone deserves to be shown respect for the simple fact that they are human.

Hate to burst your perfect world bubble but its the world we live in. Sadly if you give someone an inch, they'll want a mile and this guy took it for longer than that in that guy's Camaro.

Maybe I'm paranoid but I NEVER EVER leave either of my cars running even if I go in somewhere for a second even in my neighborhood

This for sure, judging by a lot of the necessary feed processes going on just to do a simple call to OnStar from your car. I'm sure there is a mess of encryption just to bring up the option to disable your car's acceleration or even unlock it. For those who use the app to unlock your doors, just look at the time delay. That's not just network delay there is a lot going on between your phone, the server(s) and the computer in your car.
