Looks like she did do more than just show interest.....

I have a quick question. When my initial 30 minutes of free onstar calling ran out I bought 300 minutes. Why do they expire in only 6 months from the time I bought the car? They expire December 18th and I still have over 200 minutes. According to my last onstar email my service is active until March 18th 2013. Shouldn't they run out at the same time?

It's nice that Onstar has a social media team and can be reached via Camaro5, and clearly Jessica was on it and kudos to her for getting minutes restored for someone.

However, this is very different than what one can expect from the car side of GM Customer Service. They have little authority and offers to help here are simply a show. It's not the customer reps fault, they are merely doing their job as social media team reps. But very different issues we are discussing here esp since a dealer isn't involved.

My experience with OnStar has been if there is a mistake whether it is mine or theirs that OnStar takes full responsibility for any problems if you let them know about it. I love OnStar and will keep it for as long as I own the car. I even purchased a kit for my 85 yr old fathers Honda Minivan to have installed in his car so we can keep track of him and know where he is at all times while driving, just in case.

OOO, buying a house, how exciting. Congrats on your prospective purchase. While you are looking, look for a garage with a house attached. As long as your new home has a nice garage you will never be disapointed.

Buy a garmin, its easier.

Hello Angrybird 12,

The Hands Free Calling minutes have their own expiration date from your subscription. The minutes typically have a year expiration date from the day they were purchased, but some promotional bundles have a 6 month expiration. They require an active OnStar subscription in order to be used. At any time before the minutes expire you can purchase another small bundle, we usually have a promotional 30 minute bundle, to extend and roll over any remaining minutes. If you purchase minutes on the day of your subscription renewal then the dates will match up for your convenience. I hope that helps, let me know if you have any other questions.

I agree, its refreshing to see Onstar taking care of business on C5. I renewed my Onstar service a few months ago, I haven't had any issues with it and its peace of mind knowing its there.

I have bought a new camaro on November 26 set up Onstar and it has not worked yet. I have called Onstar numerous times and have not got problem fixed yet. I am only being told I have been promoted to a senior advisor but nothing is happening. No report or update on my status. I have a 2012 gmc terain that has an active subscription that I am going to cancel if this problem doesn't get resolved quickly. To have a brand new car that doesn't work properly is so frustrating. The dealer has tried to work on it but I was told it was Onstar problem and they were told the same thing it was upgraded to a senior advisor. This has Been going on for weeks now. Can someone please help.

Hi Schutcher,

I am sorry to hear that this is happening. Can you send me a PM with your account # or VIN? I can look into that case and see if I can help correct what is causing the problem.

OnStar is a great service to have on your car. I took a tour of the OnStar comand center here in the Ren Cen in downtown Detroit when I joined GM. It's a very humbling feeling when you're watching the screen and little icons are appearing on the map of the US as the OnStar module detects vehicle crashes and you know someone's life is in jeopardy just because of that little icon. The tour guide we had told us that when there's large disasters (like the bridge collapse a few years ago) that OnStar is usually one of the first ones to know.

Jessica, am I reading this right. If I bought handsfree minutes, never used them and they expire. I can contact customer service and get them restored?

Hi bkscott,

Yes, the hands free minutes can usually be rolled over or restored with a purchase of hands free calling minutes. We usually have a small 30 minute bundle available for this purpose.

Jessica Thanks for looking into this but the things you did did not work. Tried the updates last night. Then the phone and turn by turn still would not work. I was in town in Louisville Ms. I was then told the same thing I was permitted to a senior advisor.
