Yeah, why hasn't onstar been used to find your car? Even if you have to re-activate it for a month, it would be worth it to find your car!!!

Yes, no OnStar? I would be talking to them about activating it and have the police close in on it!

Nah, all fault of my own I didn't have OnStar activated, basically just bought it and didn't cross my mind. I tried to get then to activate it after the fact, but was told it couldn't be done *facepalm

How can you not activate OnStar for a car you own? This doesn't seem right...

You can have it activated any time. Call and speak with someone different or a supervisor.

I keep getting told it can't be done without actually being in the car to press the blue button. I think it's bs, because what if I suddenly took off an stopped making payments? I'm sure they'd hav no problem helping the repo man but eh cest la vie...

Yeah, you have to push the button. Doesn't make a hell of a lot of sense to me.

remember last year when everyone freaked out about OnStar being able to track a vehicle after an account had been canceled?? Not that they would but people were scared they might? Well because of the legislation that came of that OnStar is no longer able to track a vehicle that hasn't been activated buy the Blue Button Press.....So Sorry Brendan that you still haven't found your car
Before that legislation OnStar would have been able to activate it for you and you'd have your car back now

Wow that does suck. Didn't know about the legislation that was passed. It's good in a way but bad in an instance like this. Hope they find it soon or you get a new one.

Do you know where this guy moved to or know where any of his buddies are? I didn't think it would be that hard to find a stolen Camaro????

With OnStar, if you've had it activated in the past and this happens, can it be remote started with a password? Or only with pressing the button regardless? Just curious.

Yeah, I've kept my onstar since I got the car. I just put my account "on hold" during the winter when the car is parked. I also bitched about the price difference between America onstar and Canadian, and now I'm only paying $16.95 + GST a month for it. Last couple years they gave me free nav too. With the free nav in iPhone I didn't bother negotiating for it this time
