Take it to the freaking dealer. There is your answer.

Some threads on here are so ridiculous. It's a new, stock car. Take it to the pros.

Either take to dealer, or call OnStar back and get the actual code(s) and look up what they mean. This description is not helpful...

Figured it might be something I can fix in a matter if minutes , rather than spending, I mean wasting my time at the dealer .
When I become independently weathly and enjoy sitting in dealer waiting rooms like you....I stop asking ridiculous questions

THANKS

It is definitely best to take your vehicle to a dealership for proper diagnosis. There could be many reasons why the engine is not emitting exhaust properly. Please let me know if you are taking this route.

With responses like that I can only assume someone has jammed a potato in your exhaust.
