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.

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.

Because there are thieves

So we make locks and keys.

It has been an issue before recorded history.

Driver's stupidity for leaving the keys in the car aside...

I actually feel a lot more comfortable about having OnStar than I would if I simply had an alarm or LoJack even.

If my car was stolen, my first call would be to OnStar directly. They will then alert the authorities on your behalf, give them all necessary information, and coordinate the recovery.

I leave the car running all the time when I am running in and out of the store for a minute. However, I lock the car and have a spare set of keys to use. Camaro defaults so that when running, driver's side door will not lock so you have to manually lock it outside of the car, which is fine.

Personally, I hate OnStar, want nothing to do with it. I had to sign a statement sheet at the dealership (Medved, Castle Rock, CO) stating I wouldn't "sell" the OnStar chip...which makes me wonder how much it is worth. So I am going to rip it out and perhaps give it away for a small donation to my favorite charity the MYOB Club. The day I need some nitwit sitting in a cubicle looking over my shoulder is the day I quit driving.

Thank you.

The website is called "The Blaze", I rest my case
Of all cars on of the hottest American Muscle cars ever. I always lock and take my key at the pump. Even today some hot chicks were checking my car out . I stepped on the pedal a little harder than needed in neutral just to give them a dose of the exhaust rumble as I drove by when I was done.

Not bursting my bubble. Never leave my keys in the car. Just surprised at some of the comments towards a fellow Camaro owner.

Tough love?

I don't know if others feel this but there are a lot of people lacking common sense these days and sometimes its experiences like this will make them learn and if not there's the salt in the wounds if they ever want to look online.

What if the Camaro driver was actually going to shoot up the gas station and rob all the money and merchandise? If you think about it, the Camaro thief may have thwarted a massacre from occuring...

They still use on Star to track all vehicles. I own a 07 Equoinox with 100,000 miles on it and GM sent me a notice that I need a 100,000 mile service on it. How do they know I do all my own srevice? Also if you have State Farm Insurance the are in Bed with On Star! I get notices on my 04 Silverado and I am sure I will get them on my ZL1 with 4000 miles on it.
