Stolen Vehicle Slowdown Foils Carjacker

Jose Ruiz is proud of his Chevy Tahoe. One night, as he and his cousin were sitting in the truck, a stranger with a shotgun demanded Jose’s Tahoe along with their wallets. When Jose’s cousin started to argue with the thief, Jose calmly told him to comply with the carjacker’s demands.

Jose knew he’d get his Tahoe back, because he has OnStar. He knew OnStar could let law enforcement know where his Tahoe was. But it was how he got it back — with the help of OnStar Stolen Vehicle Slowdown®1 — and how soon it was returned that truly amazed him.
