Recovering a Senator’s Stolen Vehicle

Mississippi State Senator Terry Burton was on a routine visit to the Mississippi Trade Mart when his car was stolen from the parking lot.

Luckily, the 2009 Chevrolet Impala was equipped with OnStar, which includes Stolen Vehicle Assistance. So when the senator realized the car had been taken, he immediately contacted OnStar. Watch what happened next:

Since its launch in 2008, Stolen Vehicle Slowdown has been used nearly 60 times. Read about how the service helped catch the carjackers who stole Laura Anderson’s TrailBlazer and the thief who took Jose Ruiz’s Tahoe.

    Hi i thought Government had special protection or trackers on their cars but who would think of stealing a Government car.

    Question? Can OnStar be adapted to any vehicle, or is it exclusive to GM products? E.g., I have a 1990 B 2200 Mazda pickup. Can On Star be adapted to that?
