Happy Birthday, OnStar!

Birthday cake surrounded by confetti. Cake has blue frosting with a white border, and the OnStar logo in white frosting.

This month, OnStar celebrates its 16th birthday. In honor of the occasion, Connections takes note of some key milestones in the company’s history:

Next month, we’ll continue the OnStar birthday celebration by talking with some of the longest-serving OnStar Advisors.

    Just like having a Linus approved security blanket.

    I’ve had Onstar since I bought one of the first 2000 Cadillac DTS’ in November, 1999! Wow! Almost 13 years.

    I’m a fairly new member. Tried the 3 month free trial and bought the safe and sound package for one year. Also bought some minutes for the hands free calling. Only had OnStar since Sept. of 2013. I was surprised at the free trial, but my 2007 Chevy Trailblazer came equipped with the OnStar mirror. I feel so much safer driving anywhere, anytime now. I really like the vehicle Diagnostics every month, the Theft deterrent, and the automatic crash response. Thanks OnStar for being there 24/7.
