    .

    I dunno, I could have used the remote unlocking feature a while back in my truck. It was winter and I took my truck to a self car wash. As I was vacumming the insides two things happened. While vacumming I hit the lock button on the door and when putting the vacum back the door closed just enough to latch it self. Of course I had no tools and it was close to night time so no mexicans or jimmies we're available :-(

    The police can call OnStar and have them disable your vehicle anytime.

    I want to thank onstar for nothing. I want everyone to know that yesterday I came across a young woman that locked her infant in her 2011 camaro. It was a cool 100 degree outside probably close to 110 inside the car. She had just picked her new red camaro up from her dealer just the day before. I called onstar emergency # supplied them with the vin # of the car and asked if they could help in such an emergency situation. They were glad to help if she provided them with a credit card # over the phone so they could set up her account. Since her purse was locked in the car with the baby they were unable to help in any way. I was very disappointed in them. This was the best sales opportunity every if they would have just opened the d*** door we all would have signed up for onstar on the spot. Thank you onstar for almost taking the life of a new born and helping create a stressfull situation.
