Onstar is Pretty Cool

So I've had my econo XFE Cobalt for a month now and I already received an e-mail with the vehicle diagnotics listed in it. That is pretty impressive for the price of this car. I'm sure my Ford with SYNC do this, but I can't figure it out and nobody thought it help me when I bought them. I did nothing in this case, the Chrevrolet dealership got it all set up for me. Pretty cool.

The Cobalt runs great and is getting about 34mpg mixed. I'm happy with it.

Onstar has been standard since 2008.

That being said, I wouldn't have a need for it.

My free Onstar is just now ending. I won't be paying for it. I am also going to get rid of that ugly antenna and swap it for an XM only antenna.

Onstar saved me once when i locked my keys in my car. I learned my lession and will not be doing that again. So the $250 a year to renew I just cant justify.

I don't have power locks so Onstar can't save me from locking my keys in lol.

As long as we're on the topic, I just canceled my Onstar tonight lol. The free trial was ending so I cut them off, weeeee.
