Automatic Crash Response
Every minute counts. Built-in sensors can automatically alert an OnStar Advisor when a crash has taken place. Using this information, Advisors can help prepare first responders based upon predicted severity.
Thea Cassia, MI
"An OnStar Advisor was asking if I was OK. He told me I had been in an accident and said they were calling an ambulance and the police. He asked if I was bleeding or if I felt like anything was broken. It made me feel better that there was someone there to make sure I was OK."

Stolen Vehicle Assistance
622 Calls/Month
The unthinkable does happen. OnStar Advisors answer an average of about 622 Stolen Vehicle Assistance calls per month.
Stolen Vehicle Assistance
Once you report your stolen vehicle to OnStar, Advisors can utilize GPS technology to locate your vehicle, alert authorities and, in some cases, remotely slow down your vehicle so thieves won’t get far. With Remote Ignition Block, OnStar can also remotely prevent a thief from restarting your vehicle.
Det. Dave Graham, IL
"OnStar tracks the vehicle for us, so we don’t have to chase it. We follow it in an unmarked car, then when we’re close enough, we tell OnStar to slow it down. It’s beautiful."
