Chevrolet Offers Three Months of Free OnStar® Coverage this Winter

OnStar

More than 19 million Chevrolet customers are eligible to receive up to three months of complimentary OnStar® coverage starting Jan. 9. The offer provides drivers with access to essential services like Automatic Crash Response, Roadside Assistance, Emergency Services, and Crisis Assist, all of which provides extra confidence when driving in the snow.

“These services can help Chevy customers drive with confidence during some of the most dangerous times to be on the road,” said Paul Edwards, U.S. vice president of Chevrolet Marketing. “With OnStar, we’re bringing peace of mind to owners, knowing that an advisor is ready to help.”

OnStar® is accessible through the Chevrolet touchscreen or phone apps. To receive your free three months, you need only press the blue OnStar® button in your vehicle and tell the advisor that you’d like the complimentary OnStar® Safety & Security offer. You’ll get one month regardless and two additional months if you put a credit card on file for monthly renewal.   

The offer is good through Jan. 23 and any eligible and properly equipped Chevrolet 2006 or newer qualifies. If you have any more questions about the OnStar® Safety & Security, OnStar® services, or the latest Chevrolet vehicles, stop into Bill Roberts Chevrolet Buick.

OnStar Proactive Alerts Help Drivers Avoid Potential Repairs

One of the stressful parts of owning a car is keeping up with the maintenance. Even if you come in for regular service, there’s always the chance that an unpredictable issue might come up.

But are all issues unpredictable? Not according to Chevrolet, who introduced OnStar Proactive Alerts, the industry’s first predictive technology that allows your vehicle to warn you about potential maintenance needs before they even occur.

OnStar Proactive AlertsOnStar Proactive Alerts is inspired by the technology used on the Boeing 787, which sends in-flight messages to ground crews about parts that need inspection before the plane arrives. When Chevrolet owners opt-in to the service after buying a car at Bill Roberts Chevrolet, the system will continually monitor the health of the vehicle’s fuel pump, 12-volt battery, and starter motor. If any anomalies are detected, OnStar will notify the driver to take their vehicle in for service. This will help owners catch otherwise hard-to-detect problems and save on repairs.

“With Proactive Alerts, we now can offer customers even greater peace-of-mind by taking the guesswork out of when to service their vehicle,” said Steve Holland, GM chief technologist for Vehicle Health Management.
