I had mentioned this in another thread since it came up there too. It's actually all cars by the end of the year 2007, so not necisarily 2007 models, but by the end of the year.rlhammon said:I thought after the "Find the message" campaign GM stated all 2006+ models would have OnStar standard. Seems like the OnStar is an option though on the Solstice with an upgraded radio.
I won't pay for it (getting an upgrade I don't want), but if it was tossed in standard then I'd at least give it a try for the 1 year time intro. Using mapquest or something like that I don't need directions, and I have a cell phone to use so I just don't see the plus to paying for OnStar on top of that.
Should be like cell phones, you make the money on the recurring annual fees so reduce the up front cost and you sell millions morebrentil said:The problem as I've said before is that stupid $695 upfront cost. They should jsut make it a $200 option that covers the first years service but you get the hardware free. Yeah GM can charge an ridiculous $960 for AC, I'm going to pay that cause I have to have it, but now that I've wasted $1000 of my accesories budget for this car OnStar has fallen way off my radar. If I got OnStar with the configuration of options I have then it puts it ouside my budget, and beyond what I can afford.
Yeah I said screw OnStar when I optioned the car last night. I'll wait till I trade in down the road for a Solstice GT and get it free then.mceb said:Should be like cell phones, you make the money on the recurring annual fees so reduce the up front cost and you sell millions more
Guess it doesn't matter because in a year or two it will be standard on all cars/trucks.
