OnStar Offers Diagnostic Email

Originally Published in Trailer Life Magazine

General Motors has a new way to enhance the vehicle ownership experience through a simple
monthly email. Called OnStar Vehicle Diagnostics, this GM-exclusive service runs diagnostic
checks from the vehicle’s four key operating systems, collects valuable maintenance
information and sends a personalized email directly to the owner. To date, more than one
million GM vehicle owners have signed up for OnStar Vehicle Diagnostics, which is available
to eligible OnStar subscribers as part of their basic service. The report also now alerts
the owner if there is an outstanding recall notice that needs attention. More service
enhancements, such as including local fuel-station information for E85 Flex Fuel compatible
vehicles, are under development and will be rolled out over the next several months. OnStar
Vehicle Diagnostics also makes it easy for owners to follow the GM Oil-Life System, which
feeds data into the monthly diagnostics report and monitors key engine operating conditions
to determine when the oil needs to be changed. The service can be activated on most 2004
model-year or newer OnStar-equipped GM vehicles that have GM’s Oil-Life System.
