Not a chance I'll get a car w monthly fees. I'd sooner look for a car that includes the features I want, since I already paid for it. Though, unfortunately, there will be enough people willing to pay "just a little bit", that this will undoubtedly grow over time. Can't wait till I have to pay $0.25 every time I want to roll down my window. Iirc, bmw was trying to charge a monthly fee for heated seats..
BMW was also trying to charge a fee of wireless Apple CarPlay until enough customer complained so they made it free for 20 years or sometime silly like that.

If the car connects to my wifi, why would I pay a monthly fee? I get if I want it to remote start out in a desert somewhere, but when it's at home and on my own wifi? Come on GM.
Whew! I got a newer phone to be able to use the Chevy app .. and was worried I would lose the remote start / charging status as I don't intend to pay for OnStar .. but as long as the car is connected to my home wi-fi (which it is) I'm still good?

I know at home I can start it with the fob, just a little more convenient from the phone.

My chevy app works really good so far. It's not hit or miss when I send commands. But I believe that it might not work for others the same way it's been working for me.
If it starts giving me problems that they can't fix I'll just cancel it. That's the beauty of it for me.

Great deal. I got them down to $9.59 a month, but honestly, I didn't think to try to get them to go lower. I use the app to start my car daily due to where I'm parked vs where I work. So for me, totally worth it. Those who are never far from their car, it might seem like a ripoff even at $86 a year, but those folks fail to see that there could be legitimate reasons to need it and assume that we're all time them. And you know what they say about people who assume.... 😉

I agree. The Energy Assist function can be flaky at times but it calculates distances and charging times perfectly when it works.

Where did you get that information?
found this just now with a Google search.
When your revenue stream mostly relies on customers forgetting to cancel a useless/outdated service, that means it's a shitty business. There are still people who pay for AOL internet, I know because one of them is a nearly 80 year old family member (who even after explaining they are wasting money) still won't get rid of it. They simply don't know better things exist.

The handful of times I've interacted with OnStar people - the only thing they care about is getting your credit card number. They didn't care what my problem was or how to fix it, but tried to make it seem like all could be solved if they just had my CC number on file. "Oh sir, we can totally help and make sure your family is okay in case pirates attack you and cause a rollover, we just need to have a CC on file"

I'm fine with you hating OnStar, and believing it's a shitty business. It makes no difference to me.

I was just wondering where you got the information that it "will continue to lose money and circle the drain".
