I am about to purchase a new car and may need to change because I feel the need now for OnStar. I have had three Honda Accords and are happy with them. I now need something to carry a small scooter for my husband. Not sure if I need a wagon or small SUV but with OnStar. What cars come with OnStar?

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Lori Johnson, Owner and Instructor at Ladies Start Your Engines Dear Rebecca, OnStar is a GM product. If you want it, you need to buy a GM. Here are some others. Although OnStar may be the most popular vehicle telematic service, it's not the only one out there. Other car manufacturers offer similar systems: * Ford RESCU (remote emergency satellite cellular unit) and VEMS (vehicle emergency messaging system) * Volvo OnCall * BMW Assist * Mercedes-Benz TeleAid and Command Japanese automakers Toyota and Honda licensed OnStar technology in previous years, but both companies dropped it in favor of developing their own systems, called G-book and Internavi, respectively. Nissan also has its own telematics service, called CarWings. All three are only available in Japan. (from www.Howstuffworks.com) Hope this helps. Lori Johnson www.ladiesstartyourengines.net
