Robocalls: New Threat To OnStar? What To Do If You Get One Page 2

Follow John

General Motors' OnStar

What should you do?

If you get a robocall through an OnStar-equipped car, here are three things you should do:

(1) If it's safe, or you're traveling with someone else, write down the name of the company that called and the number it asks you to call.

(2) Call the OnStar operator as soon as possible by pressing the blue button, ask him or her to open a complaint over a possible robocall, and provide the information.

(3) Before you hang up, ask the operator to credit your account for the minutes you spent on the call--so you don't lose any minutes you paid for.

In other OnStar news, the service issued a press release yesterday citing all the helpful ways it can help protect you from the zombie apocalypse.

  1. With a recent study citing anger as the chief or leading reason for car accidents, why would you have to put up with yet ANOTHER reason to get angry behind the wheel? And have the minutes SUBTRACTED from those you've prepaid:((
