I'm looking at buying a new Volt (2017 or 2018) and want to figure out what happens after the 5 year free basic Onstar expires. I asked my dealer how much Onstar basic would be after 5 years, he suggested I look at the Onstar web page. Web page only shows Basic as free for 5 years, with no info on charges afterwards. I emailed Onstar, they replied with generic info but no info on being able to continue with the Basic plan after 5 years - the cheapest option they sent me was $200/yr.

All I really want from the Onstar system is the ability to remote start in winter, the plug ins at work are about a 10 min walk from my desk.

Anyone have an idea if it's possible to continue a cheap plan after the basic plan expires?

Currently the basic connectivity for remote start, etc. is free for Volt owners. But there is no telling what the pricing structure will be 5 years in the future. I would count on having to buy something like the basic plan mentioned above. Prices may change and plans may change.
OK, maybe it's just that people are (mostly) still in their free period so Onstar hasn't started offering a low cost basic plan outside of the 5 year period. I guess if they don't get enough people willing to pay for the Protection Plan after Basic expires they'll start offering a paid Basic.
