Yesterday, I started up my Volt to go for a leisure drive. Just after starting it, OnStar started talking to me telling me that this vehicle has basic OnStar coverage. So I wasn't expecting that and immediately turned off the car. Did I hit the OnStar button? No, my hand was nowhere near it.

I already get emails suggesting that I upgrade my OnStar service, but now I am wondering if my car is going to prompt me verbally to upgrade whenever I start my car?

Anyone else get this verbal notification?

It has been reported in the past. From what I remember, you can press the blue button and tell them not to do it again and they will disable that. Others here will correct me if I am wrong.

I think it only happens once or twice, then goes away. That's what happened to me, I never needed to tell OnStar to stop doing it.

My 2014 did that to me a few days ago. "Reminder" that my OnStar was expiring soon.

That might not be Onstar talking to you ... that might be HAL the computer - careful or he will lock you in and not let you out :)

Dave Bowman: I don't know what you're talking about, HAL.
HAL: I know that you and Frank were planning to disconnect me, and I'm afraid that's something I cannot allow to happen.
Dave Bowman: [feigning ignorance] Where the hell did you get that idea, HAL?
HAL: Dave, although you took very thorough precautions in the pod against my hearing you, I could see your lips move.
Dave Bowman: Alright, HAL. I'll go in through the emergency airlock.
HAL: Without your space helmet, Dave? You're going to find that rather difficult.
Dave Bowman: HAL, I won't argue with you anymore! Open the doors!
HAL: Dave, this conversation can serve no purpose anymore. Goodbye.
