Why do people cancel Onstar?

Onstar has been providing a range of services for drivers and their vehicles for more than 25 years now and is a subsidiary of GM. Their technology continues to improve in many countries around the world, with many areas of society using their services. Despite the high number of customers they have, not everyone’s happy, which has led to many deciding to cancel their Onstar service and move on.

One of the most cited reasons why people cancel Onstar is because they no longer feel they’re getting value for money. Whether they’ve never actually needed to use any of the vehicular services Onstar offers, or when they have they haven’t felt like it’s worth it – whatever the case when a service no longer provides value for money, it’s time to cut it and move on to something better.

Another reason people cancel is that they never wanted it in the first place. Onstar comes pre-fitted in many new vehicles, as well as a lot of second-hand vehicles and leased cars as well. Just because you want a specific vehicle, doesn’t mean you want all the add-on bloatware as well, which some may think Onstar to be.

Final thoughts

Onstar is one of the leading providers in a range of automobile services assisting drivers with safety, security, and notifying first responders. Unfortunately, it’s not for everyone.

Follow the steps above and you’ll be able to cancel Onstar today in no time.
