OnStar Proactive Alerts Can Predict Vehicle Issues

Unfortunately, we become aware of many vehicle issues after it’s too late. Either they leave us stranded or we are caught unawares and forced to rush to get service. That’s when you find out who your real friends are, when you are on the phone saying, “Hi… I hate to bother you but… Can you pick me up at the repair shop?” All of the sudden, everyone you know and love is just too busy to help.

OnStar proactive alerts - 2016 Chevrolet Malibu

Don’t worry, though—Chevrolet is there for you. The automaker has created a service that can actually make you aware of an issue before it becomes an issue. These alerts are available in 2016 Chevy Silverado, Tahoe, Suburban, Corvette and Equinox vehicles.

So, What Exactly Does It Do?

Chevrolet vehicles are full of high-tech sensors. As these sensors collect information, they constantly analyze the flow of data to look for anomalies. If certain changes in the fuel pump, starter motor and/or 12 volt battery are detected, then the new OnStar Proactive Alerts system will let you know.

At that point, you can make an appointment with a service specialist. They can then have the issue resolved before you experience any inconvenience. Wiesner of Huntsville is ready to take care of your vehicle!
