Does anyone have Onstar? My car has the option but I'm not sure it would be worth it.

We don't have it either, but I wish we could have the option to try it before investing in it.

 My Saturn has it too but I have never purchased the service.  I have a friend that has it and she loves it.  She keeps trying to tell me I should get it but I just haven't had the extra money.  She doesn't use the phone portion of it much but she has used it for many other things.  She even once called 911 for a man she saw at an intersection that was having chest pain.  They knew right where she was and they were able to send someone without her giving them any information. 

Isn't this only on GM cars or is it all of them?

 I think it's a GM thing as well. My Yukon has onstar avail. but $18 a month, is a bit steep...... so no we don't subscribe.

A friend of mine has on star....it came in handy when he came home from owrk on day to find his house broken into and his truck gone.  After calling the police and sitting around upset I said "Hey, don't you have On Star?" On Star found the truck and gave the coordinates to the police, it was less than a mile away.....left in a Church Parking Lot

Our last car had it. they give it to you for free when you get the car then you have to pay for it after the first few months. We never used it so we never purchased the subscription.

 I thought so, Saturns were made by GM.
