Vauxhall OnStar

Vauxhall OnStar

Your Personal Connectivity and Service Assistant

Once the exclusive reserve of the limousine, a personal service assistant will be available from mid-2015 right across the Vauxhall range. That’s a European first in this segment. Vauxhall OnStar is our pioneering, people-friendly technology that puts you in touch with an individual, not a machine.


The one-of-a-kind system connects you to a trained advisor – or, if you have an accident, automatically calls for help – 24/7, 365 days a year. It also gives you in-car access to a host of services, from roadside assistance and vehicle diagnostics to an integrated wi-fi hotspot. You don’t have to be in your car to access Vauxhall OnStar.


You can call our Service Centre from any phone, or use our Vauxhall OnStar smartphone app. Your driving experience has never been easier, safer or smarter.
