I meant $100 extra a year for Onstar with Turn by Turn vs Onstar without Turn by Turn. You are correct, it is $200/year vs $300/year. To me it's kind of like buying an extra insurance policy.
#5 of 13 Water leak from interior cabin light
Nov 06, 2008 (4:37 pm)
Water is dripping from the cabin light of my 2005 Buick LaCrosse.
this is the cabin light located in the middle of the front seats between the driver and passenger seats. Lots of rain today and the car was parked for about 45 minutes nose pointed downhill during the downpour. Then when I started to drive it, I noticed the dripping. Just 8 good sized drips and then it stopped. When I got home, I opened/closed the sunroof; checked the drain channel , pretty much dry, no debris so I doubt if that is where the water got it. HOWEVER, located directly about the cabin light in question is where the OnStar antenna is mounted atop the car. I dried all the water off around the antenna base then applied some medium to light downward pressure----water bubbled out from under the base. I am thinking that this is where the water is getting in---a faulty seal or something? Anyone else had this problem? This is the second water leak we have had with this vehicle and this one is probably not going to be covered by warranty. I am not happy. Thanks for your help.
#6 of 13 On Star is a Security Risk

I've had On Star on my Cadillac for years and never once used it so I finally cancelled. My free year on my 09 Cobalt will be up in September and I'll cancel. You HAVE to call to cancel OnStar -I suppose so that the people can sell you on the great value of it. On Star can open your car if you leave your keys in and can tell where your car is. That's really great. You have a bunch of strangers in a call center somewhere who can open your car and tell someone where it is. No thanks. I should have realized this from the onset. The only person that this feature would benefit legally would be the repo man. I have one more long trip before September and will see if I can use the hour's worth of phone minutes that I paid for a year ago. Then it is cancellation time. OnStar pushes all the safety features of this money waster such as notification of the police if an air bag goes off or tracing your car if it is stolen. This is what I have a cell phone for and insurance. The big problem is strangers being able to open my car. .

If you focused on telematics (Sync, OnStar, etc) or ignored it completely in your 2011 car-shopping experience, email predmunds.com by Monday, October 17, 2011 and include your daytime contact information.
#11 of 13 05 Lacrosse antenna leak

Concerning the onstar antenna leak; to remove the cabin light, do you first remove the clear lenses or do you grasp the entire housing and pull it down. I want to be sure before I try this. Apparently these antennas were not installed very well if so many leak.

Remove lenses first.
