OnStar has played eye-in-the-sky for police chasing down stolen GM vehicles about 58,000 times since the system was introduced. But last week it helped do something it's never done before — it rescued a woman's Chrysler. Yup, carjackers who don't read Jalopnik are going to be so confused.
The standalone OnStar FMV system — basically a replacement rearview mirror tucked full of GPS and communications gear — went on sale for non-GM consumers this year. So it was only a matter of time before they helped save a non-GM car. And oh, you better believe GM's touting the hell out of it.
