onstar-and-gm-split

Brad and Jennifer. Ben and J.Lo. OnStar and General Motors. It’s always sad when a power couple breaks up and goes their separate ways. But it looks like OnStar is going to keep custody of a mutual friend.

It turns out that Saab, which GM sold to Dutch sports carmaker Spyker Cars NV in February, will continue to install Onstar in U.S.-market Saabs for an undisclosed amount of time. The relationship between Saab and OnStar starts with the 2010 model year, and offers the same service that was available with GM’s U.S. vehicles: one year free, with the option to renew.

It looks like Saab will really benefit from this split – OnStar is a great tool that can help Saab compete with other brands. But you have to wonder… is this just a rebound relationship or will it stand the test of time?
