I bought my Spark on August 6th. To date, my on-star is still not activated in my car. They tell me they get an error message. I've taken it to the top of onstar (or so I'm told) and even to my dealer. I did manage to get a call from on-star saying the issue is that my car was not in their database, and that they would get it in there, but that it would take some time. Almost 3 months now and still no on-star. I love this car, but I am NOT impressed with on-star and it's integration with GM. I'm getting the brush off from them I feel.

Anyone else having issues getting their on-star activated in their car?

When last have you checked up with On-Star? Have you tried going to your dealership to see what they can do about it?

Was On-Star suppose to be setup from the time you took delivery of your Spark?

My dealer told me to setup my onstar before I even left the car lot with it, which didn't happen, I was on the on-star phone with them for almost 30 minutes. So then they said they would call me back, never did, so I call them again tried to reactivate it, this went on about 3 or 4 times until I eventually asked for a supervisor. Finally I was frustrated enough to notify my dealership that I bought it at (which is 100 miles away so I can't just run down there). They sent an email to someone in onstar. lo and behold, it prompted a call from them saying it would take a while longer but they were working on it. That was three weeks ago.

Question: How long does it take to make something work that's SUPOSSED to work!? That is my issue. Why are they selling me something that's not working but they claim it to be? I think it's taken WAY too long to get this issue resolved. I think On star does NOT care about my issue. To date they still have not called me back to tell me my car is ready to be activated. You can rest assured, that they will NEVER see a penny from me in the way of a subscription!

I've owned the car 3 months and two days. I started trying to activate it before I even drove it off the lot. I know I called them at least 10 times.

Thats pretty bad you shouldnt have to call them 10 times for something such as that, at least you got through and got that issue resolved.
