More Chevy Drivers Requesting OnStar in Spanish

OnStar in Spanish

As the number of Spanish speakers in the United States increases so does the number of Chevy owners requesting OnStar in Spanish. OnStar has had Spanish-speaker advisors for years, but the numbers of Spanish calls coming in is increasing.

In fact, Chevrolet says more than 1,000 Spanish speakers press the OnStar button every day, which is 30% more than in 2013.

“We understand that not all Chevrolet owners speak English fluently or at all…” said Terry Inch, executive director of GM’s Global Connected Customer Experience. “As a result, OnStar has a dedicated team of advisors who can help Spanish-speaking customers keep safe, connected and ready for the road ahead.”

Chevrolet owners can have their OnStar requests automatically routed to the Spanish team if they want. They can either set this up at the dealership with an OnStar welcome call or request the feature themselves at any time by pressing the blue OnStar button in their Chevrolet vehicle.

Every new Chevrolet vehicle includes the OnStar Basic Plan for five years at no charge. The Basic Plan includes great features like Dealer Maintenance Notification, Advanced Diagnostics, and access to the myChevrolet mobile app.

Here at El Dorado Chevrolet, we are here to help any of our customers with any of their OnStar needs.

Try Some of these Car Gifts for Mom on Mother’s Day

Car Gifts for Mom

Mother’s Day is right around the corner. It falls on May 14th this year, so there is still time to prepare a gift for your mom, wife, or other significant woman in your life. If your wife or mother is like most moms, she likely spends a lot of time in the car, driving to and from work, shuttling the kids here and there, and running errands. That is why car gifts for mom are not a bad idea.

Here are a few ideas to get you started.

  • Car detailing – If the mom in your life is constantly toting children from one activity to the next, odds are high, her car is pretty dirty and covered in everything little kids leave behind. Surprise her with a car detailing so it looks and smells like new again.
  • Satellite radio – Give her the gift of listening to whatever music she wants wherever she is without commercials. If her car is equipped with satellite radio already, buy her a subscription.
  • Love notes – Write out a bunch of love notes and leave them hidden away in her car. Some she will find right away, but others might not appear for months. Every note she finds will fill her with joy.
