There’s something magical about exploring the world around you. Whether it’s journeying to the scenic backcountry, venturing into the city or just taking a weekend road trip, new roads can bring new experiences and adventures.

Of course, there’s always a chance something unexpected will happen. But if you get stranded during your journey, OnStar can help you get back on the road. The OnStar Safety & Security Plan*3 includes Roadside Assistance, which means someone can be there to help when you need it — so you don’t have to be alone.

Punctual Help for Punctured Tires

A nail in the road can ruin your day, especially if you’ve misplaced the spare. Get your journey back on track by pushing your blue OnStar button and asking your OnStar Advisor for help. They’ll be happy to locate someone to change the tire and offer other assistance if you need it.

Fuel for the Road Ahead

If your fuel gauge shows you’re running low and you’re not sure you’ll make it to the next gas station, don’t worry. Just let an OnStar Advisor know, and they can tell you how far it is to the next gas station and even give you directions. And, if it’s too late for that, an Advisor can have a local service provider bring you some gas to get you back on the road.

It Happens to the Best of Us

Leaving the lights on and coming back to a dead battery is an unfortunate rite of passage for, well, most drivers. Thankfully, it’s easy to find the nearest service provider, even when you can’t push the blue button. Just call our toll-free number, 1 888 466-7827, and request Roadside Assistance to get help.

Tow Story

If you’re in need of a tow, it doesn’t have to be an elaborate ordeal. Reach up and push the blue OnStar button, and enjoy the lift to the nearest dealership to get the high-quality service and care you deserve.

Drive with More Confidence

Traveling to new territory can be exhilarating — but having a breakdown ruins the fun. Thankfully, an OnStar Advisor is available on the other end of that blue button, ready to help you get back on the road and back on with your life as soon as possible.

What really matters is that you feel confident pushing either button to take advantage of your eligible, active OnStar plan. If you’re in an emergency situation or feel like you’re in danger, push the red Emergency button. If you’re in a non-emergency situation, use the blue OnStar button. No matter the scenario, OnStar Advisors love to help, and they can connect you with the assistance you need.
