OnStar Stolen Vehicle Slowdown

This time next year, you may find yourself listening to NWA or Ice Cube and hearing something about a “hot jack move”. Whatever you do, don’t pull a “hot jack move” on a GM vehicle, because the company is improving its OnStar service vastly. 2009 vehicles with OnStar will come with a new feature called Stolen Vehicle Slowdown, which will remotely slow down a vehicle once its been reported stolen and located via a GPS receiver.

So again, let’s review:
-“Hot jack move” in 2007: OK
-“Hot jack move” in 2008: Not OK

Glad we’re clear on things. Now go back to sippin’ your gin and juice.
