If Your OnStar Device Tracks Your Driving History Without Your Permission, You Might Be Eligible For Compensation.

Is Your Car Spying on You and Making Your Insurance Cost More?

Many drivers of cars made by General Motors, Ford, Honda, and other popular brands notice that their car insurance prices are increasing.

Drivers with GM's OnStar Smart Driver system have found that the software collects details about their driving without their permission, increasing their insurance bills significantly.

These reports include everything about their driving history, from when they started and ended trips to how fast they were going and even how hard they braked or accelerated. Most didn't even know their driving data was being sent to the insurance company.

All this info was gathered by OnStar Smart Driver, a GM service that monitors your driving habits. This service is supposed to help you be a better, safer driver by giving you tips and even badges for good driving habits.

In another instance of driving history being shared by OnStar Smart Driver without driver permission, a person who drives a Cadillac in Florida was denied car insurance by seven companies due to a similar report from LexisNexis, saying it showed him braking and accelerating too hard, and even speeding. He's thinking of suing GM and selling his Cadillac for good.

But it's not just GM cars doing this–other car brands that collect data without telling drivers and then sell it to companies like LexisNexis include:

  • Subaru
  • Mitsubishi
  • Honda
  • Kia
  • Hyundai

Some companies, like Ford, don't send this info without permission. You have to agree on the car's screen before they share your driving habits with insurance companies. Others, like Honda, require you to accept long terms and conditions.

GM defends its OnStar Smart Driver, saying it's optional for customers. They say you must agree thrice before any data is shared with insurance companies, but you can opt-out anytime.

LexisNexis, the company gathering all this data, says they use it to help insurance companies offer more personalized coverage.

Consumers whose OnStar device tracks their driving history without permission might be eligible for compensation, starting with a free, private case review.
