No. OnStar or Hydramatic could advertise that GM and other companies use their products, but General Motors should not advertise that GM supply these items. GM is a competitor to these vehicle manufacturers and a supplier of parts...and the two should not be confused in their marketing. If GM started to advertise that BMW used the same GM transmissions as Cadillac, then BMW will find another supplier and GM will be out a customer.Doesn't GM own On-Star?
If that is the case, then I hope it doesn't turn into a quiet business deal like the BMW transmission issue. GM fans should let everyone know that BMW uses Cadillac transmissions.
WHAT?!?!? ONSTAR ON DODGES? I CAN'T BREATH...
It's true! I googled it and came up with this link:
This will give Dodge a tremendous advantage, not on GM, but on the imports and Ford. I know that GM has been benefiting from the buyers going with their products even when they might have liked another brand simply because it had Onstar. I know I was tempted to go with the General for that reason when I got the truck, but finally elected not to. I was worried about Dodge and REALLY worried about Ford at one time but I think that it is loud and clear that these companies are moving in the right direction!
Funny thing is Chrysler will start using Hughes Telematics on all cars in 2009. Hughes as everyone knows used to be owned by GM, and in fact greatly contributed to the founding of OnStar.Dodge isn't using OnStar. That image has been on the OnStar page for over a year.
