Starting today, General Motors is holding a car giveaway sweepstakes through its OnStar division. The contest will award 10 lucky OnStar users a brand new Chevrolet, Cadillac, Buick or GMC of their choosing. To enter, contestants need only to push their vehicle's OnStar button.

According to GM, it's not necessary for the contestants to be OnStar subscribers to enter – all you need is an OnStar-equppied vehicle and you're ready to go. The idea here is that non-subscribing customers enter the contest and realize the many benefits of having OnStar.

The winners of the contest will be allowed to pick any General Motors product as their prize – everything from the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 or Cadillac CTS-V to the Buick Regal or GMC Canyon. (Pick the CTS-V Sport Wagon. You'll thank us later.) The only vehicle off limits is the illustrious Chevrolet Volt. GM's contest is open for entries until May 31. Hit the jump for GM's official press release.

OnStar launches 'Push On' Sweepstakes Campaign
10 people to win choice of Chevrolet, Buick, GMC or Cadillac vehicle


DETROIT – OnStar is reminding drivers just how easy it is to stay safely connected while on the road with its Push On sweepstakes. In a national campaign that launches today, 10 people will win a new OnStar-equipped Chevrolet, Buick, GMC or Cadillac vehicle of their choice.

Anyone with a digital OnStar-equipped vehicle -- regardless of whether they are a current OnStar subscriber -- can enter to win by pressing the blue OnStar button in their vehicle now through May 31.*

"More than 6 million customers currently take advantage of OnStar's advanced technology while they're on the road," said Terry Inch, director of subscriber services. "Yet there are many more drivers out there who may not realize all the award-winning services OnStar offers, like having access to a live advisor at the push of a button or getting monthly emails with key information specific to their vehicle that can help them save money."

From a Corvette ZR1 to a Buick Regal or anything in between, sweepstakes winners can select any Chevrolet, Buick, GMC or Cadillac vehicle with any combination of factory-installed options. The only exception is the limited-production Chevrolet Volt electric car with extended-range capability.

OnStar is perhaps best known for its Automatic Crash Response feature which, in the event of a collision, uses sensors built into the vehicle to automatically alert an OnStar Advisor. The advisor can then immediately connect into the vehicle to see if help is needed. Even if the occupant is hurt and can't respond, the advisor knows the vehicle's exact location through GPS technology and can direct emergency responders to the scene.

Over the past 15 years, OnStar Advisors have answered 346 million button pushes, responded to more than 160,000 vehicle crashes, unlocked more than 5 million doors remotely, provided 2.6 million subscribers with roadside assistance and routed customers' turn by turn to their destination more than 70 million times.

"The 'Push On' sweepstakes is our way to remind drivers with OnStar in their vehicles, just how powerful the system is, yet so easy to use," said Sam Mancuso, OnStar chief marketing officer. "Just push a button and you're connected."

      can you enter without being neither an onstar subscriber nor having a vehicle equipped with onstar? Can such a person enter enter the sweepstakes by using the alternative entry method (mail)?

          You aren't left out in the cold, unless by your own ignorance. With all due respect, read the directions and figure out how to enter without an onstar.

      Ughhmmm. Contrary to this article, the contest was said to be open to all that want to enter the contest. Is this stipulation for certain??? That is a factor that would be nice to know before I foreward expendetures for entering via mail-in entry, which is another option of entering the sweepstakes, before finding out I am just waisting my time.

      Presently have a Cad CTS; however we travel a lot and cld use a newer version. Thanks

      I won a Cadillac CTS when ONstar and GM did the give-away in 2004. I expected a strip down version but what I got was a car with the works on it!!!! It was a beauty and I loved it, unfortunately I hit a deer on my way to work and totaled it. The car probably saved my life because I was driving very fast. It broke my heart to lose it, it was a beauty! Just wanted to let those doubters of the games authenticity know it really can happen to you, it did to me.

      WHAT A COME ALONG!! REALLY TAKING ADVANTAGE OF POOR PEOPLE IN HARD TIMES AND NOT EVEN GIVING UP A WEB SITE TO EVEN ENTER THE CONTEST! I THINK IT'S PRETTY BAD PR. I HAVE BEEN A GM BUYER FOR QUITE A FEW YEARS NOW AND I'M HAVING DIFFERNT THOUGHTS OF BUYING GM PRODUCTS IN THE FUTURE!

      We have a 2002 YUKON. It has 189750 miles on it. It has been a great vehicle, no problems and we love it. We bought it new, and would buy another! Only problem is we are no longer an onstar subscriber and have been pressing the onstar button since the first day of the contest and all we get is " not available". Not a good selling point, when it states in your rules "you do not have to be a subscriber to enter- just press onstar!" So how can I enter? We would sure love a new vehicle. Carole Bode

        @Carole Bode
        Go to Onstar.com and read the rules under "How to Enter." It explains that you can enter by mail, up to three entries per person if you enter by mail, and only one per vehicle if you press the button, so your chances actually triple by entering via mail.
