Buick’s Smart Driving Secret

When you get behind the wheel of a Buick, you’ll have tons of smart technology on your hands. That’s because starting with the 2015 model year, Buick vehicles are available with an OnStar subscription plan that helps you with smart driving.

Part of OnStar’s subscription plan includes a Smart Driver system that makes you and Buick quite the intelligent team. While you drive, OnStar will track your driving habits so that you can see how your drive on the road. It’s hard to monitor yourself while you’re driving, which is why OnStar does it for you! Some of the information that OnStar smart driving gives you are the total number of hard braking/hard acceleration occurrences, your average mpg, high-speed driving percentage, and more.

Not only will be safer with these features from OnStar, but you’ll also save money. When you have OnStar Smart Driver and access to your OnStar Smart Driver Score, you can get discounts off of your car insurance, up to 30% off of your regular rate. Basically, you’re losing nothing! You have a chance to improve your driving skills all while getting lower rates on your insurance.
