Chevy has announced at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas that some of its 2016 models will have on-board sensors that can potentially predict problems before they're detectable by owners.
Sensors will monitor the starter motor, battery, and fuel pump, and will send information to OnStar, which will then use "proprietary algorithms" to determine if something is amiss. Owners will be notified by text, email, in-car warnings, or the OnStar app if there is a problem.
The first Chevy vehicles to receive the system will be the 2016 model-year versions of the Equinox, Corvette, Tahoe and Suburban, and Silverado and Silverado HD pickups. More nameplates are to follow as well.
