Change My Oil Dave

USA Today: In its quest to make cars more like futuristic computer Hal 9000, OnStar, General Motors’ in-car telecommunications system, now will give owners e-mail updates from their vehicles reporting problems or reminding about maintenance needs, officials said Tuesday.
The service will tell car owners how long they have until they need to change the oil, whether the air bags are working, how the anti-lock braking system is operating and when the car is due for maintenance. It detects whether a car needs an oil change through a computer system that judges how the engine is working.
It will work on any OnStar-equipped vehicle from the 2004 model year on.
