Hello and welcome to just answer. My name is ***** ***** I will assist you today. OnStar has released a "universal" OnStar mirror that can be added to just about any vehicle. I believe you can purchase it from places like Best Buy and they can do the installation. I believe it runs about $299.00 plus installation.
