GM Vehicles That Offer Rear Seat Reminder Feature

General Motors continues to expand the availability of its rear seat reminder technology. I raved about this system when I had it in the 2017 GMC Acadia. While it is not a “fix all” for the issue of dumb parents, it will surely help.

The rear seat reminder system doesn’t detect objects in the back seat. Rather it monitors the vehicle’s rear doors and whether they’ve been opened and closed up to 10 minutes prior to the vehicle being started or when the vehicle is running.

If it detects either of those scenarios occurring, the system will sound the alarm – in this case five chimes – plus display a warning message to “look in rear seat” when the vehicle is turned off.

Here is a list of current GM vehicles that offer the technology introduced in 2017. Not all 2019 model year vehicle information is available yet so check with your Car Pro Certified Dealer about specific GM models not on this list.
