who ever owned the car before me had the sat radio activated. car was built in Nov of 08. Now the Sat Radio has expired and I am getting just a few stations just for the pacifier affect. Not many to choose from right now. either that or FM , or listen to CD's. I do enjoy the Sirius Radio but at $162 a year, that seems kinda high, no second thought dam high. My son's truck has XM and I only pay $79 for the year on his truck radio. Sirius offered me life time at $399 but right now I can't see paying that with the cut in pay I took when I got the current job. I have heard others stating that they got better offersby bargaining around with the sales rep, but the one I talked too wasnt budging. so right now it looks like the Sirius radio is going to take a leave of absence. We have some good FM stations around but the reception just sucks at times.

There are only a couple Sirius stations that I even care for, so now I listen to FM or mp3s. I agree that the cost is high relative to what you get.

a friend of mine called and actually negotiated with them
on a price, he got it for $64 for the year when he told them
he didnt want to renew his contract.

personally though i cant see paying for radio, my brother has it
and while its nice im not in the car long enough to warrant it.

well the guy I was talking to wasnt going to budge. I do listen to the classic rock stations and a couple of the comedy station, also a few of the sports, but that was about it. FM around here is sporatic at best. one station 96.9 is great(they have a 90,000 watt tower) till you hit the Pickering area and then it goes out for about 3 miles then comes back in. That area is close to Fort Polk. I live about 50-60 miles away from that station.

thank god I have the 6 cd changer. Still looking at getting a my gig radio. that way I can burn cd's straight to the HD. But most of the time I had it on Sirius.

HD is supposed travel farther and much more clear than standard FM
