    I was wondering what on earth to give my (now husband) for a Christmas gift in 2007 and my BFF in TX recommended XM radio, so I bought that for him for his pickup truck. It turned out, that was THE best gift ever for him. I got the type that can be taken in/out of the vehicle, not that we ever really did that. Then a couple of years ago when I bought my Buick, it had XM built in, so I ordered it for my vehicle. It was up for renewal next month and I told my husband maybe I'd not renew, and he said to keep it, so I did. I mostly listen to the 50-60's music.

    We have had ours for several years. Now have it in both vehicles. It's the best for country music and classic rock.

    Love XM/Sirrus in both of our vehicles ! Sometimes if the satellite is out of range or you are out of range of the satellite it will fade. For example: underpasses,parking garages etc as the signal cannot get through.

    My hubs will listen to Elvis, or if something political is going on- one of those channels. I usually listen to country or NPR music radio ..

    We have Sirius radio in both trucks. We love it! My husband's radio can be taken out of his truck and placed in a receiver and played anywhere.

    We pay about $30.00 a month for both subscriptions.

    I have Pandora and I love it. The cost works out to less than $3.00 a month and I can have it at home off of my computer or on head phones anywhere in the house off of my tablet. I like lots of kinds of music and can program stations so to have the type of music I want each day. Sometimes Opera, and sometimes Celtic or maybe just some really good jazz. I know you can get it for your car if you are getting other satellite stations.

I've only noticed one drawback, the radio fades out in certain areas of town. Thanks for your input.
    When it comes time to renew, cancel it and they will negotiate a better price for you. Also, there are different plans
    available for different prices.

    I have had Serius and enjoyed it everyday as I was traveling to work. Now that I have retired I cancelled my service.
    It is good to have if you are on the go everyday.

    Bought a KIA Sorrento --2011 Had Sirius XM for 3 months b ought in Ontario Canada . Didn't renew then in Oct local radio started playing Christmas music while I was in Florida for winter. I walked into the house and said that we are ordering Sirius XM again. What a problem because car was in Fl but had to buy through Canada --Naturally, it cost more in Canada but we got it anyway. I really enjoy it even for short times if you can afford it. Don't like that they automatically renew the contract and we didn't know that until we found our bank account with the money taken out.
    NEVER thought the day would come that I would be glad to pay for RADIO service.

    I use my CD player and listen to audio books. That's it!! Oh, and the CDs are free from the library. I actually started doing this when all these satellite radios were not available and I got tired of fading radio stations as I drove along.

    I love my Bluegrass station. My son purchased a receiver for my mini van a few years ago, but the monthly cost for so out of hand, I let it expire. My "new" (new to me) car came with lifetime subscription to Sirius radio. Only basic package, but since I don't pay for it, the stations I have are just what I need.

    I have had it in my car for 3 years now, I can't imagine being without it. I only do town driving for the most part, so local radio would be fine, but I have become addicted to the 60's on 6. Reliving my childhood I guess!

    We have had Sirius in out last three cars and love it, especially when travelling.
    There are a lot of areas when you travel that you just can't get anything on the
    radio. We always renew it too.
    so many quilts to make, so little time.

    I loved it for book radio. Heard some great books. They did away with it. Now I listen to radio classics. However, won't renew in the future. I would rather spend the money on quilting supplies.

    I have a 2012 Kia Soul that also came with satellite radio. I love it. I have had no trouble with it. Reception is fine whether I am driving in the city or on rural roads.

    Just this week, we renewed for a year at a little over $11/mon. for music only. No talk radio. I think we get about 80 stations. Love it.

    We just bought a new Ford Fusion. We have Sirius radio in it because it is free for a few months. My Escape that we bought last year had Sirius free for 6 months. We didn't renew because Sirius discontinued MLB. We like to listen to the Royals baseball games. We have a USB port in the console. We load our favorite music onto a flash drive and play mp3's. We get to choose what we want to hear and there are no commercials.

    I have it and I listen to 50's music whenever I am in my vehicle. I bought a lifetime subscription,
    If you wouldn't write it and sign it, don't say it.

    I love my Sirius -it does stop in the garage because it's not getting a signal. Driving in my area there is no fading. I guess the only thing I kinda miss is the weather, if some storm is heading in I would like to know about it.

    I have it but don't use it. I renewed once after the trial period but for me its not worth it. When I'm in my local area I listen to local channels to know what's happening. My car has a hard drive so I've put all of my CDs on it so when I'm in an area with poor reception I put it on. The traffic update to me isn't worth it because it only shows what's been reported so most of the time when I was stuck in traffic it didn't show what was going on. I could pull up the 5 day forcast but I can do that on my cell phone. Without it I can still do the POI and use the GPS so for me it was a waste of money.

    Check your Fusion, I have the 2010 and it has a hard drive where I loaded all of my CD's in it and can access it anytime and my CD's stay at home. I love that about it. If I'm waiting in the car for something and my car is in park I can also watch TV, my grandkids love that.
