Free Sirius almost over, are you going to renew?

My free Sirius almost over on my WK2, not sure if I will be renewing with them again for my money. Besides Howard I didnt find anything else much intertaining. Mostly poor sound quality, songs repeating all the time, etc. I wish they become free but for now I am not going to renew.
I guess thanks to Jeep paying for year better than any other cars I own. What about you? iPod solution works, what else?

I let mine expire and a couple of months later they sent me a offer for 5 months for $25, couldn't pass that up.

i will renew. i can't live without JamOn. and Sunday road trips with Nascar channel means no hunting for ratio stations. Plus, having a subscription lets you add iPhone and internet streaming for 30 bucks a year. use it all the time!

Not sure the $4/month Sirius Traffic surcharge is worth it, though. It covers only selected urban interstates, and so far, with us at any rate, it has been largely wrong with its warnings.

No... and have already gotten a 12-month offer for $75. Turned it down, though.

I turned mine off on my last trip,it keep rerouting me when there was no traffic jams and adding miles to my trip. I would never renew the traffic service from Sirius it's the worst. As for the music service, I have had that for five years. I will call them right before it expires and they always give me a better deal, then what is advertised.

Re: Free Sirius almost over, are you going to renew?

Rarely listen to sirius, I find nothing of much interest there or not better than those available on free outlets. I've been filling my commute with pod casts, much better quality shows. Base on my last customer service experience; being on hold for over an hour and then lied to, and the thousands of complaints being lodged, I will never sign up. Their traffic is no better or worse than other traffic services, nearly always wrong. So if you are listening to local radio for traffic updates and news, why bother with Sat radio.

If you do sign up, do not opt for the auto renewal. The most consumer complaints seems to be that it its almost impossible to cancel. You call, they transfer you to an retention agent, you are either on hold for an hour or the call gets dropped.... really bad customer service, except for those times you are buying something...

Re: Free Sirius almost over, are you going to renew?

Yeah I will for sure be renew the sirius. ESPN & Howard Stern are worth it for me. Being on the east coast of Canada the radio selection blows so it is a no brainer. Also being able to drive for more than an hour without losing a stations signal is totally worth it.

I have never tried the sirius traffic, I don't even think they have it for Canada. I doubt I would ever use this feature.

Re: Free Sirius almost over, are you going to renew?

I had Sirius on my Evolution, but I was enrolled in the lifetime package so all I had to do was transfer it over. I use my Sirius a lot for mainly sports though, one of my favorite features in my GC

Re: Free Sirius almost over, are you going to renew?

We now have Sirius/XM in both cars and also on the home receiver. We love the commercial free music and the variety. As mentioned above, do not auto-renew or they will charge you full price. Instead, a couple weeks prior to expiration, call and ask them how much the renewal will be. When they give you the full-boat price, tell them you will cancel unless you can get a discount. They will transfer you to a different agent who will most likely give you a deeply discounted price to renew. I am paying about $140/year for two radios and the Jeep is free this year, of course. I don't use the traffic enough to justify renewing it next year but I might consider keeping Travel Link if it's not too expensive.
