    This should be good for Sirius XM considering how well Ford has been doing lately. Once customers listen for 3 months (for free) I can see a good percentage keeping service.

    Mercedes Benz had the same thing the last quarter of last year. Calling Sirius to turn it on was a PITA.

    A win-win scenario if you ask me; it moves newer automobiles while giving folks a taste of satellite radio. Sirius versus terrestrial radio is like HD versus digital tv.
