DETROIT -- Customers who buy a used vehicle from participating Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and Ram Truck dealerships will be eligible for a free, three-month trial subscription to Sirius XM Radio Inc.'s satellite radio service, Sirius XM said today.
The new offer comes less than a month after Sirius unveiled a similar initiative with participating AutoNation Inc. dealerships. Both programs make the free trial subscription available to consumers who buy a used vehicle that already has a factory-installed satellite radio.
In a statement, Sirius said Chrysler Group will continue to offer customers a subscription to Sirius XM with new-vehicle purchases as well.
The program is available to dealers by request.
Sirius XM's Web site says the company has arrangements with every major automaker and that its serviceis available on more than 800 devices ranging from pre-installed and aftermarket radios in cars, trucks and boats to smartphones and mobile devices.
