MrsSec19 and I bought a used car last night. A 2009 Hyundai Elantra. It has XM radio in it, and it's active. I asked the dealer about it, and he didn't really know any details on it.

Does anyone have experience on this subject, or can anyone tell me how long I might keep XM until they track me down? A cursory Google search didn't yield anything. I'm not really interested in paying for it, but for free I'm sure we can find something to listen to while driving.

Well, worst case works until it doesn't. You're not associated with the account the radio is. They're not going to "come after you". Even if they had a beef, they don't know who has that radio.

Two logical scenarios...The previous owner paid in advance on a subscription fee that will carry on unabated until they notice and stop paying...or, they transfer their account to their shiny new radio and deactivate their former/your current receiver.

One possible caveat is that XM was offering lifetime subscriptions for one flat rate for awhile. You could be golden in that scenario if they don't change their account again.

We let our XM subscription lapse last year. I think we had it for four extra months while they tried to collect a monthly fee. In the end they just turned it off.

Holy fuck shit motherfucker shit. Read comics. Fuck shit shit fuck shit I sold out when I did my job. Fuck fuck fuck shit fuck. Sorry had to do it....

Mt mom bought a car recently and they gave her XM radio for free for six months, to get her hooked. Which, of course, she now is and now has to pay for it. Why you have it I have no idea but if you don't want to pay for it be wary of finding those "super awesome stations that you can't live without!"

I know you're a feminist and I think that's adorable, but this is grown-up time and I'm the man.

So on Thursday, Mrs. Sec19 informed me that XM was no longer working. By now, we are hooked on it.

Does anyone have any insight on renewal discounts? I've read online reports of fairly substantial ones, and would love to hear if anyone has had any luck with $77/year deals (or better).
