#1672 of 1701 End of Sirius trial period
Nov 04, 2012 (1:02 pm)
I purchased an es350 in August that came with a 90 trial of XM.
Does Sirius notify you at the end of the trial or start billing you???

they send you a letter. You have to sign up for something before they can start charging you.
I just got mine from XM for the Acura I bought on 8/31.

I made the mistake of installing xm in my car. I like classical and jazz. I never understood why they played excerpts from classical music-I thought something
was wrong with the unit.
I cancelled and uninstalled the unit from my car. Every month or so they try to get me back by offering the service for some unbelievably low price. Not to my taste.
Ever since they merged they could care less about customers.
#1675 of 1701 Toyota Camry 05 le brake problem
Nov 07, 2012 (6:12 pm)
4cyl w 90,000 mi. Both the brake light and the anti lock lights went on about 3 mos ago. I thought they would evenually disappear-brake fluid level was slightly low-addes fluid.
They have not gone off. I have detected no problems-brakes feel fine. If I take it to have
it looked at I am fearful of a ripoff. Has anyone had this problem? Thanks for any help.
This was the wrong week to give up airplane glue.
#1676 of 1701 05 Toyota Camry le -horrid noise from rear end.
Nov 07, 2012 (6:21 pm)
When driving on smooth road-no problem but drive on a road with a few bumps or slight
uneveness and the noise is deafening. Local garage said they couldn't find anything. The noise
sounds like pieces of metal rattling around in the wheel well. Of course there is a tire there and
the tire changing stuff is "nailed" down. Noise only comes from the rear. Other than this annoying problem all seems well. 90,000 mi. Any help would be appreciated.

Try the Camry Brakes discussion.
Liberty is taking over Sirius XM so more changes are likely coming.
I did a 9 hour road trip today and just listened to my $5 MP3 gizmo through my radio for about 6 hours of that. I did miss trying to find some news stations, it being the aftermath of election day and all. But I wouldn't get my monies worth out of a monthly subscription.

"Sirius XM Radio Inc's grip on drivers is under an increasing threat as the availability of Internet connections in more cars is helping Pandora Media Inc counter some of its rival's big selling points.
Sirius XM, which has its satellite radios in 70 percent of new vehicles, generates the vast majority of its revenue through subscriptions and derives only a fraction from advertising dollars. Streaming service Pandora is just the opposite, collecting most of its revenue from advertising and operating only a nascent subscription business.
But the migration of music audiences to mobile devices threatens to upend a market that Sirius current dominates."
