Default What is the factory install "Deal"

I’m a new and very happy Starmate user in a 7 yr old Maxama.

What exactly is the "Incentive" given by dealers to install or activate Sirius??

Free radio?
Free sub?

I don't think that there is an incentive gievn by the dealers, I do think that Chrysler, Jeep and Dodge factory Sirius installs include the first year of service.

I know that there is no incentive through Ford. I just bought 2 new Ford 3 weeks ago.

The factory installed tuner (to work through my HU) would have cost me $600. I chose not to at that time. I have seen the Ford tuners online for $250. Then you can install it yourself.

What type of car are you looking at?

If you're thinking of getting a factory-installed Sirius radio in another Nissan, the only incentive is going to be that Sirius will give you a 3-month free trial before requiring a subscription.

You mean that the dealers collect from Sirius and also get us to buy a high end system. And all we get is three month trial.

Anything Ford from the factory from here forward will be 195.00 with a 6 month sub. That starts with the F150/Mark LT in August (06 MY) then the 06 Explorer/Mountaineer with more to follow in succession. Lets be clear here though. The incentives (or lack there of) at the OEM level has little to de with Sirius and the same goes for the costs. The OEM's have their suppliers manufacturer the equipment and sell it for what they want. Dailmler Chrysler in the Dodge, Jeep and Chrysler line up are the industry leaders by far 199.00 with a 1 year sub included. XM isn't that good through thier GM partners.

Good time to be buying a Chrysler.... employee pricing plus has most of my dealers slammed right now. The industry needed to step up and create sales opportunities and they did.

How long is that discount expected to last, I plan on buying in 3-6 months or so, even if it doesn't I could go to my old dealership and get a discount for myself.

Employee Pricing ends at the end of the month, it is only on 05's.

However other companies have extended their employee pricing.
