XM radio for 3 months or 12 months?

I thought the ZL1 came with 12 months but I received a notice yesterday from XM saying it was 3 months? My SS it was 3 months but was under the impression ZL1s received a longer trial.

ZL1 owners was it 3 or 12 for you? (When you respond what year is your car?)

both 2012 and 2013 should get 12 months says right on the window sticker have your dealer fix it mine is 2013 and so was my dads and they both initially came with 3 months but when questioned they changed it. most cars come with 3 and the dealers assume thats the case with these.

I'm dealing with this right now. I told them when I first got the car that it was supposed to be 12 months. They weren't sure what to do. I just called the dealership and said "my trial expired at 3 months, both my window sticker, which i still have, and the chevrolet website says the ZL1 comes with 12 months. Fix it now."

I'm waiting for them to call me back.

You have to have your dealer renew it at the end of 3 month period. Mine has renewed it twice and has one more time to go. Your sticker and sales literature both say 12 months. Don't let them tell you different. It has to be done through the dealer XM seems to know nothing about the "12 month deal."

Been there...done that. I have a 2012 and it's 12 months. As others have stated, don't waste your time calling XM. Go straight to the dealer.

I have been listening to my Ipod for so long I had not checked the XM signal and indeed mine was not activated. A 10 min phone call fixed the problem and it is now activated for 1 year. Thanks for the above post!

Not only does the window sticker state it but so does the Chevrolet website!! 12 months!! Even the pickups are getting 12 months free now!! The ZL1 gets 12 months other Canaro's get 3! I too am also dealing with this!! My trial was to end yesterday, but I haven't been in my car for over a week now so we'll see what happens next time I get in it!! I've called my dealer and XM twice on this now as well!! So what the heck is going on!!

When I first got the warning from XM I called them, they said that I had to contact the dealer. When I got shut off I called the dealer. Dealer said they had nothing to do with it. I called XM again and got the customer service group. They opened a case and restored the service. So we will see when I get shut down again.

I will not contact them again. I will go to a consumer protection group which investigates consumer fraud for free. In this area it's "Call For Action" thru a local TV station.

been dealing with this issue as well. not sure bout the '13's but the 12's do come with 12 months xm as it says on the window sticker and in the book. for some reason dealers are only renewing for 3 months at a time according to the xm rep i spoke with. mine has been turned off twice already but the rep that handled it assured me it wouldnt happen again so we shall see.

To the people who called and got it restored, did you need to have the car on when they restored it? I can't be driving the ZL1 in my current weather, its like 38 here.

You should get XM in the Garage, I do and I also get it in my plane within the hangar.
There is terrestrial transmitters for XM, so it may depend on where you are.
