    I thought that's what came with it but 9 months after I bought the car, the Sirius satellite radio no longer works.

    If this is the case, who do I call to get it back on? The dealer? Sirius?

    It's 3 months in the base. I would think it's the same in the advanced. I'm surprised you haven't been getting any mailings. Seems like I get them once a week. Wait for a good offer in the mail or from a telemarketer if you really want it. I think I have seen like $7 a month deals.

    I haven't gotten any! Is there any you can share on here? I could've sworn the dealer said 3 years. Oh well.

    In the Advanced you get 3 years of Sirius data service (like for the map traffic info), but only 3 months of radio service. After the three months, you renew the radio service directly with Sirius if you wish. The three years of data service is tied to your Entune service, and, until recently, I would have said that you renew THAT service with Toyota (and don't even think of mentioning it to Sirius, since it will just confuse them). But there is talk of the Entune service becoming free, so I really don't know how that all works now with the Sirius data service.

    Ah that's what they were talking about. Yes this is all very confusing.

    So if I got this right,

    Sirius: radio for 3 months free
    Sirius Data: Map Traffic (anything else?) 3 years free
    Entune: (mobile phone integration) 3 years free?

    With my Leaf I also got three month's worth of XM. I waited until the mailings started, then chose the one that got me another 6 month's worth of music only for $29.95. They actually tried the trick of making the one year renewal more expensive than the six month, but I don't mind writing another $30 check in six months...

    :)I've had my 2012 Prius since late January. I've received a lot of notices for renewal. After eight months, they cut it off yesterday. Will renew.

    If you ignore the offers, they won't know you're there.

    :)Took me eight months to "weigh and decide". One quick call and I'll be back in business.

    :) Called and renewed for six months, $25. Not a bad deal if you like Sirius/XM, which I do.

    If you gave them your CC, you will be paying full freight in 6 months. That's somewhere near $2oo/yr. They will not be contacting you after this - you'll just see the charge on your CC bill and wonder what happened. So don't forget your renewal date.

    :)Only if you let them. I have multiple radios on a single account.

    I have them send me an invoice with the invoice fee waived. I won't give them a CC#.
