Don't let these crooks get their hooks into you. Especially, DO NOT give them your credit card number. I was using invoice billing and paying by check, and they still tried to get more money from me by not removing my 2013 Leaf from their billing system after I called to let them know I'd turned it in. (I know this because knowing them, I called again this evening to make sure it was removed - it wasn't.) I'm going to use the free 3 month trial, block emails from them, and then in August I'll switch to Android Auto.

Om my 2014 B the shutdown never occurred. I had XM until it was totaled. on my current B I had to pay. I just think it is luck of the draw.

I have head of Leaf's that have extended XM. I guess it just depends on how lucky you are.

I still hate the people behind Sirius-XM (and the DJ Richard Blade!), but the channels have improved. The Leaf's new tuning knob and the grouping of stations within what the company considers a genre work well together. The little station icons are too hard to read, though.

Nice! I hate the way XM sounds in the LEAF. But it sounds fine in the Volt, and that's what we'll be driving over Thanksgiving. :D

Do mean shrill? To me XM sounds so shrill(no bass) I hardly care to listen to it :(
So are you saying the poor sound isn't inherent to XM, I mean if it sounds better in your Volt it sounds like it may just be Nissan's implementation of it?

Yes, shrill would be a good way to put it.

And, yes, I think it's just the way it works in Nissan vehicels (or maybe only the LEAF?).

With the Bose system adjusted for a little extra bass SXM sounds fine. Not "audiophile quality," but "car stereo quality." I can see where the non-Bose-equipped cars would sound tinny.
