Purchasing several dozen "New" Ford Vehicles over the past decades an more recently since the advent of Satellite Radio it always confused me why Ford refuses to include the Sirius/XM Module into its entire line of Audio Systems. Cost can't be that much of a factor once the switch is made for the minimal cost of both the component an the antenna. I'm sure that Sirius/XM which usually includes a Free Trial Period 5-6 months would (if necessary) share some of the costs to possibly secure a larger Subscriber Base. If Hyundai with its Base Model Accent an Kia with its Base Model Rio have made Sirius as Standard Equipment for years, why deny Ford Buyers who choose Base Trim Vehicles not to have this added feature as Standard Equipment especially now that they have decided to eliminate the CD Players from their Audio Units. Perhaps its the same stuborness that Ford has had making at least Programable Daytime Running Lights Standard on its entire Fleet as well until the recent slow transition?
