2011 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport SE: I Can't Live Without...
March 16, 2011
The free 3-months Sirius subscription on our Outlander Sport ran out recently so I notified keeper of the keys Mike Schmidt, who said he'd renew our subscription. Without the soothing sounds of my decades or classic rock stations coming through the speakers, it was rougher than normal driving in L.A.'s notorious traffic last night. Yep, nearly 1.5 hours to go 21 miles without my iPod nor satellite radio. I found the commercials, yammering DJs and "you're screwed" traffic reports of standard radio so annoying I just shut it off.
When satellite radio first debuted back in the '90s, I remember thinking "Why would anyone pay anything just for more (albeit commercial-free) radio stations?" Now there's not a doubt in my mind that I'd opt for it -- well worth the 13 bucks a month for me.
What say y'all?
