a pre-owned vehicle with factory-installed satellite radio from participating
Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and Ram Truck dealerships. The program applies to all
used vehicles sold by the dealers regardless of the vehicle's brand.

broadcaster announced that participating Nissan and Infiniti dealers would
offer a free three-month trial subscription to consumers who buy any used
vehicle from the dealers' lots, not just Nissan or Infiniti vehicles.
