20 years ago, buying a Hyundai (and a used one at that) was seen as a sign of failure, as Glengarry Glen Ross alluded to. Now, mercifully, not so much. And to reiterate this bit of pop-culture-driven consumer advice, Hyundai is offering three months of free XM satellite radio on all Hyundais within their Certified Pre-Owned program.

“Hyundai drivers have come to expect high quality, reliability and safety across our entire model lineup,” said Jose Froehlich, manager of Hyundai CPO. “SiriusXM programming highlights the innovative features that make driving a Hyundai vehicle enjoyable.”

Hyundai already offers satellite radios on most of their new cars, and this is only available on cars already equipped from the factory; don’t count them to jam a new head unit in for you. Still, among non-luxury manufacturers Hyundai’s offer is unique: let’s see Alec Baldwin get satellite radio on his $80,000 BMW! Then again, that’s from 1992. Never mind.
