I didn't even realize that SiriusXM was only available on the Lariat, that is kind of idiotic. Your Ford salesman lied to you. Adding anything aftermarket would not automatically void the warranty. In order for it to void the warranty Ford would have to PROVE that the aftermarket product (SiriusXM) caused any warranty related issues. There are laws to protect consumers and they can't just void the warranty because you install aftermarket equipment. I can't see how having SiriusXM installed could possible cause any issues. People have aftermarket things added to their new vehicles all the time and the warranty is not voided. Aftermarket remote start is a popular example.WHY is Sirius radio ONLY offered in the most expensive pacage? One cannot have Sirius according the the BUILD options unless they are ordering the Mav-Lariat with Luxury pkg! This definitely seems discriminatory. Many automakers offer Sirius as an option even in their lower end models.
A Ford salesman told me I cannot buy a Sirius radio and have it installed at a Ford dealership or it would completely void my warranty for anything under the hood/engine related. I cannot understand the logic here…..can anyone explain as to why this was told to me? I bet SiriusXM would like to know about this; especially since Ford is most likely going to sell thousands of these trucks. I’m thinking maybe I should wait for the 2023 models to see if they have changed their minds about this.
