Music fans shopping for a used car may appreciate this offer from Hyundai. The Korean carmaker is giving a free three-month Sirius XM satellite radio subscription to customers who buy its certified used cars.

Like many automakers, Hyundai has included a free satellite radio subscription on its new cars for a while. But this will be the first time that the company has offered the service to customers purchasing pre-owned cars. XM-equipped radios are available on all Hyundai vehicles.

XM merged with its long time satellite radio rival, Sirius in 2008. Today, the service has over 20.6 million subscribers. The satellite radio service broadcasts over 170 channels of commercial free music, sports, news and other radio programs.

"Sirius XM programming highlights the innovative features that make driving a Hyundai vehicle enjoyable," Hyundai's Certified Pre-Owned manager, Jose Froehlich said in a press release "and we are pleased to offer an introductory three-month XM subscription to even more of our customers."

A three-month Sirius XM subscription costs around $40. It should be enough time for most car buyers to get a taste of the programming and decide if they want to continue with the service.

Hyundai began offering XM radio as standard equipment in 2007. That year is also significant in that it's the oldest model year that qualifies for Hyundai's Certified Pre-Owned program.

In order for a used Hyundai to become a Certified Pre-Owned car, it has to pass a 150-point inspection. Any parts that don't meet the requirements are replaced with new ones.

One of the main benefits of the Hyundai Certified Pre-Owned program isn't the inspection, but the warranty. Hyundai offers the same 10-year, 100,000-mile warranty on its certified used cars as it does on new ones.
