Hello


I'm an new member as an a new owner of an 2011 Cruze Lt to replace my 02 Hyundai Sonata (good car, just needed something better on gas and something that I did not have to put oil in every time I turned around). I don't post much, just wanted to say Hello

It appears XM might have been standard on 2011 Canada CRUZE units but some of the U.S. 2011's do not sport XM. You absolutely could go with an aftermarket unit on ebay although their might be some limitations. Do you have OnStar available?

yes I do have on star. i don't want to go aftermarket, I was wondering if I could replace my unit with an oem one with xm

Those exact questions I just reviewed from Google which led back to Cruze Talk. It seems you can't do what you want to do. Try our custom search box at the top right of this page for really good results!

A few people have been so bold as to go from the "basic" radio to the "MyLink" system. You have to open up and finagle the VIN code using a reader, but I'd think there's a good chance that a swap out of the "silver box" will get you XM.

One problem: I'm not sure if you'd have the antenna cabling to support XM. Getting to the underside of the antenna to change it out could be interesting. The headliner is hard and one-piece. The instruction for removing the headliner starts with removing the front seats. Maybe you could drop it and just move it forward to get to the antenna.

thanks for the reply and the info. Is there any way to tell if I do without taking the headliner down
