I subscribed to this forum specifically to respond to this thread. In September of 2013 I was fortunate enough to be given a company vehicle. The truck was satellite ready & my work saw no problem with me activating it as long as I maintained the account. I activated the truck but a few days later saw a $170 charge on my CC from Sirius. Upon investigating I saw another vehicle was added to my account, a 2012 Cadillac. It was a mixup & the account was credited and cleared. No problem.
Now how this relates to this thread... I have been getting calls and letters from a company called Vehicle Protection Center who are asking me to extend my warranty on my 2012 Cadillac & my 2010 Chevy. My only conclusion is that this is coming from Sirius. Neither vehicle has any association with my name other than my Sirius account.
I have tried to make this case to them on Facebook but the only response I get is "we assure you we do not sell your information". My response was it was either hacked or they really don't know what's going on in their own company. I have done many different searches on Google and most of them have linked Vehicle Protection Center with their Sirius/XM subscription just like I found here.
Well they sold mine too or they own a sideline warranty company. I am having the exact same experience. It did not take me long to figure this out. I acquired service for a gift for my sister. I have another for my wife. Neither car has not been to a dealer since they have owned it. Sirius is the only company that has my number associated with these cars. At first I laughed about it mostly and asked them to take me off the list. After a bunch of calls I am pretty irritated. Heck, my sister has not had service for two years now!

In addition to their customer service being poor at best, they now bombard you with marketing calls. I keep the service so my wife can listen to the news as opposed to radio shows when she commutes to work. I am exploring other possibilities now.
What about your insurance company? They know about your car and have your phone number right?
