Byrider To Offer Connected Car Services With Vehicle Purchase

The used car dealership network Byrider is partnering with Automatic Labs Inc., a SiriusXM company. The Automatic Dealer Program alliance allows participating Byrider locations — there are more than 150 of them across the United States — to offer customers an Automatic Connected Car Assistant and a free subscription that includes three years of Automatic’s crash alert and connected maintenance services, as well as up to 18 months of Automatic’s premium services, including roadside assistance.

With Automatic’s app and adapter, most model-year 1996 or later vehicles can become connected cars. The technology gives drivers access to variety of features including service alerts, “Check Engine” light diagnostics and recall information.
