Also, does anyone have an opinion on HD radio? Is worth the extra expense? Some posters complain about reception problems with HD radio.

As for HD radio, it really depends on where you are. HD radio is a digital radio signal just like Satellite radio. That means that you either get all or nothing. Where I live, that just means you get nothing. It has all of the disadvantages of both terrestrial and satellite radio systems. Having said that, I suspect that as long as you are in a major metropolitan market and are not inside a parking garage or something, it should work just fine.

I did have a HD radio in that car and it worked really well in the greater Seattle area. There are a few dead spots but it even worked well in Bremerton (above posters general area). FM radio is funny. I live 35 miles from Seattle and yet the stations come in better than when I am driving around downtown Seattle. The location of the transmitter towers and terrain have more to do with getting the HD signal.
Definitely worth the cost if you have the stations in the area. The sound is much better than sat.

I think HD radio is going to grow; for instance the new zune players have built in HD radios.
