Re: Bad FM radio reception

Yep. It pulls in a lot of stations...poorly. Even the local stations are not particularly clear.

Re: Bad FM radio reception

Seems to be a pretty common problem, Hopefully Jeep figures out something with this

Re: Bad FM radio reception

I might be mistaken but there might be a TSB for this issue....let me see if I can find it.

UPDATE: it was for poor SIRIUS reception.

Re: Bad FM radio reception

I haven't noticed any issue, but there are only a couple stations I listen to.

The only time I notice any static starting up is when I'm close to the Western border of the state or parked in my garage, which is in the basement level on on the side of a hill that faces away from the hill where the towers are.

I can't comment on satellite radio since I don't ever use it. If I want overly compressed music, I'll listen to YouTube.

Re: Bad FM radio reception

I have experienced this. Reception is not nearly as good as the JKU I traded in. My assumption is the lack of a real antenna (vs the JKU) that sticks up in the air.
