2014 JGC radio reception
Anyone else experience bad fringe area AM radio reception on their 2014 with the shark fin? I've had this problem since new and now I have 5000 miles on it. I've had the dealer apply all updates, but I still have bad AM reception compared to my 2005 JGC I traded in. Whenever I drive to fringe areas, I experience a signal fade and then it returns to normal, plus it sounds like the sound of distant thunderstorms. Same locations I drove my 2005 with the factory radio, reception was crystal clear... no fade, no volume changes, etc. I thought it might be a bad ground, but the tech said he could not find a problem. I informed him that he would not, because the dealership was in a local area and not in a fringe area. FM reception isn't that great in the fringe areas (fading) compared to the 2005. Sirius seems to be ok, haven't had a problem. Anyone else experience this? I am thinking of asking for a new radio since I can't use it with passengers complaining about the reception. My only concern is, it will be a refurb and might be worse than what I have now.
