AM reception is OK, but FM reception is pretty bad. It does pick up all the FM stations, but the reception is kind of unstable, like driving in the mountains or entering a tunnel. The stations don't really fade, but the sound is "dirty" and slightly distorted. I attribute this problem to the antenna thats etched into the rearmost driver side window. I fount a small tab in the pillar panel behind which theres an antenna connector attached to the window. The connection looked good and therefore the problem is either the radio itself or the etched antenna. I think its the antenna. The way to test this would be to attach a piece of thin wire to that connector and see if reception improves. If it does, then perhabs it makes sense to glue that wire around the edge of the window so that it can't be seen.
