Been driving my '04 X type for about a week. Radio reception is very weak. Seek feature blows by many local stations. Does this car use an antena built in the windshield like GM did 20 years ago (which didn't work)?
Also, after listening to the AM band about 10 minutes, the reception drops to almost nothing. Even for the strongest radio station in the area.
Yeah lol!!! Do it black benz and make the picture you take of it your avatar! I'd like that!
Wish I could help you out more bud...I haven't had a problem and haven't heard too many reception problems since I've been on this site....have any other problems like drivetrain, windows, door locks or a/c I could help ya out!
You could either look into taking the radio away from the dash and check things out...perhaps replace the radio...you can find single din dash kits at www.nexxia.co.uk/
If mine was like that and under warranty...I'd be seeing the local jag dealer...now I am officially surrounded by dealers as well! I have one in Novi, Troy and now just outside of Utica here in Michigan...here's a map">
My '07 X-Type seems to get good reception until I hit hilly roads. That's when it starts to get staticky (is that a word?). Anyway, I haven't tried the AM band; maybe I should next time I take her out. I know the antenna is embedded in the rear glass on the sedan, but I think the wagon has a stalk antenna.
I just got my new to me car and I am shocked at how bad the reception is. I have had many cars with integrated antennas, but they were all better than this car. But they were all newer too. IS350, Honda Accord, and my Nissan Z all had great reception. Is there any way to boost the signal or improve reception?
