Default Why do 2006 Honda radios have such crappy reception?

I drove 6 different Accord EX sedans (4cyl, cloth) and they all had the
same crappy reception of local FM stations. I had rented a Nissan
recently...no problems.

It almost seems like the station isn't quite locked on the frequency. I've
seen this with the CR-V EX's...maybe it's low-quality in-dash changers that
are the problem.

I hear ya bro...I like AM talk radio and it is the worst recepition
ever, almost non-exsistant. There is no excuse for that. If you turn
off the motor it is a little better but WTF!!!

Does it have an antenna or just the wires in the back window?

Another reason to keep my Prelude. Maybe because it was made in Saitama.

The wires in the rear window are the antenna.

I have a 90 Accord and had the same problem. My automatic antenna
broke and I found a replacement was $150. I replaced it with a manual
antenna, $10, and reception improved quite a bit.

Maybe you guys live in the sticks. My CR-V radio works great in Pittsburgh!

Instead of whining about, just replace it. In twenty five years of driving,
I've never kept one stock stereo.

Many modern vehicles have the radio so integrated into the vehicle that
it is very difficult to cleanly replace them with an aftermarket unit.
