A lot of people feel the FM radio reception of the XC90's is week. I notice it is a little worse than my other car at picking up the stations farther away. However when the station is tuned it sounds nice.<p>My theory for this is that it is the atenna's fault not the radio's. The XC90's atenna is located underneath the black plastic section at the back of the roof. Therefore it must be coiled up and relatively flat compared to a standard vertical antenna mast. This probably gives a weaker signal to the radio.<p>So poor radio reception is the price you pay for not having an annoying attena mast or one that is retractable and will break right after the warranty is up.
