Default Poor Radio Reception

I just bought a brand new 2016 Jeep Cherokee and it has poor radio reception. I took it back to the dealer and they said there was nothing wrong with it. Can i just replace the antenna? I'm hoping for an easy fit that dealer couldn't be bothered with.

There could be a lot of reasons. You might want to post this in the section for the newer Cherokees. Someone there would be better able to help you.

This section is for the old buggers, 1984 to 2001.

To be honest though, you might want to just take to another dealership to get a second opinion. You replacing ANY part at this point could void the warranty on several others.

Terrestrial radio is a thing of the past.

You should have data, if not, you do on your phone.

BT and stream it.
