    the one cd in dash radio im my 2010 access cab, prerunner, TRD sport sounds fantastic when playing cd's or ipod....fm is a different story. I can't determine if it's a reception issue or if the tuner (headunit) is bad. If the truck is parked and fm radio is selected...the sound is good....if I am moving (driving)...the sound gets distorted when music is playing but seems to be ok when the radio announcer is speaking.....any clue whats causing this?

    Take it back and make them figure it out since it's a new truck.

    When I go to the dealership next week to pick up the license plates I will have a service tech look into my reception issue. By the way, does anyone know who manufactures the non-jbl radios?...(I assume mine is non-jbl) just curious to know if they are Pioneer, etc....

    Bumping this old thread.

    The FM radio reception in my 2009 was fine until a few weeks ago. Now I barely get any stations to come in. Only a few of the strongest stations come in and even they have a bit of static. I checked my antennae and it's screwed in tight and doesn't seem like it has any issues. Anyone else have this issue?
