Many people upgrade their car audio system to utilize new features e.g. satellite radio.

Do you have your vehicles original radio? If not why?

Three OEMs all work fine, very decent wattage, distortion free, and they punch out the fringe stations as well. Plenty of sound as for driving!

I have OEM radios in my vehicles but neither is the actual OEM radio that was put in them when they were on the assembly line. Both went on the fritz and needed replaced. The SUV tape deck jammed and the wagon stopped playing to the left side.

I hate aftermarket so I went to scrap yards and got identical OEM replacements.
