I have a 2017 Cadillac XT5. The radio/antenna at time drops SXM channels. The dealer provided a loner with the same radio/antenna nad it did the same thing. Anyone else experienced this problem?

Question type: General

I suspect the radio and or antenna are the cause of the problem. Called Cadillac Assist and they blamed it on cell towers, power lines, etc. I also have a 2011 GMC Terrain. It has never dropped a SXM channel.

Sirius XM radio is satellite based and not based on cell towers. Cadillac is pulling your leg.

Yeah this problem is because GM has the antenna mounted POORLY in the XT5. I'm having the same problems and I'm guessing i will have to cancel my service due to GM's poor design. I've already had my XM antenna warranty replaced and it does the same thing still.
