I got my Up a few weeks ago, and everything was great, I loved it, but recently my radio is getting really bad to no signal! It's really annoying, obviously I need music in my car. I just wondered if anyone else has had any problems all of a sudden with their radio and if anyone knows how it can be fixed? Thanks

It is a common problem that the antenna amplifier in the antenna base breaks and must be replaced. But does sound odd, if it is a brand new car. Anyway I think you should contact the dealer.

The antenna amplifier might be a problem, but the radio has poor reception on its own:

You can read about the poor radio in several other threads as well. This is VW quality.

Thanks for your replies, I've contacted the dealer and I will take my car in next Wednesday, hopefully an easy fix as I do love driving my UP

Short of having a new radio, mines had both a new antenna and aerial base, made no difference at all! I'm going to be adding a DAB system into mine soon anyway so not that fussed, but it is annoying!

I find DAB signal not all that great, prepare for lots of drop outs on that!
