Hello, my name is Bobby. Thanks for the question. If you only want a factory radio installed then you can have this done at a shop or at the dealer. It is needs a radio and antenna it will run about $500-600 for the factory unit. If you do not care about the factory unit then you can get a radio much cheaper at a place like Best Buy or a radio shop for about $200-250.

Just to clarify, do you think I need a completely new radio and antenna or would replacing just the antenna fix the am reception problem?
Buick Mechanic: FIXITMAN, Master Technician replied 3 years ago
It is really hard to say for sure. It sounds like it may just be the antenna, and if it is you can get that replaced for about $150-200.
