Hi,
Looking for recommendations on a good upgrade to the radio that fits in the large openning for this model.

I have a power antenna that's broken, can a new antenna be installed from the outside of the vehicle? I didn't see how.

Lots of people are using some of the models for the Scion that have MP3 capability. I think you can get them on ebay for less than $100.

The antenna is a common problem. The nylon "chain" has broken at the motor. To be perfect, you take the motor out from the inside fender well from the engine compartment and remove the nylon that's broken inside. Put the motor back. Get a new antenna and feed the nylon into the motor and have someone press the down ant button. Once the slack gets taken up, bolt the new antenna in. You can get replacement masts for about $35.
