One of my friends is chief engineer of a 50 kW clear channel AM. 
Their transmitter is in the far SW burbs of Chicago. He told me 
several years ago that he got lots of phone calls from owners of 
Fords who couldn't hear his station on the north or northwest side 
of town. 

My Volvo S80 (that I just gave to our son in law) was fine on the AM 
band, and was reasonably good on HF. I had some intermittent 
problems with noise on AM that the dealer fixed under warranty. It 
was related to the heater in the rear window (which also held the 
antenna). My new Toyota Sequoia also does fine on the AM band. I 
haven't had time to put an HF rig in it yet.
