You should try owning a Jeep
But depends on the age of them, I had a mk3 golf for 10 years, replaced a fair few bits on it, rust was a killer on that. That was a money pit.
Mk6 golf - bought it new sold it when it was 6 years old before it got too many issues.
VW Bora for 12 months, needed a rad and brakes and exhaust, it was 15 years old, also had to do basically all service items and the door window mechs both sides, so spent alot for the 12 months
Mk2 New Beetle(2012), I luckily had extended warranty as at 48k it needed £1000 worth of cam chains, I had to do steering bushes to save my self 500 quid. Plus side the DAB radio in that worked fine, because it had a little roof mounted antenna. had that just over 2 years
Mk7 golf only 18 months (bought at 3 years old), just servicing it at VW to keep warranty was enough, but I could tell it was going to get expensive soon, DAB radio I think on those was antenna round the pillars or a module in the boot that connected to the rear window as it didnt have a roof aerial, I dont think the reception was nearly as good.
Both the beetle and the golf I bought from quite a distance away so had to totally retune the radios.
My Jeep, a 2011 owned it for 3 months, replaced the whole front subframe, full service, track rod ends, lambda sensor and the radiator is now starting to seep, so far winner of money pit goes to this!
So based on the fact the car is a 2015, has it got any sort of warranty on it? If so I'd take it back to the garage and tell em it needs sorting. Theres the other possibility with modern cars that might need looking at and thats software update. gone are the days of a radio just being some transistors and just working, so with some car they have factory software updates for all parts of the car (my mk7 had to have a software update for the handbrake!), I know like for music streaming some Jeeps you had to do a firmware update on the head units, so maybe check that out.
I mean important bit of info, whats the car/head unit, might help us work out if its something more than just a rubbish aerial
