Phantom of the Radio

2006 Dodge Durango Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (4.7L 8cyl 5A)
My 2006 Dodge Durango is a vast improvement over my 2001 Durango: the ride is MUCH smoother, it has more power, and the seats are nicer. The drawbacks are: cheaper carpet which is easily marred, plastic pieces on the seats pop off randomly, the 2nd row seat belts are difficult for kids old enough (8, 10) to take off their seat belts, the gap between the front seats and the middle console is no man's land, where almost anything can fall through, AND the number one strange feature - THE RADIO LOUDLY CRACKLES AND POPS WHEN IT ISN'T EVEN ON! Maybe it's SIRIUS trying to break through since I didn't re-up? Dealership has no clue and offered no remedy.
Power, safety, comfort
Fix the radio so that it doesn't randomly crackle and pop, very distracting because it is very loud. Make front seats larger so that things don't fall between the console and the seats. Move change holder back where it was. Put in better carpet, like what was in my 2001. More cup holders on 3rd row
