I listen to the AM on my radio on my ride home . ( 2016 Kia Cadenza Tech option) For anyone interested it is either 1040 or 1410 . Both are talk sports radio . My Am reception downtown has never been good on any of my Kia's but it is noticeably bad on 1410 . The reception on both when I am driving downtown is terrible, to the point where it is mostly static . I should add that Downtown Vancouver besides the normal High Rise office towers also has trolly wires as many of our public transit are electric and have been forever . After saying all that is that normal for AM reception or are Kia's just bad radios

AM reception in a city sucks, always has with most any car.
Out on the highway the reception will fad in and out, but
you can get crappy AM reception much farther away than with
FM. That is why everyone went to FM in the place of AM, FM
much better reception when near a station

Just has to do with the radio waves, they are different areas of the spectrum and they all have different properties, notably what gene said. AM can go out farther but is interrupted easier. With saying that I've never actually tuned my radio to AM.
