After my kids broke my first factory antenna, I told myself I would never replace it again. After it broke the second time I looked for an alternative. I found this particular antenna and decided to give it a chance. I have a Toyota Sienna minivan and the replacement of the factory antenna is very complicated because you have to get under the wheel well. This time I just decided to install this antenna inside the van. I took off the radio and disconnected the factory antenna cord and snaked this antenna around the trim. I adhered it to the top of my windshield and gave it a try. I had great reception on all of my local radio stations. And the arms are springy; they can be gently bent away from any nearby surfaces to prevent them rattling.
