XM Satellite Reception Problem

I have a 2010 TL. First car I've owned with built in XM radio. My previous 4 cars I've run a Sirius Starmate unit suctioned to the glass. Magnet antenna stuck to the roof.

I have to say; the reception in this TL is terrible. The XM radio cuts out a few times every single minute I'm driving, unless I'm going 55 down the highway with a perfectly clear view of the sky.

With my previous setup, it got amazing reception.

What is going on here??

The antenna is on the roof so tints would not be the issue.
