Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Made very well and fit perfectly. Color and texture match stock interior plastic, looks oem.

Pros: Matched interior well, fit good and quality made.

Cons: Didn't use the included side mounts, were flimsy compared to metal mounts that came with stock stereo. I used those instead and install worked fine.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It did the job and it came free with the receiver.

Pros: I fills the hole and allows you to mount the after market radio in the car. It does not squeak or rattle when going down the road.

Cons: The plastic is not an exact form to the surrounding dash. It is slightly protruding above the surface in the middle and slightly recessed at the corners. It also did not allow me to use the metal mounting frame that came with the radio. To add options to the back of the radio I will have to disassemble the dash like it was first time install.

Fit my car and my new stereo

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Fits the car well. The color and texture of the plastic trim matches the adjacent trim in the car. Once I assembled it it was easy to install. The directions were my only gripe. They are horrible. The first figure (the one for attaching the sides) mentioned in the directions isn't actually there. That was a little frustrating, but once I figured it out on my own it was pretty easy to do the rest.

Pros: Quality product. Fits perfectly in my car perfectly.

Cons: Terrible directions.

Not flashy but it works

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It does not spruce up your dash in terms of appearance, but it works for my new car stereo. Perfect fit, and the additional compartment is a plus. The back screw is a little long and protrudes slightly within the additional compartment but is not obvious.

Pros: It fits and provides additional compartment for CDs or even the remote or your phone.

Cons: No glaring negative features as of this writing.

This was a great dash kit and looks great after installing. It's amazing how much it matches the factory dash.

All of the parts were there and allowed me to install a new Alpine DVD Nav system in my wife's 2011 Honda CRV. Instructions weren't very clear but looked pretty good once installed.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It took some trial and error to put things together, the instructions could have been a little clearer. Interestingly enough, when everything was done I actually ended up just using the double din bezel. i had the adapter put together and found I needed longer bolts to mount the radio. I was getting ready to go get them, and noticed that the Alpine double din radio actually fit perfectly in the existing frame from the Honda, it just needed a bezel. I took the one that came with the kit, trimmed off the mounting tabs, added 2 drops of superglue and was done :)

Pros: Pretty good construction Fit both the radio and the space in the Honda

Cons: instructions could be clearer radio mounting bolts were too short

Poor instructions, kit screws don't fit

Written by: Broz from Washington State on January 31, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The instructions are incomplete, and wrong in some ways. It's unclear how to attach some items, there is no "Figure F" to refer to, and I'm supposed to attach a rear support bracket that's not included. I'm supposed to make one? Might as well make the entire kit. The screws that came with the radio don't have the reach to fit thru this new bracket. The kit screws don't hold tight.

Pros: Can be made to work

Cons: Essentially, pretty bad fit, and poor instructions.

Good produce

2008 Honda CRV LX
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The fit and finish is good but not perfect when compared to the original Honda radio frame. There is a slight warp to the frame that is that can be seen when it is installed against the existing dashboard panels but it is not a big deal. The instructions supplied by the American International Company are poorly written and hard to follow, I had to re-read them several times and work with the part on the radio for a while before it made sense. The frame assembly instructions were separate from the Crutchfield MasterSheet instructions. In contrast, Crutchfield's instructions to disassemble and reassemble the dashboard panels on the MasterSheet were very clearly written. Too bad Crutchfield didn't write the instructions for the frame assembly.

Pros: Low cost, overall satisfactory frame.

Cons: Poorly written instructions.

2007 Honda CRV EX
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The instructions and associated illustrations were so poor it took me longer to figure out how to fit the correct bits together than it did to take apart the dash and install the new receiver. If you have not done this before and / or do not know if you have a DIN or ISO size receiver, you can try randomly fitting the bits together....statistically it can take between 5 and 60 minutes....but hey, you may get lucky! Better that the manufacturer take a lesson....and if there is a completely impractical pictorial instruction, only then add words.

Pros: Once installed fit nicely and appearance is consistent with the rest of car dash

Cons: Very poor assembly instructions.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Easy to assemble and install, but the finish doesn't quite match and the attachment points are plastic instead of metal, which makes me wonder if it might not crack and break over time.

Pros: Easy to assemble, fits perfectly.

Cons: Color and texture aren't quite right, somewhat flimsy feeling.

This kit did not provide and exact fit for our 2009 Honda CR-V Ex. However our installer was able to file and sand it to a flawless fit. The result is excellent.

Pros: after installing, it matches trim in car

Cons: needed resizing to fit
