Display fit perfectly into receiver slot. There was some minor fine tuning, such as removing an excess piece of plastic to be able to instal. And the color is not exactly perfect, but with a beautiful head unit blasting some gnarly beats, you will never know the difference.
Pros: Fits snuggly in its place
Cons: minor color difference from car dash. few minor modifications to get the unit to fit properly.
Fit replacement radio perfect and made it look as if car was built with this radio.
Pros: Perfect fit Looks like it came from the factory
Cons: Now everyone is asking for my help to upgrade their stereo systems
This kit looks as seamless as the stock in my Toyota Corolla 2012.
Pros: Easy to install Color match is almost perfect
Kit included free of charge, what else could you ask for?
I gave this product a 2 stars because it actually worked but to actually get it to work was a hassle. First, many of the cut edges from the plastic mold were still present. So, I had to file them down manually. Also, the face place ring that goes around the double DIN didn't snap into place because again of the plastic mold. Therefore, I had to file the left and right side down as well in order for it to properly snap into place. Lastly, the kit is held into the frame of the car using the 4 factory bolts that hold in the OEM radio. You have to secure the kit using 4 supplied L-brackets that come with the kit. One of the brackets didn't line up properly. So, it was difficult to line up the one bracket and the screw in order to secure the kit. And, because the bracket was off-center it would tweak the kit and pull it in odd directions as you screwed down and secured the kit. I understand Crutchfield tries to provide value by going with different vendors/suppliers but this one didn't work out.
Pros: Can't beat the price
Cons: Sometimes get what you pay for
Where to start??? The studs that support from back are bent. The front is scratched/worn from shipping. The 1/8" of extra plastic from the mold in which it was made had to be cut off the facing insert to get it to fit into the frame correctly. Should have spent more to get something better. Would have saved me an extra couple of hours.
Cons: Cheap quality - doesn't even survive the shipping to my houseCrutchfield response on October 12, 2015 We forwarded this review to our Technical Support team for follow-up. Lifetime tech support comes with every Crutchfield purchase.
Perfect fit and easy installation but not a bright silver like the trim package in the car but looks really good
Pros: Easy to install and perfect fit
Worked great on double din pioneer for Corolla.
Did the job
Easy installation and looks good
Pros: Easy installation, instructions good
The cases don't fit properly around the radio. The color is off and at the bottom The cases don't fit properly around the radio. The color is off and at the bottom is bubbled. Was very disappointed in this sets. Is bubbled. Was very disappointed in this sets. I had ordered a radio and installed it in the Honda and the pieces were perfect.
Cons: Finished product does not fit in the - properly.
Didn't fit at all seemed to be warped. Screws that hold the brackets on kept coming out. The springs clips that hold the face to the dash were to small and went all the way through. The bottom left of the face plate didnt line up. Had to go to a local retailer and get the right stuff metra kit 95-8202 and used the stock radio bezel very clean looking 45min. job turned in to a 4hr cluster!
Cons: The Whole Dash Install Kit!
Took a minute to figure out. Had to dremel out some plastic. Doesn't fit perfectly flush, but it is close enough. Grey color/texture is a very close match.
Pros: Color is a close match (grey)
Cons: Doesn't fit perfectly flush and directions are not idiot proof
Easy to install ..looks good
Not being sure whether to order the gray or the black I ordered both to see which was the best match. Mine ending up being black. The color match is almost spot on however the texture is slightly different. You would have to be looking for it to likely notice it. The fit and finish is not what we have come to expect as Toyota owners. The adapter does not precisely align at the top and bottom and protrudes to the tune of about 3/64th's of an inch. Your luck may vary. The sides are not an issue as they are covered by the trim. As a shop teacher it was just enough to be annoying but I suppose I can live with it. I agree with others that the instructions leave a little to be desired. There was flashing that needed to be removed from the injection mold process as well as having to cut off part of the mounting plates since I was using a double din configuration and not a single din with the pocket. A Dremel tool comes in handy for this chore. The screws that came with the kit as well as with the radio were worthless for my application (Kenwood DDX371). I had to go and purchase some screws that would fit. You have to be careful when selecting the length as if you buy them too long they will bottom out on an internal circuit board and possibly cause some damage. To bad Crutchfield does not allow you to post a link to a photo of your new installation. There is also a slight gap around the radio and adapter that again are borderline acceptable.
Pros: Free with purchase Good color match
Cons: Not the best instructions Texture of plastic slightly different Not the caliber of OEM fit and finish.
The kit is easy to assemble and fit almost perfect in the 2010 Toyota Corolla dash. The largest issue foe me was that the color was not an exact match. For some that might be a problem, but for me it was close enough.
Pros: Easy Install
Cons: Not a perfect color match
Makes for a very professional install. Easy and fast. Don't install without it.
First off, I am very happy with how my Pioneer aftermarket radio looks installed with this kit, but the fact that I sat and looked at the instructions for about an hour before I finally knew how it worked was frustrating. The instructions had a picture that didn't match for my DOUBLE-DIN install. Looks like they just copied the SINGLE-DIN picture. Also said to install screws which wasn't relevant for the DOUBLE-DIN. I eventually figured it out with no help from the instructions
Pros: Radio looks great with mounting bracket. Looks like factory install!
Cons: Horrible Instructions
Fit was perfect and everything I needed was there.
Pros: Good fot with options for different size units.
Cons: Directions for constructing kit prior to attaching unit not very clear.
Pros: Work perfect
Cons: No cons
Gets the job done, but could be better
Pros: Easy installation
Cons: Slightly off stock color, not perfect fit.
The product works fine. The color was not the same flat black I new that when I bought it.
Pros: Fits good no problems.
Cons: One tab was broken I can live with that.
This was great! It fit perfectly into my car.
Pros: Fits perfectly and looks great
FAr better kit than a certain other brand.Easy install ,very professional looking.Supplied instructions were spot on.
Pros: Easy,quick,original factory look with upgrade stereo system
Pros: Easily usable.
It works and with a little mods it fit nicely in my 2012 Corolla. The kit itself was fine for the most part. Only piece I had to modify was the stereo brackets. I had to cut the L-Shape on the back end off to fit my Pioneer AVIC receiver.
Pros: It works
Cons: Did require some modifications to get it to mount properly with my Pioneer Avic receiver. It also does not match the dash of my 2012 Corolla which has a dark grey OEM panel. This one is black, the 2 shades are not extremely far off but it is still a slight mis-match.
This kit was included in my order for free! I had no problem assembling and installing this American International kit and the fit was perfect. Kit is adaptable for both single and double DIN stereos, I chose a single DIN for my 2011 Toyota Corolla.
Pros: Easy to install, single or double DIN compatible.
always on time and in perfect condition
Made the installations look like factory original.
Pros: Very easy, good fit and match.
I was able to use this kit without any trouble at all. Perfect fit and finish, and though the color is a shade different than the original equipment, it blends in nicely with all of the various shades that are represented in the dash and center console.
Pros: Easy to assemble Wish I could include a pic cuz it looks so good
Easy install by following the directions and diagrams,
Pros: Fits well, looks good generally, nice replacement to the original, generally
Cons: minor cosmetic issues, and finish differs from the original dashboard material, but not serious.
Worked perfect but the color was grey and my dash is black.
Pros: Fits perfect
I have had any number of head units installed for me at places ranging from Best Buy to private care audio shops and I've never had a mounting kit that did it this clean with so little effort that look that much like the factory plate. If I thin consider that the kit came for free with the purchase of the head unit it's just that much better.
Pros: Universal mounting, double din or single din with a pocket, flush mounting, not just a hole cut in the dash but actually made for the car to look like it was supposed to be there.
Cons: I wish the plastic for the mounting supports was a little more substantial, I concerned that after a while time and vibration will take there tole.
A little confusing to put together for me, but it only took a few minutes to figure out. There were screws and clips not shown in instructions but seemed pretty simple to figure out which to use for my stereo. I think the color is a pretty good match, but the texture is a little off, but close enough for me. It fit good, but I would have liked to have the clips on the bottom edge like the original stereo as it is not quite flush on the bottom edge.
Pros: Free with the stereo I purchased. Fit the car well.
Cons: Could use better instructions
Was not impressed at all w/ this In-Dash mounting kit and glad that it was free w/ purchase of the stereo. Attachments are made out of cheap plastic and it does not sit flush w/ the other trim. Noticed that the stereo seems to sag over time because when mounting to the stereo you can't tighten the screws as tight as desired w/o breaking the plastic sides. Not to mention that the color also does not match my cars dash trim but that was expected. Currently looking for another mounting kit to replace this free kit.
Fits Well....easy to use
Pros: perfect fit
Cons: cheap plastic connector
Looks great in my 09 would buy again
It fit perfectly, and looks pretty much stock.
Pros: It's a lot sturdier than in dash receiver kits I've bought in the past. The mounting holes lined up perfectly as well.
Cons: No cons.
Worked as promised except the fit was no completely flush with the dashboard and the color was a little off from rest of dash.
Kit was complete and easy to use, as were the instructions for installation. No problems.
Pros: Ability to adjust the head unit in or out to align with plane of dash.
It fit, and looks consistent with the previous OEM parts.
This was the most confusing product I ever put together. It took me over an hour just trying to figure out the directions and put it together. The product itself fits great in the car . It just the assembly directions are very lacking.
Perfect fit. Install was simple.
This kit is perfect and it fits nicely on the dash.
I installed this kit together with a Sony XNV660BT
Navigation Unit in my 2010 Toyota Corolla LE .
The fit was very good and the appearance was like factory install. Color matching and quality of material were good.
I am very happy with this kit.
Perfect fit on my 2010 Corolla. Looks great, professional fit.
Very good kit, the colors match the dash.
I've been looking around and this kit blows away all the others..
the only "problem", is that if you want to use a DOUBLE DIN radio, you have to
actually CUT 2 pieces of the kit (not big deal)...
looks well but the screw holes are not aligned well so can't bolt the screws in. If you still screw it in then it sticks out from the dash. what a waste of time.
Perfect fit! Looks really neat on the dash.

The dash kit I purchased last year for my Corolla fit very well and our Prius has the same basic layout; so I expect it will look equally as nice once installed. [ Ronald Dec 17, 2015 ]
