Looks good. Good fit.
This after market dash kit looks great in my 2010 Highlander.
Pros: Great fit in the dash.
Cons: The brackets fit ok in the back but allow the right side to stick out a little. Might be my fault though.
This unit fit in my Highlander, but it's not great. Because the unit is softer plastic, there is a lot of play. The upper section that holds the display / backup camera is slightly off-center. I think I need to open the dash up and figure out some way to reinforce that part. The half-circle that covers where the knobs used to be sticks out a bit too much on one side. The frame around the stereo droops a bit in the middle. The exterior finish doesn't match the original, but looks OK overall. The installation / setup itself took a while but was pretty straight-forward. I would have gone for a slightly more expensive but better-made option if it was available.
Pros: Overall fit is good Exterior finish is good Installation was relatively simple
Cons: Softer plastic, so things don't line up perfectly
The bezel ring in the original kit did not fit in the opening at all. Crutchfield sent another kit. The slots for the mounting screws did not align with the holes in the radio and required modificaiton. After some modificaiton the bezel ring fit in the opening, but does not look like the quality of the car. In addition, the entire kit was plastic. The kit supports both the radio and the car's video display. The original supports were metal. This kit should have metal supports and the parts should bit together properly without modification.
Pros: The color matches the dash.
Cons: Required modification. The bezel in the first kit did not fit at all. The one in the second kit required modification to fit. Quality is definitely lacking.
Totally satisfied with this unit. Sound, features, easy to use. The unit fit perfectly and was relatively easy to install. Using the "Vehicle Specific" kit, supplied install manual, and wire harness, I had the unit on and working in a few hours. If it sounds this good with factory speakers I cant wait until I can upgrade to better speakers. The navigation and satellite radio... GREAT. The Crutchfield team was awesome. From helping me choose the system to fit my budget and what I wanted.Their tech support is second to none if not better. They knew the product and were familure with my vehicle
The install kit came just as pictured and for a double din unit install had to modify the kit. First, is obvious had to remove the center plastic from not one but two pieces so the double din unit will slide in. Then for whatever reason there is two tabs on the back of this unit that required their removal before the radio would fit between them. You have to reuse your hazards button which btw was very hard to push thru the opening they had left to do it in and you have to reuse the plastic tabs from your original radio and some bolts. The whole bracket is very wobbly and once in the radio is held in proper like which I was so worried about but the clock at the top of the bracket is weak. The bracket will flex when setting the time on the Toyota clock which is scary but, I guess I don't do that very often. Lastly, is the fit and finish of the install the bracket has a different texture compared to the rest of the dash and as one other reviewer noted the part of the bracket that covers the huge knob holes left from the factory one is slightly higher then the dash and no part in the kit to fix this problem. But in the end you have huge hole that the factory radio leaves behind and you'll need to fill it some how. I only wish this company would have found a way to attach this kit to the original Toyota metal bracket.
Pros: Fills the void left by the factory radio, fit and finish is decent considering how big the factory radio is, and (Black) color is nearly dead on
Cons: Wobbly, alot of extra cutting and trimming to install a double din (at least an hours worth), texture is wrong, and I wish I could have chosen a Metra install kit for this install.
Very nice kit which looks beautiful in the dash. Color matches perfectly and texture of surface gives it a factory look. The tolerances are tight on the parts making for a somewhat difficult assembly for fear of breaking the plastic but fits together nicely once assembled. Fit in the dash is perfect with even spacing all around the edges. Very pleased with the results.
Pros: Good fit and finish.
Cons: Somewhat difficult to assemble due to tight tolerances of individual parts.
Upon first review the product looks solid and well made. Cut well and ready to go right from the box. This however was the mos difficult part of the install and after 2 hours of fiddling and even then taking to a pro installer cannot get it fit flush on the right side. The bracket just sticks out from the dash by 1/5". Enough to be noticeable and without gluing it permanently in there, it will be noticeable. I would buy again to see if mine is just a fluke, but don't want to spend the money on buying it and then having to RMA it.
Pros: Well made from quality components. Color matched great with Ash Interior on base model. Great instructions, would be easy to install if it only fit correctly
Cons: Fit is mediocre to poor, making for a lot of frustration. This shouldn't be something that you should have to call tech support to install, nor take to a professional installer.
