Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The price was nice and the quality of the product was great. BUT I was installing this in a 94 olds cutlass supreme and the factory antennae wire has a bend in it and would not fit correctly into this adapter, I had to go guy another adapter to fit into this one which fit into the stereo just fine, If your antennae wire has the factory bent end on the wire I would explore other options.

Pros: Great quality, price

Cons: will not accept factory bend antenna wire.
