Flimsy and a bit difficult to figure out.

Written by: Steve D from Livingston, MT on July 27, 2016

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

Putting this together took more time that taking off door covers and installing speakers. Once together it is flimsy and cheap. It doesn't seat tightly with the Honda Dash container. Once installed things look 95% okay, but it doesn't instill alot of confidence compared to the metal dash kit that held the stock stereo in.

Pros: It works okay

Cons: Flimsy, didn't line up great with the stereo screws. difficult to assemble. Instructions were poor.

Must have done something wrong

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

After installing the head unit and dash kit, I was unable to get the dash trim back where it belonged. Left a 1/16th gap between the dash trim and the dash along the top by the radio. Factory radio had thin metal tabs holding it in, new radio has thicker plastic, this trim kit added more thickness...had to apply after market narrow body trim to cover the gap. Not thrilled.

Pros: Easy enough install.

Cons: Does not allow proper reinstall of dash trim.

Great mount

Written by: John W. J. from phoenix, AZ on February 4, 2016

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

This mount was great. Very easy to install and only took a few minutes. Looked like it was made to fit my Honda except for one thing, it was the wrong color and didn't match the interior. I ordered grey and it came to me in black, strangely enough that color option wasn't even available as a choice. I didn't have time to send it back for the right color since I'm moving out of state, so I installed it anyway.

Pros: looks great and easy to install

Cons: wrong color

What can I say - it fits...

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

It matches the color of my dash - fits without gaps. One problem is that the bottom part is supposed to have some bolts that connect it to the top part - but it didn't come with them (even though the directions said it did). I called Metra and they said they'd send a set.

Pros: - Color matches - Fits dash without gaps

Cons: - Didn't come with all the right hardware (but Metra is sending it after calling them)

Looks Great

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Looks great and matches the Honda trim very well. Everything fits well after install. The side plates have so many holes its hard to figure out wich ones to use and those same side plates are real thin and flimsy. Overall once its mounted it seems sturdy enough however.

Pros: Color match and fit

Cons: lots of holes to figure out

Simple and clean

Written by: Bikerbudmatt from Connecticut on October 2, 2015

2010 Honda Ridgeline
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Worked fine for my 2010 Ridgeline. Mount kits have more holes than Swiss cheese because they have to accommodate many different models of receivers. Just be patient with the instructions and you'll be fine. I did not tell my tech-savvy daughter about the new receiver. When she got into the truck, it took her a full minute to realize that there was something new in the dash. I think it was because the mount kit made for a very clean finish, and the trim was a great color match.

Pros: Match to original Honda plastics was excellent. Maintains original design appearance. Accommodates under-receiver tray.

Cons: Appears flimsy. Assembly diagram unclear. Parts not keyed to diagram.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

this was the hardest part of installation. The universal guidelines are very subjective and it took me awhile to figure out right mount for my set up.

Pros: -cheap -universal

Cons: -very difficult for Hondas -no guideline specs for Hondas

Great because it was free, but could be constructed better.

Written by: Randy S. from Akron, OH on March 7, 2015

2006 Honda Ridgeline
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It was free with the purchase of my head unit, so I can't complain too much. However, it's a little flimsy. A few times when I was assembling it, I thought I was going to break the plastic, but I didn't. I used Metra install kits many years ago and I remember them being more well built.

Pros: - Fit, and color matched.

Cons: - Feels cheaply made.

Honda Ridgeline 2012 reciver kit

Written by: Nisso from Chandler, AZ on January 6, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The color and the shape matches the existing frame and no one noticed that its not the original part. It comes with manual installation and all the accessories and it just work perfect in my car (Honda Ridgeline RT 2012). I bought it with the AVH-X5500BHS DVD and everything looks really nice. I also appreciate Crutchfield costumer service and the great support that they provided

Pros: The same color as the other pieces in my car and no holes or openings in the receiver kit

Cons: None

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Taupe color is powder coated on black plastic. Color matches okay to dash trim, but the hazard button/storage tray under is slightly darker than this unit. The fit is good. The quality of materials is questionable.

Pros: Fit; Included at no charge with my head unit

Cons: Quality of materials

Written by: Mr Innovator from Sidney Mt on December 19, 2013

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

I had to see this kit to believe it, when i opened the Metra package, my immediate response was " you gotta be kiddin me! I went from hvy duty factory steel brackets to these plastic flimsy cheapo's. I commend Crutchfield for offering " free install products" but in this case guy's i wld have gladly paid for an upgrade to metal brackets, after all why wld the factory put heavy duty steel in if they were'nt needed! As soon as i can find a quality aftermarket steel bracket ,this kit is going to the landfill. Remember Crutchfield your good name can get attached to junk products very quickly, i'd dump these vendors yesterday. Free is not a "good price " when a customer is upset.!

Pros: None, absolutely none. I've seen better made plastic in Fisher-Price toys.

Cons: I have never had to write such a scathing review.. Even if this Metra kit had metal brackets for my Dbl-Din unit i wld still write it, not even a day after install & the taupe finish is perm scratched & looks like something out of a garage sale, Crutchfield... seriously you folks need to offer an upgrade as an option even if its an extra chrg. Factory off road capable vehicles dont need toy plastic brackets on expensive head units. If they did, dont you think they'd put em in first?

Nice looking but flawed for JVC KWHDRBT

Written by: JLM from Mandan, ND on October 23, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The radio looks nice once installed, but kit mounting required some heavy modifying (i.e., sawing and drilling) to make it fit the JVC KWHDR81BT receiver correctly. The mods were out of sight so didn't affect the look, but the hidden brackets had to be cut down and new holes had to be drilled to match up with the receiver.

Pros: Looks nice in my Ridgeline and could easily pass for OEM. Fits the Ridgeline fine but so-so on the receiver mounting brackets.

Cons: Cheap - plastic versus OEM metal. Not a good mounting fit and required mods to fit correctly to receiver.

After studying the tiny drawing of the mounting bracket for a while I finally figured out how it actually went together. The written instuctions were no help at all. Once assembled properly the installation looks fine.

Install kit

Written by: Ben from NJ on August 19, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Out of everything that I used to put the head unit in, this piece gave me the most trouble. The screws from the head unit were too short to go through the plastic and catch a thread in the radio requiring a run to the parts store. The assembly of the kit seems rather flimsy but worked. Once again I had trouble with short screws when mounting the whole thing into the dash because the plastic from the kit is about 1/4" thick. I wasn't able to catch one screw and had to find a longer one. The others BARELY caught.

Pros: Looks clean and original.

Cons: If this was made out of thin metal, there would not be any issues with installation. I would have paid extra to have a higher quality, metal install kit to make everything go smoother. It works but least DIY friendly piece of the whole install.

This product is not easy to put together. Also after installing the instrument trim panel of my 2007 Ridgeline does not fit flush. This product came free with my in dash GPS unit but it leaves a lot to be desired.

Pros: Color matches well.

Cons: Instructions are very vague. Trim panel does not fit correctly after install.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The directions were not real clear and there were many bolts missing from my kit. Called Crutchfield and they offered to send out more bolts but my dash was already apart so had to run to the hardware store and spend $3.00 on additional replacement bolts.

Pros: It fits and looks like factory after the install.

Cons: Bolts missing from package and only fair instructions. Question the build quality based on it being plastic and the factory one is metal.

2010 Honda Ridgeline
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The customer service advisers were great. I used the online chat feature to gain information on the product and they were prompt in responding. I purchased this for my 2010 Ridgeline so I could have an 8" screen installed in it for my onboard computer. The interior dimensions were totally wrong but the outside (front face) dimensions were correct to the Double Din specs. I asked the customer Service Rep to double check the measurements so I would not have to order a touch screen and have it go to waste. Now this mis-measurement has halted my project trying to find more 'custom' solution. Maybe it works for a Double Din aftermarket radio/head-units, but if someone wants to install a touch-screen, please be aware of the 'internal' dimensions.

Flimsy

Written by: Chupacabra from Denver, CO on August 2, 2010

This unit is just not up to the task for a double-DIN unit. Look at the length of the plastic mounting ears and ask yourself just how long a heavy double-DIN unit will last before those ears snap off. I've gone through two of these so far, as soon as I take the Ridgeline on a washboard road, the vibrations simply snap the ears right off. I've tried reinforcing it with metal angle irons and I get a little more life out of it, but this is simply an inadequate design for the weight of a double-DIN radio. Due to the distance between the radio and the mounting holes, I think the only real solution would be a full metal mount kit with enough strength to support a double-DIN radio. Plastic just doesn't cut it in this case.

Cons:
