OK but not any better than that

2009 Toyota Matrix
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It's made well enough and matches the black in my interior. It clipped into mt dash fine but the way it fits around my stereo is not that great. There's a small gap all the way around the unit. Used original metal factory stereo mounts as the plastic ones that come with kit are flimsy and useless.

Pros: Fit in to existing dash well.

Cons: Doesn't fit around stereo very well.

Mounting Brackets Didn't Work

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Tried to use this to install a Pioneer stereo in a 2009 Matrix S. I ended up using the metal brackets from the OEM unit because the left mounting bracket wouldn't line up with the screw holes. There was a protrusion on the metal plate the brackets mount to that blocked it from going into place. Fortunately the OEM metal bracket screw holes lined up perfectly and are much sturdier anyway. I did use the trim plate which worked out well.

Pros: Trim plate looks good.

Cons: Brackets wouldn't line up with screw holes.

The worst

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I spent have the day trying to get this to fit snug and look good but no way . It sets the stereo to far back and hard to use the volume controls . I think I might be able to re-work the original metal brackets to fit better ! A big headache to me !!

Pros: none

Cons: as stated above !

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Poor fit. It leaves a quarter-inch gap at the bottom. I called Crutchfield and was told that's just how it fits. I'm not happy with the results.

Pros: None.

Cons: Does not look good.

Metra 95-8224 Dash Kit

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

As part of my purchase of the Jensen VX 7020 Multimedia Car radio with Navigation, Crutchfield automatically supplies this Metra 95-8224 Dash trim and mounting bracket kit for my 2009 Pontiac Vibe. After a few attempts of placing it around my new radio as well as to the Dash panel of which it snaps into, I soon learn that it did not fit around the radio in the way that I though it was supposed to. Then when placed inside the OEM Dash panel's opening, I found large gaps and poor fit and finishes around the perimeter of the trim. Third, I found that the plastic mounting brackets did not fit correctly into the interior mounting supports within the dash. And then it seems that radio and the this radio trim are completely miss-aligned to each other.... such that I could of never have placed the exterior dash panel against to or around the radio..

Pros: nothing.

Cons: Was not correctly design, tested or verified to fit into my 2009 Pontiac Vibe. I since ordered a Scosche TA2102B trim mounting kit which does correctly and nicely fit into my car. Crutchfield was very nice about crediting me for my cost of the Scosche. Thanks again for your help Crutchfield.

Worse kit I have ever received from Crutchfield!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It didn't align well with the opening in the dash. It didn't allow the moving bezel to work on my Pioneer AVH-X8500BHS. The mounting tabs broke off on both sides when trying to position it properly.

Pros: None

Cons: It's junk

received this product and while it fits the opening of my car it did fit the receiver. if the reciever is 7" wide then tell me how this is supposed to fit in a 6.7" dash kit opening.
