1998 Ford Escort
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Overall everything fits and works fine. If you follow the directions this adapter plate installs without a hitch. You do need to trim just a bit out of the inner support structure on a Ford Escort but it's a very small amount. If you don't trim the dash you can still jam the adapter into place but it won't sit flush as it should and it will sit proud of the rest of the dash. I have seen many installs skip the trimming step and you're left with an exceptionally cheap looking install. I'm a satisfied customer
Pros: Perfect fit, everything operates as it should, all dials work and align, good to go.
Cons: The adapter plate manufactured with a completely flat face and not curved like the stock setup. It looks a bit off and leaves head units with an imperfect angle that can cause the readouts on the face to be unreadable depending on the suns position and glare.
