Our take on the Metra 99-5826 Dash Kit

by Jon Paulette

Your 2010-up Mustang is a very cool car, but the console presents a bit of a challenge when it's time to install an equally cool stereo. Metra's kit  allows you to install an aftermarket single- or double-DIN receiver while also updating the look of your Mustang's climate control functions with full touchscreen functionality.

This kit features a full-color touchscreen that that let you access all SYNC functions (if equipped), menu options, and climate controls found in the Mustang. It's a perfect match for the color, texture, and contours of your dash. Warranty: 1 year.

Metra Dashkit for 12 Mustang

Written By JCM64, Mars, TX on Saturday, June 14, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Was skeptical but am pleasantly pleased with this dashkit thus far. Installer said there may be some reliability issues with it though (and he is a Metra dealer.). Don't want to pay an extra $30 warranty for a $200 item. Only time will tell.
Pros:
Touchscreen
Cons:
Would be nice to be able to dim the display.

Makes the install better than OEM

Written By dnut, Ann Arbor, MI on Saturday, June 14, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I looked at the several options for the dash kit for my new 2014 Mustang. When I ordered the car, I go the base stereo without sync because I could not get the Shaker 500 with the other options that I wanted. I was a little worried that the install this time replaced so much - including the HVAC controls...but this kit is great. It has a cleaner look than the factory unit - and the quality of the adapter is exactly the same as the OEM one...when I pulled the old one out,held them up together in the sunlight....couldn't tell the difference in the material used. The Metra unit has the same gold sparkles as the OEM adapter

The touchscreen HVAC is excellent - responsive, works as expected. Kind of like the ability to change the color theme - I have them all green like the exterior right now.. You just plug the CAN connector that was plugged into the OEM unit into the matching connector on the Metra unit - this was not in the instructions...and the Metra unit has several extra connectors that you will not use.

Pros:
- Looks great - HVAC controls are more responsive that typical Ford OEM touchscreen controls - Took it to the dealer to show my sales guy yesterday - he was impressed by how clean and how well the HVAC works
Cons:
- A little more work could be done on the install guide for the HVAC. I just guessed that the CAN connector from the OEM unit went into the correct Metra connector....basically just telling me that only one connector was needed and what it looked like would be enough.
