Your 2012-up Ford Focus is a great car, but the stock center console makes it difficult to upgrade the factory radio. Metra's dash kit allows you to install a new single-DIN (2" tall) or double-DIN (4" tall) receiver in your car's dash panel, while maintaining all heating, ventilation, and air conditioning controls.
The matte black finish is a perfect match for the color, texture, and contours of your car's dash. Warranty: 1 year.
Note: Most vehicles will require additional installation parts please identify your vehicle if you haven’t done so. You can also call an Advisor for more information.
I was really looking forward to this piece to finally get an aftermarket stereo in my Focus, but when i installed it 2 things bothered me, 1. The vent trim pieces from the stock stereo do not fit this. 2. The buttons light up Orange, which is an increbible oversight by Metra, since the Focus lights are all white and cyan, i ended up using electrical tape to cover up the light to keep it from distracting me. Other than the the kit works, i dont have the sync system so 3 of the buttons do nothing.
Pros: Fits good Works Double Din
Cons: Lights are wrong color Vent trim not interchangeable with factory
great fit, looks good, am very pleased
I used an AXXESS adaptor, did not get a steering wheel sync adaptor as I don't like Ford's Sync, found it annoying. Metra fit fine, LEDs too bright but the unit died after a few weeks (lost display for time, temp and date), it was replaced under warranty. 2nd unit works but you can't change the time, only the emergency light and lock/unlock button function, all the others don't work. Also Ford has two radio antennas and you have to choose which to use. Another problem is Ford uses an impedance matching chip in their antenna assembly which will not likely match any aftermarket receiver, it can't be adjusted. This is a problem with receivers, most (all?) don't have an adjustment for impedance matching with the antenna so you can't optimize the signal and improve reception. Is this a big problem? Probably not considering the small antenna craze now in vogue that Ford is following, those small antennas just can't produce the signal of larger antennas so you can't get the stations you could with older style antennas. And you can't just screw in a larger antenna as there is no way to match impedance to take advantage of more signal strength, I tried that and it didn't work. If anyone knows of a solution for this I would like to hear it. I removed the Metra. I have 3 Toyotas and all have much better reception with the stock radio than the Ford Focus.
Pros: good fit, instruction were easy to follow
Cons: Lost most of the control button functions, only emergency lights and lock/unlock worked. LEDs too bright at night.
It does fit, and will have to do until something better comes out.
Pros: Fits good
Cons: The up button works half the time. Doesn't change colors, really needs to be blue.
Fits like it should
Pros: Fits and looks factory
Worked perfect buttons are nice and it was as simple as could be
Cons: Wish lights changed colors
It's a pretty good fit kit but they should have made the lights on it blue to match the other dash lights. Also configured it to be like the original and use the original trim pieces on the a/c vents. Why buy new ones. Oh yeah to make more money off the pricey fit kit. And the buttons could have been more like the original, nice and not bulky.
Pros: Good fit
Cons: The lights are red
The fit and function of this adapter kit is great. It allowed me to easily swap my factory Sync system for a Parrot Asteroid Smart. Unfortunately for reasons I don't understand, the buttons are very odd looking and Metra used amber for the backlighting when the rest of the car has light blue (as I think all Focus's are). It really looks out of place at night and really distracts from what would be a very factory looking install. Also, the "locked door" indicator LED is blinding at night. There really is no other option to get a 2DIN unit in a 2012+ Focus so you will just need to deal with the buttons as it is otherwise a great product.
Pros: Fits perfectly and does a great job of retaining the factory Sync Display. Easy to install with good directions.
Cons: The keypad doesn't look stock at all. Buttons are not like factory style and the backlighting completely different. Door lock indicator is too bright.
Fits like factory unit.
Pros: easy to install.
Cons: none that i can find.
I installed this on a Ford Focus ST. Everything worked as advertised and it looks like it came with the car. There're a couple things to be aware of though. The mounting brackets are made of plastic. If you over tighten the mounting screws, you can end up squeezing the plastic apart. Don't over tighten. Second issue is that there is a little light that displays when the doors are locked. This light is pretty bright and sometimes annoys me at night. Also, all the lights on the dislpay buttons are amber color. Other than that, I'm happy with it.
Pros: Looks like it came with the car; easy to install
Cons: Plastic, don't over tighten screws; one very bright door lock light
Awesome fit, easy directions, no complaints.
Pros: Looks stock, great directions, seamless install
