Not too great

Written By D Love, Maryland on Monday, July 08, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This is not too good of quality. Decent but not good. Does not line up A symmetrically like the factory dash kit. I would recommend only because I think this is the only brand that makes the dash kit for 2011 - 2013 Hyundai Sonata. I had to do some cutting to get it to fit properly. Try your hand...
Pros:
Nice black glossy finish and brushed silver finish to match factory dash.
Cons:
Does not line up A symmetrically like the factory dash kit. Had some issues that required me to o some cutting/shaving to get a precise fit.

It works

Written By Anonymous, Flower Mound, Texas on Monday, July 01, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The product worked but it has some things that I wish I had known or thought about ahead of time.
Pros:
It works...
Cons:
In my SE, I lost the brushed metal look to this glossy version. The alignment near the console is off and the top left corner doesn't stay popped in. I've tried resetting it a few times with no luck. Also, I don't know why there is a second whole on the right side across from the hazards. It took away from it.

It's OK.

Written By Paul S, San Jose, CA on Thursday, May 09, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I was a little scared after reading the reviews. But, after some modification and tweaking, I got the think to look OK. I wrapped the side/vent panels in a brushed "aluminum" vinyl so that it better matches the car interior. I installed this as a "double din", and there were a few annoyances with the fit & finish. When you install your factory ac/heat assembly, there is a small gap in the center top, below the cross section below the radio. I found some black weather door sealer and cut to fit to fill in this gap. Also, the cross piece below the radio opening is kind of flimsy, and not ridged. So, it flexes and mine had a slight bow up. I fixed this by laminating a ridged piece of plexi underneath, to give it strength-problem solved. I also had to lightly dremel the edges of the ac/heater and blower control nobs, as well. Not much, but if you don't the nobs will stick and not operate smoothly. It was free, and not many options out there. I made it work, and I'm happy with it. On a sidenote, if you take out your factory stereo, you'll lose your BlueLink service. Just FYI-- it's not mentioned anywhere.
Pros:
Not "horrible"
Cons:
Poor fit. Gaps around stereo and heater/ac control panel that need to be filled. Cross piece below stereo needs to be reinforced to prevent flexing and bowing. Sanding/adjustment needs to be done for control nobs holes, otherwise they will stick and not operate smoothly.

Hyundai In-dash Receiver Kit

Written By Anonymous, Oklahoma City, OK on Monday, May 06, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Worked great, kind of shinny instead of the dull black finish the OEM had so its a little distracting but I'm used to it by now. Had to remove all of the components from the old unit to install on the new one. Keep a good count of where each screw goes some are longer than the others. Overall, I give it a good rating, have to install it just right to fit, but once installed is does look very nice.
Pros:
fits the car and makes the finish look professional
Cons:
doesn't match the exact finish the OEM had.

Not as bad as I thought

Written By TomJ, Kirksville, MO on Thursday, February 21, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I read the reviews on here about this product and was very skeptical about buying it. In the end I only bought it because I had to have it to put my new stereo in my car. After getting my order and looking the kit over, it's not near as bad as I feared from the reviews I read. It's definitely not top notch. They could improve it quite a bit to make it look better and function better but still not horrible. I'm mostly happy with how everything turned out. Biggest problem with it was the the brackets they sent with it didn't want to fit right so I used the factory ones instead.
Pros:
only one for my car, not horrible looking or fitting. free with my crutchfield order
Cons:
wasn't a perfect fit, lot of work to put together, cheap material.

Poor quality and poor fit

Written By BW, Norfolk, Va on Saturday, August 04, 2012
 
I have a 2012 Sonata SE 2.0t and wanted to upgrade my factory radio. This was one of the only dash trim panels I could find. I am very disappointed in the quality and the fit of this product.

Firstly, a double DIN head unit must sit behind the dash panel (as in it won't be flush with the dash panel), because the opening isn't wide enough for the head unit. It doesn't look smooth, you can see tiny cracks where the head unit isn't flush with the panel, and the recessed position of the head unit interferes with use of the buttoms along the inferior border of the head unit.

The climate control portion of the car was too big for the opening of this panel. I had to use high grit sandpaper to sand down the edges of the panel to make it fit.

The high gloss black pieces that house the a/c vents are too big and had to be sanded down on the bottom so it would fit in the dash. Also, the a/c vents aren't flush with the panel either, they are recessed.

The OEM dash panel had brushed metal finish. The high gloss plastic contrasts with the brushed metal finish elsewhere in the car. Now there is the matte black finish around the head unit and climate control, the high gloss black for the a/c vents, and the brushed metal trim everywhere else in the car. It just doesn't mesh well with the interior of the car.

I cannot recommend this product, but as it is the only one out there for this year sonata, I will use it. I hope another manufacturer releases a dash kit soon.
Pros:
After some sanding I was able to put it back in the dash of my car. If you are creative, you should be able to make it fit as well. With a little dremel tool, some sand paper, super glue, and determination, you can make it work for your car.
Cons:
See above for details: Poor quality plastic. It is not the brushed metal finish that matches the rest of my car. It doesn't fit in many different locations and required sanding down of the plastic to make it fit A double DIN head unit sits behind the dash panel, it is not flush with the dash panel, which would be much nicer looking and how the OEM radio was. The finish of the plastic surfaces starkly contrasts the finish of the rest of the car.

Doesn't fit correctly

Written By Marc S, Port Orange, Fl on Monday, January 23, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The brackets don't fit the dash correctly, and kits fit and finish is poor. I ended up keeping my factory radio, this is a terrible product
Pros:
None
Cons:
Product has terrible fit and finish, the brackets can not work with the dash on my 2012 sonata se. I was very disappointed and had to give up and pit the factory radio back in.
