Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
It's rather thin and leaves a gap on the bottom. But I don't have time to stare at it while driving and doesn't affect the unit so no biggie!
Pros:
Easy to install.
Cons:
A little thin and gapped on bottom. Thought maybe put it upside down but I guess that just the way it is, I'll live with it!

2003 Camry XLE - Easy install, Good Fit

Written By OldMan, Tennessee on Saturday, May 31, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I used this to install a double DIN JVC receiver in a 2003 Camry XLE. It was a little difficult to clip the brackets on the front frame, but I figured it out. It was a perfect fit. The upper and lower "bars" are a little flimsy, but it will suffice. The quality of construction isn't as good as that of the radio rackets and bezel that was originally in the vehicle. The stereo and this bezel look very snazzy.
Pros:
Good fit. Looks good. Relatively easy to install (except brackets).
Cons:
Top and bottom pieces a little flimsy.

Good Kit.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Good enough to get the radio installed. But not outstanding.
Pros:
Has all the parts you need. And with some extra work I was able to make an OEM looking install.
Cons:
The brackets fit, but not perfect, and they were plastic. I am picky, but I commute in my car 50 miles a day, so I can't stare every morning at a radio that vibrates, is crooked, or does not look OEM. So I reused the Toyota (quality metal) brackets. Also, the mount screws were ~1/8" too short. I also had to grind off a little plastic to make the bezel fit. Fell short of my expectations, but not terrible.

Decent. Not perfect

Written By Brian, Greenfield il. on Tuesday, January 07, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
A little flimsy around the bottom edge if the radio. It bows and you can see between it and the chassis of the radio. I can live with it but mg OCD is a little tuned into it
Pros:
Ease of install
Cons:
Flimsy in spots

Install kit

Written By Daryl B., Yakima, WA on Wednesday, August 07, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The unit matches the curvature of the dash fairly well, however there is a gap on the bottom, and at the top right corner. The bottom edge feels rather flimsy, and I was worried about it breaking. To the casual observer it doesn't look too bad, and it does allow you to put in a single or double DIN stereo. The factory original color is a bit off, but that is probably due to fading of the original dash.
Pros:
Allows single or double DIN stereos, matches the curvature of the dash
Cons:
gaps, flimsy plastic,
