Worked well for single DIN in Ford Escape

Written By JamesA, Denver, CO on Thursday, December 27, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
This product worked well for installing a single DIN Kenwood into my wife's 2008 Ford Escape. However, the instructions were confusing and it took me a while to understand how the receiver and pocket connected directly to the car and not to the dash unit. The Escape has the necessary holes drilled and hardware already in the dash. The hardware and holes seem to have no OEM function. Once this was understood I had no problems. The unit is now installed and looks very professional IMO. The color matched the silvery-grey color of the dash very well. The texturing is slightly off, but only noticeable under close inspection.
Excellent color match to 2008 Ford Escape. Very good fit; looks professional.
The Scosche instructions were confusing and sparse. Could do with an upgrade from Crutchfield.

Unbelievable oversight in design

Written By Matt, Bellingham wa on Friday, July 13, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Like the previous review there is only one option to replace the faceplate if you are upgrading the stereo in an Escape. It was my bad judgement not to read the reviews first. I've always had good luck with Scosche fitting well first time. I can not fathom why they didn't use the existing method of mounting (reciever mounted to faceplate). Shame on you Scosche for making such a low quality, but very important, oversight. They're lucky it's the only game in town otherwise I would have returned this product and gone to another brand. I don't have a problem custom fitting a stereo but why buy a factory adapter that doesn't adapt?
Only silver faceplate on Crutchfield. Oh and it was free with my new reciever
See above, or other posts. Should be a zero star product if that was an option

Only Choice = Poor Design and Quality

Written By Aaron, Calhoun, LA on Friday, June 08, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
The only positive aspect of this dash kit is that it is the only option for replacing the HU in the 2nd Gen. Escape. Other than that, the negatives just stack up. The silver color does not match the original silver in the vehicle and thats just the beginning. This kit completely changes the way the HU is mounted in the Escape. The OEM stereo mounts to the dash face, NOT directly into the dash. This presents a problem since the instructions, or lack thereof, say to mount the stereo to the dash kit. There are holes in the dash to mount the new stereo, but you will have to come up with your own hardware. Once you do manage to mount the stereo, it is very difficult to get the dash kit opening to line up with the stereo, especially if your new HU flips down to put in a DVD.
It works, but just very poorly
Color does not match OEM, terrible mounting method, lack of instructions and hardware

Not designed properly for 2010 Ford Escape

Written By JMan, Long Island, NY on Monday, May 16, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
This may be designed for earlier models, I do not know. It appears to be correct, and it does fit, the problem is the methods to attach the new radio are not correct. In a 2010 Ford the radio is actually screwed directly into the plastic that this piece replaces, however this piece does not account for that, the only way to make it work even remotely was for me to bolt the radio directly into the car by drilling my own holes and using nuts and bolts but then the odds of getting it to line up with the opening on this kit were very slim and it looks terrible.
