Not right for a 2015 Subaru Forester
2015 Subaru Forester
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
I give this 1 star b/c it does fit in the dash. Unfortunately, the stereo does not sit flush with the front of the trim piece. The stereo has a small plastic lip around the face plate, which prevents it from sitting flush with this piece. I contacted Crutchfield and was informed that a few other customers have experienced the same issue. Unfortunately, my new stereo looks just like I installed it (that's a LOL moment). Crutchfield did tell me, in the meantime, I can try to trim the piece to make it fit properly, or I can leave it as it is. I'm not sure if that means they are going to try and get a proper fitting kit, or if I'm just going to have to deal with it. I guess only time will tell. The best I can tell you is that if you have a 2015 Forester, this kit will not make a new stereo look professionally installed.
Pros: Quick delivery, friendly customer service (although not definitive on a solution)
Cons: The piece is not right for this vehicle.Crutchfield response on July 26, 2016 Thanks to reviews, like this one from DanD, we continuously review our current installation kits and consider other options from different vendors to make sure we have the best ones for your vehicle. Our vehicle integration buyer, Darren, is taking a closer look at this kit. Also, aftermarket car stereos often come with a thin trim bezel around the face of the radio. It often can be removed to allow the new stereo to work better with a vehicle's dash kit.
