Looks Great

Looks great and OEM. No issues with install. I'd recommend to look on a particular popular auction site to buy a silver plastic rim piece that just stick's on the bezel, it give's a nicer look and feel.

Pros: OEM look

Cons:

For a 2015 Mazda 6 this was a PERFECT fit. Some other folks have commented on the inset of the radio at the base but I do not believe they where using this adapter for a Mazda 6 in my year - again, PERFECT fit.

Crutchfield customer from Maple Valley, WA on 9/25/2018

2014 Mazda 6

IMO the radio opening size top to bottom is a little big. I fit both a Sony and Pioneer into 2din opening, and there was a larger gap both top and bottom than I would have expected or preferred... not finger gap, but definitely business cards could slide through. Also the opening could angle out instead of being a tight 90 degree fit. Reason being is that as designed, the Sony units with the volume knob sit nearly against the left side of the metra trim piece, causing you to have to partial turn and release the knob to get it turned. Not a great situation.

Not perfect but can be modified

Crutchfield customer from Phoenix, AZ on 6/14/2018

2014 Mazda CX-5

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

As others have noted, this kit positions the aftermarket unit deeper in the dash than the stock unit. The reason why it does this is to ensure that a double DIN unit will fit in the space behind it, though I can't verify that that is completely necessary. The face of the factory unit integrates an upward tilt that aftermarket units are missing. In order to accomplish a flush fit, this kit has to be modified with a Dremel or hobby knife. Although not ideal, the end result in amateur hands is not terrible. I left the lower ledge intact but trimmed the recessed sides so that they would be parallel with the face of the kit. Then I had to put new holes in the wings to accommodate the tilted position of the unit. I thought that the gap at the bottom of the unit would bother me more than it actually does. I'm not sure that this approach will work with a full double DIN chassis, but my unit (Sony XAV AX5000) has a single DIN chassis behind the touchscreen, giving me pleny of room to maneuver.

Pros: It fits well in the dash.

Cons: It has to be modified in order to achieve a flush fit with the aftermarket stereo, which is a shame.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I ordered this for my mazda CX5, with Sony touch screen head unit. I wanted to make the Sony sit closer to the front so i used a dremel tool to remove some plastic so it can move forward more. so the Top of the head unit is now flush with the dash kit. I'm thinking of tilting it up but that might cause more glare and need to drill more mounting holes on the side plates. over all the material finish looks good and it fits perfect inside the factory housing. There are no other choice so I guess this is not bad.

Pros: Good material finish

Cons: Pending head unit, some modification might be needed to make it sit more flush.

Glaring design problems

Matthew from Florida on 12/27/2017

2015 Mazda CX-5

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I'm a bit unsatisfied with this kit. It does the job of mounting an aftermarket radio, but has a few major shortcomings. The first and most obvious on attempting to fit parts together is that it sets the radio's screen back about two inches from that of the stock radio, which feels wholly unnecessary and if your radio has a volume knob, expect it to be almost flush to the side of this kit. The second is that it appears to angle the screen slightly down, which affects visibility and feels strange when using it, due to the slight level of inversion. The third, and least offensive, is that the opening gap is too tall. This is very obvious when the radio and kit are being test-fitted out of the box, but not very noticible after installation, and certainly minor compared to the other two flaws. It does the job for now, but I find these problems, especially the extra recessing of the screen, to be glaring and unacceptable, and I'll be looking around for something that's a bit more sensible in its design.

Pros: Allows you to mount an aftermarket radio in your vehicle.

Cons: Sets the screen farther back than it really needs to, reducing accessibility. Angles screen oddly, making it feel unnatural and alien when in use.

didn't include the screws to attach the pieces together (sides to the front). Tried to use screws included with head unit, but they didn't fit (too big).... Luckily, I found some screws in my supplies that worked after I cut them in half. Other than that..... fine I guess.

Perfect fit Mazda 6 2014

Rosario from Sunnyvale, CA on 4/24/2017

2014 Mazda 6

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Fits perfect in Mazda 6 2014 using the Pioneer 4200NEX model. I had no issues attaching it to the headunit and installing it in the dash. A+ The little gap people are talking about is, I'm assuming, there because the headunit still needs to open and close when inserting discs. but that little gap is practicly invisible and still looks really clean

Pros: Perfect fit for the Mazda 6 2014 and up (unless mazda changed the double din size after 2014 which I doubt since it is a standard size)

Cons:

Opening a little tall

Crutchfield customer from Appleton, WI on 1/30/2017

2015 Mazda 6

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

As others have mentioned, the opening is just a little tall. The spring clips which came with the kit were slightly oversized. I transferred the original clips from the car in which I installed. The original clips fit well.

Pros: Finish matches the finish on the rest of the car.

Cons: Double DIN opening a little tall. Included clips did not fit.

Gets the job done

Elijah from Pittsburgh, PA on 1/1/2017

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Worked fairly well. Left a slight gap above and below the head unit which isn't noticeable unless you look for it. The screws provided didn't set in that cleanly but it holds steady and the screws aren't visible so it's not a big deal.

Pros: Multiple holes available that allow it to fit a lot of head units

Cons: Left a small gap on the top and bottom (barely visible)

Dash kit for 2015 mazda6

Crutchfield customer from Lafayette, LA on 12/30/2014

2015 Mazda 6

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Fits perfect, was very easy to install on my 2015 mazda 6 however the radio leaves gaps in this bezel. So if you buy an app radio 4 (which is a pretty solid radio and I'm loving it) you will end up with a gap on the top or the bottom since it's just not quite big enough to fit the bezel.

Pros: doesnt look stupid

Cons:
