Color matched surrounding plastic of dash and radio well.
CHRISTOPHER, Cookeville, TN
Average Customer Review(s):
Fit my truck good.
While this is a necessary item, the instruction need to be more detailed. Also, some of the mounting holes had to be enlarged to access holes in the radio.
Made the unit look like a factory install
Matched the interior trim of my '09 Ridgeline perfectly - both in color and shape. Great instructions. Easy install.
Fits well. Some of the materials feel flimsy and the color is off slightly from the factory car plastic. Overall, it looks good and it does what it's supposed to do.
Color was great easy to install buy it!!!
Color matched surrounding plastic of dash and radio well.
Don't waste your money on the junk on other sites. TRUST ME! They don't work near as well as this product. This fit better and looked more like a factory install than the one I got elsewhere. You can tell that they did their homework when it comes to their products from Crutchfield. I will never try to cheap my way out on this stuff ever again. Can't wait to start on my Civic with the products from Crutchfield. Lesson learned here for sure!
Pros: Better quality, better fit, nicer looking and maintains factory dash lines.
Perfect fit definitely a plus that it was color matched to the dash
Pros: Color matched easy assembly
This dash unit went together easy enough but one of the slot holes to remount the system was blocked by the plastic. radio is held w 4 screws vs 5 screws. The plastic is kind of thin and suspect it will eventually crack going from hot to cold temperatures.
The product "works". I would classify this as "bare minimum" necessary to complete a quality installation. This is being installed in a 10 year old vehicle so I can see where the product may be on the outside of the product cycle and designed to fit multiple vehicles. The brackets that hold the unit in are very flimsy and you kind of have to get the pieces assembled loosely and precariously and get a screw started and with the right amount of cajoling you can get it to not have too big of gaps around your double din head unit.
Pros: It works with a bit of patience and dry fitting and trial and error Gray'ish Color match very good
Cons: Plastic mounting brackets are a little flimsy and "bendy" You have to kind of figure out the way the brackets are installed, instructions are a tad lacking.
This is a piece of garbage.Nothing lines up like it should. The plastic side brackets and face plate are too thick for the stock mounting screws and wont line up to the holes on the stock metal radio brackets.The screen of the Pioneer radio gets hung up on the face plate when opening.
Cons:Crutchfield response on 10/11/2017 Our Tech Support guru, A.J., reached out to this customer and explained that he needed to remove the factory metal brackets before installing this kit. Once this was done, the new receiver was a perfect fit. The customer asked us to update his review from 1 star to 5 stars. Whenever you encounter a problem with anything you purchase from Crutchfield, please contact our Tech Support team right away. Lifetime tech support comes with every Crutchfield purchase.
Color match was perfect in addition to fit.
Not very sturdy, plastic mounting is warped and not aligned, lugs that position the tray below the radio are fragile and break off.
Cons: Flimsy, barely adequate.
Work prefect for 2007 Honda Ridgeline. All parts included, fit JVC KW-M730BT and stock compartment perfectly.
Very nice once you get it assembled. The pictures in the instructions are AWFUL. It took two people about 20 minutes to figure out how to get this assembled on my new head unit. Once it was attached, it has worked perfectly. I just wish there was better instructions.
Looks nice color matched perfect
It worked and fit my application and color almost perfectly. Directions were a little vague but I figured it out.
fit perfectly looks great
Looks nice, works well. The original bolts were not long enough when I installed this, because it went from the thickness of 1 metal bracket to 2 plastic brackets. The one bolt hole did not line up. I had to bore the one with a drill bit to get the bolt in.
Cons: Need new bolts, might have to modify to install
Color match was perfect. Seemed a little flimsy, but once everything is mounted, it'spretty solid
Easy install and the color/texture matches perfectly. Makes the install look seamless.
Putting this together took more time that taking off door covers and installing speakers. Once together it is flimsy and cheap. It doesn't seat tightly with the Honda Dash container. Once installed things look 95% okay, but it doesn't instill alot of confidence compared to the metal dash kit that held the stock stereo in.
Pros: It works okay
Cons: Flimsy, didn't line up great with the stereo screws. difficult to assemble. Instructions were poor.
After installing the head unit and dash kit, I was unable to get the dash trim back where it belonged. Left a 1/16th gap between the dash trim and the dash along the top by the radio. Factory radio had thin metal tabs holding it in, new radio has thicker plastic, this trim kit added more thickness...had to apply after market narrow body trim to cover the gap. Not thrilled.
Pros: Easy enough install.
Cons: Does not allow proper reinstall of dash trim.
Worked well and easy to follow instructions.
Great fit and finish, worked flawlessly and easy to install
Pros: Good price , easy installation
This mount was great. Very easy to install and only took a few minutes. Looked like it was made to fit my Honda except for one thing, it was the wrong color and didn't match the interior. I ordered grey and it came to me in black, strangely enough that color option wasn't even available as a choice. I didn't have time to send it back for the right color since I'm moving out of state, so I installed it anyway.
Pros: looks great and easy to install
Cons: wrong color
It matches the color of my dash - fits without gaps. One problem is that the bottom part is supposed to have some bolts that connect it to the top part - but it didn't come with them (even though the directions said it did). I called Metra and they said they'd send a set.
Pros: - Color matches - Fits dash without gaps
Cons: - Didn't come with all the right hardware (but Metra is sending it after calling them)
Looks great and matches the Honda trim very well. Everything fits well after install. The side plates have so many holes its hard to figure out wich ones to use and those same side plates are real thin and flimsy. Overall once its mounted it seems sturdy enough however.
Pros: Color match and fit
Cons: lots of holes to figure out
Perfect fit, instruction is easy to follow. Highly recommended product.
Pros: Perfect fit.
Worked as promised. Perfect fit and ease of installation. My son and I had great time installing his new receiver.
Pros: Ease of Installation and directions were spot on.
Worked fine for my 2010 Ridgeline. Mount kits have more holes than Swiss cheese because they have to accommodate many different models of receivers. Just be patient with the instructions and you'll be fine. I did not tell my tech-savvy daughter about the new receiver. When she got into the truck, it took her a full minute to realize that there was something new in the dash. I think it was because the mount kit made for a very clean finish, and the trim was a great color match.
Pros: Match to original Honda plastics was excellent. Maintains original design appearance. Accommodates under-receiver tray.
Cons: Appears flimsy. Assembly diagram unclear. Parts not keyed to diagram.
This kit made my install easy. It interfaced with both my head unit and vehicle perfectly. Color and finish were a match to the vehicle to give an OEM look.
Pros: Fit and finish
This dash kit is super clean. It makes my kenwood double din look like a factory install. Color matches my dad perfectly. I can't say enough good things about this product.
Pros: Everything is perfect.
this was the hardest part of installation. The universal guidelines are very subjective and it took me awhile to figure out right mount for my set up.
Pros: -cheap -universal
Cons: -very difficult for Hondas -no guideline specs for Hondas
It was free with the purchase of my head unit, so I can't complain too much. However, it's a little flimsy. A few times when I was assembling it, I thought I was going to break the plastic, but I didn't. I used Metra install kits many years ago and I remember them being more well built.
Pros: - Fit, and color matched.
Cons: - Feels cheaply made.
Matched my Ridgeline perfectly! Easy to install and I had never installed a stereo before.
Fits great and loots factory!
Pros: Great customer support from Crutchfield.
Cons: A little confusing on how to install, could use better instructions.
Excellent!! Makes the new receiver look like it was there all along.
Pros: Easy to install. Fit perfectly . Looks like I did a professional job.
Matches decently easy to put together
Cons: Not very sturdy Hard to make unit level and even in kit
This dash kit made my install look like it came from the factory. Love it
The color and the shape matches the existing frame and no one noticed that its not the original part. It comes with manual installation and all the accessories and it just work perfect in my car (Honda Ridgeline RT 2012). I bought it with the AVH-X5500BHS DVD and everything looks really nice. I also appreciate Crutchfield costumer service and the great support that they provided
Pros: The same color as the other pieces in my car and no holes or openings in the receiver kit
Taupe color is powder coated on black plastic. Color matches okay to dash trim, but the hazard button/storage tray under is slightly darker than this unit. The fit is good. The quality of materials is questionable.
Pros: Fit; Included at no charge with my head unit
Cons: Quality of materials
Kind of flimsy but it works. Ended up modifying factory mount and using this faceplate.
I had to see this kit to believe it, when i opened the Metra package, my immediate response was " you gotta be kiddin me! I went from hvy duty factory steel brackets to these plastic flimsy cheapo's. I commend Crutchfield for offering " free install products" but in this case guy's i wld have gladly paid for an upgrade to metal brackets, after all why wld the factory put heavy duty steel in if they were'nt needed! As soon as i can find a quality aftermarket steel bracket ,this kit is going to the landfill. Remember Crutchfield your good name can get attached to junk products very quickly, i'd dump these vendors yesterday. Free is not a "good price " when a customer is upset.!
Pros: None, absolutely none. I've seen better made plastic in Fisher-Price toys.
Cons: I have never had to write such a scathing review.. Even if this Metra kit had metal brackets for my Dbl-Din unit i wld still write it, not even a day after install & the taupe finish is perm scratched & looks like something out of a garage sale, Crutchfield... seriously you folks need to offer an upgrade as an option even if its an extra chrg. Factory off road capable vehicles dont need toy plastic brackets on expensive head units. If they did, dont you think they'd put em in first?
The radio looks nice once installed, but kit mounting required some heavy modifying (i.e., sawing and drilling) to make it fit the JVC KWHDR81BT receiver correctly. The mods were out of sight so didn't affect the look, but the hidden brackets had to be cut down and new holes had to be drilled to match up with the receiver.
Pros: Looks nice in my Ridgeline and could easily pass for OEM. Fits the Ridgeline fine but so-so on the receiver mounting brackets.
Cons: Cheap - plastic versus OEM metal. Not a good mounting fit and required mods to fit correctly to receiver.
Fit perfect in my 2007 Honda ridgeline and easy to install
Fits properly and the collar match is great.
Looks good installed, good color match and fit-up in my Ridgeline. I was disappointed that all parts are plastic. A bit flimsy.
After studying the tiny drawing of the mounting bracket for a while I finally figured out how it actually went together. The written instuctions were no help at all. Once assembled properly the installation looks fine.
Pros: Inexpensive, Makes for a profesional looking install.
Put it together in a couple minutes. Installed easily. Looks great!
Pros: Matches perfectly. Easy install.
What I recieved was good and a call to Crutchfield returned a quick answer. Kit did not contain parts or instructions for speedometer connections, blue wire connection on ant kit, or radio controls on steering wheel connections.
Out of everything that I used to put the head unit in, this piece gave me the most trouble. The screws from the head unit were too short to go through the plastic and catch a thread in the radio requiring a run to the parts store. The assembly of the kit seems rather flimsy but worked. Once again I had trouble with short screws when mounting the whole thing into the dash because the plastic from the kit is about 1/4" thick. I wasn't able to catch one screw and had to find a longer one. The others BARELY caught.
Pros: Looks clean and original.
Cons: If this was made out of thin metal, there would not be any issues with installation. I would have paid extra to have a higher quality, metal install kit to make everything go smoother. It works but least DIY friendly piece of the whole install.
Very nice fit, looks exactly as expected, color matches perfectly.
Pros: fit and color
Cons: little confusing to put together
This product is not easy to put together. Also after installing the instrument trim panel of my 2007 Ridgeline does not fit flush. This product came free with my in dash GPS unit but it leaves a lot to be desired.
Pros: Color matches well.
Cons: Instructions are very vague. Trim panel does not fit correctly after install.
The directions were not real clear and there were many bolts missing from my kit. Called Crutchfield and they offered to send out more bolts but my dash was already apart so had to run to the hardware store and spend $3.00 on additional replacement bolts.
Pros: It fits and looks like factory after the install.
Cons: Bolts missing from package and only fair instructions. Question the build quality based on it being plastic and the factory one is metal.
The customer service advisers were great. I used the online chat feature to gain information on the product and they were prompt in responding. I purchased this for my 2010 Ridgeline so I could have an 8" screen installed in it for my onboard computer. The interior dimensions were totally wrong but the outside (front face) dimensions were correct to the Double Din specs. I asked the customer Service Rep to double check the measurements so I would not have to order a touch screen and have it go to waste. Now this mis-measurement has halted my project trying to find more 'custom' solution. Maybe it works for a Double Din aftermarket radio/head-units, but if someone wants to install a touch-screen, please be aware of the 'internal' dimensions.
This adapter works perfectly in my Ridgeline. Looks factory
This unit is just not up to the task for a double-DIN unit. Look at the length of the plastic mounting ears and ask yourself just how long a heavy double-DIN unit will last before those ears snap off. I've gone through two of these so far, as soon as I take the Ridgeline on a washboard road, the vibrations simply snap the ears right off. I've tried reinforcing it with metal angle irons and I get a little more life out of it, but this is simply an inadequate design for the weight of a double-DIN radio. Due to the distance between the radio and the mounting holes, I think the only real solution would be a full metal mount kit with enough strength to support a double-DIN radio. Plastic just doesn't cut it in this case.
