Adequate , but not perfect by any means.

Crutchfield customer from Church Hill, TN on 8/16/2019

2001 Ford Taurus SES

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

If you are looking for "adequate" then this kit will serve your needs. However if you want quality appearance and/or an all inclusive lit, this not not the one for you. The appearance of this dash plate is very "cheap" it does not match the rest of the vehicle console's finish. Instead of being printed on , the indications are stickers . The kit come with NO mounting hardware. It all has to be reused from the oem unit, which is not always possible due to the mounting clips breaking. I recommend paying a little more and buying the kit that comes with the control knobs and mounting clips pre installed

Pros: Fits in opening, inexpensive

Cons: doesn't include the most basic hardware, finish, stickers

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This dash kit fit perfectly in my '03 Taurus. The included instructions showed me everything I needed to do for installation. The only problem I had was that I was supposed to reuse the hardware behind the knobs and transfer them to the new faceplate. The original screws did not fit and could not be used. The kit comes with 6 screws already holding the parts together and I was able to use two of them for mounting the old pieces to the kit. It fits securely enough for me but it's worth knowing before purchasing. I would still buy this again.

The last time I put a radio in a car was years ago when I was in my twenties and we would cut the dash or create our own fillers. Now putting a radio in my daughter's car using this was so easy to switch with the factory dash.

Pros: Simple to use.

Cons:

Got to say is wasn't the first time I installed a aftermarket dash in my car it was very complicated at first but the one I got from Crutchfield it sample it came with a instructions and was a help installing my dash kit. And it took two days to get my package that was really fast so for that I give five stars.

Great basic stereo

Tim A from plainfield, IL on 3/13/2016

2003 Ford Taurus SES

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

This is a great basic stereo. It has great sound with my stock speakers. It was also very easy to set up. The Bluetooth works great, I don't have to do anything when I get in my car to sync to my phone. I can use my hands free with my phone with ease.

Pros: Easy install, and Bluetooth features work great!

Cons: No major cons, if I had to choose one it would be the lack of text options to display on the screen.

Easy install

Steve from edmond, OK on 3/12/2016

2000 Ford Taurus SE

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

Went together well and fit nicely and the plate is solid. It has built in supports for the radio which is nice since the factory support bracket needs to be removed. There was no way to get the radio mounting sleeve tight because of the funky depth around the opening and the location of the supports. I would have given this a 5 star but one of the dial labels was not perfectly glued on.

Pros: Solid Good Fit Looks factory

Cons: Hard to get the radio installation sleeve in place The factory screws for the controls will not work, you have to buy larger screws. Order the Metra screw kit

Looks good

Kent from minneapolis, MN on 3/10/2016

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

It does the trick, but was not really that easy to install. Finally paid an installer to finish the installation.

Pros: Looks like the original

Cons: The instructions (and the radio removal tools) left me in the dark, (and with a gaping cavity in my car that I had to pay someone else to complete).

Trim panel & install kit

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This trim panel & install kit is a nice way to allow you to integrate an aftermarket stereo to a stock looking climate control panel. The instructions including the "Master Sheet" made this install straightforward. Thank you Crutchfield for doing the research to make sure this all works together.

Pros: Clean integration for aftermarket stereo

Cons: None

The rear defrost switch is also located on the front of the kit.
