If we are being honest this product does its job... not the best though. It's a cheaper and a uglier look to your car but the pro is you get to have a aftermarket headunit. The only problem is the installation instructions are quite vague and poor. The clips they give you are so difficult to put on and keep on while trying to install them before they snap and break. And the HVAC controls are the worst, apparently before you install the new one you have to have your stock one set a certain way before unplugging it (which of course wasn't mentioned AT ALL), otherwise the new one won't work properly which would've been nice to know before I went and sold my stock... I have it installed and it works, but like I said it has some kinks to it from what I described above. The only thing holding in the top part of the kit is one screw but it sits in there far enough without falling out and not much rattling. But with the HVAC it controls itself, if you have it on A/C at 60 degrees Fahrenheit it'll still blow heat just from it being screwed up. I know this is a long review and probably just seems like a lot of complaints but I've read others and they all seem to have the same issues sooo if you want an aftermarket in your TSX there's not really another route to go that's not back breaking. Also just adding in there that the price is absurd.

Pros: It lets you have an aftermarket headunit

Cons: Everything else

Decent fit and finish, but bad instructions

T from UT on 7/10/2018

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

The dash kit fits well and doesn't seem to exhibit any problems just yet. I was a little upset that the instructions called for panel clips, but these very clips made it impossible to install. I eventually just tore the panel clips off before installing. I have no problems with rattling. Maybe I just installed the panel clips wrong (the instructions did not specify which direction to install the clips), but they seemed unnecessary. The instructions also called for 8 panel clips, but there were only 6 places to install them. I know it doesn't take a genius to figure this out, but I really read the instructions and don't appreciate the lack of attention to detail on Metra's part. In addition, neither the Metra nor the Crutchfield instructions mentioned removing the two screws to relax the panel clips on the factory radio unit itself before prying. I almost broke the mounting points while prying it out because of this! I also was surprised to have to cut out some pieces of the dash interior to accommodate the install. $100 for a cordless Dremel made me a little salty, to be honest. All in all, the kit works fine. It could just use better instructions. It doesn't look as nice as the factory unit, but it's nice to be able to listen to music while in the TSX.

Pros: Fit fine after some tailoring and cutting

Cons: Poor instructions. Useless panel clips (don't use them!)

Looks great and enabled upgrading of the sound system from the 12 year-old outdated system. Avoid having to use a touchscreen to lower the fan on the A/C. I had it professionally installed so I can't speak to the simplicity of the installation. So far, so good.

HVAC Control Module Looks Not So Good

Mark from Wamego Ks on 7/3/2017

1999 Chevrolet Silverado

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

After receiving and installing the aftermarket radio with this aftermarket HVAC controller, I yanked it out and sent it back. The aftermarket HVAC controls look and feel really cheap. The trim piece that extends across the dash is interrupted by this module plus I kept worrying about a module failure and having to purchase the install kit once again just to get a replacement HVAC module. There are people on video online doing a doube din install on the TSX with the factory HVAC controls. It requires getting a little creative with your aftermarket radio (ie cracking it open) but with all the mechless units on the market now, it looks pretty simple and the end result looks really good. I wish Crutchfield would sell this dash kit without the chinzo looking HVAC module. The plastic dash adapter that actually holds the radio doesn't look too bad and that would really bring the cost of the install kit down. I understand this is probably unlikely because it would mean CF tech support would have to coach customers on how to open and hack up their brand new head units. Still for the DIY'er this kit without the HVAC module would be great. I've looked at other outlets online and I haven't found it available for sale that way. Kudo's to Crutchfield for taking back the radio and issuing a refund with no fuss. I've always had great experiences dealing with Crutchfield and this was no exception.

Pros: Finally! A way to install aftermarket radios in the factory location on 1st gen TSX's.

Cons: Cheap looking HVAC module nullifies the appearance enhancement of the aftermarket radio.

Nice fit and and well made however the texture of the trim piece doesn't match the cars dash as it should. It is nice to have heater control without having to go through the old radio.

Pros: Nice upgrade

Cons: Looks aftermarket and not stock.

Thanks To Acuras HVAC that's integral to the radio, I'm stuck with buying this to get stand alone HVAC controls if I want to use an aftermarket radio. Crutchfield had the best price on this by far. I'm hoping the quality is good. [ Mark  May 27, 2017 ]

Q
I have a 2004 Acura TSX and i bought the Pioneer AVH-4100NEX radio, which should fit in my car from what your website os saying. My question is what install kit do i need to buy? I know the Metra 95-5812 Double DIN Installation Kit should work in my car but I'm not sure if this particular install kit will fit both my car and the radio i just bought. If this Mantra kit isn't the correct kit for this radio, can you tell me which one i should purchase?

The Metra 99-7809B dash kit allows you to install an aftermarket single- (2" tall) or double-DIN (4" tall) stereo in the 2004 Acura TSX dash panel, while maintaining all heating, ventilation, and air conditioning controls. The Pioneer AVH-4100NEX is a double DIN, so it should work just fine with the kit. For more details or to discuss further, please reach out to an Advisor directly by phone (888.955.6000) or online chat. Thanks!
[ Larry  Oct 15, 2017 ]  Staff

The Metra 95-5812 works for your double din installation. The negative thing is that you will probably have to cut out a couple of plastic parts out from the opening in your dash before installing the radio. The instructions tell you what to remove. I did not use a rotary tool like the instructions. I used a razor knife with a brand new blade. Wasn't too hard.

Thanks for your question. This kit should fit any aftermarket receiver. It includes gear for single DIN or double DIN. Single DIN receivers are all approximately 2" tall by 7" wide. Double DIN is 4" tall by 7" wide. For additional details on fit or installation please contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat.
