Easy install,matches interior trim.
Pros: Easy install
Fine. Did not need most of it, but I appreciate the parts for cheap.
Installed a new head unit as an upgrade to my daughter's 2009 Honda CR-V, and this kit helped a lot. However, the screws provided for attaching the mounting brackets to the head unit were too short to even go through the mounting bracket of the kit, much less actually attach the brackets to the head unit. You have to find/cut to length your own mounting screws.
Pros: Face trim looks like OE material Mounting brackets match OE mount locations
Cons: Screws to attach mounting brackets to head unit are too short to use.
This dash kit did the job for me, but it's pretty cheap plastic, and the instructions are pretty awful. It didn't affect the security of my receiver being installed, but one of the tabs that clicks into the frame that goes around the face of the receiver was nearly broken off. The OEM stereo had metal brackets securing it to the dash, so it's a wonder why those wouldn't be made, and if they are made, recommended.
Pros: Did the job, but...
Cons: Cheap plastic, directions are not clear.
The mounting materials worked well once I figured out the process. The instructions are junk, referring to a non-existent image and using inconsistent terminology. I installed a single DIN Sony MEX-N5200BT.
Pros: Fits very well in 20111 CRV LX
Cons: Instructions are very poor, beginning with no clear directions on how to assemble the pieces! (Missing diagram)
Fit in my 2011 cr-v, Only modification was snapping off the middle plastic piece used for single din installation and the piece on the back, easy by looking at instructions. Finished product looks good, like it came in the car.
Pros: easy assembly, fits perfectly, looks almost seamless,(little space all around, veeeeeery little, not horrible, just had to mention it, fyi)
Cons: Says to file down after removing extra plastic pieces, you really dont need to, doesn't affect installation.
Fit and finish in dash is good. Dash clips fell off to never never land behind the dash, it's ok because they really don't hold anything it seems. Dislike any kit I have to break/cut parts off of but that's because it's a one mold for all design and the parts are all hidden by the bezel (user must trim the parts that would support the single din areas to install a double din radio) The front bezzle (cover around the radio area you press in last) could be a little tighter fit, on my older Panasonic 3200 it had a small gap at the top, seems to be hidden now it's in. In general though we will see as time passes if it needs a little dab of glue to hold in as it's mostly just a pressure fit with no real clips. The install instructions are good, but printing them out was a pain (had to sink to fit letter size paper), be nice if they included a hard copy like the old days. For the money it is worth it I guess. Installed in 2010 CRV base model with a Panasonic 3200 DVD radio
Pros: Fits Works Price Working with Crutchfield is still the easiest
Cons: Dash clips fall off if you ever need to remove Front double din bezel could be a better fit Trimming required for double din install
I had another brand install kit in my girlfriends CRV. I could not get it to fit and look good at all. I cut it, used other brackets and cut it some more. It never fit. I ordered this one and it fit perfectly!!!
Pros: Fits and looks great
Like it a lot liked it a lot easy installation happy face
Did it work? Yes, but required a bit of cutting and glue to get it to fit together and hold. Felt very flimsy and cheaply made. Doesn't really match the CRV plastics around it. But once in it fit snug and first look too terrible.
Cheap plastic, not sturdy and doesn't quite fit right. Not worth the price. No detailed instructions.
Cons: Cheap plastic and doesn't fit quite right.
This kit made everything so simple! I LOVE my new stereo!
Everything I need to install the Pioneer AVH-X5800BHS was included in this kit. Kit was easy to figure out and install with no issues. This kit made the Pioneer AVH-X5800BHS look like it was a factory install.
Pros: Complete kit of parts and instructions, no additional hardware required. Easy to install.
Cons: No Cons
Product was easy to install.
Pros: Factory look
Made very well and fit perfectly. Color and texture match stock interior plastic, looks oem.
Pros: Matched interior well, fit good and quality made.
Cons: Didn't use the included side mounts, were flimsy compared to metal mounts that came with stock stereo. I used those instead and install worked fine.
Nice setup in car. Looks like factory installed
Pros: Nice setup in car Looks like factory installed
It did the job and it came free with the receiver.
Pros: I fills the hole and allows you to mount the after market radio in the car. It does not squeak or rattle when going down the road.
Cons: The plastic is not an exact form to the surrounding dash. It is slightly protruding above the surface in the middle and slightly recessed at the corners. It also did not allow me to use the metal mounting frame that came with the radio. To add options to the back of the radio I will have to disassemble the dash like it was first time install.
Fits the car well. The color and texture of the plastic trim matches the adjacent trim in the car. Once I assembled it it was easy to install. The directions were my only gripe. They are horrible. The first figure (the one for attaching the sides) mentioned in the directions isn't actually there. That was a little frustrating, but once I figured it out on my own it was pretty easy to do the rest.
Pros: Quality product. Fits perfectly in my car perfectly.
Cons: Terrible directions.
It does not spruce up your dash in terms of appearance, but it works for my new car stereo. Perfect fit, and the additional compartment is a plus. The back screw is a little long and protrudes slightly within the additional compartment but is not obvious.
Pros: It fits and provides additional compartment for CDs or even the remote or your phone.
Cons: No glaring negative features as of this writing.
Easy enough to install. Fits great and looks good.
Cons: Unclear instructions
This was a great dash kit and looks great after installing. It's amazing how much it matches the factory dash.
Pros: Easy to install, matches the factory dash.
OMGSH I have installed so many radios -but this kit was absolutely miserable to figure out. The instructions are useless.
Pros: It worked after a few temper tantrums
Cons:Crutchfield response on 6/1/2015 Whenever you encounter a problem with anything you purchase from Crutchfield, especially a situation like this, please contact our tech support team right away. They can help you solve the problem and get the stereo installed and working!
All of the parts were there and allowed me to install a new Alpine DVD Nav system in my wife's 2011 Honda CRV. Instructions weren't very clear but looked pretty good once installed.
It took some trial and error to put things together, the instructions could have been a little clearer. Interestingly enough, when everything was done I actually ended up just using the double din bezel. i had the adapter put together and found I needed longer bolts to mount the radio. I was getting ready to go get them, and noticed that the Alpine double din radio actually fit perfectly in the existing frame from the Honda, it just needed a bezel. I took the one that came with the kit, trimmed off the mounting tabs, added 2 drops of superglue and was done :)
Pros: Pretty good construction Fit both the radio and the space in the Honda
Cons: instructions could be clearer radio mounting bolts were too short
simple to use
Cons: you need some DIY ability.
The instructions are incomplete, and wrong in some ways. It's unclear how to attach some items, there is no "Figure F" to refer to, and I'm supposed to attach a rear support bracket that's not included. I'm supposed to make one? Might as well make the entire kit. The screws that came with the radio don't have the reach to fit thru this new bracket. The kit screws don't hold tight.
Pros: Can be made to work
Cons: Essentially, pretty bad fit, and poor instructions.Crutchfield response on 2/2/2015 We forwarded this review to our Technical Support team for follow-up. Lifetime tech support comes with every Crutchfield purchase.
The fit and finish is good but not perfect when compared to the original Honda radio frame. There is a slight warp to the frame that is that can be seen when it is installed against the existing dashboard panels but it is not a big deal. The instructions supplied by the American International Company are poorly written and hard to follow, I had to re-read them several times and work with the part on the radio for a while before it made sense. The frame assembly instructions were separate from the Crutchfield MasterSheet instructions. In contrast, Crutchfield's instructions to disassemble and reassemble the dashboard panels on the MasterSheet were very clearly written. Too bad Crutchfield didn't write the instructions for the frame assembly.
Pros: Low cost, overall satisfactory frame.
Cons: Poorly written instructions.
The instructions are terrible. They do not go in order and hard to read
Pros: Looks factory
Cons: Bad Instructions
The instructions and associated illustrations were so poor it took me longer to figure out how to fit the correct bits together than it did to take apart the dash and install the new receiver. If you have not done this before and / or do not know if you have a DIN or ISO size receiver, you can try randomly fitting the bits together....statistically it can take between 5 and 60 minutes....but hey, you may get lucky! Better that the manufacturer take a lesson....and if there is a completely impractical pictorial instruction, only then add words.
Pros: Once installed fit nicely and appearance is consistent with the rest of car dash
Cons: Very poor assembly instructions.
matches pretty well with the rest of the trim. had to modify it for double din. bit of a pain but still a good product
Pros: fits, matches wll
Cons: had to modify for double din
Easy to assemble and install, but the finish doesn't quite match and the attachment points are plastic instead of metal, which makes me wonder if it might not crack and break over time.
Pros: Easy to assemble, fits perfectly.
Cons: Color and texture aren't quite right, somewhat flimsy feeling.
Good fit. Would be a 5 if you didn't have to modify for a double din
This kit did not provide and exact fit for our 2009 Honda CR-V Ex. However our installer was able to file and sand it to a flawless fit. The result is excellent.
Pros: after installing, it matches trim in car
Cons: needed resizing to fit
Make installation alot easier.
Pros: very good.
Looks like it should in dash
