Decent unit

Anonymous from California on 5/21/2017

1994 Toyota Corolla

Works well and looks good. As noted the screw holes don't align perfectly on a 7th gen Corolla ('93-'97) but you can drill a small hole and substitute a sheet metal screw for one of the holes. The rubber gasket is tight and -presumably- won't leak. It's something I'll look for in the next down pour. Installation note: In my '94 Corolla the antenna wire from the head unit actually connects to another wire that goes through the pillar (ie frame). You cannot pull the antenna wire out from the antenna side until you disconnect this and if you try you might end up pulling the whole wire out. Look for this connection near the driver's side vent. I found it easier to remove the console. If you do pull the whole thing out (I did), it's still possible to get the wire down through the pillar -- there is a small opening near the fuse box.

Works well but fit not perfect for 1994 Toyota Corolla

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The instructions that Crutchfield included for radio removal were spot on. Removing the broken antenna proved to be much more challenging than anticipated as it was held in place by clips and could't simply be pulled out. Removal of gauge trim, vent with light controls, and the drivers side kick plate were needed to get the old cable out and the new one in. Once in, the mounting screws did not align perfectly as noted in other reviews. I installed the top screw in the factor location and drilled for the second screw. This is still a substantially less expensive replacement than OEM but isn't without issue.

Pros: Inexpensive replacement option Improved radio reception significantly

Cons: Replacement more difficult than indicated Mounting screws don't align correctly for a 1994 Toyota Corolla DX

Great Improvement

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

better than a broken cable, pretty crappy though.

Pros: i have some radio.

Cons: every station has static, the cord was about 2 feet short, and the antenna itself feel very flimsy

GC Subaru Impreza

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This antenna was really nice looking right out of the box, but when it came to installation on a subaru it needed to be modified quite a bit in order to make it work. This included using a drill to enlarge the holes for the OEM screws to fit, so much so that part of the plastic broke off and I had to plastic weld the top back together. Second was the plastic sheath for the antenna rod to sit in needed to be removed pretty much entirely for installation on my subaru. Another problem was the rubber seal provided, it had shrunk and did not fit around the base of the antenna properly not really providing a good seal and overall doesn't look good. Once installed the reception and sound was very good, The cable length is just barely enough to reach the receiver. I wouldn't recommend this to someone with a GC/GM/GF subaru as it would be better to pick up a good used OEM antenna instead. That being said, the overall quality of this product was very nice with the exception of the seal.

Pros: Sound & Reception quality.

Cons: More of a universal product than a car specific product.

1993 Toyota Corolla
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This antenna is a good replacement, however, on the 1993 Toyota Corolla we bought it for, it was not an exact fit. The holes for the base that attaches to outside of the car do not align exactly with the factory holes of the car. No problem, though, attach the antennna base by aligning the lower hole with the lower car hole. For the upper base hole, simply drill a small pilot hole for a matching sized replacement black machine screw. Install the machine screw through the base and into the car post. Not a perfect fit but adaptable.
