Fits...with a bit of work

Scott from Kansas City, KS on 11/1/2017

2013 Subaru BRZ
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Installed on a 2013 Subaru BRZ. Followed the included instructions by cutting out a bit with a dremel. The fit is not perfect, but acceptable. To get it to fit right, the OEM head unit brackets are only holding on with 2 screws (instead of 4), and these plastic filler brackets line up with only 2 holes of their own, one of which takes some wrangling to install the screw.

Pros: Serves its intended purpose

Cons: Takes a bit of custom work Head unit held less securely than before

To all FRS, 86 and BRZ owners there is cutting required for this dash kit. It will not fit with the factory brackets . Just call Crutchfield and they will email you further instructions. Once that is done it will fit perfectly.

Pros: It fills out the dash and looks great.

Cons: The only con is that they didn't mention to me that the dash kit requires cutting. I would've saved time during installation.

I have a first generation Scion XB. This was my first time installing a car stereo. All the mounting holes aligned perfectly as well as the fit on the dashboard once completely installed!!!! I did not have problems with gaps or misalignment. Easy to install!!!

Pros: Great product!!

Cons: None

Not great

Jason from Jackson, MS on 7/14/2017

2005 Toyota Matrix
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Did not work well for my application, a 2005 Toyota Matrix. Screw mounts were too thick to go through the kit and the bracket to get a purchase on the radio. Tried grinding to make the plastic thinner, kit broke because the plastic was too thin. Ended up using adhesive to put the kit where it needed to be. Look for a different kit.

Pros: Fills in the side spaces.

Cons:

Fills the gap very well.

Cephus from Liberty, MO on 7/1/2017

2007 Toyota Sequoia
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Necessary parts but seem a little flimsy. They work well once installed. The lower screws are harder to put in because it doesn't sit level on the side of the head unit. Grinding the metal on the mounting bracket maybe useful if you have the time.

Pros: Fills the gaps on the sides of the head unit well.

Cons: Seem flimsy

Gary from Suffern, NY on 6/18/2017

2010 Toyota Corolla
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Needed to modify with a Dremel in order to fit the factory bracket in my '03 Highlander. Even then, it's not quite right even when using the factory screws. Although it fills out the sides, there's still a small gap on the top and bottom when installing a Sony head unit.

Pros: Filled the sides pretty well

Cons: Needed a Dremel to modify Small gaps in top and bottom Would've paid more for a better fitting dash kit.

Vertical Curve in dash not matched

Owen from Tucson, AZ on 6/5/2017

2006 Scion xB
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Needs work. Got it to fit my car OK (2006 Scion xB), but doesn't really match the vertical curve of the dash opening (this dash kit is vertically straight while the dash curves back). About 1/8 inch difference by the time you get to the top of the radio opening. Once installed, though, you really don't notice the difference (only upon close inspection), so... Better than nothing.

Pros: Fills space to right and left of radio in dash opening

Cons: Vertical curve in dash opening is not matched.

Fits a 2014 Forester

Sandra from Silverton, OR on 5/21/2017

2014 Toyota Camry
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is the correct install kit for a 2014 Subaru Forester. The Crutchfield site doesn't know that. It also takes a considerable amount of fab to get it to fit around the stock brackets. Much more than the instructions point out. You have to just put it together and work with it. The good news is the plastic is soft enough that you can work with it with a good pair of scissors instead of a Dremel. It is also a little flimsy once it is installed on the head unit & before it is in the dash fitted into the bezel. Be careful as it can bend or break easily. Once it is fully installed it is fine. The dash bezel keeps it nice and snug.

Pros: It fits the dash of a 2014 Forester

Cons: Takes a lot of cutting to make it attach to the head unit. It is a little flimsy until it is fully installed

2005 Toyota RAV4
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The front-facing part of this works _pretty_ well, though it doesn't quite mount flush between the dash and the new deck. The bigger problem was that the pre-formed mount holes didn't fit with the JVC deck I purchased. I ended up only using one hole (would've liked to use at least two), and I had to cut off the bottom hole and cut away some of the bracket to get these to fit the deck. They're in fine now, but it could have been an easier process.

Pros: Simple, possible to modify if needed

Cons: Needed to modify to fit deck Not quite a flush fit in the dash

Brian from Florida on 4/26/2017

2004 Toyota Tundra
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Quality of the part is great. Instructions for it to work with my model car were inaccurate and as a result I damaged one end. I will reorder and modify to work now I know how. The spacer does not fit flush to the head unit. You need to have a spacer to push it flush. This isn't crutchfileds cause just the product and being to many models compatiable.

Pros: Price

Cons: Fit and instructions

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

So be prepared to use a Dremel on these. They do NOT fit until you cut 90% of it off. Once I cut off the part that was in the way of the mounting bracket they ended up looking fine and did the job. Just in case you don't know, these fill the half inch space on the side of your deck.

This piece is to fill in the empty space on each side of the head. The holes where it lined up on my unit were untapped so I had to find and alternate way of securing it.

thehate from Orting, WA on 3/25/2017

2013 Scion FR-S

Very flimsy and weak, even worse after you have to trim it to fit. Would not recommend this if you can fine an alternative.

Pros: fits, after careful trimming

Cons: not strong enough to really survive long. not pre trimmed, cheap weak plastic.

Had to cut the plastic brackets before installing

Charles from Canoga Park, CA on 3/23/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Better than nothing, but the fit and finish of the panels that show is not great (rough edges / slightly different appearance from other side piece). Funny thing is the behind the scenes parts of the kit look like they are machined or molded very well. Maybe I just got a bad set... but it works!

Pros: It works. Fills in the gaps for a professional appearance. Seems like decent quality plastic.

Cons: You have to modify the bracket depending on which car you're installing them in. Fit and finish is not the best.

They do the job. Not spectacular but sufficient. They fill in the gaps around the edge of the head unit and they look ok. Not entirely factory looking but acceptable.

Pros: They are easy to use and fill the gap around the edge of the head unit. They are cost effective. You can't really install your head unit without them.

Cons: They look a little cheap. Not quite factory.

I give this 3 stars only because the bracket holes do not line up properly with the Boss head unit mounting holes and I had to reconfigure them with a dremel tool. Once done it fit very well in my dash module of a Toyota Highlander and looks factory spec. If it wasn't for the alignment problem it would be 5 stars.

Pros: looks good, fits good in dash module

Cons: Holes did not align with Boss head unit mounting holes and had to be reconfigured

It fitted ok, but not axactly line up with the screw holes on the new head unit and it's not align well with the old brackets. It come with 4screws each side. I can only used 3 of the screw on each side. But all in all it's not bad, if you're not really nitpicking. It's got the job done.

Pros: Look good with head unit after finished installation.

Cons: Not align well with new head unit. It's flimsy. It's like$1000 car with $3000 wheels on it.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It is a great product.

Pros: Everything on the radio Works as I inspected it exept for the USB cable when you connect your phone as I have an iPhone I connected and it doesn't take the link and I don't know how exactly that works but doesn't recognize the link from my phone. Gaps on the side when you finish installing it it's got a couple gaps on the sides and that's kind of annoying and that's the only thing I didn't like from it

Cons: I think that the hardware for the installation needs to be rearranged so that it disappears the gap from the sides on the radio. Thanks.

This was simple to display and made my new double DIN touch screen head unit fit flawlessly inside my 2005 4Runner SR5. Be sure to get the correct kit for your particular 4Runner trim as there are 2 different kits and they are vastly different.

Pros: Fits perfect, Easy to install

Not a big fan of the Metra dash kit for this particular vehicle. It was easy to install but the fit and finish wasn't as good as I hoped for. The radio didn't fit flush with the front of the kit. And I followed the instructions provided with the kit. It doesn't look horrible just not flush.

Daniel L from Los Angeles, CA on 8/19/2016

The screws that came with it were too short when attaching with base support plate. I got so fed up with the screws not locking in that I went to a local large hardware store to buy a new set of screws. Then it worked great. Also, it leaves some gap on the side that was a bit too much for my liking.

Pros:

Cons: Short screws - you may have to get your own like I did to make it work Small visible gap on sides - it's not bad but it annoyed me at first

Needed these to fill in the blank spaces of my Double Din install with my dash. Screws into the head unit and fits in. Being plastic, they are a bit flimsy so be careful screwing them into the head unit and moving them around.

Pros: -Free with Crutchfield purchase -Fits into blank slots on side of Double Din head unit

Cons: -Plastic, can be a bit flimsy. Handle with care. -Not a perfect color match if that bothers you.

Poor fitment

Chris F from TX on 7/12/2016

2003 Toyota Sequoia
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I was awfully disappointed with this kit. It had to be cut, ground to clear the mount flange and also the surrounding structure. The instruction pictures were particularly useless. With the Pioneer deck I ordered, I had to go find longer screws and grind the length down because the kit took up too much screw length. In the end, it didn't account for the slight offset in the Sequoia radio, and there's still a gap on the far side. I'd rather pay extra for a decent kit.

Pros: It's black

Cons: Poor fit Poor instructions Could not use unit provided screws

Can't ask for much more

The product fits well in my 2003 Toyota Tundra. There is a slight gap but it is so dark behind the radio no one would notice it except me because I installed the equipment. Can't beat the price and good instructions that lead to a clean looking installation. I'm not much for giving 5 star ratings but there really isn't anything to do to improve this product.

These brackets were provided free by Crutchfield so I can't really complain about them for this installation. It did take me about a half hour to figure out the fit with the stock brackets which required me to cut off the "arms" of both of these brackets in order to get everything to match up correctly. They also impeded one of the bolt holes on each side of the receiver so I couldn't use all four bolts to attach the stock brackets to the new unit. But with three bolts on each side and all four front bolts holding the unit in place I haven't had any issues with the receiver moving around. They also filled in the front gaps nicely on each side of the new receiver to provide a clean look.

Pros: FREE! Provide a clean look to the new, smaller-faced unit

Cons: Needed some trimming to fit with the existing brackets. Slightly covered a bolt hole so I couldn't use all four bolts on each side of the new unit.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Know that if you buy this, you'll need to spend 15 minutes reading the instructions on what portion of the dash kit needs to be trimmed off in order for it to fit correctly. Some of the modifications can be made with a hacksaw, but others require a Dremel or similar. The Sony radio I purchased came with screws with around 1/4" of threads, which is barely enough to get one thread in on the factory mounting brackets, and much too short to attach this dash kit. Unfortunately, they use a very non-standard screw (flush mount, blunt end, but with sheet metal threads). I ended up finding some machine screws that worked, but not until after I drove all over the city. Finally found something that ended up working at a local big box hardware store. This dash kit really should come with longer screws - or be flagged in Crutchfield's system to indicate that in certain stereo/car combinations, longer screws are required. It surprises me that the Sony radio came with the super-short screws, since I would imagine that 90% of all stereos require some type of dash kit which is impossible to attach using the default screws. In this case, I'm not sure whether it's the fault of the dash kit or the stereo... I'm blaming the dash kit.

Pros: Fit the dash Holes lined up perfectly Closes the gaps on both sides of the stereo

Cons: Makes it impossible to use the manufacturer-provided mounting screws. Requires hacksawing or Dremeling to install Kind of cheap looking.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The dash kit fills the holes between the dash trim and the new receiver. It doesn't look particularly good. Especially since the left-hand piece doesn't really close the gap very well.

Pros: Right side of the kit fit very well and closes the gap between the radio and the dash trim.

Cons: The left side of the kit does not fill the gap between the dash trim and the radio. It is also loose - the design is such that it can be moved from side to side pretty easily. It also looks a little bit on the cheap side.

Does Not Fit without a lot of trimming

Shawn from Westbury, NY on 3/30/2016

2005 Toyota Matrix
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I followed the instructions and was extremely disappointed with the results. They should not include the Matrix with this bracket. It does not fit at all. If you have to do a lot of trimming then the thing doesn't fit. You will end up with something that won't be custom fit and you will have to settle for a small gap on each side. If you are going to get that result then why bother buying it from here. I have bought a radio from Crutchfield in the past and had no problems. It is this model that doesn't fit with the given bracket. Just be prepared to make adjustments if you have a 2005 Matrix.

Pros: It was free

Cons: You have to trim your heart out just to get it to fit. It won't be a custom fit either.

The advised and supplied equipment was exactly what was needed to fill the gaps left over from the head unit being replaced. It looks like it grew there; both natural and professional looking.

Pros: With a simple cut, which is explained in the instructional brochure, the factory brackets do not interfere with the Metra bracket placement.

Cons: Not Metra's fault at all. Depending on your equipment model you may need to have additional hardware on hand. I discovered that both the old and purchased head unit's provided screws and or bolts did not have the length to secure both of the brackets to the new radio.

ThomasC from Missouri on 1/2/2016

2006 Toyota Matrix
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Works ok to fill in the space between the head unit and factory trim panel. However it took a good bit of modification with a Dremmel tool to make it fit around the factory brackets in my 2006 Matrix. The end result is not as tight of fit as I would have liked. Would have scored 3 stars due to the mod effort and final fit but top notch service from Crutchfield pushes it back to a 4.

Pros: It was free with the purchase of the head unit and came with good documentation.

Cons: Takes time and patience to trim, test fit, trim more & test fit again repeatedly until the desired result is achieved. Don't be in a hurry and be forewarned there will still be a small gap on either side big enough to hold a credit card. It's right on the edge of being acceptable vs unacceptable. But after all the work to get there, when I finally reached the last step and snapped in the factory trim panel I saw the gap. I voiced a few choice expletives then decided it was good enough.

Acceptable

It's OK. Fills in the gaps on both sides of the head unit, but sits too far back against the front. Everything fits for complete installation but will end up modifying in the future for more flush look.

Cons: Needs modification for a more authentic factory looking install.

Worked perfectly to fill the gaps on the sides of the Clarion double DIN head unit I installed in my wife's Toyota Matrix. It did require some trimming to fit around the factory mounting bracket though it was easy enough to do with nothing more than a sharp utility knife.

In the end, it worked out and looks very good. However, to install my new Pioneer AVH-X2700BS, I had to modify these brackets. Had to cut off the ears to make it work with the factory mounts. Luckily, they were very inexpensive and easy to cut so although I was expecting a factory fit from the go, a little modification was no big deal. Like I said, the look good with a tight custom look.

Pros: Inexpensive. Final fit good.

Cons: Has to modify.

This definitely helped fill the void and fit the double din to the dash shape. However, i had some difficulty getting the dash back on correctly. The two spacers do not hug the radio and had to be wedged to get the dash back on. I had some trouble getting both sides wedged in at the same time. I'd get one side done, and then the other side would pop out. Eventually got them both in place but not after scraping and prying with a small flat head screwdriver.

Not needed for Alpine INE-W927HD when installed in '07 Sequoia with fa

ChrisR from Wmbg, VA on 11/17/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I installed the Alpine INE-W927HD into my wife's '07 Sequoia with the JBL audio package. Her vehicle had the factory installed In-Dash Navigation Unit with Face Code E7006 [OEM 86120-0C160 or 86120-34030]. The mounting hardware on the factory GPS didn't have to be modified in any way to be removed and then placed on the Alpine GPS head unit. The factory mounting brackets fit on the Alpine in the exact location as the factory GPS no matter if it's measured from the top-to-bottom or front-to-back so I was able to mount the new Alpine in the Sequoia without using the Metra 95-8202 Dash Kit that came with my Crutchfield order. This made the Metra 95-8202 Dash Kit unnecessary for my aftermarket head unit installment which is the reason I gave this 5 stars because it doesn't get any easier than that. I know this isn't exactly reviewing the Metra 95-8202 Dash Kit product but I rated this high so that anyone having the same installation with a Sequoia or similar, they don't have to bother with this mounting hardware at all.

Pros: Not needed during my head unit installation process, making the replacement go much quicker.

Cons: Crutchfield could update their database to ensure certain superfluous equipment isn't sent with orders. This confuses the installation process and causes unnecessary modifications to the factory equipment/hardware. The instructions told me to grind the factory mounts' guiding pins so that they could be properly placed on the aftermarket head unit, when I didn't need to since they actually helped guide the mount on the new head unit perfectly.

I bought this dash kit to install a Pioneer AVIC-8000NEX into my 2013 Subaru BRZ Limited. It's not a drop in piece. You will have to trim some of the plastic in order to get the mounting holes to line up. Other than that, once installed, it looks fine and does what it's supposed to do.

Pros: Fills in the gaps and blends in with the dash.

Pioneer AVIC-8000NEX

Jose from Sterling, VA on 4/21/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I was looking for the recommended pieces to install the Pioneer AVIC-8000NEX and saw this dash receiver kit so I purchased it. When it came time to install, I ended up having to trim the piece to make it fit so it wasn't 100% direct fitment. Other than the trimming, I have zero issues with the dash kit.

Pros: Finish on front piece is great and didn't throw off the head unit color scheme.

Cons: Not direct fitment, will need to trim piece for Pioneer AVIC-8000NEX.

Follow the instructions and call the great people at Crutchfield if you are stumped. Easy to install with patients. My advice is to get a 20 pack of washers for your mounting bolts to the dash and you can space your deck out and perfectly to match your stock location. A $3 trick to make a pro install.

Pros: Matches most dashes perfectly. Tight spacing to decks. Free with purchase of deck.

Cons: Fits many vehicles, so be patient to get your fit looking factory installed.

Works as advertised, though I own a 2008 Scion xB and the surrounding dash panel has a outward curve to it, I just wish these spacers would conform to that curve cause they do leave a little but of a gap. but otherwise it looks good.

Pros: fits and the mounting holes work with the radio I bought (Pioneer AVH-X8500BHS)

Cons: wish it conformed to the curves in the dash.

I hate gaps!

I wasn't sure of the necessity of of this bracket until I put it on and installed the receiver. I had to cut and trim most of it off because it went into my Tundra but it was easy to cut off. When I installed the receiver with this trim kit I realized that this was to make my receiver look nice and almost factory installed. No Gaps or seams.

Pros: Looks nice installed. I didn't have to cover gaps and open spaces with black tape as I have had in past installs.

Cons: None

Does the job

crosscro from Escondido, CA on 9/15/2013

2004 Toyota Highlander
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Basically this was just two filler pieces for the sides of the new double din unit, as Toyotas original radio, was wider than the new unit and these were filler pieces. While they did the job, as intentioned, the pieces didn't match up with any of the holes (in back) in either the new unit or the original brackets, so they essentially are held in place.

Pros: Does the job, basically for what it was made for.

Cons: No common holes in bracket or unit to attach to unit when installed. Realize that with so many variations in units and cars, these might be considered universal in that they fill the space in the sides as intended.

Like all universal in dash install kits, it will still leave a bit of desirable aesthetics. It installs pretty simple. Still some modifications need to be made, depending on the mounting brackets on the vehicle of choice.

Pros: Ease of installation

Overall Very Good

p g from Easton, PA on 7/31/2013

2005 Toyota 4Runner
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Overall this is a decent unit. The fit behind and around the the dashboard was perfect as was the angle of the head unit, which in this case was a Pioneer FH-X700BT. The seams between the factory trim and this unit was flawless. The color is semi-gloss black which also matches well with most headunits currently available. The reason for four star rating is due to the fitment around the headunit itself. The inside lines of this unit are perfectly straight so you will only achieve a perfect fit with the headunit if it too has perfectly vertical side walls. In the case of the Pioneer FH-X700BT this fit was not perfect because its sides have a slight curve to them. Thus, this unit made contact at the center line of the headunit but gadually opened to a 1/16th gap as you approached the top and bottom. That said it was consistent on both sides and still has a very professional finish. At the end of the day I would recommend this unit.

Pros: Easy to install Color Matches Blends with dashboard perfectly Blends with straight sided headunits perfectly

Cons: Does not blend very well with curved sided headunits

Double DIN In-Dash Kit for Toyota Matrix

TimP from Fort Collins, CO on 3/5/2013

2006 Toyota Matrix
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Kit supported an acceptable installation of an Alpine INA-W910 Navigation Receiver in a 2006 Toyota Matrix. Requires some adept trimming modifications with the correct Dremel bits for proper fit to the (required) mounting brackets from the OEM radio. If you are not experienced with this finesse work, get some help. Once trimmed properly, installation is a breeze. While the sides of the visible plastic trim pieces are well fitted to the curved outline of the car's bezel, there is a small space visible at the top of the radio once installed that is not perfect, but to the casual eye is not objectionable.

Pros: Good adapter for Matrix with some finesse plastic modifications.

Cons:

Clean look!

Initially it was difficult to determine which kit to purchase. The site kept coming up with a kit that I couldn't figure out how it could possibly work. I almost purchased the wrong kit and ultimately my selection was a pure guess.

SeanM from Boston, MA on 9/4/2012

2007 Toyota Matrix
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Installed in a 2007 Toyota Matrix. The instructions that came with it were not all that helpful, especially the part about taking a grinder to some unspecified part of the factory mounting brackets to get the kit to sit flush. Sure, I have a Dremel and the grinding stone, but cutting away some pieces of the plastic kit pieces seemed a whole lot faster and easier than grinding the metal brackets. In the end I spent a few minutes with a utility knife whittling away little pieces of plastic off on one of the kit's pieces, and had to remove a much larger chunk on the other of the kit's pieces. So it works, it doesn't quite look "factory" but it's not noticeable unless you stare, and it's really the only option for installing a double din unit into a 2007 Matrix, so there you go.

Pros: Pretty much the only option for my car. Looks okay no that it's in

Cons: Had to do a lot of trimming to get it to fit right. Instructions totally not helpful.

Mike from Beverly Hills, FL on 5/23/2012

2005 Toyota Matrix
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

WOW. This thing didn't line up with any of the holes on factory brackets in my Toyota Matrix. I had to snap them in half and was just barely able to get one screw on each side to hold these in place. It's like it would have almost lined up but I would have had to use a hacksaw on part of the bracket to make it work. Structurally it's not ideal but at least aesthetically (which is what your going for with a dash kit) it looks decent. The instructions do say you need a dremel. But I don't recall seeing that anywhere on Crutchfield's website.

Pros: surrounds the gap left by an aftermarket double din stereo.

Cons: See Above.

2004 Toyota 4Runner
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Very well might be a better fit with most radio's and vehicles but was not great by any means in my '04 Toyota 4Runner. I think it was the moving faceplate that affected the look of the radio itself because these pieces are at the back of the face and don't come flush. The pieces also didn't come flush with the original trim around the head unit either, the pieces stuck out about 3/8" from the back of the trim so it looked odd not being flush with the base or outer trim around the head unit.

Pros: Simple and quick installation.

Cons: Too universal for more specific applications.

The two side pieces left about a half millimeter of gap at the top and bottom of the dash. It's not a full surround kit so that was probably a given. However there's some small gap to the left and right. Not much it's very minor. But that's probably due to the trim plastics because it's not a snug fit so I'll have to work it again until it sits right. So only 4 stars because I have to keep working at it to get it to sit just right.

2006 Scion tC
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Fits pretty good in my Scion Tc. I didn't have to trim it at all. I did have to drill some new holes on the mounting bracket so the radio would sit back far enuff where my door would close. It does fill in the sides nicely for a clean look.

Pros:

Cons:

Takes work to fit a Matrix

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I had to take extra care in trimming this Receiver Kit. The instructions were not very accurate. However, when I took my time with it, and trimmed carefully, it worked great and really made my receiver look "factory."

Pros:

Cons:

It does take a little work..

2005 Toyota Sequoia
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The mount for my Toyota Highlander required a little extra work and a lot of patients. The instructions aren't entirely accurate and trimming is required. After I inverted the brackets from the way it was shown in the manual, and trimmed them as well, they still didn't sit well in the vehicle. I ended up bending my factory metal brackets to tilt-up the Pioneer so it split the gap (top/bottom). I would consider this one of the worst aftermarket mounts among those I've used and it is by no means designed specifically for the Highlander.

Pros:

Cons:

Fits perfectly

Fits, but you'll have to work with it

JRB from Boise, ID on 4/21/2007

2006 Scion tC
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

When installing this kit into my 2006 Scion Tc, I ran into some problems. The original installation instructions really don't work well with my vehicle. A double-din stereo will mount, but your cover won't close and you'll have issues with a large (3/4 inch) gap above your deck. Thankfully, I was getting component speakers installed and a professional was able to get the kit to work with about an hour's extra work. Basically, it'll work, but it's not exactly easy.
