Dash kit

Julie from Rapid City, SD on 7/28/2017

2009 Toyota Matrix
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It was the right size but my dash bows a out and this one was straight now I have no dash kit and looks goofy

Pros: It came in a descent time frame

Cons: It doesn't fit my car style mine bows and this one is straight

Crutchfield response on 7/31/2017 Once we saw this review, our Tech Support team reached out to Julie to help her further. We'll either help her get the kit installed correctly, or help her return it for an exchange or refund.

Neccessary part, but could be better quality controlled.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This Dash kit was provided for a 2009 Pontiac Vibe AWD, which is stated is "fits vehicle". It does NOT fit the vehicle out of the box, I had to cut a notch in one of the bracket arms to clear a dash board part. If I had not cut the notch, it would have cause the radio to be skewed to the left and angled down on the left side. You can see the square obstacle on the passenger side of the double din opening in the photo. Also, I'm not sure if its the radio or the mount, but when mounted, its too far recessed into the opening, causing the final install to look unfinished or a mistake was made. The overall quality is average, ABS could be better, and color options could be better. Gray vs Black would be nice.

Pros: Provides the needed mounts and trim.

Cons: Doesn't fit exactly as promised.

Crutchfield response on 7/3/2017 Wan, whenever you encounter a problem, or need installation help with anything you purchase from Crutchfield, please contact our tech support team right away. They can help you solve the problem and get the kit installed properly! Lifetime tech support comes with every Crutchfield purchase.

Satisfied with the fit, thrilled with the price.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The fit is pretty good on my Pontiac Vibe. It's not perfect, but it's very close. And it was very easy to install. There are minor gaps where the original radio buttons overhang (on the inside facing the radio). It does fit the panel cutout accurately. I really cant complain, considering how I didn't pay a thing for it through Crutchfield. Crutchfield supplied ALL the necessary installation items for free. I am very pleased.

Pros: Installation was supplied free with head unit.

Cons: Very minor gap (let me stress "very minor.")

Right the first time

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

First purchase with Crutchfield, but finding the exact kit I needed for my car was surprisingly easy. I will not hesitate to purchase from Crutchfield again.

Pros: Easy to find the correct item and order

Cons: None yet

Works as advertised, not the best fit and finish

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

An inexpensive kit that will hold the deck in place. It is not very good looking. 3 stars because it works and it's free.

Pros: Practical Inexpensive

Cons: Sloppy install Big gaps in trim

OK but not any better than that

Bill_audio from pleasanton, CA on 2/17/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It's made well enough and matches the black in my interior. It clipped into mt dash fine but the way it fits around my stereo is not that great. There's a small gap all the way around the unit. Used original metal factory stereo mounts as the plastic ones that come with kit are flimsy and useless.

Pros: Fit in to existing dash well.

Cons: Doesn't fit around stereo very well.

Mounting Brackets Didn't Work

MarkA from Chesapeake Va. on 12/28/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Tried to use this to install a Pioneer stereo in a 2009 Matrix S. I ended up using the metal brackets from the OEM unit because the left mounting bracket wouldn't line up with the screw holes. There was a protrusion on the metal plate the brackets mount to that blocked it from going into place. Fortunately the OEM metal bracket screw holes lined up perfectly and are much sturdier anyway. I did use the trim plate which worked out well.

Pros: Trim plate looks good.

Cons: Brackets wouldn't line up with screw holes.

The worst

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I spent have the day trying to get this to fit snug and look good but no way . It sets the stereo to far back and hard to use the volume controls . I think I might be able to re-work the original metal brackets to fit better ! A big headache to me !!

Pros: none

Cons: as stated above !

It worked.

Pros: It worked.

Cons: None

Poor fit and finish

Ray from Michigan on 3/9/2015

2009 Toyota Matrix
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Poor fit. It leaves a quarter-inch gap at the bottom. I called Crutchfield and was told that's just how it fits. I'm not happy with the results.

Pros: None.

Cons: Does not look good.

Metra 95-8224 Dash Kit

Greg K. from Roselle Park, NJ on 8/22/2014

2009 Pontiac Vibe
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

As part of my purchase of the Jensen VX 7020 Multimedia Car radio with Navigation, Crutchfield automatically supplies this Metra 95-8224 Dash trim and mounting bracket kit for my 2009 Pontiac Vibe. After a few attempts of placing it around my new radio as well as to the Dash panel of which it snaps into, I soon learn that it did not fit around the radio in the way that I though it was supposed to. Then when placed inside the OEM Dash panel's opening, I found large gaps and poor fit and finishes around the perimeter of the trim. Third, I found that the plastic mounting brackets did not fit correctly into the interior mounting supports within the dash. And then it seems that radio and the this radio trim are completely miss-aligned to each other.... such that I could of never have placed the exterior dash panel against to or around the radio..

Pros: nothing.

Cons: Was not correctly design, tested or verified to fit into my 2009 Pontiac Vibe. I since ordered a Scosche TA2102B trim mounting kit which does correctly and nicely fit into my car. Crutchfield was very nice about crediting me for my cost of the Scosche. Thanks again for your help Crutchfield.

Worse kit I have ever received from Crutchfield!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It didn't align well with the opening in the dash. It didn't allow the moving bezel to work on my Pioneer AVH-X8500BHS. The mounting tabs broke off on both sides when trying to position it properly.

Pros: None

Cons: It's junk

Perfect Fit!!
