I got this with a new JVC head unit for my daughter's 2001 Subaru Outback. It fit perfectly and looks great in the dash with the new head unit.

2001 Subaru Outback
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I got this with a new JVC head unit for my daughter's 2001 Subaru Outback. It fit perfectly and looks great in the dash with the new head unit.

Pros: Fit our old Subaru like a glove and looks good in the dash.

Cons: Instructions are not very detailed so it was a little confusing to assemble but not too bad. I got it done right the first time and didn't need to call customer service.

2004 Subaru Outback
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Went together fine. Plastic a tad bit brittle, had to separate one of the face plate piece after clipping it together and wound up breaking one of the little retaining clips. Went back together snugly enough though so no big deal. Clean install overall.



Simple and Nice

2002 Subaru Outback
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is a great stereo! It has good sound quality, the bluetooth is perfect! This was a gift for my boyfriend's car and he loves it. It was a nice price and Crutchfield makes sure you have everything you need for installation.

Pros: Great sound, great look, bluetooth works for music and phone calls. Perfect stereo!

Cons: I do wish the installation package would have been more clear...the install fits three diff car models so you had to use trial and error to figure which parts are needed for your car make.

Perfect fit, but...

2000 Subaru Legacy
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This fit the opening in my 2000 Subaru Legacy Outback perfectly but - the image and description show two (2) pockets in the kit. The package I received only contained one pocket. That turned out to not be a problem in my case but, still, wasn't as advertised. If you need 2 pockets to fill the dash, you might call Crutchfield first to verify.

Pros: Perfect fit and match for my vehicle.

Cons: Only 1 pocket when the advertised kit said it contained 2.

Crutchfield response on April 1, 2014 This kit is available in two versions: a version with one pocket and a version with two pockets. Most Subaru vehicles use one or the other. The customer received the one-pocket version be mistake, but luckily he didn't need the second pocket in his application, so we all got lucky. We've double-checked our stock to make sure this doesn't happen to anyone else.

I only needed one pocket when I used this kit to replace a double DIN sized unit in a 2004 Subaru Outback. The replacement radio unit was installed in the space where the second pocket would be. [ Patrick  Apr 03, 2015 ]
Our outback had a single DIN that I replaced with a single DIN. However single DIN equipped Outbacks come with a small "shelf" insert in the second DIN slot. So you might be able to get that plastic part from Subaru, another parts retailer or from a junk yard. [ JEFF  Apr 02, 2015 ]
