Average Customer Review(s):
Excellent kit, easy to use.
Dash kit for my 03' Buick Lesabre Custom installed fairly well. I am not a professional installer and I had some issues with the install, but I got it to work. It looks great and is holding everything in place nice and tight.
Pros: Easy to install Looks good
Instructions overwhelming the first time read, got easier the more I reviewed them
Pros: Fit great, once I got a handle on what I was doing.
Cons: Instructions overwhelming at first
piece of cake installing. what more can i say
unit very multi purpose.
Pros: good product.
Cons: you must know what you vehicle is and discern how to install from photos. magnifying glass was helpful to me in understanding which way things should point.
Fit fine for me.
The install was easy. Directions are a little confusing. Because this kit is used for so many vehicles, there's a lot of information and parts you won't need. The head unit surround with the kit does not sit tight. I used the surround supplied with the head unit and it works well.
Pros: Simple install.
Cons: Confusing directions. Supplied head unit surround does not fit nicely.
Functions - barely.
Pros: Cheap, versitile
Cons: Poor instructions. Cheaply made, leaves light around my head unit. Don't expect to use your factory face plate, it does not fit, nor does a shiny factory face plate look good with the flat mat textured plastic of this thing.
Dash Kit fit right in the opening after the tabs were trimmed off. Universal instructions leave you a little confused but it only fits one way. Looks very nice once installed. I recommend this kit.
Pros: Stereo fits tight and secure in box, looks nice when done.
Cons: Mounting hardware is not right for vehicle, had to modify slightly so it would tighten up. Space is an issue with all the wiring once it is slid in for final installation.
Kit comes with a plethora of parts for a custom fit into a variety of vehicles. Instructions are fairly straight-forward and easy to navigate.
Pros: Looks good. Easy installation.
Cons: Extra tabs on the kit had to be cut off for a completely flush mount.
great fit. looks good, almost like its not there. install was simple with it.
Pros: perfect fit
Cons: none right now
I used this in a 2001 Pontiac Bonneville and while I got it to work I wasn't as happy as I have been with installed kits I've used in other vehicles. first off I know its not a perfect fit but really my main complant is that you don't recieve any real way to secure it to your dash. I ended up scratching my hands all up holding some flimsy metal clips and running a screw through it. I'll come up with something better but I had my car all apart and can't leave it that way. I also wish that Metra would stop making these kits to practically force you to use their radio trim bezel. My radio came with a bezel that compliments it's styling. I don't want to use Metra's crappy piece. other than that it's fine. Comes with a bunch of different stuff most of the time you wont use. But I got it to work.
Pros: holds my radio
Cons: hard to secure to dash and almost forces you to use their trim bezel for radio
Did the job and looks good. The directions were confusing. Didn't really secure to my 2003 Bonneville well.
Pros: Looks good when installed.
Cons: The directions spent too much time on what was obvious and not enough on what wasn't. Nothing in kit that secured the radio to the car easily. I ended up improvising because the direction were a mess.
worked great with 2004 Avalanche
Pros: worked great with 2004 Avalanche
The installation is necessary. I just wish it had come with a fastening method to secure it to the dash of my car! It was missing the mounting attachment fasteners. The included manual did not even shop them. They stopped after telling you to cut off the tabs. I used license plate plastic inserts and smaller diameter screw to secure. Worked fine but I was disappointed because I wasted time try to figure out a securing method.
Pros: Stereo fit nice and I like the pocket below the stereo.
Cons: Lack of instruction and hardware to finish job. Took extra time to complete installation. Cannot install new stereo without it!
I ordered this item with the recommendation of my mechanic, and his install guy. Fitting things together, was a bit of work. Once installed, this mount kit is quite solid (much as needed) and vey clean looking. Many years ago I did installs as a part-time job, and this mount kit is much better, and more adaptable than anything that I have used in the past. You need to test fit, and take your time. The results will be shown in the final job quality. For all the concerns I have for their wiring harness parts (COSTS), this mounting kit works very well, and is fairly priced. More than worth the asking price. Extra time and care taking with install adaptors make for the cleanest, and most professional results. Time and care taken once, during install makes the final results much more enjoyable.
Pros: Clean looking finished install, fairly priced, and solid mounting when fitted with care.
Cons: This is an ADAPTOR kit. Test fitting, time, and care are required for best results.
I used this on a 2003 Buick LeSabre. It mounted the radio fine. Instructions are confusing. Hardware was missing in mine, but they could do better than the mechanism they provide.
Pros: Fits. Looks satisfactory. Holds the radio securely.
Cons: Instructions are a mess. Hardware missing in mine. Use of speed nuts and screws instead of some kind of license-plate screw insert or, better yet, clips similar to the factory radio was a downer. I ended up screwing through the mount into the car's plastic. It was more secure that way.
Made install a snap and looks good. I would have preferd a double din system but could not get one with the features that I wanted.
Cons: Instructions made it harder than it was.
Perfect fit for my 2003 2500HD. No cutting of the interior dash and no other altercations. Perfect fit...
2005 Buick LeSabre I may be dumb, but the instructions are VERY confusing. I ended up modifying this for my benefit after I screwed up with the instructions.
Pros: Fills space
Cons: Does not attach well to car nor does it explain how to attach well
Most parts not used. No/bad instructions for my '02 LeSabre. Had to buy hardware store hardware to mount.
Pros: Fills the hole.
Cons: Too many wrong parts.
