Your 2012-14 Ford Focus is a great car, but the stock center console makes it difficult to upgrade the factory radio. Metra's dash kit allows you to install a new single-DIN (2" tall) or double-DIN (4" tall) receiver in your car's dash panel, while maintaining all heating, ventilation, and air conditioning controls.
The matte black finish is a perfect match for the color, texture, and contours of your car's dash. Warranty: 1 year.
Note: Most vehicles will require additional installation parts please identify your vehicle if you haven’t done so. You can also call an Advisor for more information.
Average Customer Review(s):
Nice product. Fits and looks great!
Cons: Color of back lights
Great product.. great customer service
It fit perfectly in my car
Looks good installed just wish the dash lights could be changed.
Perfect fit. The unit will set the time on the clock and you can use the buttons to navigate just fine. The reason 4 stars is that the vents aren't a 100% perfect fit and don't clip in exactly as they should. That and the ultra orange light that is behind the buttons and on the unlock/lock indicator light. Not cool.
Pros: Perfect fit and is easy very easy to install, despite its looks.
Cons: Orange light and buttons seems a bit squishy....oversized if you will...
Fits good. Matches the dash. Quality could be better and the lights should match the car's lights. The orange clashes too much.
Pros: Good fit and match for dash.
Cons: Orange lights clash with the blue lights of the car.
This kit is a perfect fit and works great
Awesome product, fit perfectly in my car. Buttons are very easy to press. Orange color is a minor detail but not to worry, my head unit matches it perfectly. Awesome awesome!
Fit and finish is pretty good. I installed a single din deck with no major problems. As others have said the orange backlighting doesn't match with my Ford Focus and one of the lights is really bright. Even though it's not perfect it looks very good in the dash. Overall a good product.
Pros: Best option to custom fit an aftermarket stereo
Cons: Orange backlight
Love it. The site is easy to understand. Great price and the delivery was made exactly when stated.
Pros: Great price. Speedy delivery. The site is easy to understand and use.
Cons: No cons
What prevented the item from receiving 5-stars is how expensive it is, which can't be helped because it has very limited applications, and how cryptic the instructions were. I made an attempt to install it myself and the instructions had me trying to insert the stereo sleeve into the two side mounts, but when I took it to the installations tech, he just screwed the stereo straight to the side mounts without the sleeve which made it work. Maybe it's my fault for not being a little more adaptable, but I follow instructions. Anyway, once everything was installed, it looks great and works great. After reading some of the other reviews about the back-lighting, I should note that I rarely drive at night, so I really haven't been affected by this but I can imagine it would be a little annoying.
It feels good with quality plastic used. The buttons are dense and its easy it install
Pros: Good color, strong features
Great receiver for the price. Took me less than a hour to install in my 2013 Focus. Sounds 5X better than my stock radio.
Pros: Price Sound Quality Easy installation
Cons: Can't think of one con about this receiver or install
I have a 2012 Focus SE without the Sync system and this works pretty good with it. It does cover up part of the screen (which is now a glorified clock) but you can still see the time and date just fine. The pocket/sleeve that came with my dash kit was either the wrong one or was defective because neither myself nor a car audio installer could get it to work with my dash kit and single din stereo. The holes didn't match up. Because I was already so invested in the project (had amps, sub, speakers, etc...) I decided to buy a double DIN and give my little sister the single din. The double DIN fit perfectly. The lighting is very annoying, as stated by multiple reviewers, but I just set my deck to the same color scheme and now it's slightly less annoying.
Pros: - Fits well - I have two clocks now - Buttons work
Cons: - Lighting is Amber instead of Blue like the rest of the car - Locked indicator light is brighter than the sun - This is the first dash kit I've bought for more that $10 - Single DIN pocket would not work, might've been the wrong one - Buttons look kind of tacky, take away from the sleek design of the Focus
I had some trouble with the installation and fitting it with my pioneer stereo. I had some trouble getting both top display screen and my double din stereo to fit flush with the kit at first so it took some finessing. The brackets mounted the stereo well and instructions were easy to follow. The only negative thing about the kit was that it covered my top screen time (hours and minutes) buttons so I had to drill in holes myself to still have access to those buttons when necessary.
Pros: Easy instructions. Looks great. Buttons on the kit work well after installation.
Cons: The kit covers the top factory screens buttons.
Great fit and easy install.
Pros: Color match.
Cons: Wish you could change the LED back light color
I was really looking forward to this piece to finally get an aftermarket stereo in my Focus, but when i installed it 2 things bothered me, 1. The vent trim pieces from the stock stereo do not fit this. 2. The buttons light up Orange, which is an increbible oversight by Metra, since the Focus lights are all white and cyan, i ended up using electrical tape to cover up the light to keep it from distracting me. Other than the the kit works, i dont have the sync system so 3 of the buttons do nothing.
Pros: Fits good Works Double Din
Cons: Lights are wrong color Vent trim not interchangeable with factory
great fit, looks good, am very pleased
I used an AXXESS adaptor, did not get a steering wheel sync adaptor as I don't like Ford's Sync, found it annoying. Metra fit fine, LEDs too bright but the unit died after a few weeks (lost display for time, temp and date), it was replaced under warranty. 2nd unit works but you can't change the time, only the emergency light and lock/unlock button function, all the others don't work. Also Ford has two radio antennas and you have to choose which to use. Another problem is Ford uses an impedance matching chip in their antenna assembly which will not likely match any aftermarket receiver, it can't be adjusted. This is a problem with receivers, most (all?) don't have an adjustment for impedance matching with the antenna so you can't optimize the signal and improve reception. Is this a big problem? Probably not considering the small antenna craze now in vogue that Ford is following, those small antennas just can't produce the signal of larger antennas so you can't get the stations you could with older style antennas. And you can't just screw in a larger antenna as there is no way to match impedance to take advantage of more signal strength, I tried that and it didn't work. If anyone knows of a solution for this I would like to hear it. I removed the Metra. I have 3 Toyotas and all have much better reception with the stock radio than the Ford Focus.
Pros: good fit, instruction were easy to follow
Cons: Lost most of the control button functions, only emergency lights and lock/unlock worked. LEDs too bright at night.
It does fit, and will have to do until something better comes out.
Pros: Fits good
Cons: The up button works half the time. Doesn't change colors, really needs to be blue.
Fits like it should
Pros: Fits and looks factory
Worked perfect buttons are nice and it was as simple as could be
Cons: Wish lights changed colors
It's a pretty good fit kit but they should have made the lights on it blue to match the other dash lights. Also configured it to be like the original and use the original trim pieces on the a/c vents. Why buy new ones. Oh yeah to make more money off the pricey fit kit. And the buttons could have been more like the original, nice and not bulky.
Pros: Good fit
Cons: The lights are red
The fit and function of this adapter kit is great. It allowed me to easily swap my factory Sync system for a Parrot Asteroid Smart. Unfortunately for reasons I don't understand, the buttons are very odd looking and Metra used amber for the backlighting when the rest of the car has light blue (as I think all Focus's are). It really looks out of place at night and really distracts from what would be a very factory looking install. Also, the "locked door" indicator LED is blinding at night. There really is no other option to get a 2DIN unit in a 2012+ Focus so you will just need to deal with the buttons as it is otherwise a great product.
Pros: Fits perfectly and does a great job of retaining the factory Sync Display. Easy to install with good directions.
Cons: The keypad doesn't look stock at all. Buttons are not like factory style and the backlighting completely different. Door lock indicator is too bright.
Fits like factory unit.
Pros: easy to install.
Cons: none that i can find.
I installed this on a Ford Focus ST. Everything worked as advertised and it looks like it came with the car. There're a couple things to be aware of though. The mounting brackets are made of plastic. If you over tighten the mounting screws, you can end up squeezing the plastic apart. Don't over tighten. Second issue is that there is a little light that displays when the doors are locked. This light is pretty bright and sometimes annoys me at night. Also, all the lights on the dislpay buttons are amber color. Other than that, I'm happy with it.
Pros: Looks like it came with the car; easy to install
Cons: Plastic, don't over tighten screws; one very bright door lock light
Awesome fit, easy directions, no complaints.
Pros: Looks stock, great directions, seamless install
