Good but needs to be more strong in some parts
Was not a perfect fit. Needed adjustments to holes and openings I had a professional install so it looked perfect but if I had to do it myself, it would be annoying
Poorly made...Does not fit... Upset and I had to tweak it to make the stereo fit. Kinda looks ugly but it will do until the kit from scosche arrives METRA leaves a lot to be desired
Poorly made dash kit. Gaps between panels and misaligned panels are not what I would expect for a new part. The gloss black stands out like a sore thumb. Definitely will be looking at the Scosche dash kit.
I just had this professionally installed and not to thrilled with it. Had double dim radio put in and there are gaps in between. There are also gaps in between other parts of dash kit. I dont know if person that installed it didnt know what he was doing or if dash kit isn't good. I'm going to take it apart and reinstall it myself to see if that helps.
Pros: Looks cool
Cons: Plastic is easily mark with fingerprints. Doesn't fit good.
I tried to use this product in my 2011 Hyundai sonata GLS with a Pioneer AVH-4200NEX. The radio was too snug preventing the removable LCD from moving, this made the disk drive unacceptable. The dash kit also did not fit my car very well. It left gaps in some places and was too tight in other places. I could see it causing stress on the surrounding dash area. I ended up getting the Scosche HY1625B instead and it is like night and day. A much better OEM fit and mechanized LCD screen is able to move like it should. I recommend Crutchfield replace the Metra with the Scosche product in there installation guide, at least for the 2011 sonata.
Pieces don't fit together with OEM quality. Had to file off some excess plastic to make side vent pieces conform to main body. One corner of silver trim did not stay attached and is sticking out in an unsightly manner. It holds everything, just not in the prettiest manner. You may want to shop around your options before settling for this piece.
Pros: Holds all of the gear properly
Cons: Fit and finish leaves a lot to be desired, not as attractive as OEM dash piece Shiny black plastic is a fingerprint magnet
It looks real nice and works perfecly.
Pros: Everything was what I was specting
kit fits perfect. no modification needed.
Hard to tell if it is the kit or downright bad work done by the shop I went to. Having said that I imagine it is the person who installed the kit that made 2 noticeable mistakes. This dash comes in 3 pieces and not 1 piece meaning the person installing it must be careful to make sure all the pieces are flush. The upside is that I can take it off and readjust it myself. Also, An upside to this kit is the option to use a solid or vented cover underneath the air vent. I was able to hide my bluetooth microphone because of this and I am very pleased with this. Overall look is nice, colors work with the rest of the car and it was the cheapest place to get this dash kit.
Pros: - Seemingly easy installation - Colors match up to grays and blacks in the car - Choice of solid or vented hole cover - Cheap
Cons: Car shop installed it and it is not flush, I will have to resolve this myself
This face kit is a hunk of junk. The factory one comes off in one piece and this one comes as three. It does not line up correctly with all three parts and does not fit the car correctly. It also is not cut correct for the knobs to work easy or the radio to fit in the hole centered. Do yourself a favor and purchase the Scosche brand. The fit is perfect and it comes as one piece. Also the Metra kit comes in a high gloss which doesn't match the factory one at all.
So I've written a review before on this product and the only thing that had happened so far is that the buttons are sticking just a bit. But for a product that clearly says it doesn't fit a 2014 hyundai sonata, it will after you make some tweaks. The colors match perfectly in my boyfriend's car and his double din video monitor fits like a glove. No gaps whatsoever. We will be buying his audio system soon from Crutchfield!
Pros: Colors are perfect and sits well!
Cons: Not for a 2014 hyundai sonata. You need to customize it yourself
Great product fast shipping
Looks. Good. Not. To pricey
The only problem with the kit is that it does not sit all the way flush, but you cannot complain after you see how well it looks. I am very satisfied with the product. I recommend it to anyone who wants to upgrade their head unit.
Pros: Looks great Gives it a stock look Good quality Easy to install
Cons: Doesn't sit completely flush.
It would definitely help if they at least made one for this car that had the brushed aluminum look as opposed to the shiny black. I personally did not have that much trouble getting it to fit into my dash. Getting the side trims (the ones by the drink holders) back on needed a little pushing but it all fit eventually. There is a small gap above my double din unit but I feel like I could fix that along with the glare my units screen has on it by tilting the bottom of the brackets upwards. The gaps and color difference really don't bother me too much but it's a definitely an issue to be improved upon.
Pros: Did its job
Cons: Gaps Color.
If I could give this kit a ZERO review I would but only can go as low as 1. What bothers me now that I have read the reviews while on hold with Metra is first of all someone else on this Crutchfield forum had already complained about this not working yet I was provided this item anyway by Crutchfield. Metra just told me on the phone that there is nothing they can do and suggested I contact Crutchfield for a refund or do some modifications and/or shop work to retrofit a bracket....Gee Thanks I am screwed and have my vehicle torn apart. I wish I had never purchased anything from Crutchfield. 2013 Hyundai Sonata GLS 2.4L 6 speaker stock radio system upgrading to KW-V50BT.
Cons: radio support bracket Does Not Work At All. The 2 support mounts that affix to the vehicles chassis are offset...one is offset approx 2 inches forward than the other while the vehicle support colum is a straight verticle support. Dont have to be a rocket scientists to figure that out.Crutchfield response on March 24, 2015 We're sorry to hear that the installation kit didn't work for your car. If your Sonata is a "Limited" or Hybrid model, then there's no installation kit available. But if it's not one of those options, then there's some other problem. Our research team will look into it and make sure that our database is corrected if necessary.
Could fit better
Looks like it came from the Factory
Pros: Easy to install, Just take Your time!
This was supposed to easily fit a 2011 Hyundai Sonata which unfortunately it didn't without some major mods. The mounting brackets weren't even close to what was needed, they didn't line up at all. I used the ones off the stock radio with some mods. The trim in each side was loose right out if the box, and the rim around the opening had to be cut back with a Dremel tool to get the panel snapped in. What should have been an hour and a half install turned into 4 hours if head scratching and cussing. I can't get that time back, thanks.
Pros: I can't think of even 1
Cons: Reference above tirade.
This is not too good of quality. Decent but not good. Does not line up A symmetrically like the factory dash kit. I would recommend only because I think this is the only brand that makes the dash kit for 2011 - 2013 Hyundai Sonata. I had to do some cutting to get it to fit properly. Try your hand...
Pros: Nice black glossy finish and brushed silver finish to match factory dash.
Cons: Does not line up A symmetrically like the factory dash kit. Had some issues that required me to o some cutting/shaving to get a precise fit.
The product worked but it has some things that I wish I had known or thought about ahead of time.
Pros: It works...
Cons: In my SE, I lost the brushed metal look to this glossy version. The alignment near the console is off and the top left corner doesn't stay popped in. I've tried resetting it a few times with no luck. Also, I don't know why there is a second whole on the right side across from the hazards. It took away from it.
I was a little scared after reading the reviews. But, after some modification and tweaking, I got the think to look OK. I wrapped the side/vent panels in a brushed "aluminum" vinyl so that it better matches the car interior. I installed this as a "double din", and there were a few annoyances with the fit & finish. When you install your factory ac/heat assembly, there is a small gap in the center top, below the cross section below the radio. I found some black weather door sealer and cut to fit to fill in this gap. Also, the cross piece below the radio opening is kind of flimsy, and not ridged. So, it flexes and mine had a slight bow up. I fixed this by laminating a ridged piece of plexi underneath, to give it strength-problem solved. I also had to lightly dremel the edges of the ac/heater and blower control nobs, as well. Not much, but if you don't the nobs will stick and not operate smoothly. It was free, and not many options out there. I made it work, and I'm happy with it. On a sidenote, if you take out your factory stereo, you'll lose your BlueLink service. Just FYI-- it's not mentioned anywhere.
Pros: Not "horrible"
Cons: Poor fit. Gaps around stereo and heater/ac control panel that need to be filled. Cross piece below stereo needs to be reinforced to prevent flexing and bowing. Sanding/adjustment needs to be done for control nobs holes, otherwise they will stick and not operate smoothly.
Worked great, kind of shinny instead of the dull black finish the OEM had so its a little distracting but I'm used to it by now. Had to remove all of the components from the old unit to install on the new one. Keep a good count of where each screw goes some are longer than the others. Overall, I give it a good rating, have to install it just right to fit, but once installed is does look very nice.
Pros: fits the car and makes the finish look professional
Cons: doesn't match the exact finish the OEM had.
I read the reviews on here about this product and was very skeptical about buying it. In the end I only bought it because I had to have it to put my new stereo in my car. After getting my order and looking the kit over, it's not near as bad as I feared from the reviews I read. It's definitely not top notch. They could improve it quite a bit to make it look better and function better but still not horrible. I'm mostly happy with how everything turned out. Biggest problem with it was the the brackets they sent with it didn't want to fit right so I used the factory ones instead.
Pros: only one for my car, not horrible looking or fitting. free with my crutchfield order
Cons: wasn't a perfect fit, lot of work to put together, cheap material.
I have a 2012 Sonata SE 2.0t and wanted to upgrade my factory radio. This was one of the only dash trim panels I could find. I am very disappointed in the quality and the fit of this product. Firstly, a double DIN head unit must sit behind the dash panel (as in it won't be flush with the dash panel), because the opening isn't wide enough for the head unit. It doesn't look smooth, you can see tiny cracks where the head unit isn't flush with the panel, and the recessed position of the head unit interferes with use of the buttoms along the inferior border of the head unit. The climate control portion of the car was too big for the opening of this panel. I had to use high grit sandpaper to sand down the edges of the panel to make it fit. The high gloss black pieces that house the a/c vents are too big and had to be sanded down on the bottom so it would fit in the dash. Also, the a/c vents aren't flush with the panel either, they are recessed. The OEM dash panel had brushed metal finish. The high gloss plastic contrasts with the brushed metal finish elsewhere in the car. Now there is the matte black finish around the head unit and climate control, the high gloss black for the a/c vents, and the brushed metal trim everywhere else in the car. It just doesn't mesh well with the interior of the car. I cannot recommend this product, but as it is the only one out there for this year sonata, I will use it. I hope another manufacturer releases a dash kit soon.
Pros: After some sanding I was able to put it back in the dash of my car. If you are creative, you should be able to make it fit as well. With a little dremel tool, some sand paper, super glue, and determination, you can make it work for your car.
Cons: See above for details: Poor quality plastic. It is not the brushed metal finish that matches the rest of my car. It doesn't fit in many different locations and required sanding down of the plastic to make it fit A double DIN head unit sits behind the dash panel, it is not flush with the dash panel, which would be much nicer looking and how the OEM radio was. The finish of the plastic surfaces starkly contrasts the finish of the rest of the car.
The brackets don't fit the dash correctly, and kits fit and finish is poor. I ended up keeping my factory radio, this is a terrible product
Cons: Product has terrible fit and finish, the brackets can not work with the dash on my 2012 sonata se. I was very disappointed and had to give up and pit the factory radio back in.
Best brand for Dash kits! [ ALVIN Apr 28, 2016 ]
needed it. [ Reginal Apr 25, 2016 ]
Needed for a factory look for my aftermarket radio. [ Arnel Feb 29, 2016 ]
Only dash kit I could find for my 2014 hyundai sonata. After reading the reviews (which were both positive and negative) I realized I had no choice really. Couldn't find anything that would fit my vehicle. Modifications will be made and I'm hoping it comes out okay. [ Miguel Dec 26, 2015 ]
