You bought a 2006-up Honda Civic coupe, but its console makes it impossible to upgrade the factory radio. This Scosche HA1561 dash kit replaces your console, and it's a perfect match for the color, texture, and contours of the dash in your Honda. It allows you to install an aftermarket DIN-sized (2" tall) stereo, with a pocket underneath, or double-DIN (4" tall) stereo, while maintaining all Honda heating, ventilation, and air conditioning controls.

Makes install of a new stereo work perfectly! Looks like it is an original equipment installation. Very pleased!
excellent product!! perfect fit,perfect color. My advisor was a great help!!
Poor fit against the dash. Leaves a gap. Otherwise, all transferred factory parts fit well.
Pros: Simple to install.
Cons: Poor fit.
Got this to out in a touch screen stereo came within the same week of ordering it! The only thing is the color isnt identicale to my interior but its pretty close nothing extreamly noticeable.
Pros: Cheap , brings everything you need , fast , easy
Cons: Color dosnt match 100%
After reading about some problems that others had, I was slightly nervous about this kit.I got it along with a single DIN Kenwood. As others have noted, I also had to sand some plastic for the climate control buttons to stop sticking, but it wasnt that big a deal. I also had the plastic crack when putting the screws in, as the holes are too small. I tried the 'heating the screw with a lighter trick' on some of them, and it seemed to help. In spite of the cracking, everything seemed secure. The mounting bracket seemed sturdy enough for a single DIN, but for a double DIN, I would probably glue the bracket pieces together as well as screwing them. The color matches great, and there was no problem snapping it back into the dash.
Pros: Great color Match. Easy installation.
Cons: Plastic cracks when you screw in the screws.
Matches perfectly but instructions are non existent and is missing 2 screws to secure the radio but otherwise looks professional.
The instructions left out some key information. You have to remove the little plastic clips from the old radio/climate control bezel and install them on the new. The holes in the bottom of the radio bracket are just a small pilot hole, the screws that were removed from that spot on the factory radio are fine thread machine screws that are flat on the tip. It would be difficult to re-use them in that spot. I swapped them with a similar sized course thread screw with a pointed tip.
Pros: Looks great
Cons: Instructions were lacking some information.
Very good fit, easy assemble, you have to change a couple of clippers from the original to this one; but at the end, good product
Pros: Good fit. No problems with any button on the A/C or any other
Cons: The holes where you screw back the original screws are too small and they crack. Still holds good though. I used the bezel and the right upper corner comes loose; we had to glue it
Perfect fit, easy to change over. Looks great.
Color was a little off but not noticed unless in the bright sun.
Pros: Makes it a lot better with after market double din.
Cons: Color is a little off
This is a great product and a great price since I bought it in addition to a head unit. This was an exact replacement for factory dash piece, I just had to remove the buttons, a/c vent, etc and put it on this new one. It snapped back in and aligned perfectly.
I have installed 2 of these. One in my daughters 2009 Civic and the other in my niece 2006. I have to trim both at the A/C controls. Other than that they were perfect.
Cons: Had to trim
Still a bit of space that the trim panel does not cover, must look closely to see it but it is there. Also, the screws from the factory unit do not fit the holes in this kit! Thankfully, I had others, small self-tapping
Pros: Allowed me to mount new radio
Cons: Not perfect color match and screws need to be thinner
I was a bit nervous after reading all the reviews on the screw towers cracking but I used a simple method that worked perfectly. I held the screw with a pair of needle nose pliers by the head and lit the screw with a bic lighter. After I had the screw good and hot I placed the screw with the pliers of course, it would be way to hot to touch, into the hole and screwed it in. After the third screw this way I was confident and wasn't near as cautious with the rest as I knew they weren't going to crack and I quickly screwed the rest on in. I had also read where some had problems with the buttons sticking so I sanded each opening first with 100 grit sand paper before hand. I don't know if mine would have stuck otherwise or not but figured I'd play it safe. I thought the color was fine. It doesn't match the panels next to it but neither did the original. I thought it matched just as well as the original. Very happy with this kit. You
Pros: Looks great and holds everything as it should.
Every one of the screw holes cracked before the screw was even halfway in, let alone tight (using a manual screwdriver) requiring that I mask off and epoxy the tiny screw "towers" for strength. The factory climate controls, vent, and hazard light switch fit well, but again, every screw hole cracked as the screws were installed. The mounting instructions and included plastic brackets called for mounting the double-DIN receiver from behind, which would have made installation and any future changes as fussy and time-consuming as the factory stereo. I did not want to do this, so I modified the plastic brackets (which seemed too flimsy to me) by enlarging the holes so that I could mount the slide-in chassis for the double-DIN unit. I then used 3/16 pop rivets to secure the sides of the chassis to the plastic brackets. The L-shaped tabs that meet up with two small bolts from below were way too flexible to trust supporting a double-DIN, so I cut them away, removed the steel bracket from the factory stereo, and installed that to the slide-in chassis with 3/16 pop-rivets, which worked great and meant that the new unit was just as solidly supported from below as the factory one. With all of that done and installed, the unit slid into the chassis from the front and clicked solidly into place as designed. The trim piece visually finished it off nicely, but did not snap in very well and feels loose to the touch. Finally, it places the face of the head unit at a sun-glare-prone angle
Pros: inexpensive, good physical fit with factory controls and dashboard, saves time versus fabricating one from scratch.
Cons: brittle plastic, mediocre color match, flimsy support brackets for double-DIN, hours of work required to mount head unit as solidly as original factory one.
This does work but the color is off and the plastic is brittle to the point of cracking as you run the screws in when you transfer vents, buttons, and HVAC controls to it. Of you have to remove it be VERY careful the tabs will break off as well. Really not the best quality, but the only option out there.
Pros: it fits as expected
Cons: color was not a match and plastic was very brittle.
For 2011 Civic EX sedan. As others have said, the color and texture match really isn't perfect. It's quite close though, and most passengers probably wouldn't notice. I thought the fitment was similarly not quite perfect. The cutout for the passenger airbag light is the worst- a couple seconds of looking at it and you can tell the light doesn't sit perfectly within the hole. The hazards button had a small tab left on the top rather than a perfectly clean circle. However the climate control knobs and buttons fit excellently. The main display cutout is just barely off. I have a single DIN and I use the supplied cubby under it. The supplied trim panel that goes around the radio is a bit loose- I ended up using the trim panel supplied with the radio even though it's a slightly different color and size- and at the bottom center where it meets the cubby, it bows upwards and the cubby bows downwards. so there's this very small gap between them. Lastly, and this might be partly a design flaw on Honda's part with the placement of locking clips, the upper right and lower right of the entire kit are a little loose if you wiggle them. It's not noticeable at all when pressing buttons or anything, I only noticed during install. All those negatives aside, it's still 3 stars because I've already stopped noticing all those details (except the passenger airbag light...) after just a few days. There's room for improvement on the fitment and color, but it's s
I like the fact that it got here very quickly and it wasn't too hard to install.
Pros: It was a lot easier to install than I thought it would be.
Cons: The color was a little different than I expected.
This kit was pretty easy to install, I will have to say. However after putting it in my '07 Si with grey interior the color doesn't really match, and the texture of the plastic is not really the same either. It probably won't be obvious to most people but it is to me. Also, the nice feel of the climate control knobs changes in the new kit. On the factory one they had nice small clicks when adjusting the fans/temperature, on the Scosche they feel really tight and you don't have those nice clicks to give you feed back. At least all the stuff works once transferred and it slides easily into place. The plastic (!) mounting brackets that you are supposed to used for your head unit are very flimsy and it's disappointing that they aren't metal, plus they don't bolt into place like the old factory one does. Makes me a little nervous. Luckily my head unit has no CD player so it's relatively light. Also, I'm pretty sure at least one of the screws on the brackets broke when I was sliding the kit back in the car as my head unit is not sitting straight in the kit, so I will at some point have to pull it back out and hopefully be able to repair. If there are other options out there (I think it's possible to get the factory kit for the nav system to work) I would investigate, I wish I had.
Pros: -fits well -easy to install -cheap
Cons: -color/texture is off -climate control knobs have a different feel once transferred -mounting bracket is flimsy and you can't bolt it into place like the factory one
The way it was made ans how everything fit correctly in place was perfect
For the price it's great Honda wanted too much money for the plastic piece again glad to have found the parts for a great price
This is one of the best large dash replacement kits I've used. The fit was good and it looks OEM.
Pros: Looks OEM and all parts transferred over just fine.
Fit perfectly, color match was spot on with existing dashboard and easy to install.
Great quality fits perfect like oem.
Pretty bad quality. This is my first install that needed a dash piece replaced. The color is not a perfect match to my 2007 Honda Civic EX. It's off enough that it draws the eye on a daily basis. Color aside, the overall quality is not even close to the stock one I replaced. When transferring the heater controls from the stock dash to this one, half of the posts stripped out or cracked when screwing in the components, not from over tightening, just poorly made. This forced me to JB Weld up each post to ensure the heater controls didn't flop around. The "clips" where it attaches to the dash were not in the same places as the stock ones, some being as far as 3/16" off. This required shaving to get it into the dash. If I knew how bad this piece would be, I may not have installed a double din at all.
Product look great and fits in the spot nice, matches factory interior really well.i did have a issue with the mounting of one the original pieces, and the stereo itself.
Pros: looks great, fits in factory space great.
Cons: the hazard button had to stay a little loose or it would not turn off it rubbed the side, and the stereother had to be mounted before putting the side brackets on otherwise it was not going in.
fits and does what its supposed to do!! Matches my car interior color like a charm!!
My factory radio stopped working and to install a new radio we had to change out the dash. This dash insert work wonderfully and the color is great. Easy to change out.
Looks good, but not a perfect fit. My climate control buttons get stuck.
Great product. Color match to OEM was very close. Fit was excellent. The mounts for the head unit were very sturdy. Everything I had to take off the OEM panel and install on this one installed perfectly. 2 very minor issues: 1) the brackets to mount the head unit are so thick that I had to shave them down a little to get the screws to engage on the head unit itself. I suppose longer screws could have solved the problem too, but with a car torn apart, I didn't want to go to the store - I just wanted to find a way to use the screws that came with the head unit. 2)The little storage tray that goes under the head unit - it has holes in the back of it. They're small - so small that coins wouldn't fall through - but if anything did fall through, it would fall into the cavity behind the dash, and lots of work would have to be done to retrieve it.
Pros: Does what its supposed to. Great fit and function
Cons: None worth griping about
This kit made for an easy installation, and it looks like a factory job. The only problem is that you have to align the climate controls perfectly before tightening the screws. If you don't, the buttons will stick and therefore not work correctly.
Dash kit was easy to install, fit great and color is not noticabely different ... overall I had no problems with this kit
Fit perfectly! Great price.
Pros: Easy to fit.
I only gave this a two because of issues with quality. The new dash piece from Scosche did not match the color and texture of the original. It had some plastic left over from the moulding process that required trimming and almost all of the mounting holes in the back of the piece cracked when the OEM screws were installed. Not good. Poor quality control. The kit was also missing screws to attach the receiver to the included plastic brackets. Had to go to the hardware store and buy four 5mm screws and split washers. There was a metal mounting frame that came with the JVC receiver but it wouldn't install in the hole due to the size of the plastic side brackets. The kit came with two electrical connectors, one for the OEM car connector and one for the radio. They had to be wired together. I decided to solder and shrink wrap them instead of using connectors. The instructions to wire them together were slim so a novice would have to probably contact Crutchfield for instructions. BTW, instructions were not good for this kit. I installed this with my teenage son in his car and he loves it so I gave it a 2 instead of a 1. I would not put this kit in my own car.
Pros: Easy to install.
Cons: Quality is poor on dash piece. Missing some installation hardware.
Dash kit was easy too install also matched dash perfectly
Had to do some modifications where the ac control is at. And I do wish the screws that hold the radio was a tad bigger only had two of them. But it did its job
Pros: Looks very nice..
Cons: Screws where too short
Perfect match that looks just like it came from the factory!
Cons: As others have noted, the screws used in the factory dash can break the new dash because the brittleness of the plastic.
Obviously pretty mandatory item for installation. Found it easier than most installs I have done using this product. Only big drawback was the holes the factory screws you have to use ended up breaking almost all of the molded plastic pilot holes in the adapter when you switch over all of the controls, ac vent, hazard light button. Logical fix would be to provide screws for the peripherals that don't break the kit. After I heard the first screw crack the housing as I attempted to tighten it, I tightened all the rest incredibly slowly, and obviously only tight enough to create a proper fit of the peripheral, but at least 6 of them still cracked...maybe they do provide screws and mine just weren't in the box? Just be extra careful, and even try to pick up some smaller coarse thread panheads from the hardware store or something. Everything seems to still be snuggly in place for the time being.
Pros: Color match was perfect, fit was perfect
Cons: factory screws for peripherals are too big for adapter kit causing it to break
Easy to assemble. Matches perfectly
I bought this to replace the factory stereo in my 2010 Honda Civic. The color match is flawless with the rest of the dash. As with most aftermarket trim pieces, the fit was not as great as I had expected and the mounting holes (for the A/C, airbag light, and hazard lights) are weak and break easily; so be very careful. The holes for these these are not aligned as great as the factory trim piece either. On one side of my A/C controls, the buttons rub against the trip and tend to stick once depressed. I tried loosening the screws and adjusting the fit, but to no avail. The same can be said for the hazard light as well. The double DIN trim piece that is supposed to fit around the aftermarket stereo would not stay in the allocated tabs and kept falling off. A few dabs of hot glue helped to remedy this. Only came with two stereo mounting screws, so I had to use two more makeshift screws to mount the aftermarket stereo to the interior mounting brackets to avoid the stereo shifting while mounted. All other double DIN stereo kits I have utilized have always included 4 mounting screws for this reason.
Pros: Color match, included trim pieces.
Cons: Fitment, screws supplied, cheap screw mounting holes.
Very easy to assemble and install in 2007 Honda Civic. Worked well with the Pioneer cd player and matched the car interior fairly well. Would definitely recommend it.
Good replacement for factory trim panel. Simplified the job.
Pros: Color matched easy to install
Cons: Should say that the instructions are online or include a copy in the box
Fit well. Had no problem getting it in. Matched the car interior. Is good.
Installed in a 2006 Honda Civic. The dark gray was a great color match. Fit and finish was perfect!
Pros: Easy install! Great fit and finish.
Product is as described. The fit is nice but the color is just slightly off, but not the end of the world.
For the cost several issues with this product. Color is off, missing several mounting clips and screw holes are to small for the screws and cracked mounts for receiver, HVAC vent, Hazard switch and air back light. Had to reorder a replacement paint it to match and purchase smaller screws to mount everything.
When purchased with the radio from Crutchfield this was VERY affordable. The color is a bit off but not enough to make me upset.
Great product! The dark gray color looks factory. The Pioneer deck that I bought fits but it is pretty tight. The only downside is the sidewalls that hold the actual deck are plastic instead of metal like the OEM one.
Pros: Fits. Blends. Ease of install.
Cons: Plastic deck holders.
This work very well, and fit perfectly with no adjustments needed. Between the written instructions and the Youtube walkthrough video from Crutchfield, installation was easy.
Pros: Easy to install, fits well
Cons: Written instructions were not 100% clear but the Youtube video helped clear everything up
The unit (dark gray) matched very closely with my dash (2009 Honda Civic). Alignment was excellent and it was easy to snap in and out (I've had it out 4 times for various reasons related to the radio). There were two fit issues I encountered. First, the trim piece did not fit over the Blaupunkt radio I had purchased. It seems the Blaupunkt had sharp corners and the trip piece was designed for a small corner radius. I used sandpaper to square up the corners of the trim piece, which took a little while. The second fit issue was two of the heat/AC buttons rubbed against the edge of the cutout, causing the buttons to remain depressed, preventing them from popping back up. I had to sand the dash kit to open up that hole a little as well (there was not real adjustment slop in the screw holes). Other than that I am completely satisfied with the kit.
Pros: Color. Overall fit was very good. Price.
Cons: Small issue with the fit of one of the cutouts.
Worked well. Invest in a panel tool to get the old panels off - makes it MUCH easier without any damage. As others have said, the screw holes are too brittle and some of them crack when installing the old screws. Everything seems secure, but I hope there will not be long-term issues with it.
Pros: Fit nicely, very easy to install using the Crutchfield YouTube video for my car.
Cons: Some screw holes cracked when carefully installing the components.
This product allowed my Honda to have a regular single or double din radio installed. It works great and was easy to install. The only problem I had was the AC buttons at the far left and right getting stuck when pressed. I sanded down the edges just a little and the controls had no more problems.
Pros: Easy to install and looks great.
Cons: AC controls stuck but fixed by sanding a little.
Overall, it is working well. The color is a little off, but I expected that. The only real complaint was the quality of the plastic. A lot of the screw holes started to crack when the original screws were put in. We ended up heating the plastic to make it more flexible while putting the screws in.
Pros: Looks pretty good, and is working fine.
Cons: Brittle plastic
this is the way to go when replacing the factory head unit in a civic
Pros: makes it a snap
Basically what everyone else has mentioned. Way too much sanding and tweaking for a kit that i paid full price for.
Pros: New Headunit works fine
Cons: Changes the look of my dash compared to premium audio in 08 Civic EX Coupe. Tilts head unit upward a bit.
Good fit and color match. Had to file down the cutout for the A/C controls because it was interfering with button movement on the recirculate and defrost buttons, and it was harder to remove than the stock dash plate, when I needed to remove it to take a second look at something behind my HU.
Pros: Good color and texture match. Feels solid when you rest your hand on the base while using the touch interface on HU.
Cons: A/C controls cutout wasn't a perfect fit without filing down the cutout a little. Snaps were hard to remove after installing if you need a second look. When installing the A/C, hazard button, and passenger airbag indicator I reused the stock screws. Most of the screw holes seemed to be too small and cracked as I screwed in each screw. I'm worried the screw holes may eventually break completely and things will become loose.
I bought this scosche dash kit to replace the metra kit installed in my civic. The metra kit has a terrible angle that causes the screen to be unreadable. The scosche dash kit completely fixes the problem. The color match is close but not perfect. The lines and fit is very good but the climate control buttons can become stuck if you don't install it right. Highly recommend this kit.
Perfect match for the car.
Pros: Easy to install. Fits perfectly.
Well engineered and a snap to use. Wiring the radio and Metra adapter harness took longer than disassembling the dash to install the radio & kit. Straightforward, easy and a great match to the factory surround. The instructions were spot on. The only question was regarding two bolts below the factory radio not required with our kit. Very pleased.
Pros: Factory appearance, easy to install
Dash kit for 2006 Honda Civic Coupe fit perfectly. Good color match. Did have to do some minor trimming of the opening for climate controls because two of the control buttons were sticking. After a quick shaving with a utility knife everything fit and worked great.
Pros: Quality, color match, price.
Color is off slightly and every screw i screwed in to replace factory parts cracked. I hope it holds up in the long run. Glad I read review that says go slow and dont use electric screw driver.
Pros: Fits looks just like oem
Cons: Plastic is thin and cracked when putting screws in. Color is off.
Looks like it came from the factory. Same color as dash.
Pros: Easy to install
Everything fits perfect and makes the aftermarket unit look like it actually belongs with the car. Very easy transfer from old dash to new just a simple process
Pros: Looks very professional and blends in with stock solid and easy installation
5 star product if it would work without modification. I did have to use a X-acto knife to shave a couple of millimeters from the bottom lip of the opening for the HVAC buttons to prevent them from sticking. Also I wouldn't recommend reusing the screws that are removed from the OEM locations. They are too thick, and after the first screw split the mounting point, I switched to slightly smaller diameter screws and they worked perfectly. The color matches up nicely and snaps into the dash securely. Great product.
Pros: Color matches dark gray interior. Attaches to dash securely.
Cons: Have to trim HVAC opening slightly. You should reuse the Honda screws as they may split the mounting points.
Kit comes complete with everything needed (almost). Trial installation of factory components showed that some trimming of openings (HVAC and mounting holes) was needed prior to final installation. Color match with factory panels is very close (but not perfect). Mounting holes cracked when using factory screws to mount HVAC, Hazard, and Air Bag indicator light. I did call Crutchfield Support to ask about the short mounting screws and they told me exactly what I needed to get.
Pros: Dash panel is very close to factory color throughout (not painted). All parts fit together as per instructions. Inexpensive kit.
Cons: I needed to purchase longer mounting screws for the stereo that I was installing (Alpine CDE-151) as the ones that were included were too short.
If you have brown seats, carpet, and door panels order the taupe for your Honda civic.
Pros: -Looks really nice, clean look. -Good price when ordering with a stereo.
Cons: -Color is off a little, hard to notice though. -Screws that hold the deck in and heater controls in place are needed as the factory screws are too big that are on the back of the factory radio. -Need to file down the lower part of the HVAC controls. This is easy to do, use a pocket knife, stand it on edge and slide it back and forth to shave a bit of the plastic off. No fancy tools needed to do this and nothing is noticeable once assembled.
Everything fit great only negative was the instructions were not complete.
Pros: Fit and finish
Cons: Midway through the project the instructions skipped over some stuff
When I received the product there was no mention that my double-din stereo needed to be installed directly to this kit, without the mounting sleeve that it came with. The radio instructions didn't say that, the Scosche kit instructions didn't say that, and Crutchfield didn't say that either. The screws that came with the Kenwood unit I bought weren't even long enough to work because they were designed to use the sleeve. So there I was at 10:30 at night, confused as anything at the instructions so I called Crutchfield. They quickly told me that there are no instructions for what I needed to do to my Civic, and that the screws wouldn't work and I would have to go buy new ones. This is not what you want to hear at 10:30 at night when your car's dash is strung all over your garage. Also, there's plenty of room for the sleeve if the dash kit would have been made right. I have no idea why it's made this way. Now, any time I need to get into the back of the head unit I have to take my entire dash apart because I can't use the sleeve. Not cool. Additionally, my A/C controls barely fit, and some of the buttons stick. It doesn't seem a perfect fit.
Pros: It technically worked, barely.
Cons: Can't use double DIN sleeve with stereo installation, requiring you to mount your stereo directly to a '09 Honda Civic. A/C Controls didn't fit well into the Scosche dash replacement piece. Buttons stick. No instructions telling me that I would need to mount my stereo directly with screws that I would have to buy separately.Crutchfield response on 11/25/2015 Once we saw this review and the customer contacted our Tech Support team, we began to reevaluate the information we display for double-DIN kits. These kits do not require the mounting sleeve that generally come with new radios. We're also updating the availability of a package of screws we offer (item 120ISOPK) to help attaching the dash kit to the car stereo.
Darn near perfect fit - color match was perfect - easy fit, was impressed
Pros: Perfect color match
Cons: Needed to trim the a/c trim opening. The buttons were sticking on the recirculation - not a big thing, took a razor blade and just shaved a little bit at a time until it fit just right.
So helpful in getting the aftermarket stereo to look stock. It is a bit thinner than the stock dash piece so use a light hand- but once installed it looks like it came on the car from the factory.
Pros: Looks stock and matches the car almost perfectly. Made installation breeze.
Cons: A bit fragile so use a light hand when tightening down nuts.
The dash kit was pretty well built, but I had to file down the slot for the AC buttons. They were getting stuck in the 'down' position when I first installed the buttons. Yes, I tried moving them first, but there was too much plastic around the bottom. The OE screws cracked a few of the screw holes when I installed the hazard button and OE HVAC controls but it's holding real nicely regardless. The color was ALMOST perfect- you'd only see the difference if you stared at the two panels coming together for a while. The texture was perfect, and it went together real well. Overall, it's usable, and looks good.
Pros: Looks good, nice fit and finish on the dashboard itself.
Cons: Not so good fit and finish around the HVAC controls, needed some filing to allow buttons to work freely. Some screw holes cracked when using the OEM screws to reinstall the buttons, etc.
As explained. Fit 07 Si
installed in a 06 honda civic
Pros: easy to install
Cons: directions left out a few steps. feels sort of flimsy
This piece fit well and was fairly easy to install.
Pros: Perfect fit
Cons: Slight color variation
Crutchfield ships fast and complete which I think softens me up so I'm not so critical :-) The unit is a bit "crispier" (delicate) than was hoping but install went pretty smoothly. I took the advice of other reviewers and slowly screwed the head unit and pocket into place. The finish texture and look/feel is different than stock, but I think it's acceptable and I believe on the owner/installer (aren't we all both?) will only notice if they are *looking* to see the difference. Although a bit flimsy when apart, all the pieces come together fairly well and I haven't notice any shaking or movement on my single DIN unit. I did have to sand down the plastic near the HVAC controls to prevent my defroster button from sticking. It was actually quite a bit of sanding, so be careful you don't scratch the visible surface when sanding (I think the seams are where my fitment issues were). The pocket is great to store my phone, Sansa Clip (yeah, I still use Rhapsody) and USB Drive with plenty of room. Initial impression of quality: 6.1/10 Price: 9.7/10 (especially with one-day free ship - thanks C-field) Fit: 8.3/10 (sanding, filing, squeezing, pushing, etc.) Finish 8.5/10 (how it looks compared to stock) Since the OEM navi bezel with comparable hardware/brackets was ~$160 at the dealer, I would likely go this route again simply for the cost savings.
Pros: Cost, one day free ship
Cons: Material quality and fit and finish - although at this price point I don't think I'm that disappointed. If this were ~$100, I would expect much more.
Nice clean fit and look
Pros: Fit like a glove
The dash does fit technically fit in my 2010 honda civic. But A/C controls do not fit perfectly, the A/C knobs don't twist with ease anymore, and I can see that it has a big tolerance to fit many models
Pros: Installs securely
Cons: Not a exact perfect fit to my standards or to the stock dash before
The color, texture, and contour is ever so slightly off, and there are some small gaps around the passenger airbag light and hazard light buttons. The mounting/screw holes are a bit fragile as well, so make sure you have those screws lined up perfectly. Wish the ISO brackets weren't plastic-- they don't inspire a lot of confidence that they're going to hold up the head unit. Otherwise, it snapped into the dash and lined up pretty much perfectly.
Pros: Lines up perfectly with dash
Cons: Small gaps around buttons Plastic components are flimsy Color, texture, and contours are not a "perfect match," as advertised
Looks great! It took a little time getting the radio just right but worth every minute! Color isn't an exact match but very close! So thankful to be able to remove factory unit!
Pros: Works great, looks good, color is close
Cons: Bottom brackets should be metal not plastic.
Great product. Color matched good, and it was easy to install.
Pros: Easy to install. Sony XSP-N1BT Double DIN unit fit great. good color match. Had no trouble with my climate control knobs
Cons: Does slant back a little more than I like. My screen is my phone so I don't really have trouble with the sun.
I give it a second star because for the most part it was easy to install. The low rating is for 2 reasons. One is that my "max AC" button sticks. I was able to take it back apart and drill the holes a little bigger so I could adjust the heater unit just enough so that the button doesn't stick. The second, and biggest reason, is because it angles too much upward. This would seem to make sense so that it's easy for the driver and passenger to view the screen. However, during most parts of the day, in a Honda Civic the windshield lets a lot of sun in straight down on the dash and completely washes out the radio screen. During the middle of the day, the screen is washed out 3 out of 4 driving directions. They really need to instead try to make the screen straight vertical, or inset it further into the dash to get some shade. Not sure if I can do anything at this point since that is the design. Perhaps they will read this review and consider a different design.
Pros: Easy to install Looks like a factory finish
Cons: Slants upward allowing the sun to wash out the radio screen Heater unit did not fit well enough, causing one button to stick, until I was able to modify it to work.
Be ready to do some hefty modifications to make this work. I bought this kit along with the Alpine CDE-W265T to go in my 2010 Civic LX. AC buttons stuck like most say they will so I had to use a dremel to make that opening larger (not a big deal). The plastic posts that the screws for the climate controls, airbag light and hazard lights button all cracked, but still held tight. Then, the biggest issue, was the metal cage/sleeve for the Alpine stereo didn't fit in the "double din" opening" in this kit. I had to melt/cut the lip on the top and the bottom of the opening to remove the lips to make it fit. Also, the plastic ring/jacket that came with this kit to go around the stereo also did not fit properly. After all of that, I got the stereo installed and the color of the dash kit matched near perfect as far as I can tell and all of the holding clips held tight once the kit was snapped in.
Pros: I got the Alpine CDE-W265BT installed
Cons: Climate control buttons stuck and needed modding to make them function Plastic posts for the screws all cracked "Double din" opening was too small for the metal cage/sleeve of my double din stereo
When snapped into my dash, this kit fits fine but the color is slightly off. All OEM parts and pieces mounted pretty well but you might need to use some fine grit sand paper on the lower point where the climate controls sit. I found that my lower buttons would stick.
Pros: Ease of install, price, OEM like look and feel
Cons: Stereo mounting brackets are plastic, I wish they were metal and more secure feeling, color doesn't match, needs some sanding to make pieces fit and function properly.
Poor manufacture and materials! But it does the job (Day 1 so far)
Pros: Correct color after first receiving Dark Gray instead of Toupe. I spotted the difference, but it was extremely difficult to see. Once Taupe arrived, though, I could tell immediately it was the right color. The item packaging has 3 boxes with colors (Dark Gray, Toupe, Blue something) - but none were checked-marked. So make sure you are not getting Toupe insted of Dark Gray and vice versa! Fits the dash
Cons: Crutchfield lacks instructions for this item. A few thing worth mentioning: Once a plastic vent is installed, it will pretty much block a bolt for the stereo unit to half of one support bracket. The 2 x 8mm bolts will somewhat align through the bottom, but will not fit the plastic screw posts - they are too big and the screws need to be self-threading. I ended up getting a pair of different screws that fit. Fortunately, I had a another dash kit so I was able to fit the screw while the support
The color match is not great, but it's decent at this price. As others have noted here (and amazon reviews as well), the fit is not 100%. I had to take a dremel to the lower lip and bottom right corner where the buttons would stick. This was an extreme PITA, but I did eventually get it to fit. The retaining clips on the kit also pop out easily, so try not to pull it out once you've set it in there (I had to, due to fitment issues). I had no issues with the screw holes breaking (as others noted), but I did hand screw them in, and took care to not overtighten. Otherwise, it's a decent kit that gets the job done satisfactorily.
Pros: -Decent match to dark gray dashboard (for the price) -Other than the HVAC control area, there were no other fitment issues
Cons: The HVAC controls would stick when pushed, so the kit required some modification (sanded down lower lip and corner area of HVAC controls)
Fit is good no big gaps. Fit looks like could be stock. Color match a bit off. But close enough.
Pros: Looks stock with double din stereo.
Cons: Only con is color match not exact. A bit off but does the job would send back.
Required modifications to allow the buttons to pop out after they are pushed. Color is close but not a match.
Pros: Looks nice over all but...
Cons: Not a color match. Requires sanding on all ports where factory buttons will be installed otherwise buttons will not work properly.
The color is perfect, but the climate control buttons will stick in the "on" position if you don't modify the opening. I spent an hour with a Dremel and drill to modify it so the buttons would pop back up after releasing them.
Great factory look in the dash. Fit double din receiver perfectly. Great product at an even greater price!
Pros: Great fit. Easy to install. Color match.
It's awful. You buy something to make your car look and function correctly, this does neither. The HVAC controls don't fit so the bottom buttons are always pushed down (I need to pull it back out now to sand it down (it seems this is a standard feature of this unit). The screw holes will break. The metal clips will fly off if you attempt to remove the unit to fit the HVAC issue. It's not even close to the correct color (Dark Grey) it's far too blue so I now have a 2 tone dash. It's not even caused by sun damage, it's just a totally different color and texture to the original. As far as I can tell they didn't even test this on a car before mass producing them. Absolute garbage, find another way of doing it because this isn't the answer if you want your car to look anywhere near correct inside.
Pros: It fits, sort of.
Cons: The HVAC buttons are stuck down at the bottom (as many other reveiwers have also noticed. The screw holes will all break when screwing in (pretty much the first turn causes the break) The metal clips WILL fly off into the back of your dash if you try to take this off again to fix the HVAC issues. If you have dark grey it's not going to match the dark grey interior, even kind of. It's a completely different color. I now have 2 tone dash.Crutchfield response on 11/25/2014 We forwarded this review to our Technical Support team for follow-up. Lifetime tech support comes with every Crutchfield purchase.
The color matches the bezel it replaced and the fit and finish looks OEM. The retaining clips also line up very well with the factory holes.
Pros: Color matches the dash. Fits tight when buttoned down.
Cons: The bottom portion of the cut for the HVAC buttons needed to be sanded down a bit because the buttons were catching causing them to stick down when pressed. Some of the screw posts behind the bezel cracked as I was tightening the screw holding down the HVAC controls, air bag light, and hazard button.
Looks pretty good, but I had to use a dremel/sandpaper to bore out the holes so the climate control buttons would operate properly. Furthermore, every screw that went in sounded like it was going to crack the adapter. Also could use some more screw holes on the sides for more accurate mounting. A 5-star product with 2-star machining.
Cons: Brittle, poor machining.
Everything is fine with the fit of double din radios and factory pieces. Color match is horrible for a Civic Si so i would have to recommend anyone particular about the color to order the factory double din nav dash piece for color match.
Cons: color match is horrible for Si's
Color matched well (Dark grey) and seemed to fit as well as the factory dash. Well priced.
Pros: Includes single and dual DIN, everything was easy to install and sturdy.
Cons: Can't complain
Matches original dash exactly.
Pros: Easy install and looks original..
Works good.. Color doesn't match perfect. Fits and does what it's supposed to do.
Pros: Fits great made my install simple.
Cons: Color doesn't match perfect. But still looks good.
I am amazed that units like this are available. It is an exact replica of a the factory module..
Pros: ease of install
For the price you get what you paid for it. I had fitting problems with th ac controlers, and the airbag indicator. It also does not snap back perfictly to the dashboard. I had to take the dashboard apart several times for various reasons and no matter what I did it go back the way it is supposed to.
Pros: It's cheap
Cons: Its made cheap
just get it
Pros: does its job fits well no gaps
Cons: color doesnt match need to flie away the plastic arount the knobs antil they operate smoothly
Installed into a 2008 Honda Civic. Had no issues and the color is a great match to the rest of the dash.
Pros: Looks "factory" once complete. All buttons and controls worked on mine without any modification to the assembly.
Cons: I was reading the instructions word-for-word and it listed only the step to remove the climate controls from the factory assembly but didn't list the hazard button or passenger airbag light. I felt stupid once I realized what was wrong after I placed the new assembly but the instructions were indeed missing those steps!
overall appearance is good.only problem i had was the ac control head unit switches were rubbing on lower half of trim panel had to resort to minor filing to allow for free movement of switch selection
Pros: would use again without hesitation. after all it wouldnt be custom if there wasnt a little work involved
Cons: plastic a little to hard should be a little better quality
It looks good and is a pretty sturdy piece of plastic. Color is a little off, but it still looks good to me. Only problem I had, that others had mentioned, is that the screws will crack the plastic around the round bits the screws fit into. They still felt somewhat secure though. I think it's just the type of plastic. It's so dense, that it can't stretch at all, so it cracks a bit around that area.
Pros: Cheap, and everything fit just fine on my 2010 Civic LX.
Cons: Cracking plastic around the screw holes on the inside.
Cons: Came with all parts as advertised and easy to install
This was a great product to complete installation
Pros: great fit
Exactly as described.
Pros: Fits great. Looks great. Single din or double din adapter.
Worked to install double din in my 07 civic si coupe... Color wasn't perfect match and needed to file out the A/C area so the buttons don't stick
Pros: Worked Cheap with HU purchase
Cons: Color didn't match A/C button area needed to be modified to fit
06 civic. You need it. Short of making your own or cutting it up and letting it look bad, you need it. Just get it. ha
Pros: took like ten minutes tops to switch everything from the old one to the new one. Everything fit spot on!
Cons: The plastic was not ment for the cold and didn't seem very forgiving so be kind of gentle.
Looks almost factory but color is a little off. Had to trip around HVAC opening to keep buttons from sticking but perfect after that.
Pros: Straight forward install
Cons: Color just a little off
Overall the panel fit the car correctly. I had read several of the reviews by other people who bought it and they were true to fact. All of the holes in the fascia had to be trimmed to accommodate the factory switches, The color was very close but not exact and all of the screw posts where the switches mounted cracked while installing the screws. When the panel was installed in the dash of the car, the finished job was very good.
Pros: A good overall match and fit for the Honda civic.
Cons: Modifications had to be made to the factory switches.
This was ok but had to do some trimming for buttons sticking on climate control. Color was very close
Pros: Color match
Cons: Sticking climate control buttons
Made installation not only possible but easy. It looks great and is very solid. If you break the plastic putting the screws in, you are getting in too big of a hurry. Take your time and do it right. You won't be disappointed. I did file the edge below the button panel because at first the bottom row of buttons were sticking but it only took a few minutes. I am very impressed at the quality and the price. I'm also thankful that these are available because the stock civic head unit is complete garbage.
Pros: Quality Price Stability Ease of installation
Cons: Needs some very slight fine tuning
I used this adapter to install a new Kenwood DDX-470 double-din receiver. It worked wonderfully, and the price was superb! I only had to do some very minor sanding on the bottom portion to keep my A/C buttons from sticking in the down position, but other than that, I had no trouble at all. The color is only slightly different than my original dash, but not enough to be of any concern, and is likely due to years of weathering and sun in the harsh Florida environment. I would certainly recommend it to anyone who needed to upgrade their factory stereo. You can't go wrong.
Pros: Great fit, superb price, gets the job done with ease
Cons: Color is slightly off (taupe), but not by much and slight sanding was needed to ensure A/C button controls remained free
I used this trim kit to replace the factory radio with a single DIN in my 2010 civic ex. It fits well and matches the dash color. I had the same issue some others mentioned with the AC buttons interfering with the cutout, but a file did the trick. One other thing I ran into - there are 2 screws that screw into the bottom of the brackets to attach it to the dash. On the factory trim they are machine screws into a metal bracket, with this trim kit the screws go into plastic instead so the machine screws don't work - at least I couldn't get them to. I used a couple of extra Phillips pan head screws that were left over in the factory trim piece that held on the old radio. They worked much better. The holes didn't line up all that we'll for these screws either, but the plastic bends easy enough to make it work. I would buy it again.
Pros: Matches the factory dash well. Good price.
Cons: A little extra work to get everything to work right once it's installed.
Very easy to install. Build quality is great.
Once you get it in, it is in. They did a decent job with this for the price I think. There are a few issues with it, that requires some work, but it snaps in and makes no noise, so it is a definite functional unit.
Pros: It snaps right in.
Cons: If you buy this unit, you will need the following: 1. 220 grit sandpaper 2. Thinner screws You have to sand down the excess molding, use the factory molding as a guide otherwise your passenger airbag light and hazard button will not align correctly. You will need thinner screws because each of the screw slots are not the same size, they slight vary and half of them will crack and snap.Also once you mount the radio, the bottom screw holes will not align with the metal bracket under the dash
I like the kit, the fit with my temperature control buttons was a little off and I needed to do some filing. The fit after the trim was pretty good but the head unit is held at a slight upwards angle and causes some wash out. overall im satisfied for the price I paid and the color match was good.
Pros: Color match, ease of instillation
Cons: slight trim needed, angle of display
it fits perfectly but it doent match the color on my dashboard.
I put a DVD audio deck in my '09 civic using this adapter. Over all it is a very good adapter however, there are a few minor annoyances. First the color is slightly off. Not really that noticeable, and I kind of figured it wouldn't match perfectly so I wasn't disappointed. Anyway, I'm not sure that it would match if it came from Honda. I imagine that the color between batches of plastic don't match perfectly. Kind of like trying to match the paint of bedroom. Second, is the fit of the components that are transferred from the old adapter to this new one. The passenger air bag light, emergency flasher button, and the climate controls get transferred and installed. The adapter had extra plastic material that interfered with the fit of the air bag light and climate controls. The air bag light didn't sit flush like it did in the factory adapter. I had to file off a bit of flash from the adapter, then it fit. Also the climate control buttons stuck. Again, with a little filing, the fit nicely. Make sure to test all the climate controls after installing them into this adapter, and sand any excess plastic to make everything fit. I would recommend this adapter to anyone looking to upgrade their receiver. Just have a bit of emery cloth on hand when you begin. Expect a slight color mismatch. I'm sure you'll be pleased with the results... I was.
Pros: Price and overall fit
Cons: Slight color mismatch, and minor sanding to make controls fit.
Good fit in honda civic coupe
Pros: Easy installation
Cons: Slightly different color/ texture from original dash
This was a very good quality product, the fitment was perfect with no deformities, and the color was almost spot on.
Pros: Fitment What you paid for
Cons: color is slightly off
Pros: Great fit and color match.
Cons: No instructions for removal of factory unit since this product only applies to one make vehicle.
The product works, but I would by no means say it's "great" product. The screw holes are all super tight and a couple of them broke when re-attaching the controls. The day after I installed, my AC button started sticking. I had to literally pull down on the trim to get get button to release. The color is a bit off (not that bad IMO). The directions that came with were almost worthless.
Pros: Works for replacing Honda Civic factory radio
Cons: AC buttons stick, screw holes crack, color not exact match.
It works. The color is a little off, and the hvac controls were a little snug once screwed back in, but it gets the job done.
Pros: Fits perfectly.
Cons: Color/Snug HVAC controls.
This worked like a charm,nothing was left to chance every piece fit just like it came from the factory installed.
Pros: Ease of installation was a breeze
Fit in the dash nicely, does what it's supposed to do.
Perfectly fit the Honda civic coupe on installing an after market radios. The color also blends very well with the factory dash color of the vehicle.
Overall I am happy with this dash kit. Tho color of the kit is slightly different from my dashboard, but close enough that I can live I live with the difference. Two of the screws holes that hold the heating controls cracked while I was putting in the screws, but they still seemed to hold the screws firmly.
The adapter works as advertised. It seems to integrate well with a Kenwood DNX7190HD.
Pros: It works
I bought this adapter for my new Alpine CDE147BT car deck as Crutchfield stated that it would fit my car. It did! My only complaint is that the color is different from the stock dash, but it is hardly noticable. It was easy to install and everything fit perfectly. I highly recommend it to anyone looking to replace their factory stereo system.
Pros: Easy to install, looks great, and it is sturdy.
Cons: Color is off a little bit....but not enough for me to care about it.....cause my system sounds awesome!
I almost bought this same item for twice as much on another website, my wallet thanks you:-)
Pros: It fits without any modification to my car
Looks great and fits great! Fairly easy to install!
Pros: Easy to install. Looks good.
Fits just like an oem piece, couldn't be happier with it.
No explanation on how to get the A/C knobs off. They just pop off, but I was nervous and didn't want to break them.
Works.. wrong color ac buttons stick without sanding it.. it is what it is
Read reviews that the quality of this kit was questionable in regards to both fit and color. Small mounting holes stripping out and color just a shade off. It was such a concern for me that it match that I ordered an OEM DDin Gunmetal faceplate, but needed this kit for the internal side brackets. Without dis-assembly I thought it may be possible to use the original non-navigation system brackets but I ordered this kit just in case. The original brackets turned out to be completely different and this kits brackets came in handy. The color on this kits faceplate was a closer match than the OEM, but the form fit and function was of lesser quality and chose to go with the OEM although just a shade off in color. Otherwise, the kit includes everything you will need to go from a Din to DDin for this application.
Pros: Crutchfield provides this kit at a significant discount. It was worth not having to chase down appropriate brackets upon realizing original Din brackets would not work. It works great if you rather not pay OEM prices.
Cons: Quality of the mounting points were questionable, plastic looked of lesser quality particularly from the backside, although it may have worked.
This is obviously NOT a product made by "HONDA", i could tell right from when i handled it; the plastic just felt different. the color was not exactly the same but close enough.
Pros: fit was exact. color was mostly good match.
Cons: the screw holes for your parts needing to attach are very weak and will split; be extremly careful when aiming and starting the threads for attaching the parts like the climate control and hazard flasher button and airbag light; I also had to just slightly shave off the bottom edge below where the buttons for Rear defroster and recerc. buttons are because the fit was very tight causing the two buttons to stick in when pressed.
I am very happy with this kit! It's easy to install, color match is great, and looks like a factory piece!
Pros: Easy install, looks great, fits perfect!
Cons: Have to shave just a hair of the hole for the thermastat buttons, but you won't anything aftermarket that doesn't require some type of adjusting.
This dash adapter was a perfect fit in my 2007 Honda Civic Si. No mods at all. The only problem is that the color is not exact, but it is close enough that no one will notice unless they are looking for it. Otherwise I would have given it 5 stars.
Pros: Fit perfectly and needed no modification.
Cons: Color is a shade or two lighter, but it doesn't look bad.
Pretty simple install, however I had to file down the ac control button area so that it fit correctly, for the price of it I kinda expected that.
Pros: Cheap, simplistic install, allowed me to replace my factory radio.
Cons: Very very very close to the texture and color of the piece it was replacing, but not exact, no one entering my car will ever notice. Required slight personal editing to fit the ac controls.
Unfortunately/apparently, it is TOO difficult to match the stock 'taupe' (a brown variation) dashboard color. This is definitely light-grey - NOT taupe.
Pros: Screw holes seemed in the right places ... via the mold. Mounting bracket is lighter weight (plastic) than stock (metal).
Cons: color STILL not matching taupe dash pieces
Using this in a 2008 Civic... I was a little unsure of how the install would go based on other reviews, but everything went okay and I am happy with my purchase. Doing my homework (both here and around the internet) paid off. The adapter fits perfectly and the color match is very good, at least on the dark gray. You might notice a slight difference depending on lighting, but it isn't glaring. Install went okay, but you need to go slow. Take your time and don't rush. I followed an earlier reviewer's advice and heated up the screws immediately before installing each one. A few seconds with a lighter did the trick for me. I only cracked one post, and that was because I went a little too fast and overtightened it a bit. Fortunately, it still held in place. The only other issue I ran into was with the bottom role of temperature controls sticking. It was an easy fix though; Removed that module, sanded down the bottom part of that opening, and all was good.
Pros: Fits, good color match
Cons: Easy to break if you aren't careful
Good solid fit. No issues with Kenwood Radio Install aside from removing the factory radio itself
Pros: Sturdy, Perfect fit
Cons: Color match is off by a shade which isn't noticeable unless you really look hard and after that it will bug you a little bit.
Good fit, easy to install however my biggest complaint is the color match. It is not the exact color of my 2010 Honda Civic lx-s . I have a grey dashboard. When putting on the heater vent and heater control some of the screw did crack the rear plastic. Since the weight of these things is not much, I did not get any squeak sound or any physical mismatch from it. Therefore if you are going to order and want to upgrade your factory radio and you can live with not the exact color match then go for it.
Pros: fit, functional
Cons: color match is off, rear screw on of unit is not strong
The only thing I'd change about this kit would be providing side mounts that would allow for the screws that came with the Alpine radio to fit. Aside from that, the color matched perfectly, its sturdy, and I'm not getting any squeaking or creeking noises inside the can. I'd definitely buy another one of these kits.
Pros: Matches the civic dashboard color, sturdy.
Cons: Hard to mount the radio, you may need different screws.
As with previous buyers I also found that the self-tapping screws (which came with the kit) when inserted into their screw holes seemed to crack the post some. A somewhat over-tight screw would definitely strip any of these holes. But with caution and patience I was able to swap the stock componants over to this one and mount it all in the dash succesively. Looks good and nothing has yet to come loose.
Pros: Looks good.
Cons: Cracked receiving posts.
Poor installation instructions. Color was off. Mounting brackets were plastic and didn't align well. The brackets should definitely have been made of metal. The OEM mounting was all metal and very strong. This was a really cheap and some areas cracked when using the installing the screws, which are required to stabilize the unit! My advice would be to modify the unit so that the OEM metal mountings could be used, or Schoshe should make the mounting brackets of metal.
Pros: It fit!
Cons: Cheap plastic mounting brackets. Very poor instructions. Poor color match. Very, very poor quality.
Was exactly what I needed. Installed myself on a 2010 civic and it fit perfectly. I'm not sure if they updated the product but I had no problems with splitting.
Pros: Looks great, got plenty of compliments that it looked great
Cons: Was a little frustrating getting the knobs for the temp and fan speed since it had no instruction on removing them. Simple flat head screwdriver and some nervous prying fixed it though
The color and finish look to be a identicle to the factory piece and everything fit perfectly for intalling a double din head unit. It does angle the radio up a little more than I would like which makes the display on the radio catch a little more light from the window. This makes the display, which is barely bright enough to read in daylight even worse. I also had toe same post splitting problem as other people. The posts seem long enough and the holes seem the same diameter as the factory piece so I think the problem is with the type of plastic used. Honda's is less brittle and more flexible. I read the review where someone heated the screws, good idea, unfortunately I read it after the install. At least the parts that hang by the split posts still seem secure and weigh almost nothing.
Pros: Fits and looks good.
Cons: Brittle plastic screw posts. Make sure head unit has a bright display.
First of all, I would have to agree with the other reviews about the color match being a few shades off. It looks ok, but is clearly not an exact match or texture. As for the "post splitting" issue, i simply heated up the stock screws with a propane torch. I didn't get them real hot, just a few seconds in the flame. This worked perfectly, not a single crack in the plastic screw posts. They seemed to soften the plastic just enough so it wouldn't crack or split. I also had to file the opening for the ac/heater control so the buttons wouldn't get held up and stick on the surrounding cover. After the cautious reinstallation, it looks pretty good. The adaptor does clip into the dash well and fits great, I just wish I didn't have to take the extra steps for fit and finish. Thanks to all the people who reviewed this before me. I knew what to look for when doing it myself.
Pros: Fits in with the rest of the dash very well
Cons: Color match and texture is a bit off. Caution is needed when reinstalling the stock components into the adaptor. Minor modification is needed to get a perfect ac/heater control fit.
The quality of this adapter leaves room for improvement. As I transferred components to the new adapter, twisting the self-tapping screws into the holes, I could hear a snapping sound. Upon close inspection I could see that the plastic had actually cracked so the screw was no longer held in place as firmly as would otherwise be the case. And I had to manually file the opening of a couple of components to make them fit properly. This was most notable on the climate controls where the buttons on the entire second row would stick when pressed. Good thing I checked this before installing the adapter in the dash. Given all this, I was holding my breath that the thing would actually align properly when the time came to install it. As it turned out, it was a perfect fit.
Pros: Good color match; Perfect fit in the dash
Cons: holes are off a little...nearly all of them. Plastic receiving holes for screws tend to split and crack.
The adapter works and fits perfect. Overall it looks original. Wish it was more sturdy and not all plastic. OEM parts seems more rugged with the steel frame mount box.
I installed the kit it in a 2010 LX Civic and it looks fine, but I had issues with the install. First off is the "post splitting" issue. The kit requires use of the screws from the OEM dash to attach the vent, hazard light button, air bag indicator, and air conditioning controls. The OEM screws are a little longer and slightly larger in diameter than #8 half inch screws. I attached all the parts using the OEM screws, and at least half of the posts split. Clearly the holes in the posts are too small. I was not happy with the situation and Crutchfield sent me another kit. Instead of using the OEM screws I used #8 screws. This time I slowly threaded the #8 screws into each hole, and I still got 1 nice split and a couple of minor ones. I then tried boring the holes out with a 5/32 drill bit, and that totally resolved the issue (using #8 screws) as I got no further splits. The other issue I had was the air conditioning/heat controls being pressed up against the lip of the hole in the new dash kit causing one of the buttons to stick. I filed the area down, and this resolved the issue. So in conclusion, this thing requires some extra work to get it in properly. I wish I could get an OEM aftermarket dash kit, but that does not appear to be an option on a 2010 Civic (at least per my local dealer). I want to give Crutchfield a big thumbs up for their support. They've been awesome both times I've contacted them with issues.
Cheaply made. The plastic cracks as you screw items in. Buttons dont look snug, such as passenger airbag notifier. Did not fit my new stereo as expected: Couldn't attach alpine radio without removing outer metal shell, which means I'll have to remove the whole dash to access the back of the radio. I will be calling Crutchfield.
Installed without any problem on my 2010 Honda Civic Coupe. Color seems to match the interior as well, no complaints.
Installation was a breeze. The color matched as well. My only minor complaint is the angle of my new deck. It faces upward a bit rather than outward. I also would have liked to have the option of putting a plate over the opening rather than have another empty space.
I put this in My Wifes coupe and everything worked perfect. The fit, the color, no issues whatsoever. The only "issue" I had was that I underestimated the amouth of force for it to snap in to place, a little elbow grease and ta-da.
This kits fits perfectly into the factory dash and matches the contours, holds the Double DIN stereo securely, and all the controls turn freely but... the color does not match at all. Crutchfield offered to refund and pay for return shipping so I will be buying the OEM dash assembly from Honda.
Installed on a 08 civic sedan the dark grey dashboard. The color is off by a few shades compared to the stock dash but not too noticeable. The fit for the clips were perfect. Had to file the opening around the AC controls as the buttons were sticking. Will have to wait and see how it holds up. But, it seems to work.
This "adapter" is a poorly made thin and flimsy replacement for the factory dash. The plastic cracks when you bolt on your dash items (vent, lights, etc.) even if your careful. It never snapped into the dash properly, almost like it wasn't made for my civic.... Crutchfield is refunding my money, don't waste yours!
I purchased this kit to install my Pioneer DEH-P5000UB. This kit along with the wiring harness adapter made my car stereo installation a snap. The only slight hiccups was that the opening seemed a bit narrow. When I tried to slide the radio installation sleeve in the opening it was a bit narrow. So I left the back mounting screws a bit loose until I got the sleeve in place then tightened the screws. Also the factory face plate had 2 extra screws that held the face plate to the dash that were located in the small storage compartment under the radio. Those two screws are no longer used. So the unit is not as secure as factory. However the installed panel looks great!! It seems to be secure enough it does not wiggle, vibrate or squeak. I am so happy that this product is available for my car. I love my new radio. I look forward to driving to work now and enjoying my new sounds.
I used this kit in my new 2008 civic hybrid, and this kit was well worth the money. I used it to install my Kenwood DNX8120, it made installation quick, neat and makes the new system look like it came factory with the car!
This fits and does the job. The color is good with my dark gray, and it pops right in. The receiver support is a bit lacking compared to what was holding my stock radio/cd player. This only has 2 screws on each side of the plastic brackets; the stock one was metal and completely supported the radio/cd unit on all sides. It's too bad it wouldn't fit into the Scosche unit. Also, instructions were lacking for this unit and for this part of the installation in the Crutchfield mastersheet instructions.
I bought this for my 07 civic sedan the dark grey dashboard. The color is off by a few shades compared to the stock dash but not too noticeable. The fit for the clips were perfect. Now the hole in the dash for the stereo is where it gets tricky. For a regular single din stereo it fits well, but for a double din some adjustments need to be made. I actually needed to make the hole a little bit but cutting it with a saw. After the cutting the stereo fit good but wished I didnt have to go to all that extra trouble.
Installation is pretty simple. My AC button in the bottom right corner stuck after installing. I had to file down that corner to allow the button to be pushed and not stick. Color is not an exact match but it looks okay. I used the sleeve that came with my receiver instead of screwing my radio directly to the brackets, it pushes the top part of the brackets out, but the screws in the bottom pocket keep it tight.
Like everyone has said it is a tad light but you only notice if your look for it. I was very happy with the way it fit, very easy. The only thing i did not like is that the braces that hold in the deck are plastic, also the screws that came with my head unit were not long enought to reach threw the plastice and into the deck, I bought the kenwood DDX8017. Also the 2 8mm bolts were very hard to put back in becuse the plastic kept moving around. I just ended up leaveng them out! there is like 9 clips holding the deck in place.
The fit is great, the quality is great, the texture of the dash adapter matches perfectly! I have an Si Sedan ('08) with the dark grey dashboard, and the adapter is too light. I would give it a 7 out of 10. The OEM hardware that was taken out of the original dash did not fit into the Scosche. The Metra dash adapter had a color that was much closer, and even includes hardware, but the build quality is cheaper. I tried both, and ended up using the Scosche simply because I had no choice. I hope that a better matching product comes out soon.
I was a little concerned about this matching the dash and all, but it fits perfect and looks great! no problems whatsoever
I installed this adapter kit in my 2008 Honda Civic LX yesterday and it works great. Nice, tight fit, holds my Alpine cd deck secure and looks great, like original equipment. I read an earlier review about how much lighter the gray color was. I have a dark gray dash and the color of the piece is slightly lighter, but hardly noticeable. The manufacturer might have adjusted their color to get closer to original equipment color. I couldn't be happier with the results.
The adapter fit like a glove. I was very displeased with the color though, It is at least 3 shades lighter than the rest of the dash. Very satisfied with Crutchfields service, I'll definitely be back!!

Good fit and made everything look factory. Only complaint is main screw hole mounts crack when installing receiver. Either heat the screw enough to slightly melt plastic when installing or drill mount holes a little larger to accommodate the screw or the posts will crack. Best to heat screws with lighter or larger flame and all's good.[ Frank Jun 09, 2016 ]
