Made things easy great fit
Pros: Easy install
Fit the radio chassis and the interior of the car perfectly. However, the kit was missing two of the machine screws for the radio. Additionally, the two that were supplied did not fit the radio chassis at all. Ended up buying 4 new machine screws.
Even if this had not been offered as a free item with the purchase of the Pioneer car stereo, I would have bought it. This item makes installing the stereo in the car infinitely easier. Each system I've bought from Crutchfield has included the install kit. Won't check out without it.
Pros: You'll see!
Not bad for a universal fit. It might be better if the brackets were made of metal
Pros: Not bad for universal fit
Does what it is advertised to do. Instructions are very poor. I was not told I had to remove the faceplate and the tab frame on the stereo unit. I also had to break off tabs to hold the faceplate on the stereo in order to make a good fit. After a little fussing, it is in and works great! Just be aware each install has its quirks!
Cons: Poor instructions
Fits as advertised. Made it easy for self install
Dash kit works with radio.
Cons: Directions on how to put this together and connect Radio aren't good. doesn't mention that radio trim must be removed. Pictures showing how to attach to radio are too small and dark and are hard to read. When I called Crutchfield for help, they said to follow directions that came with the mount.
This didn't fit my 2009 Versa Hatchback as it doesn't fit properly with the OEM dash trim . The screws that came with the kit didn't seem to be the appropriate ones as they were a little too large. After a few calls to tech support, the last tech suggested that I try the OEM brackets, which worked. The only problem is that the bottom tray is not completely secured since I couldn't get the OEM brackets to match up perfectly with the bottom tray.
Pros: free with my purchase
Cons: didn't fit properly with OEM dash trim
This mounting unit is a joke. The screws that came with it did not fit the stereo unit. It made installation tedious and instead of a two hour tops installations into a 4 hour ordeal. It did not fit into the radio space. Why make something that is supposed to support a good amount of weight out of plastic? I just reused the factory brackets from the original radio. Very disappointed.
Cons: Does not fit car, made installation a hassle, made of plastic,
I was able to use the pouch with modifications. The brackets do not fit. I used the factory brackets.
Pros: I was able to use the pouch.
Cons: Had to be creative to make it work.
This kit fit my car perfectly with no problems.
Pros: Easy to install and fit the radio I bought with no alterations needed.
Cons: The instructions for the wiring harness were not clear. A call to tech services cleared up all problems and the raido worked on the first try.
Installed in a 2012 Versa Hatchback It fits perfectly good finish
Was easy enough to use, but I felt as if the screws I used to screw into the plastic of the catch-bin were going to break it. Overall: Acceptable, but could have been better.
Pros: Cheap, and it worked...eventually
Cons: Wasn't entirely clear how to position the radio and the little catch-bin. Also, the catch-bin had holes in the rear end, and I had to tape them over to keep things from one day falling out through them.
Easy install! Poor directions on removing existing panels to gain access. Panel comes forward and then up, don't pull up on the panel - it will break some tabs. Kit did not include nor inform me that I needed an antennae adapter cable too. This should have come with the kit or at least shown up as an option on the Crutchfield website. Overall - love the kits available, but needs a little more tweaking to get my 5 stars. Yes, I would use this kit again.

If you need an install kit for a 2009 Nissan Versa, be aware that this BARELY gets the job done. I would have been willing to pay triple for a pair of metal brackets, and ALL THE NEEDED HARDWARE. The factory radio in the Nissan Versa has the brackets for the double DIN radio riveted into the actual radio. There are 2 screws that come with the radio, and nowhere in the Crutchfield instructions does it specify that additional screws are needed. I had to sacrifice 2 screws from the mounting of the radio just to get this to stay put properly.
Pros: It was part of the "$15 of Installation Gear Included" deal so I didn't pay full price
Cons: It was part of the "$15 of Installation Gear Included" Brittle plastic Not all hardware is included Difficult to seat properly After the install, it doesn't sit as neatly as I would have hoped
This kit fits correctly and looks nice in the Nissan Versa. If you're installing a stereo in a Versa that had no system at all you will have to use the bolts that go into the side of the factory piece of plastic that goes in the place where you put the stereo.
Pros: Fits well, decent construction
Cons: Had to use bolts/screws from the car to get it to stay correctly
Although this was my first self-install, I know it looks decent... It IS a universal kit. I wish it had the top trim.
Pros: Good fit and easy to figure out
Cons: Universal kit - missing top trim
Ok product, easy to install. exact fit.
Pros: Exact fit, easy mount up
Cons: Could have been a little stronger, almost broke when I was mounting the deck to it
The Nissan Versa Kit is cheaply made and looks bad with the stereo in the dashboard. After Google, I got METRA 99-7603 NISSAN VERSA 2007-2011 INSTALL KIT and it looks VERY GOOD in versa 2010 SL. Thanks Crutchfield for a free gift by this kit but this is not the best gift from them you can get. One star only for kit, not for BEST services from Crutchfield.
didnt fit right. i had to make adjustments to it so that it would fit and it still doesn't look right
Pros: no pros
Cons: didnt fit.
There was nothing wrong with my kit, but it also wasn't anything amazing or special. I don't see any reason to rate it perfect. I did have one issue, but that could be blamed more on specific circumstances or the stereo, not the kit. And that was that the screws supplied with my stereo which secure the stereo to the kit were not long enough. I could get them started but it was putting way too much pressure on the kit and since they were designed to be flush mount screws the plastic of the kit was bowing. It was a simple fix though, I just picked up some new screws from the local hardware store for about $1
This kit fits a nissan versa just fine...until you put the dash panels back on. Then you realize that it is almost 1/4" off! Had to manually elongate the holes and test fit numerous times in order to make it work at all. It also doesn not allow the use of the trim ring that comes with a single DIN unit leaving gaps around the install. This thing leaves MUCH to be desired. I would have used the stock metal brackets, but they wouldnt work with the plastic pocket included in the kit. Be prepared for a poor fit and lots of hand fitting.
Pros: it was cheap...
Cons: terrible fit
Everything with my stereo installation went pretty smoothly, except for when it came time to put the dashboard pieces back onto my car. There are two plastic brackets in this kit. They screw onto the stereo and the little cubby hole. But when you tighten the screws, it causes the front of the bracket to bulge out in the front. This made it so that I couldn't click the dashboard back into place. I ended up throwing out the plastic brackets and using the original metal brackets that were holding my original stereo into my car.
Because it doesn't fit in the standard way, the instructions should be clearer on how to make it fit. I see some people got the trim installed, but I couldn't. I saw one picture illustration, that showed how it had to be done on some Japanese cars. I think it was provided by the radio. Since the instructions were made up for my car, I think they should have been detailed for the different kind of installation necessary for my car. This is my third radio for three different cars and this is the only set of instructions that I have been unhappy with using.
Once all closed up, the finish is first-rate. Only gripe: the documentation could be even more idiot-proof than it is. Fortunately, the phone support was excellent. All my dealings with this company made me feel like I was dealing with a family-run outfit that put a premium on excellence and customer satisfaction. Thank you, guys.
This kit is not very good quality! I installed it in my Versa and when i went to put the dash trim peice back on it would not fit and click into place so i removed the stereo and done some sanding on the install bracket and now it fits fine and everthing clicks into place correctly.
sides of the mount come all the way to the trim, preventing you from getting the ring around the unit, leaving slight gaps around the stereo. Also, instructions should have stressed where to place the unit as I had to remove and reinstall several times in order to get the trim back on ok. If the unit is too far forward it pushes the mount sides outwards which is too wide for the factory trim. I might take everything apart and maybe use the factory metal mounts instead as they sit back farther. (but then again, maybe not)
The Nissan Versa Kit is cheaply made and badly fits the stereo.
It fitted perfectly
Fitted perfectly on my 2011 Nissan Versa. Using car stereo Sony MEXBT3800U. There was some confusion while fitting the stereo to this unit, but Crutchfield tech helped.
was recommended and part of kit [ Mikael Jan 26, 2016 ]
