Average Customer Review(s):
installed as a package w/alpine receiver and looks elegant.
Fits perfect in my 09 GTI. I was actually able to flush mount the head unit instead of having it stick out like many install kits I have seen. So it looks very clean. No wavy gaps around the edges or anything like some kits I've used had.
Pros: Well it is just a mounting kit but it fits just like it should. And better than many others I've used.
Pros: Very easy to install.
Cons: I wish there was a better solution to make the stereo install look less aftermarket.
Simple to install, fits well, and makes your aftermarket stereo look like it came from the factory. What more could you want?
Fit perfectly, no issue with installing a double DIN head unit in our VW.
Pros: Easy to follow instructions
Fits like a glove.
This mont seems to work in most VW Jettas made from 2010 and up. I have a 2010 Jetta S and this baby worked like a charm. Especially nice that it comes with a tray for smaller car radeo's. It's also just as sturdy as the original insert.
Radio is solidly mounted
Pros: Looks great & perfect fit
sosche dash kit worked like a charm! it looks amazing.
Good product good price, makes Install a breeze and looks factory when completed
Pros: No mods needed for aftermarket receiver install
Cons: Didn't include any hardware to assemble plastic bits together
Not bad for fitting a square peg into a round hole. Tight solid mount.
Pros: Good solid, tight mount. DIN removal tools can't be used so theft won't be an issue. Gaps on all sides are tight, leaving a clean look.
Cons: No instructions. Had to figure it out, but not too difficult to figure out either. Had to pull out additional cage that factory radio simply slid in. Not that big deal, but had to mount new radio directly to cage. New radio sleeve does not fit, so can't get new radio out without disassembling dash...Again. Hopefully won't have to remove. Flat front plate doesn't curve like dash in center, but not too noticeable.
Fits perfectly with the Kenwood receiver. No gaps and pops right in.
This product fits perfect! It was easy to install and I was provided with an extra bolts the screw into the deck that were supposed to have with the aftermarket deck.
It fit the car, but not the radio. Unless you shave the edges there is no way to fit the faceplate for the head unit. When I called Crutchfield to tell them all they could tell me was to call Scosche. That's the kind of customer service I didn't expect.
Pros: Perfect fit in the dash. Securely attaches to the stereo and car
Very well made, high quality fit and finish. Looks like a real VW part!
Pros: Great quality and construction. Fits as would a stock VW part.
Cons: None so far.
Fits dash well. Looks great
Pros: Nice fit
Works and looks great there is a little gap when using single din and plastic will break so be careful not to screw to tight
It's pretty easy to figure out and it did it's job; my Kenwood deck fit the double din opening in my 2011 Jetta. My only problem with the kit is that one of the predrilled holes split whenever I drove the screw in. It wasn't an aggressive maneuver or anything, it should not have broken so I guess just be extremely careful.
Pros: It fits
Cons: Weak Construction
Great qualit and looks good
Pros: price and quality
To a casual eye the fit and finish of this product looks fine. However the fit and color aren't a perfect match in my car. Close enough though.
Pros: Easy installation.
Cons: Does not fit quite as well as stock stereo Missing bolts to connect stereo
Perfect fit and match to my 2011 Jetta. Easy to put together and install.
Makes the ease of installation a breeze.
Excellent fit.....looks great
I liked how it fit and the looked
Pros: Easy install
This faceplate fit perfect immediately and matches the VW Jetta plastic, so it looks great too. Great product.
Pros: Great fit and great look.
Looks and fit like oem
I like simple and clean and this product does that for me. I didn't have to mess with the install so that could have been a tough one.
Pros: Clean and simple. Seems to be a very good fit for my car.
The install kit was a little confusing at first. I wish the instructions were a little better. Once figured out it became quit easy to install. Only problem I had was deciding whether to use the metal box mount or the plastic mount. Used the plastic.
Pros: Once all figured out very easy to install.
Cons: Needed a little better instruction. Didn't know whether to use the metal box or the plastic one. Lost time in installing onto dash. From having to switching from one to another. Need better instructions for the wiring harness and the mounting pieces. But it was well worth the time and effort that was put in the installation.
It gets the job done, but doesn't looks as good as the new head unit does in the car. Sort of distracts from the awesomeness of the fancy new touchscreen or whatever head unit you're putting in. There are better kits out there if you're willing to spend a bit more.
Pros: Definitely works. No doubt about that. Gets the job done and in the end, that's what matters.
Cons: Overall aesthetic is pretty bland.
Fits great! Exactly as I expected it to be and the Crutchfield team was there to answer any questions about installations.
The install is easy but fit and finish leave something to be desired.
Pros: Lines up well with factory hardware.
Cons: Gap between radio and filler panel. Mounting hardware is a bit flimsy and cracks easily.
The package came with the wrong parts (two right brackets) which i had to modify to hold the head unit properly. Not sure if that affected the fit but there was a small gap at the bottom of the bezel that had to be filled in.
Cons: Wrong parts
Good product. Not the sexiest thing but functional and supplies by a great company. Crutchfield is solid
Pros: Very functional
Cons: Appearance is not very refined
For an aftermarket trim this has a pretty good fit. You can tell the difference between the stock and aftermarket pieces but the lines are good. Actually impressed
Perfect fit. Slightly different than the stock black but acceptable.
Easy to install and it fits perfectly.
It works, but did not meet my expectations. you can see space between the radio and the adapter. It looks pretty good, but I am a very demanding person with my car and I'm not 100% satisfied.
Pros: It is the same color, but it is not perfect.It notes that it is not a computer manufactured by Volkswagen....
Cons: You can see space between the radio and the adapter.
Looks great and fit perfectly in my 2011 Jetta.
Pros: Looks as if though it was always there. Snug and perfect fit.
Fits the double-DIN radio space of the 2009 VW Jetta perfectly.
Pros: Works exactly as it should.
Easy -- This matches my VW 2006 Jetta's Dash perfectly. Perfect fit.
Pros: Fits & matches the dash.
This dash kit was really easy to use and install, looks great in the dash of my VW CC, the arc of the dash kit doesn't match up 100% with the factory surround piece but it is not very noticeable unless you are really picky like I am.
Pros: Great fit, easy to use, looks great
Cons: off by just a little bit
Looks Nice. I put it in my 2008 R32 and it matches the factory dash almost perfectly. At the top its a little flat where the factory dash is bowed slightly, but I think it doesn't look any worse than with the factory stereo installed.
Not much to say, installed a double DIN unit in my 2008 Jetta. Fit is good.
This product made for an easy install in my 2007 Jetta, replacing the factory stereo with a double DIn Pioneer 720BT. Everything went together easily and fit right into the dash opening. The finish of the face plate is a perfect match for the factory dash materials, but the top side of the face plate shows a little bit of separation from the factory trim piece above it. I notice it when I look hard, but otherwise it is perfect. My only other issue with the product is that it is 100% plastic. I didn't strip any screws putting it together, and it seems completely stable, so I'm not concerned by it, but I was expecting a metal frame with a plastic face. For a free installation kit, though, I'm not going to complain.
Pros: Free, easy to assemble and install, finish matches factory trim
Cons: not a perfect fit, but very close; all plastic construction
Looks great. Easy install.
Works as advertised
Pros: Fit perfectly in 2010 VW Sportwagen
Cons: Appearance of cheap plastic
Installed in 2009 VW Eos. Exact fit using factory mounting points. No gaps.
Pros: Easy install, looks great
This actually worked
Everything fit well but, the side brackets that screw into the face...are built poorly. With just a little tension, the screws cracked the brackets. Little cheaply made. Be careful, don't tighten that much at all.
Easy to use. Color matched the trim around it. Bigger gap around the unit than I was expecting
Pros: matches trim around it
Cons: bigger gap around unit than I like
Exactly what I needed for my aftermarket double din stereo!
Pros: great fit Love the flexibility if you want single or double din with the cubby hole included
Cons: none so far
fits perfectly into my car like Crutchfield said it would thanks!
Good color match but poor fit. Top isn't flush with car trim and when using as a single din, there is a gap between stereo and shelf. I can see through the gap and see the wires. Very poor product. Ps I have a 2009 vw rabbit
Pros: Color is ok
Cons: Not flush with trim and shelf gap makes it look cheep
Installed double din stereo to replace OEM in my MKV GTi. Perfect fit into dash, nice material finish and touch.
Pros: quality feel and easy as could be to install.
Easy to assemble and looks great
Pros: perfect fit
Assembly is easy. Lets you use a single or double Din
Pros: Color match is pretty close. No gap around edges
Fit perfectly in my 2011 Jetta without a single issue. The face plate is a little plain, but looks like part of the car so it doesn't look out of place.
Pros: Perfect fit. Came with plenty of pieces to accommodate many different installations
This adapter works well and is very secure however the visual of how it fits is not exact it is a little less than a great fit...but it does the job and serves its purpose
It fitted nicely. Although, I would like it to be more snug. There is noticeable gaps between the kit and the unit. Another thing is the unit will not sit flush on the kit and is slightly raised. If you played around with it you might be able to have it sit flushed, but it did not bother me. The kit itself fit snug in the OEM slot. Although there is a very noticeable gap on the top edge. Either the top of the console area is curved and the kit is not, or vice versa. but the gap is noticable. Maybe my kit was warped. but that's how i got it. I don't really mind. Overall I am okay with how it looks.
Pros: -does its job -oem finish -easy to install -near perfect fit
Cons: -noticeable gaps ( but bearable) -gap on top ( mine might have been warped)
This VW receiver kit was used on a 2008 VW Jetta and the fit is spot on. I also own a 2009 Jetta with the stock radio in it and it is very difficult to tell the difference between the two. If you are replacing your stock VW double DIN radio you will not be disappointed with this trim and mounting kit.
Pros: Looks like it came from the factory.
Easy to install. Fit as described
Pros: Easy to install. Fit as described. Looks professional.
Fits the opening very nicely and the color/texture matches the surrounding OEM panels almost perfectly. The variable depth screw holes make for a very good flush-mount setup that looks extremely clean. Easy to install. Attach the new head unit, then use 4 existing screws to mount the trim piece to the dash cage built in to the vehicle. The opening is the exact size of a double-DIN unit and doesn't require additional trim pieces that will most likely come with your head unit, which makes the install even cleaner looking. Units that are just a touch screen look very impressive.
Pros: color matches, variable depth mounting.
Cons: not a very strong piece of plastic. Needs to be shored up in the back to keep the mount flush on the bottom. Some stronger bracing would eliminate the problem.
Fit just like the factory
Pros: filled the whole fit great
Looks good in the vehicle, easy to install and pretty solid construction.
Pros: Looks stock Easy install
Cons: none so far
Great fit - looks OEM - the cubby hole could be a little better looking . . .
Had my doubts initially thinking it wouldn't match but after install, my Pioneer looks like it came from VW factory. Everything is flush and color blends well with dash.
Pros: Easy install
Clean install, some fitment problems, but that's the nature of plastic
Pros: goes in well
Cons: needed to shave off a few pieces.
This item was free through purchasing the pioneer avh-3500bhs it was almost a perfect. These were both installed in a 2008 vw jetta se. Shipping was also fast and free
Pros: Almost perfect fit
Cons: Small gap between stereo and trim barely noticeable when installed
Product is of acceptable quality and directions were clear. As noted by others, it's free with your order, so not a lot to complain about. This is an example of why I buy from Crutchfield. Finish was not quite what I wanted, so I ended up ordering another install kit from different vendor. the bottom tray was a little out of round. But it would have worked fine if I decided to use it.
Pros: Free. The Best Value.
Cons: Finish was slightly less than perfect match with OEM
Perfect. Looks original.
First of all it's free when purchasing a HU with Crutchfield, so it is hard to complain about it. But I think the match to the rest of the dash surround was perfect and it is sturdy. Only reason for not giving 5 stars is the bottom tray was warped slightly so there is a small gap from the bottom of the HU and the top of the tray. Install note: You do not use the DIN sleave with this kit. The HU screws directly to the kit. First time I have encountered this but it works well but now can't slide HU out when I add amp later. Will have to dismantle dash again.
Pros: Finish perfect match Sturdy construction
Cons: Slight gap between tray and HU
Great fit and easy install. Lined up nicely with the factory screw holes.
It does what it says but not well. What passes for a cage is two plastic sides and I could barely screw it all together properly (creaking cracking sounds). Also because my headunit was secondhand it didn't have screws and the ones included with this kit didn't fit. The frame around the outside was slightly too big for the unit and I had to put some felt to fill the difference. Pioneer AVIC-F90BT in '08 VW Eos
Pros: My new headunit is mounted finally.
Cons: Plastic. Old Scosche dash kits had metal cages, much better.
Worthless. It came with 2 left brackets instead of a left and a right, so I had to return it.
Pros: bought from Crutchfield, returned with zero hassle.
Cons: wasn't factory packaged properly so it was unusable
holds the radio great.but does not fit flush.ITS OK
Looks real good in the dash, makes it look like the Alpine came from VW that way. The only compaint I have is there is a bit of a gap tween the plate and the receiver. But no one else seems to notice
Pros: Looks factory
Cons: Missing some hardware, not the best instructions in the world.
Nice and simple to install aftermarket radio
Pros: Easy installation, match perfectly with my dash.
Cons: The opening only match with some radio only
Looks nice but it was missing 4 screws?
Pros: Looks good.. Compliments cars interior ez install
Cons: Missing 4 screws that attaches the face to the bezel...
I chose the Scosche VW2317AB Dash Kit to mitigate the labor and need to fabricate an installation kit. Fabrication simply isn't worth it in this instance. [ Patrick Feb 17, 2017 ]

This will fill the Area left after the Deck faceplate is installed between the deck and the cubby where the deck is due to be installed. This extra item will make the deck flush with the stock cubby and satisfy your OCD after install is complete. [ Hardt Jan 23, 2017 ]
