DOES NOT FIT PIONEER MOTORIZED FACE DVD UNIT

Original Wirehead from Alexandria, Ohio on 12/4/2012

I cant give it a ZERO or I would. I ordered all the accessories to install a DVD Double DIN head unit in a 2006 Suzuki Grand Vitara. I ordered the steering wheel adapter, the wire harness adapter and the much hated "In-dash Receiver Kit". I just got off the phone with Metra Tech Support and they were plenty helpful and Honest with their information. Back to Crutchfield- Under the "What Fits My Car" App I found this face adapter kit and the Pioneer DVD unit AVH-P4400BH, both are said to fit my car. Although Crutchfields software does not specify where in the car these two items DO fit together, in harmony, in the car. Maybe its in the trunk? Because its not the Dash! The trim ring is 1/8" TOO SMALL to fit the radio. Back to Metra- Tech Support advised me that Pioneer is indeed a well known radio, but the "MOTORIZED" face causes the trim ring to be too ungodly small. So, yes the radio will fit my car. The face adapter/ trim ring fits my car. -But the two items DO NOT FIT MY CAR, together in the dash. After being an ELECTRONIC REPAIR TECHNICIAN for +30 years, I've repaired more radios, amps, speakers, tvs, slot machines, alarm systems, phone systems, 8 track players, cassette players, CD players, DVD players, jukeboxes, pinball machines to know that 2 pieces sometimes MUST fit together harmousily to make the item work for the customer. Its called COMMON SENSE. Somebody in Crutchfields Tech Support Install Dept failed to TRY a Pioneer 4400 in the trim ring. ITS A NO GO

Pros: The money I paid for my items transferred seamlessly into Crutchfields bank account for my purchase. The transaction completed faster than I could imagine, it was painless. To be honest, Crutchfield said they WOULD send me out another kit that DONT fit, If I damaged this one trying to modify it to fit the radio. Thats not a lot of help, first selling things that dont fit together and then offering to give away things that dont fit together. I cant think of any PROS at this point.

Cons: Assuming Pioneer is top shelf merchandise is normally a no brainer. I cant fault them. I fault Metra and Crutchfield for not testing their merchadise on Pioneer motorized face DVD type equipment. After slaving in the repair industry for so many years and seeing things that dont fit, yea Im used to it, but I thought computers were supposed to make things better? A properly managed TECH SUPPORT DEPT should have tested fitment of every radio they sell, that they say fits, because it dont...

I am really happy I ordered this, when it came down to installing a new radio. It fits awesome and looks like I payed someone to install it. Great product would tell others about it.
