I have a 2003 Honda Pilot that I use this cassette adapter in. This Insignia adapter is the only one of its kind that works for me.
I first bought this adapter back in 2015 and it lasted all the way into 2018. The little thing gave out after three whole years of heavy use. I’d say that’s pretty impressive for a little plastic box!
When my old Insignia adapter died, I first tried to replace it with options from Amazon. It was the free shipping that tempted me with those; I really should have just gone with this Insignia adapter from the get go! I went through two different adapters from Amazon - one rattled obnoxiously, the other only played sound out of the right side of my car. When those both failed to do the job, I bought a new Insignia cassette adapter from Best Buy.
I’m extremely happy with my Insignia adapter. From now on, I’m sticking with this brand!
Words of advise: DO NOT leave your adapter sitting in the tape deck when not in use. The tape deck is like an oven, and the adapter is made of plastic and is sensative to temperature changes. Basically, keep your adapter within room temperature range - not too hot or too cold. If it’s out of that range, don’t try to use your adapter because your tape deck will probably just spit it out. If it’s too hot, run the AC on high and hold your adapter in front of a vent, exposing both sides to the cool air. If it’s too cold, good old friction should do - rub the adapter against your clothes (jeans are good for this) to get the heat going.
