    Fits - Doesn't Look OEM

    This kit includes every conceivable setup you can imagine for an installation. You will dispose of 2/3 of the included parts, because you won't need them. The installation instructions are open to interpretation since they don't exactly match the product, but it worked and it fits nicely in my 2005 Mustang. Replacing the double DIN factory unit with a new single DIN, I even got a little storage cubby out of it! The plastic is flimsy and the top of the aforementioned cubby is visibly bowed. When locked in, the receiver is slightly recessed, making it look decidedly aftermarket. It worked. It fit. I kept it. Try to find a better kit, if you can.

    This kit fit my daughters Ford Focus perfectly. The only thing was the instructions. I had to read them several times to make sure I had the proper hardware arrangement as the kit fit several of the Ford vehicles. That might just have been me though. The kit replaced a "double din" stock radio and gave her a nice storage place below the single din radio that we used as a replacement of the stock one. Nice fit and look.

    It definitely is a one size fits all

    Its great that it is a one size fits all....all the cars you can have it would fit into. the problem is that the guide on the box for recommended parts is inaccurate. I had to go to Best Buy three times to get the right parts because I bought what was recommended through them. Thank god for the helpful person at GeekSquad. It doesn't look as nice as the Factory radio and kit, but it will do.

    Didn't work for my truck even though it listed my truck model and year. Two hour drive home to find that no matter how or what I tried it wouldn't fit! Not sure if someone had taken parts from the package I purchased or if the package was mislabeled. Either way I still don't have a properly mounted stereo do to someone's short fall.

    Hard install

    Used the double din assembly part and it got the radio just fine. It was when I tried putting it in the area where the radio goes that was the hard part. There are two tabs that I couldn't get past sides of the console area so I ended up cutting those off with a hacksaw just to get them to fit. After that it was good.

    This fit my 08 F150 XL perfectly, I opted for the single DIN opening with storage shelf. It's nice that it comes with several options whether you have a double DIN touchscreen or single DIN stereo. It also came with new hardware which was awesome as I had to break the old screws just to get my older radio out. Great bang for your buck.

    This is the easiest installation I've done on a car stereo. The kit is three pieces and a direct fit for double din video receivers. One note, make sure you have it perfect on the front edge or the rounded front may stick out along the top or bottom of the vehicle front bezel once installed, and it's very difficult to remove thereafter.

    This kit is a decent value for being cheap. All it is is just the holster for the radio. No wire harness or antenna. The plastic is pretty durable and can handle a little bending without cracking. It leaves a tiny gap in my truck but not really noticeable.

    I had a friend tell me his story of buying a double din unit to replace his stock radio. He went on to tell me that he did not purchase the install kit and just used some black duct tape and foam to finish his install. Trust me, you should use the install kit. Clean as stock if not better.

    this works and fit in my ford focus ZX4 however it did not fit as well as I would have liked on the inside of the dashboard. I had to force a little bit to make everything align but it is stable without any breakages.

    July 1 we had a new Kenwood in dash deck put into our 2007 Ford Fusion, the installation kit was a perfect fit and it looks like it came with the vehicle. We are so happy with the Metra install kit.

    This unit was labeled as correct for my vehicle but it did not fit and was missing parts...Best Buy handled the return promptly, as always. I will continue to shop at Best Buy for all my electronic needs.

    Wasn't sure how good of a fit this would be but it fits great. Installed it in a 2005 Ford Focus without issue. Makes the whole car interior look better now that the old shabby stock radio is in the trash!

    This was my second purchase of this item. The first one broke along the sides. Would recommend changing the design or materials to reinforce where it anchors to the vehicle on a DIN setup.

    It worked but I had to break the clips off in the back to fit it in my dash! Other than that looks good with the install!

    Easy to use install kit. I would not have been able to install without it. Although, there are tabs that prevent placement in smaller areas. The tabs needed to be removed. Otherwise it worked great.

    This kit does what it is supposed to! It holds my stereo just fine and has a deep den for my remote, CD cases, and whatever else I want to put in it. A must for after-market stereos. Decent priced too!

    This kit worked perfectly in a 2005 Ford focus. Removed the stock radio that was looking pretty shabby. Don't forget the wiring harness, that's a separate purchase.

    The Metra installation kit for Ford vehicles is easy to use. And allows most people the change or install an aftermarket car stereo with ease.
