    Not great, but it does the job

    Used this kit to install an aftermarket stereo in my daughter's 2004 Honda CRV. I had done quite a bit of research and this was the only kit that I found to work on our vehicle. It's design is adequate and it did work, but nothing impressive. The instructions were less than straight forward and if I had not done previous aftermarket installations I would've had a considerably more difficult time. The plastic components are rather thin and I had to be very careful not to snap the pieces during installation. I also had to alter the product so that the visible face frame did not bow in the middle after installation. It does the job and looks good enough after completion, but I'm left with doubts about the long term quality of the design.

    It serves its purpose.

    The product is made of what seems to be pretty sturdy plastic. Because the package includes hardware for a wide range of years, there are some pieces that need to be cut, as I had to do for the piece for my 2001 Honda Accord. The instructions for doing this are not very good and the plastic is hard to cut, not only due to the material but also because the piece that needed to be cut off was right next to the piece I needed to keep. Because of this I ended up accidentally cutting off a bracket that is needed for mounting the stereo because my hand slipped. I was still able to mount the stereo fairly secure anyways but I wish I had looked elsewhere for a better product made specifically for my car.

    READ THIS FIRST IF YOU HAVE A 2001 HONDA ACCORD!

    Some have returned this product because they say it doesn't fit their 2001 Honda Accord. In the instruction manual pg 7, line 8 where it says "From the mounting brackets cut and remove tabs "B"", You have to either cut or simply break these tabs off, other wise it won't fit. In other words, READ AND FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS! If you don't remove the TABS next to the "B's" molded on the plastic, you will be trying to mount the unit too high in the console and will not be able to close the console. As soon as I took those tabs off, everything went in like a glove and it works absolutely perfect!

    After struggling to understand the directions, I dove in and hit a stopping point when the directions said to trim tabs on housing. No pics, no description of what tabs, or how many of them. Tried calling tech support at Metra - on hold for an hour. Finally got to speak to an installer at Bestbuy and they said to remove the factory mounts from factory radio and just use them. Once I did this, no issues. So, bottom line, didn't even need an install kit. DO NOT BUY THIS for an 01 Honda Accord. It sux.

    Ive done a bunch of car stereo installs and never had a problem with one of these before this time. While working on this I noticed that the instructions told me to keep only the tabs that were a labeled with specific letters. As I removed tabs though I noticed that some tabs have no labels but did need to be removed. The bezel that fits around the front of the stereo did not fit properly and broke during install I ended up gluing it on. the stereo was NOT held in place securely and rocks up and down. Bad overall.

    Works, But Could Look Better

    Had the local store install this, along with a new head unit and two speaker pairs. It works and performs its functional job well enough, and I can't speak to ease of installation, but it could looks much nicer than it does. Some of the edges are slightly offset from both the dash and the head unit, leaving a sort of pyramid look to the whole assembly. (It doesn't bother me much, but I can imagine others might take issue.) I suspect too many models/years are being catered to in one design...

    This is by far the most complete kit sold locally

    product worked perfectly and was the most complete kit I could find without ordering something from A specialty car audio dealer. if you are replacing an aftermarket radio instead of A factory radio, this is definitely the install kit your going to need.

    Best Buy mobile installation seems to have gone away and we were barely able to find this in dash mount kit in store. Just make sure you have a plastic cutter or a knife that can saw away the extra pieces. Simple, straightforward, easy to use.

    Nicely designed, this did what it should. I would buy it again. I have owned several Metra kits over the years; all seamlessly integrated into my vehicle dash.

    Fits a 2003 Honda Odyssey. Instructions weren’t exactly the best but after a little inspection I was able to figure it out without issue. Well worth the price.

    This made the install of my new stereo a breeze. The quality was not the best I have ever seen bud turned out looking great with a few extra minutes of finishing work. Would definitely recommend to otheres.

    Depending on your car type you have to take some parts off the old system to fit the new stuff. The instructions don't tell you this so be prepared to think outside the instruction box!

    There are other direct fit options out there, but this "universal" option was in store and did the job. Somewhat confusing if you've never done it before (I have, so it was easier).

    The pieces didn't quite fit in the best, but it worked for a smaller starter car radio. I would recommend the Best Buy install crew if you really aren't sure what you're doing!

    You won’t have any issues install this with your aftermarket radio. I recommend it for sure.

    Overall, decent appearance when installed into the car. It has a space underneath the receiver location for the remote or your phone, etc.

    Besides the package not having the detail instructions, the ones I downloaded from the website were not complete. Then the housing did not fit in the opening in the car.
