    Never knew installing a radio could be so easy!

    The wires on this harness were color coded and matched the wire colors on a radio I had owned for abour 15 or 20 years (which I was installing in my car), All I had to do was strip insolation, twist wires together, apply the wire nots, then plug it in to the car harness. Worked the 1st time! And to think, I almost tried to put this radio in by tracing wires, etc. I will never install a car radio without one of these harnesses ever again!!! Worth every penney.

    It’s exactly what you need for many, MANY different Subaru’s. Used to install the Sony XAV-AX100 into my new to me 2004 WRX Wagon, my 3rd Rex, and I’ve used this to install head units into all three I’ve owned over the last ~15 years. Yep. It’s the right Subaru one for meee!!!

    I bought this adapter harness along with an aftermarket radio to install into my 2005 Subaru Impreza. This adapter is a must for installing any radio. I double checked all the wire connections on the adapter harness and all the wires matches to the radio harness. I connected and soldered all the wires and wrapped with electrical tape and the radio was ready for install.

    Do you really need this

    If you have some wiring skills you may not need this. However it does make installation quicker and easier. My advice is purchase this when you buy your stereo and if you feel comfortable that you can wire it without it just return it.

    This item does exactly what the manufacturer and Best Buy's website advertise it will do. Makes wiring your head unit very easy. I've used several different kinds of harnesses and adapters in the past, but METRA has always been reliable, and easy to use!

    Harness allowed for quick and efficient installation of a new Pioneer stereo in my 2003 Subaru. It sounds better than the OEM one that I used for years!

    I had to solder the harness to my harness that came with the stereo, the description and pin out made the installation easy and simple. It was only in my case where soldering was necessary, you could use other non-solder solutions otherwise.

    Using this harness avoids cutting into the the car's wiring harness. By plugging in to the original harness you simplify installation, reduce the risk of poor connections and if need be allow the OEM radio to be put back in.

    Not a whole lot that needs to be said with an item like this. Worked exactly as described with my Pioneer AVH-1300NEX connecting to my 2007 Subaru Forester.

    No problems with this unit. Does it’s job perfectly but it could be more robust. At its price point it is just right for the job.

    To easily connect your radio to your car wiring harness without affecting your car's wires. Just connect the radio wires to this and click it into place. Saves warranty and eliminates lease issues.

    It's an item you need if you're installing an after market radio, but the price is a little steep considering what it is. I am checking I recommend only because there is no other option
