    Anyone here had any issues putting in an aftermarket audio deck? Also, do you have a brand recommendations for bracket mounts or deck brands?

    Above advice.

    Also, this is one of the easiest vehicles to replace the head unit on. Very straightforward. Scosche makes some good stuff. I'm using their color matched install kit and wiring harness.

    I installed a Clarion cx501 few months ago, the main reason I went with this unit is because it is one of the few head units that have a built in bluetooth mic so you don't have to run a seperate mic somewhere in your vehicle.

    I also used the metra dash kit and wiring harness, and everything lined up well. Like the others have said it was very easy to do. A good resource to use for a step by step would be *********.
