Car Stereo Installation reviews in Portland

I went to their shop, picked out the unit I wanted, and waited while they put it in.

It took them quite a long time to install, although they weren't busy, and after a couple days I noticed that one of the heat vents above the unit was loose. That didn't really bother me. Later when I was vacuuming the car I found some screws on the floor. Over the next few months I continued to find screws under the mats and seats. Then the console under the stereo, which holds a couple little drawers and is attached to the gear shift, started to loosen. I tried to push it back in place and use some of the screws to attach it but couldn't get it to go. Then the glove box loosened up and fell down so it had to be screwed back into position. Fortunately I had a number of screws to choose from so I reattached it. Okay, I was getting tired of this. I had installed a stereo previously so I had the directions to dismantle the dashboard. When I did I realized a huge chunk of the back of the console was broken off. They hadn't bothered to tell me they had broken the console when installing it. And also--not entirely surprising--they had screwed it back in with the minimum number of screws so several connections were loose.

I really didn't want to see them again and called around to find a used console, but nobody had one. When I called

to tell them about the problem they set up an appointment for me a week later to "evaluate" the problem. They told me I could leave the car for the day and they'd look at it. (Appointments to install stereos there are same day) That was today and I probably won't take it in for an "evaluation".

They talked between themselves in Korean while I was standing there and while I was asking them about pricing so that surprised me at first and then made me a little nervous because I was excluded from what was going on. After the stereo was installed and I had driven away I realized that my toll passes for the Hood River bridge were gone and they were under the slot that they had worked on to install my radio. My car is pretty tidy so it was easy to see that they had disappeared and I searched my whole car for them. It was just a shady thing and I wouldn't go back again because it didn't feel like a trustworthy place as a result. The stereo does work though.

Great experience. They installed the connection for less than they originally estimated. It works great, although I have to have the iPod volume turned way up, and the car volume as well. But now I can play my iPod in the car. Very cool.

Pretty good prices and the install was free, I knew what stereo I wanted from the sales add, but the salesman talked me into the speakers, and they work great too.

I was pleased with the over all service. However, they had computer problems while I was making the purchase and they were not able to complete my transaction with their system down. They really should have a back up system.

installation took a little longer than we had expected, but they did the job very well and we are very pleased with their installation. We will go back to them again.
