I have a 2011 with what must be the base radio -- no nav, bluetooth, etc. I can fit a double DIN, but just don't know about the electronic part.

Thanx, all.
The electronic part is fairly easy also.
You will lose the steering wheel buttons. This is true for all make/model cars when you add an aftermarket radio. Luckily http://www.pac-audio.com makes an adapter.
