WTB factory CD stereo

Post by FarmerRick » Thu May 23, 2019 11:50 am

Just got a 2008 Vibe for my son for school. The LED display in the stereo is dead.

Anyone have a stock stereo laying around they would ship to 68164 for cheap?

I dont know what you consider cheap, but you can put in an aftermarket unit for under $100. Check out www.crutchfield.com

Yeah, I was just thinking maybe someone still had a factory stereo collecting dust on a shelf...

Hi, I took an OEM unit out of the 09 I bought. The CD doesn't work however. Let me know if you are interested. Dan

The 2009 radio is different than the 2008. Not sure if the plugs on the back are the same as I've never looked that far into it.

As others mentioned, best bet is to pick up a cheap aftermarket headunit. You can then have bluetooth, aux, and other modern features for minimal cost.
