It is very easy to install. In the instructions it says to take off the bumber and the hood but when I took it off all i did was take out two screws to loosen up the bumber and it was easy to reach. It would take you about 15 minutes to install. It is very accurrate about 1 minute after you start riding. The engine heat must affect it when you are stopped. I will contact you if it does not work on my 06. It is one of the features I liked about my fusion.
The temp sensor on the surface looks to be a royal PITA to install, considering it just plugs into an existing socket on the wiring harness... The hood and bumper come off and the sensor is segregated from the engine compartment (heat) by the bumper assembly. Regarding accuracy, it's as good as any other temp guage I've had on any other vehicle, like my truck... The bumper is black and therefore absorbs sunlight and heat which will affect readings while stopped. Provided there's adequate real OAT feeding the temp sensor it's accurate.
