Toyotas and just about everything else still have far better safety and relaibility ratings than GMs. Don't be gullible every time a scare hits.
Directions should come with the CD player; try to find the manufacturer's web site if you don't have them. Then you unscrew everything, being careful not to snap any plastic, unplug everything, then plug in the new stuff and put it back together. If it's not meant for a Toyota, find your car's factory service manual it should have an audio wiring diagram in one of the electrical sections then you have to solder and heat shrink tubing all the individual wires together.
Best reliability from JD powers went to Buick, the last I checked. That's a GM brand. Also, most Chevys have equal safety. Some have better and less are liable to be sold with life-threatening defects. Toyota has had to pull a good amount of its line out of the showrooms for safety recalls. Their supporters don't have a leg to stand on, anymore. This wasn't a scare, this was very, very real. As I said to someone else, earlier, your head does not belong in the sand.

That's not what the US government believes. They sued.
Also, Toyota has had more "unintended acceleration" issues than all of the other automakers combined over the last 15 years. Your head does not belong in the sand.
but more on topic: here is a decent guide for generally installing a new stereo in to a car. idk know the specifics on a POS Toyata :P
