It appears the 2019 Toyota Camry (XLE and XLS models only) is still available with a CD player.

I believe you can buy external USB CD/DVD drives pretty inexpensively for computers that don't have one built in.

Based on how short this list is, it sounds like my next car just might be my first one that doesn't have a CD player in it..

It is odd that some of the cars the OP listed are upmarket cars like Mercedes, Acura and BMW. I wonder if that has anything to do with the typical client that buys those cars are older with more daily responsibilities and they don't have the time or the know how to convert their CD's onto a flash drive.

Then again with satellite radio one can listen to pretty much anything you want.
LOL! I'm older. I have been in IT all my life. And I have more flash drives than I have fingers. I also have several Sansa clips that I use for listening to my own music at the gym (I don't like to carry a phone and I generally don't care much for streaming music). In the car, I really prefer to play my CDs. They sound so much better than mp3 files. For audiophiles, CDs rule in the car. If I wind up with a car without a player, I'll have one installed.
(I'd never pay for satellite radio.)

Yup. I bought one for my new laptop.

It's also an 11-year-old design from Chrysler that was poorly reviewed when new. Me and my dad had a 2009 Journey as a rental in July 2009. Playskool grade plastic on the interior, uncomfortable seats, and rattles. The SUV had just been built in March, it should have still felt rock solid in July. I was 16 at the time and could tell it wasn't a quality vehicle. And this same body style is still being sold new for 2019.

As for the CD player, my mom got an aftermarket CD player for her 1984 Lincoln Town Car in 1997. They still sell aftermarket CD players, but now they're generally used on the newer cars!

F is right, i use an external dvd drive on my laptop. i paid something like $30 for it. i do have an older laptop that i am repurposing for use as a linux computer that has a built in drive though.

Agreed. I still listen to CD's in my car even though I can just as easily stream from my phone via Bluetooth or USB cable to an mp3 player.


Plus some artists avoid digital releases. Tool's next album due in Aug is CD/Vinyl only. I know I can rip it to digital...but i'm looking forward to buying a CD and playing it on the CD player in my car.

I'm frustrated by the lack of cars with 8-track players. I can't find any.

FYI a CD is digital. All of Tools albums are readily available in digital format.
