2019 Acura ILX
2019 & 2020 Acura TLX
2019 Audi A3 - in the glove box
2019 & 2020 BMW 2-Series
2019 Honda HR-V
2019 Infiniti Q50
2019 Mercedes CLA
2019 Nissan Frontier
2019 Nissan Rogue Sport
2019 & 2020 Nissan Z
2019 Toyota Prius
2019 Volkswagen Beetle
2019 Volkswagen Jetta (SEL only!) - In the glove box
2019 Volkswagen Passat

Please feel free to add to this list. I'm hoping by the end of this thread there is a comprehensive list that will help others who include this as a constraint to what car they will buy.

Please DO NOT feel free to extol on the advantages of your favorite alternative to using CDs. That IS NOT the purpose of this thread.

I am also frustrated by the lack of cars which include spare tires (compact or full) and will establish a thread on that when I have a longer list than the couple I know of right now.

Just had my car in for service and every 2019 Infiniti in the showroom, including a Q50, has a CD player.

Current Civic is pretty easy to install a double din radio with cd player if you don't care about losing rear camera.

It is more than likely you are referring to pirated mp3s that have very low bit rate than high quality rips.

I'm not surprised older IT guys like you prefer CD and DVDs while most of us IT consultants that do the real high level IT work would not care one bit about CD or DVD if you understand the technology.
Considering the fact that the username has the word "Mom" in the it, I wouldn't think it would be appropriate to refer to her as an IT guy. Just FYI.

I never stated that I could NOT. When I buy CDs from Amazon, most of them come with the "auto rip" where you can download the mp3 file. But those files are NOT in lossless format. It takes a lot of extra time to rip my CDs, and quite frankly, I would rather NOT spend my time doing that - I'd rather grab my CD and go.

So you can take your condescending attitude and hit the door. There are plenty of "old school" IT folks that don't care, and don't give a crap about the sound of music. I am not one of them. And I would put my hearing up against yours any day. I have played the CD AND the ripped mp3 - I absolutely can HEAR the difference. Good grief. What a simple-minded piece of work you are. Get along now...go play outside.

Having attempted it a few times with my 3000+ CDs to rip both to lossless and lower-fi for portable players, I can attest that one needs a strategy and a lot of storage and a lot of time for this.

Taking a CD into the car, just a wee bit easier. But trolls gonna troll.

Not really. If you want to play your CD in the car you have to put the CD in the CD player. If you want to rip an mp3 of the CD you have to put the CD in the CD drive on your computer. Same effort, but you only need to put the CD in the CD drive on your computer once. You do need a lot of storage but it's not like storage is expensive. Compared with the over $30,000 your 3,000+ CD collection cost you, not really going to cost much of anything as HD prices are down around $25-30 TB nowadays.

Just approach it as an ongoing project. Whenever you go to play a CD you haven't ripped, you have to put it in a CD player. Might as well click a few times and rip it while you're playing it.

A guy I worked with in '67 had one of those in his car. Worked well and was very cool in its day.
