2011 Hyundai Equus: CD Players

June 20, 2011


This weekend I felt like going old school with my music. So, I listened to some CDs that I haven't loaded onto my iPod.

This coincided with my friend buying a dirt cheap regionless DVD player before the manufacturers stop making them. Some companies have stopped producing DVDs and it's only a matter of time before the DVD player goes the way of the 8-track. He has a lot of movies in this format and wants to be able to play them on something.

It got me to thinking about when car manufacturers will stop putting CD slots in cars. In the rare occurrence that we find a new car with a tape cassette deck, we act like we discovered dinosaur bones in the car. Most manufacturers now assume you will listen to music on your iPod or similar player, or use the car's hard drive (which are also falling out of fashion), or just listen to the radio.

So, what's your best guess, how long do you think manufacturers will continue to put CD players in cars?
