This is good! So, while looking at used cars, I realized that a lot of 2005-2010 era cars are the worst if you want to use a smartphone in your car as its primary infotainment device. They often only come with a CD slot and nothing else. No aux cable in, no tape deck for adapters, no bluetooth, no USB port... I guess you can get an aftermarket head unit, but that costs money...

At least new cars will have something that'll work with 90+% of all smartphones.
