    I was VERY disappointed and upset when I realized as I was frantically looking at my dash on my new mazda that it does not have a cd player. I was in the middle of listening to an audiobook and was really enjoying it. Now I can’t do that anymore! Not everyone is streaming video and I had no idea that some newer cars do not even have them! I might have chosen another model had I realized this.
