Open the door so we can get some "new car smell", Fred.

Congrats! I recently got a 2007 Toyota Rav4 (with third row seats!) and it comes with an aux input and 12V power outlet in the center console. Plus the JBL speaker system isn't half-bad. \:\)

The really funny thing is that they have a 6 CD changer built into the dash as well. I guess there are enough people out there that still don't do MP3 or similar.
Just like when they had cassette players AND cd players in car audio systems. My parents vintage 2001 has this type of system.

As mark pointed out you could always burn 6 MP3 cd's and throw them in the player.

I believe that is the same system, less the 6 disc changer, I have in our Rav4, it is bass heavy and bloaty sounding so I end up turning down the bass a few notches.

My 2001 Civic has a 6 disc changer and a single disc player. I'm thinking hard about pulling the changer so I can hook up the aux input. At least, that's what I assume is wrong with the aux input.

That's funny... my wife and I have been looking for a new vehicle for the last couple of weeks and I'm asking everyone if the aux in is standard. When we leased our Mazda5 4 years ago we just missed getting one standard, I believe they went standard in Mazda's 3 years ago.

I too am looking more forward to that feature than the new vehicle itself. Until my kids are grown and out of the house I don't imagine I will own a vehcile I actually 'want' to drive.

Yea, you're not the only audio nut out there. The Hyundai actually had both the aux in and a usb port, a much better solution, but I got a better price on the Matrix, it gives a much smoother ride, and there were some other features like fold flat seats that really fold flat that I really liked.

Jay, that was my impression of the bass in a Sienna (comapny vehicle) I recently drove. I bet I am looking for a woofer solution to replace the sloppy bass before the year is out.
