A blog about the cars I drive

No CD player for Golf?

In the wake of the Chrysler 330S CD Surprise, I was once again surprised to learn that a tester — this time, a 2015 VW Golf — had arrived sans CD player. Moreover, it appears that no Golf sold in the States can be had with a CD player. First, the Chrysler 300S, now it’s the Golf. Is this a thing? Both cars compensate by including a memory-card slot. And, since every cellphone is a mobile, connected jukebox, CDs may have outlived their usefulness. I’ve dropped a line to my guy at VW to see if I can get some insight about VW’s thinking.
