Default Replacing CD Player - 98LE (#34230)

Greetings:

I may have to replacing skipping CD player. It's 5 years old & skipping.
I've tried compressed air, cleaning CD's etc, but ultimately I may have to
replace it.

Toyota wants $315 for the player (not incl labor). If I go to Circuit City
or some such place, I can't get a CD player to integrate with the existing
radio and tape player, already in the car.

So I guess I've got two options. Pay Toyota $315 + labor or replace
everything - radio, tape & CD.

Other suggestions?

Thanks -

L

Sure - call the U.S. repair center for the CD player maker (probably
Fujitsu Ten or Panasonic), check the web for address and info; or use an
independent repair center such as Factory Car Stereo Repair, Inc.

I replaced my old Toyota player (knicknamed 'skippy') with a new Kenwood
(KDC-MPV7019) MP3 player. Paid $200 for the unit and $45 to have it
installed and it's been amazing. The sound quality doesn't even compare
to the old Toyota player and it has yet to skip a single time in the six
months that I've had it installed. I burned four CD-R's with a total of
about 850 MP3's of my favorite tunes, which could take me across the
country and back without ever hearing the same song twice. I can't
imagine anyone today buying a new CD player that doesn't play MP3s. Good
luck.

P.S. - A good web site to check out with lots of info on Car MP3 CD
players- www.highwaymp3.com
