I'm guessing here, but that sounds like marketspeak for "has an auxiliary input". I'd expect to see something like "MP3-capable single CD player" if it actually played MP3 CD's.

Car-manufacturer-installed MP3-capable drives still seem pretty unusual - even when they are made by a company (like Alpine) that offers the non-OEM version with MP3 support, the OEM ones seem to be missing that feature.
You are right. I just proved the CD player on a 04 coupe can't play MP3.

I can't seem to find where the aux input is. I wonder if it exists.
