I bought this for my old car and it lasted about three years until I sold the car. It was still going strong so I had no problems with its durability and would probably still be working to this day.
It is an old model so isn't as up to date styling wise as many of the new ones but I think it still looks pretty good. It features different coloured buttons which help them stand out which is good because there are a lot of buttons and this makes it easier to pick them out when driving. I didn't install it myself but had a friend to help me. However he said it was relatively easy to install and that most people would probably be able to follow the instructions and install it for themselves.
The sound quality is very good. I originally had it connected to the original car speakers and then to some additional better speakers and it coped well with both. It has a good security system whereby you can flip the face over and it reveals just a black front. I think it still shows there is something there but it seemed like enough to put off thieves from thinking it was worth while breaking in. The age of the car probably helped that as well! You can also just remove the front if you wanted to be completely safe.
It played my CDs very well and even managed to cope quite well with scratched and dirty ones which is very useful when you store them in the car like I did. This was a very good buy at the time and I think it would still be now. If you are purchasing an older car and it has this CD player in it you won't be disappointed.
Summary: Was very good in its time and do not be put off by it now
