Previous adapter wore out, so I decided to try a different one (since my original wasn't that great). This one got decent reviews, so I tried it. Came in the mail, but immediately wouldn't work. My car's tape deck would spit it back out. I manually tried to turn the mechanisms and could tell it was sticking. I could also see inside a piece that would fall out of place. I tried to adjust it and loosen it, but still no go. Wouldn't recommend it.
