The early bluetooth spec had very low audio quality. It was only good for phone calls. I have several mid-aught cars that have BT only for phone calls.

I use auxiliary in ports on those cars + a Tunai Firefly to bluetooth audio into the car's stereo system. I've found that even if the car didn't come with an aux in port, some enterprising soul has come up with a way to hack one in.
