Most domestic CD players will only play CDs written in "Audio" format; CDs containing MP3 tracks won't work. The car you are buying will cope with CDs containing MP3 tracks.

No problem at all.
I understand that to mean that it has a CD-player with auxiliary inputs for ipods and mp3 players...so CDs are fine.

Either way though, it will still be able to play ordinary CDs.
