If you have a different brand of MP3 player, the cheapest solution uses an adapter that plugs into your cars stereo cassette player. But most new car stereos prefer CDs, so a cassette adapter may not be an option. Another method is to get an adapter cable that plugs directly into your head unit of the mp3 player. In order to go with this option, your car stereo needs a spare input, such as an unused CD changer port. If you are not sure if you have an input available, you can check the owners manual for your vehicle or stereo or look up your stereo or vehicle information online.
