My car stereo has a USB slot and worked with my iPhone 4. I'm pleased to say the iPhone 5/lightning connector also works just fine

It will not transmit car video. Even the Lightning adapter won't do video. This cable will work with your car if two things are true:
1) Your car has a USB plug and specifically supports iPod/iPhone use through that connection.
2) Your car is not a BMW or other exotic that supports the obscure "iPod Out" video/audio interface.
If your car has a wire coming out of the console or glove box that ends in a 30 pin connector, you'll need the lightning adapter.

It works flawlessly with my JVC head unit.

If your car audio/video head unit has a USB connection, the new cable/iPhone 5 will work fine. If you are using the headphone connection to your car audio/video unit it will also work without issue.
Finally, for those with audio/video head units that connected directly to the original 30pin connector, you will need the adapter from apple or an adapter from your head unit's manufacture (if/when made available).
Hope this helped.

Unfortunately not with all of them. The new cable does not support ipod out protocol that a majority of stereos use.

It works perfectly with the Sync system in our 2013 Ford Flex. Well, as perfectly as anything works with this buggy system! I've also used it with a Chrysler Uconnect system and it worked fine.

Audio (e.g. Pandora & iPod) works fine. This cable does not support video however (e.g. Netflix & GPS navigation).

I cannot speak for all cars with iPod integration, but it definitely works with the 2011 Honda City.
