Using FM transmitters in urban areas

I've tried two FM transmitters (both at home and in my car). One worked inside my house, but not in my car. The other didn't work in either location. The first was a 4-frequency transmitter, the second was a nearly-infinate-number-of-stations transmitter. The main problem seems to be that living and driving in an urban area (metro Detroit) there aren't any open frequencies that the transmitter was able to connect with. Those frequencies that seemed to be open and available just resulted in static from my MP3 player.
My husband and I have hooked up a stereo wire to the home stereo system (it's an old one, so we're doing some real creative connecting, but it mostly works, albeit with some static). But I'm at a loss for what to do in our cars (without buying a new car stereo, which I'm not interested in doing). One car has the cassette player, so we could get the cassette-connecting device. But the other car has a CD deck, no cassette, and that's the car we're more likely to use on road trips.
Any suggestions, tech gurus?
