I'd argue that iPod support that has been going for over a decade, beginning with iPods and adopting iPhones, is a pretty good track record.

Combine that with CarPlay being over 5 years old and retaining support, I think your concerns are unwarranted.

Apple is pretty good with supporting things long term.
