or saw cut was probably put in the concrete to allow for a controlled crack while the concrete shrinks during the curing/drying process. Now that the concrete is 3 years old, and is in a controlled environment, it shouldn't expand or contract much anymore.
I would lay the tile so it spans over the crack, and use a latex modified mortar.
Good Luck!
