Best car i have ever

by on
Vehicle: 1995 Infiniti G20

I purchased this car from the 2nd owner 5 years ago at 182K. I am now at 250K and have driven the car without any out of the ordinary issues. I have owned a number of other cars, and this is by far the most reliable car every. I wish there was a cup holder, but other then that its the perfect balance of performance, luxury and economy.




1995 g20

Vehicle: 1995 Infiniti G20

Bought this car with 50k miles. Wife tried to beat it to death by driving it for her med sales job in a fairly aggressive fashion for almost 80k miles - and she insisted on putting in low grade gas the entire time -against the owners manual advice. That nearly killed it! It ran terribly, knocking, rattling, pinging, rough idle etc. Now that I've inherited the car again, it's had good 88 or above octane gas and regular maintenance for the last 30k miles and it's running excellent! I've wanted to upgrade to a BMW 3 series but for now I'll stick with this car until it dies, which is probably not any time soon. Minimal repairs required, no major items.




Utah g20t

Vehicle: 1995 Infiniti G20

I bought this car when my college son turned it down and have enjoyed driving it for the past 4 years. I've driven it between California and Colorado and it has yet to give me problems, even with 161,000 miles. Yes, I wish it had more power and a cup holder, but I don't want to trade it even though an AWD or 4WD would be nicer during the winter snows of Utah. It fits just like a fighter jet, which I also operate (hence, I can go fast in something else to satisfy my adrenalin rush for speed). All in all, a great little car.




Fun, economical & reliable

Vehicle: 1995 Infiniti G20

Bought this one with 145k miles but I think the ODO was rolled back. It may have 170K miles on it. I have had it for 4k miles. I am not sure what has been done to the car in terms of maintenance or repairs, but it runs very strong. It needed a CV joint - $150. A lot of fun to drive, sporty and for the money, I am very happy. Bought it to be my daily driver versus my big Ford Expedition. Getting 27 mpg city driving!! It is black on black and the interior is like new, so the quality of the leather, rugs and other components are very good. Paint is still holding up in the Georgia sun - loosing a little of the clear coat on the roof and spoiler. Overall I am extremely pleased.




Still running strong

by on
Vehicle: 1995 Infiniti G20

When I bought the car at about 100K the clutch needed to be replaced. The car is just shy of 200K right now and drives as strong as the day I purchased it. It has had a few quirks - like the ABS light comes on and I have to pop the ABS thing out and then back in and it will be fine for six months. I have to put in a new gasket but all in all the car just won't die! I want a new car now just for the mileage but don't think I will sell this because the resale is so low and it would be hard to find something under $2000 that could even compare. I expect this car will get another 50 - 100K without any problem.

Vehicle: 1995 Infiniti G20

Bought in 2000 with 67k miles. Now has 200769+ miles. The bad: a couple of big repairs, transmission and clutch at about 130k, also cvboots/axles at around 185k. Tachometer not working, driver-side window only goes down about 80%, sunroof motor retired in 2007, and odometer just broke. The good: the best car I've ever owned (81 RX7, 82 Saab Turbo, 86 GTI, 91 Eclipse GSX, 95 Camry). VERY fun to drive, great handling, not quick off the line, but great performance at 3k rpm and above, quiet, solid, interior still essentially perfect. Good investment to have windows tinted when I got the car. 22-24 mpg city, 24-27 mpg hwy. $50/year DMV registration in CA. I would sell this car to my mom.
