my 1998 I30 - I had wheel bearings replaced on both front wheels and the next time I drove
car my transmission seems to have a problem.
Has anyone experienced this with
their auto with such low mileage?
going at about 55 mph a grinding sounded and a power
I was able to drive at lower speed
but the transmission appears to be troubled.

I bought this car about 5 years ago and have had nothing but problems. I bought it with about 110,000 miles on it and thought it was a great car after doing some research.
The stereo is broken and the volume nob is worthless.
The starter was replaced after it wouldn't start. The battery was then replaced after it wouldn't start again. I had to replace the alternator.
All within the course of five years. The ABS (airbag) light started to blink a couple years ago and I can't figure out what the problem is.
Recently it won't start. I had it checked by a mechanic & he searched the whole car and can't find the problem. Unreliable car! Too expensive!

I purchased my 1998 I-30 in 2002, as a used car with 40K miles on it.
I now have 297,600 miles on it. Outside of normal maintenance such as tires and brakes, I replaced the alternator once and the battery once.
I change the oil every 3000 miles or as close as possible.
It is the best purchase I ever made (and trust me, I have purchased some dogs over the years).
I wish I had another just like it.

I have had not one, but two infiniti i30 sedans. My first a 1997 i30t, which I bought with 80,000 miles for $7000 cash in 2004. My wife and I drove it to 175,000 miles in 2010. The only thing I replaced was the starter! The second was a 98 i30 base model I bought with 105,000 miles for $4200 cash in 2007, I traveled a lot with it and took it to 160,000 miles and I'm still driving it now. We sold the 97 earlier this year. But I am still driving the 98 at 161,000 miles. Ironically the only thing I had to replace on it was a measly starter! Both cars ran as good from day one to last day I drove them. (one of them was earlier today) this is one of the best and most reliable cars ever made.

I am far from the kind of guy that would write a review, however after looking at the things other people had to say regarding their experience, I wanted to share mine as well. I originally leased the vehicle in 98, and went over my yearly mileage because it was so fun to drive. I had a freakish accident which caused a small fire under the hood (alternator) that happened within the first 6 months of the car, but it was fixed and I have had no major problems at all. I took the car in for regular maintenance which added to the overall longevity, but other than that; no problems.
