1998 Infiniti I30 Sedan Touring 4dr Sedan


Review

I bought the car in 2014 with 150k miles. It now have 160k. Within 1 year I went to the mechanic 1time to add freon for a/c and 10 months later to fix both axles and alternator @ $400. I took the car from dallas to atlanta twice. Dallas to Houston and to austin. I have always done oil change on time and checked antifreeze and the car has always taken good care of me. Beside a 1996 toyota camry that I previously owned this is the best car I've ever had.

Review

I bought this car as a "go betweener" when my WRX died on me the second time because a shady mechanic shop j went to. I paid $2500 for this car with 127K miles and only expected to keep it a few months but it has really grown on me and is super reliable. Only things I've replaced in the 15 months I've owned it are a radiator for $110 and the O2 sensors for $130. Not bad for a car with 140K miles on it. She starts right up everyday and I plan on keeping her for a long time since I'm enjoying the "no car payment" life. I would highly recommend buying one of these used from model year 1996 to 1998. I see them for under $3K all the time and would make a great first car as well for teens.


Best Features

Nice leather. Smooth transmission even with 140K miles on it. Enough power to pull out in traffic.


Worst Features

Suspension is a bit mushy. CV joints must be replaced every few years as with any FWD car.

Review

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.
128,000 miles.
Has anyone experienced this with
their auto with such low mileage?
going at about 55 mph a grinding sounded and a power
loss started.
I was able to drive at lower speed
but the transmission appears to be troubled.

Review

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!


Best Features

My family has had three infinitis in the past and all three have been "lemons." One was brand new at purchase and had nothing but problems from the start. The next one was 2 years old straight off of the lease return it was certified and had nothing but problems. The one I bought was 7 years old and it has been a problem ever since I got it. I can't wait to get rid of it!


Worst Features

make it reliable!
