I have a 2001 and the switch that moves my seat forward and back just died. Kind of a problem when it's stuck in the "away" postion to let me out of my car. My legs don't reach the pedal now and I have to use my tippy toes! A technical Service Bulletin was issued for this: Vehicle: 2001 Infiniti I30 Nature of Defect: SEATS:FRONT ASSEMBLY:POWER ADJUST Bulletin Number: ITB00067B Bulletin ... Read More

Just to eliminate brake squeak, I suggest to replace stock brake pads with Ceramic brake pads. The pads come with the car is Semi metallic ones. Their dust really make squeaking noise. Dealers do not carry ceramic pads. You can have them at brake shops like Sears. Try this link: http://auto.sears.com/Infiniti-I30-SATISFIED-PRO-CERAMIC-VS-DISC-BRAKE-PAD-SETS/- Product.htm?catalogId=10623&productId=2008447&N=200742836+2000
My 2001 I30 has had 4 remanufactured alternators supplied by Nissan/Infiniti installed since May and a new starter. After leaving the car sit for 3-4 days it won't start w/o a jump. What else could possibly be wrong here?
2001 Infinit I30. Events - Drove to gas station and got gas. Tried to restart car and got nothing but clicking sound. Tried jump starting and after 20 minutes of trying it started right off. Used my electronic hood latch to open trunk to put jumper cables back, and the engine died immediately. After another 20 minutes of trying, was able to jump start again. Again, it started right up. When ... Read More
Hi,I just bought 2001 Infinity I30 and was given only one pair of key.Can I make additional one in Home Depot or I have to go to Infinity Dealership?Thanks
Hi,I just bought 2001 Infinity I30.Driver side seat is not moving back and forth...Did somebody have problem like this?How easier to replace the motor?
I have te same exact problem right now and they cant locate the problem it would be really helpful if you got back to me and let me know what you did to fix the problem, thank you.
replaced brakes with new infiniti pads at 70,000. Front pads were the same but rear were changed due to my Vin#. some spacer clips were attached toward rear of old brakes but the new pads seemed a little longer to make up for the difference. "Rattle clips" that were on backside of original brakes were taken off and put on new brakes and installed. Now theres a clanking metal rattle in ... Read More
Has anybody changed an alternator on an 2001 infiniti i30? The mechanic wants to charge me $400 to put in a remanufactured one and I would rather buy one for $120 and do it myself ifnI am not going to take 8 hours to do it. If you have any tips I would appreciate it.
It's one of the two speed sensors. I had the same thing.
Hi there, I am looking if someone has had the same problem as me with their infinity. I have a Infinity I 30 2001. Sometimes when I am driving at about 40-50mph my car starts slowing down and the RPM goes up to 6000 and it makes a lowd noise. I have to turn the car off and if it is turned back on within a couple of minutes it works ... Read More
I have a 2001 infiniti I30. My "service engine light soon" has been going on and off intermittently for several years. At one point I got it checked and the code was P0420 (related to faulty emissions). After some research it seems this simply needs to be reprogrammed at the dealer as it is a glitch and does not represent an actual emission problem. The light is now off for several ... Read More
Hi, I test drove a I30 t today and liked it .. nice ride a luxurious car ...did see some of the problems with rotors dealer said he wud get it fixed .....the cars run around 75,000 miles but was quite and smooth and handled well ...is there something specific i should be looking out for? some kind of warranty nething at all ...

(2002 Infiniti i35) Same thing just happened tonight on my clock. Bulb went out. At night it looks like a big GAP on top of the radio when that bulb is out. How frustrating! Super nice car and the clock doesn't even light up. I guess you have two options..take apart the whole dash board, gear shift and radio (while risking dropped screws and cut wires) or risk breaking something by ... Read More
Hi all, just a quick problem, drive a 1997 infiniti i30. Had it for about a year and no problems. However this morning I heard a noise I hadnt come across yet. When shifting from 1st to 2nd or 2nd back down to first I hear this high pitched squealing noise, almost like something being wound-up. Take it to my local firestone and without running a single check tell me it ... Read More
I just replaced rear break pads for a 1999 Infiniti I30. Pep Boys had what I needed in stock. I'm not sure if the part # is the same for a 2001 I30 but the # was PR540-C ceramic pads. Go to Pep boys.com for a complete listing of parts.
Can someone give me info on replacement front and rear pads for a 2001 I30..Mechanic told me that part # does not correspond to cars application..and we may have to go to Infiniti for pads..Anyone have any part #'s or manufacturers name for aftermarket applications??
I had the same problem with my 2001 I30 and Infiniti paid all but $163. They called it a good-will repair. I didn't think that I should pay any, since this is a documented Infiniti problem...but what do I know?
the details of the tsb are as follows: maybe you can google it. classification: EL02-023 reference: ITB00-067a 2001-2001 I30 and 2002 I35; drivers seat will not move forward or backward Date June 4, 2002 Applied vehicles: 2000-2001 I30 (CA##) 2002 I35 (CA33) at this point i have spoken to the dealer and consumer affairs, both say they will not help. i am interested to find out if this is a repair ...

I have a 2001 I-30 at the dealer today with the exact same problem. I bought it certified used from authorized dealer and although I am outside the original 60K warranty; the cert used warranty added 12 months and 12K miles to the original warranty. They still say its not covered! I ended the day by calling Infiniti consumer affairs. They will call the dealer tomorrow. Where did you find the ... Read More
I just bought a 2001 Infiniti I30 and want to know if preium gas is needed? What happens if I put regular into the vehicle? Will it cause any engine damage?
I purchased a 2001 I30 about 2 months ago and so far I love it. I upgraded from a 95 Accord with over 213k miles on it (my odometer stopped working roughly 2 years ago--go figure) Anyhoo.. I was in the market for another Accord or an Altima but ended up with this baby. It was a company fleet car so it was impeccable inside and out with all the Infiniti ... Read More

I have the opportunity to buy a 2001 I30 Touring with 28K miles for $22K. Do not have any experience with the Infiniti, but have read that it is rated very "reliable" by CR. Is definately luxurious. Any feedback from i30 Touring Sedan owners? Thanks.
I purchased an I30 with only 4500 miles, but the car had a rebuilt title. Can anyone tell me how the company views a rebuilt title, I would think that the warranty is void but the company would handle any recall issues, Can anyone comment. Second Question, I am experiencing a whining noise after the engine is turned off. I believe it is the motor mounts, as I saw a TSB ... Read More
Has your transmission fluid ever been changed? I've never needed to try it on my 2001 (25,000 miles), but my past experience on a do-it-yourself basis is that you end up only changing some of the fluid, not all of it. Most dealerships (and independents) have a machine that uses a tube which is inserted into the tranny dipstick tube and supposedly pumps out all of the fluid, including the fluid ... Read More
Look up the April 23, 2001 Discussions on wind noise remedies. Methods to eliminate excessive wind noise are discussed there for the 2000 Infiniti I30.
I just purchased a 2001 Infiniti I30 and the rear subwoofer is making the sun shade rattle like crazy. I dont play the bass loud or listen to the music blasting but it continues to rattle. I took it to the dealer and they said there is nothing they can do. Has anyone else had this problem. It mainly occurs with talk radio or high bass music. I cant take it ... Read More
I would think a Nissan dealer would be capable of servicing an Infiniti I30. The 2001 I30 has the same engine as the Maxima SE and Nissan dealers would likely have access to Infiniti technical data, including TSBs. I know a lot of parts for my Legend had Honda part reference numbers on them, just as the oil and air filters for my I30 use Nissan parts numbers. But I never ... Read More
psriniv, I think you misunderstood what i said. I was never offered such a ddeal. i was simply looking for opinions on whether or not 21k was a resonable price. There is no way in HELL, i'm paying anything above 22k for a base '01 I30 - especially considering the crappy Infiniti sales figures (based on Automoive News and FightingChance data), the 2500 dealer cash, and also the serious competition including ...

thanks bdruland for your adv. I did check out the 2000 and 2001's coming off lease. I am in the east coast- central VA. Not many dealers around. THe price for the 2000 and 2001 is in the range of 22- 24 k with around 21k miles (average) on them. WHich is out of my present budget. However,I found an used I30 t with 26 k miles with the local infiniti ... Read More
See if you can find 2000 I30 program cars coming off lease. I understand Infiniti of Lisle (Chicago) are paying $18,250 which means you could probably buy one for around $19-$20K depending how good you negotiate. Don't know where you are located, but would guess Infiniti dealers in your area may have similar deals. Big difference in 2000/2001 I30's as opposed to 1996-1999. I think you would be much better off ... Read More
Infiniti currently, at least in the NorthWest is not offering any customer rebates or incentives on the 2001 I30. They are offering dealer incentives, you may have these confused.
Hi Guys, I just landed a terrific deal on a new 2001 I30 with Heated Seats and Traction Control packages for $26,375. I will be picking the car up on Tuesday and I'd like to know if there is any place online to shop for Infiniti after market products. Thanks for your help.
I currently have a 2001 I30 that I have been waiting for over 45 days to get an intermittent dash problem fixed. Was told that the part was on back order and would not be in for 30 days. Has anyone out there dealt with Infiniti regarding a buy back or replacement? I love the car but do not feel that 2 months + is appropriate for a repair to take ... Read More
Can anybody recommend someplace where I can get sharp-looking floormats (rubber mats and plush mats) for a 2001 I30? I'd prefer mats that have the Infiniti logo on them, if mats like that even exist. Clair Parts carries nice mats for other makes, but apparently doesn't carry mats that are designed for Infinitis. Thanks in advance.
I bought a 2001 i30 from Enterprise with only 11,000 miles on it 6 weeks ago. 2 weeks into my purchase I realized that in the front of the car, on both sides of the pretty silver grill, are pit marks that have rusted over- there are about 10 of them on either side- over the past 4 weeks i see 3 new pit marks-(not yest rusted) it seems to me ...

Hi again, 3.2 Tl was never on my list. From the beginning I have only been looking at the 2002 max or the 2001 I 30. I did not appreciate the infiniti dealer marking up the price by $500 in the name of the wood kit. THats the reason i called up the acura guy. I do prefer the spaciousness of the I30 for my 6 yr old kid. So, do ... Read More
Has anyone heard anything about whether the $1,500 dealer incentive on 2001 I30s will be continued past 8/31? Also, is there an expiration date for the $1,000 rebate for previous Infiniti owners, or is this an ongoing promotion?
Hi Guys, I'm in the process of buying the I30 L and would like some feedback on what to expect to pay for a new 2001. I know the new I35 is coming out in October and that Infiniti just ended a rebate program in August. I would imagine that they would start another rebate offer soon. Any help from my friends out there would be appreciated.
Thought I would tell all you Infiniti I30 owners, I30t owners especially, that you have some really nice looking cars. The design of the I30 and I35 are very clean and don't need spoilers to add to their appeal(although the spoiler does look nice on them.) The I30t was dark blue with beige interior, NICE!!!!! I think Infiniti did a great job with the I30. I envy you people.
Hmm, did you have the dealer change the tires? Sometimes the tires are causing this problem. jfb7-To answer your question, first need to find out how much the dealer is charging. It is because right now you can buy a new 2001 I30l for around the same price that you mention (27k). It is because Infinit is offering $1500 rebate on the I30 now. The build qualtiy is very solid in ... Read More
I have I30 (2001) that I bought last year and unfortunately few days ago, while driving on highway, rock hit it and damaged the windshield. The damage is like a star and it can be covered by a dollar bill. A repair company told me that it is not repairable ( since it is a star like ) and it needs replacement. If I get it replaced, my concern is that ... Read More
Hello, I have Infiniti I30 (2001) that I bought almost a year ago and love it very much. Unfortunately, two days when I was going on highway, a stone came and hit my windshield and damaged it. Do you have any suggestions as to what I should do? If the damage is repairable, should I get it repaired or go for replacement. If I go for replacement, should I go for ... Read More
I ordered the parts from the www.nissan.cc website that someone listed here. The total of the parts was about $17 cheaper shipped from them versuses getting them from Infiniti dealer. They are the same parts too, Infiniti admitted that the I30 and Maxima use the same protector part. They still claim the part isn't needed on 2001 models. Well, I should have my parts early this next week and either I ... Read More
I just spoke to Beverly Hills Infiniti salesman Howard Brewer. When I mentioned someone bought a new I30 for $25,380, he said it was a pre-owned 2001 model, not a brand new car. He then quoted me $27,595 for an I30 with sunroof, $26,595 for previous Infiniti owners. I had mentioned that I was aware of the various customer and dealer cash incentives which should have made your deal possible. It ... Read More
I am about to purchase my first Infiniti, a 2001 I30 certified pre-own with 14k miles for $26,600 plus TTL. The car is coming out of a lease program and I want to know if I should purchase for $850 the extended warranty beyond the basic 4 years coverage. I do typically keep a vehicle 5-7 years or so. Is there any financing out there better than 5.9% at the dealership? ... Read More
Bought our 2001 I30L in April. I really don't think that Infiniti is going to blow out the I30 prices. I suspect that the I30s ordered by the dealers decreased in amount when the dealers found out about the I35. Why would they stock up when they know a hotter model is coming? I really believe that Infiniti will hang tough on the price of the I35 and sell the rest ... Read More
You are probably not aware of this, as I wasn't until coming across it on www.maxima.org website. Nissan/Infiniti decided to leave off a part on the 2001 models as compared to the 2000 models. This part is a protector or also called a splashguard that should be in front of the fuel line in the drivers side rear wheelwell. It was on the 2000 models but Nissan decided it wasn't needed ...

Go to this link- http://www.nissannews.com/infiniti/pr_events/2001/newyork/i35/index.html It had all the info. all the I35. I had an I30t Midnight Blue/Biege with nav. and sport package. Now is the good time to buy an I30, most of the people can buy the can between $500 to $1000 below invoice. The new I35 will have a 260 hp versus the 227 hp in I30. I was going to wait for the I35, too. But ... Read More
Test drove a 2001 330 cxi...all wheel drive BMW. To make a long story short, the car was not "more" fun to drive than either my 97 I30t, 00 3.2 TL or 01 3.2 CLS. In fact, I found "fun-factor" of the BMW comparable to the TL/CL. The CL has more power. The I30 is loads of fun as it is. I dont see the hype over BMWs these days when ... Read More
First time I have attempted to engage in a Chat format. My question is: Can I use Regular gas in my new infinity I30. It is suggested to use only High Test. If I do use regular gas and there is no knock, will there be any damage to the engine? Thank you for your response
Yes mud guards are listed as an option on the sticker for a 2001 I30. However in the northeast every single 2001 I30 ordered with Heated Seats and traction control comes with the 6-disc CD and mud guards. It does not matter if the dealer wanted them or not. Trust me Infiniti will not let us order a heat and trac I30 without throwing in mudguards and a CD.
Was just talking to the dealers over at Dorschel Infiniti in Rochester yesterday, and they had a few used 99's on the lot for about 22K. Each one had about 30K miles on it, and mine, being a 97 only has 30K miles. He gave me the typical "I could definately use your car" talk, but I wasnt serious with numbers just yet! Besides, he was playing around with me as ... Read More
I had a similar experience with Ford Motorcraft batteries. Just make it past the warranty. The maintenance free batteries either last forever or die young. I think Nissan should have had the courtesy to replace at least one battery. One of the reasons I bought an I30 was lack of customer service from Ford. As a matter of fact, my son bought a 2000 Accord EX V6 coupe, my daughter bought ... Read More
Hello to all. I'm new to this BB, but I've been reading it for months. I'm considering buying a new I30, and have learned a lot from all of your experiences. Thanks for all the 'good stuff'. I'm interested in the 2002 I35, but I would jump on a 2001 I30L if a really good deal. Yesterday's CARSDIRECT.com price was $27,392 for the I30L w/heated seats and dest. Sound good? Does ...

Most cars lose ~30% of their value as soon as they are driven off of the lot. After that, however, their depreciation curves flatten considerably. If you were to drive your $30k 2001 I30 off of the lot and then turn around and attempt to re-sell it to the same dealer 5 minutes later, I am willing to bet a major artery that you would not get more than $22k for ...

It seems that some 2000-2001 I30 owners have wind noise while others do not. My 2000 I30 has had the "wind noise" problem remedied by the judicious application of 5/16" to 3/8" square black rubber (of sufficiently high density) that is sold by all the popular hardware stores. It is placed on the rear doorframe openings (and not on the door itself) at the following locations: 1. an 8" piece located ... Read More
Does anyone have an idea about what incentives Infiniti might give in order to move the current I30s? I'll be ready to buy a new vehicle early July and I’m hoping that Infiniti will lower MSRP by at least $2k... wishful thinking? I really want a 2002 I35 but I might have to settle for a 2001 I30 because I need a larger vehicle before our first born comes out the ... Read More
Good question. Nobody has said the I30 is going away. Is the Acura 3.2TL going away because they came out with the 3.2TL-S? Infiniti may do away with the I30T and make the I35 the hot sport model. How important is the extra horsepower? It didn't make that much difference to me. How much do you think they will discount a 2001 I30 once the I35 comes out? I don't think ... Read More
I will be in the market to purchase this November. After all my research have decided on Infiniti. But now what is conventional wisdom regarding whether to try and get best deal possible on the 01 I30 or to kick in more dough and go with the restyled? changed? Improved? I35 model. Any thoughts on pricing? Is the thinking that, initially, it will sell for MSRP without discounts,or will there be ... Read More

Well, the 2000 I30t's I test-drove at the beginning of last year did not have the new TCM, and you can read about my disappointing experience if you scroll up to my last mail. The 2001 I30t I test-drove (and the different one that I ended up purchasing) had a build-date that was later than what was listed in the TSB, which means that it had the new TCM already in ...

Even the passat got the rear mirrors heat, Is anyone know when infinity puts this option in the car? can we upgrade the 2000 or 2001 I30 to mirrors heated parkage.
Does anyone have any info on which dealers in the LA area are selling the Infiniti I30 luxury, either 2000 or 2001, at good prices? Also what would be a good price....from what I am reading on this page it sounds like 27,000 would be an extremely competitive price. Where do you reccomend I go in LA? THanks....
Thanks for the help, The car I am looking at is not black, but a metallic silver, it is in their showroom. From what I am hearing you guys paid around 27,000 for a 2000 I30 without the nav, but this car does have the nav, and the new 2001 is 30,700 w/o navigation. So I still dont know if I should go for this, or not. I am going to ... Read More
Having sold many 2000/2001 I30's since their introduction in 1999 I have yet to have a single customer complain about wind noise. Reliability wise not only is the I30 just as good but with a timing chain instead of a timing belt it may even be more reliable than the toyota V6. There is currently a $1,000 owner loyalty bonus for former current Infiniti owners/lessors who are buying an I30/QX4/Q45.
i was at the Buffalo Auto show the other day and Infiniti had a Midnight Blue 2001 I30 on display. That color really looks nice on the car. mhammy... $30 is a nice price! To update you on my "service" visit: I woke up at 8:00 am to take the car over there. i drove as slowly as i could, so that the car would be semi-cold when it was there. ... Read More
I mentioned in an earlier posting that a friend of mine just bought a 2001 I30t for a little over $30K. In talking with the sales staff, they indicated they had only a couple of I30t's left and were pushing the I30L's which they had a bunch of. With the new model coming in a few months, they are advertising in paper a $26,900 price which is not bad. From what ... Read More
I sound "like an Infiniti plant used to down play legitimate consumer concerns"? What does that mean? I dont know exactly what you mean, but it sounds like you think I work for Infiniti. HA! What a joke...i love how people like you come onto boards and try to persuade other readers that those who criticize someone else's opinions are actually "secret supporters" who work for the car company. Well, Infiniti ... Read More
The main purpose of my post was to report the differences in dealers...I didnt really post what they did since my vehicle is a 97, and most people here have 2000's (or even 2001's now). However, I will still list what was done/checked: 1.) Blower motor (for A/C or heat) made a loud flutter noise on lower fan speeds, mostly in the summer time. There is a TSB for this for ...

I just picked up a 2001 I30 Luxury yesterday morning. Who else has had problems with the wind noise from the rear window? Has anyone gotten a dealer and/or Infiniti to own up to it? Better yet, has anyone gotten their "windtunnel" fixed? I did not hear the wind noise from the rear window on my earlier test drive of another I30. And no, the Bose wasn't cranking at the time, ... Read More
To pathy57: Look closely at the 2001 I30 before you leap. Like I said earlier, the manufacturer is aware of the wind noise problem, but doesn't know how to resolve it at this point. There may have to recall some cars. Make sure you listen closely when you test drive one. Don't have the radio or A/C on during the drive. Check out the security system as well. The security system ... Read More
Anybody know for sure whether the 1997 Infiniti I30's have ELECTRONIC motor mounts or just silicon filled ones? I understand that the current 2000/2001 I30s have electronic motor mounts. Do the 1997s have them or no? Thanks...
I am caught up in a dilemma whether to go for an Infiniti I30 or a Lexus ES300. Had anyone driven both ? Which is superior in quality and service ? I have taken the test drive for both. The lexus seemed to be more quiet than the Infinity. But then the Infinity had a better pick up and felt very sporty. The leather interiors were far superior in quality than ... Read More
I have a '97 I30L coming off lease this month so I have been actively shopping for a new car. My two previous cars were a Lexus ES300 and a Mercedes E300. I recently test drove the 2001 I30L, I30t, Lexus ES300 and GS300, Audi A6 2.7T, MBZ E320, and BMW 530i. Right up front I want to state that the 3 German cars are fabulous. In rank order, my preference ... Read More
Right on roxie1...Life is too short to be crying about your car all day long. I caught myself doing the same thing when I first bought my 2001 Luxury Infiniti. I was nit-picking the car to pieces! It is a solid car for the money and you do get a lot of value. I still have a few gripes like the tranny is not as smooth as it could be (on ... Read More
A buddy of mine has a corvette convertable. You hear everything in that car. The stearing will shakes at higher speeds. But hey, it's a Corvette! That thing turns on a dime with no body role at all. When I went shopping for a car, I might have gone with a sports car like my friend. Hey, I am single, why not? I am also in sales so a two seater ... Read More
A couple of weeks ago I posted a few minor problems I had with my 2001 I30. They were as follows: 1. Jumpy transmission--or at least inconsistent. Reved up, dropped down abrubtly, etc. 2. Base vibration in cab from what I thought was the subwoofer 3. Some loud pops in the cabin, mainly from what I thought was coming from the front dash plastic over the clock (w/o nav system). Well, ... Read More
I've been screening vehicles for a while now and I'm real close to deciding on the I30 - but there is one thing that keeps stopping me. I live in Northern VA and the only nearby dealer doesn't appear to have a very good reputation for sales or service. If I do buy one- its fairly certain it will be from a dealer farther away -probably in Maryland. That begs the ... Read More
I looking into a 2001 I30 and I wanted to see if anyone has had had any experience with the Infinity dealers in the eastern PA area. There is Main Line Infinity, Willow Grove Infinity, Holman Infinity and one in northern DE that I don't remember the name of. Any input on your experiences at these places would be great.
To Negelkerk... how are you coming up with the $2k difference between the 300M and the I30? (difference before $3k rebate). My research is showing that a fully loaded 300M invoices for around $31,024 while a 2001 I30t (without navi)invoices for around $30,900. I'm comparing equal equipment on both cars (like sports package, upgraded stereo etc.). Thus, the only difference I see is the $3k rebate for a 2000 model year ... Read More
Good morning pethelman and Roy, My I30 is 1998 with 26000 miles on it. Just to update you on the idle adjustments. The three times it was adjusted I did feel the difference in the way my car was idling. After my first visit when I left the dealer I did not even feel that the car was running that how smooth it was, but few days later it started to ... Read More
I've had my 2001 I30L for 3 weeks now and simply love it. One minor thing that I just discovered today is the front seat belts. When you click out of your seat belt and it goes flying back into its little side holder, it often slams into the side moldings and scuffs it up. The top cloth part gets hit, and the bottom plastic part even more so. I have ... Read More
No i dont live in the Spaulding lakes area...but they do have some really nice homes there! Anyway, I have owned the following: 1992 Mitsubishi Diamante, 1997 Infiniti I30t, 2000 Acura 3.2 TL, 2001 Acura 3.2CL-S. All great cars...Diamante was the best car I've owned/driven (I think I was lucky to have a car with low defects...must have been a "Monday" or "Tuesday" car). Interior/exterior styling was great, and it was ... Read More
I'm still trying to buy a 2001 I30 Luxury but was told today that the Xenon Light option, which was new for 2001, has been suspended and is not available. Previously, I was told that the Traction Control option was only available if you also bought the Navigation option and the Heated Seats option (I knew about the Heated Seats option as it's on all the web sites). I'm having trouble ... Read More
I'm in the process of ordering a 2001 I30 Luxury. The options I want on the car consist of Xenon Headlights, Traction Control, and Mud Guards. Edmunds and Kelly Blue Book list these as options except that a Heated Seats option is required for the Traction Control. I hardly need heated seats in San Diego but had accepted this requirement even though the invoice price is $374. Now, my problem is ... Read More
I just bought a 2001 I30t (with sports pack. and CD changer) from Tustin Infinity (80 mi from SD). First I got a quote from their internet fleet manager Al Desko. He emailed me a very good offer (less than any internet dealer you can find). I tried to call 3 other south cal infiniti dealers and it's not even close. I went in Sat. and met my sales Pat Carter ... Read More
I am considering buying a 2001 I30 or an 2001 Acura TL and am leaning toward the I30 as memory seats and interior size are important to me. However, I am a little concerned about the long term reliability of the I30. I intend to keep this car for 7-8 years and put perhaps 150,000 or more miles on it. I know of several people who have had Acuras (especially legends) ... Read More
I just bought it last thursday, 9/7/2000, and I love it. It's the new Royal Ruby Red color with the graphite interior, Luxury model--simply gorgeous. It has the Xenon lights, which are awesome. I've researched this car for 3 weeks now and have contacted 7 dealers in the Northern California/Bay Area. Over 3 hours at the dealer and some intense negotiating, I think I got a great deal at $28,485 +T&L. ... Read More
Just hit 1000 miles on my 2001 I30. I really like this car but would absolutely love it if it was as quiet at 80mph as my 92 Diamante that I turned in. Would changing from Goodyear to Michelin tires reduce road noise? Company's can sign up for Nissan/Infiniti Vehicle Purchase Program to offer an employee benefit. Got car for Invoice -3.8% (holdback) +2.5%. That's it.
My wife and I just bought a 2001 Infiniti I30 at Northside Infiniti in Houston. The entire process was a delight. Drive out was $28000+TT&L and this car is loaded. Would have paid about $1000 less for Acura, without Sun roof, and it would have been a 2000 model. The staff at Northside were great. The Acura folks were an embarrassment. If you're looking for a great luxury car that should ... Read More
