Purchased new 2001.
After some O2 and Mass Airflow sensor failures during 60K warranty period, no repairs until 148,000 miles (starter) and 160K m (radiator).
Now at 178Km and car drives like it has 50K on it. I could not be happier with it.
My 21 yr old son wants me to replace it (with G37) and retire the I30 to him!
This car has been a 10+ on a 10 point scale.
