The first few years were great but soon after the warranty of 4 years hit that's when the quarterly trips to the over priced Infiniti garage started as the check engine light seemed to turn on as if on a timer...I still have my '96 Honda Accord EX given the new Infiniti prices for the G and M...I am going back to the H...Honda.
2001 Infiniti I30 Touring 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
This was my first "luxury" car since the '80s. After raising my kids, I wanted a car that I could drive for hours without feeling cramped. I love it. Lots of bells and whistles, but I bought it because of it's reliability rating with Consumer Reports. And it has proven incredibly reliable, including when I accidentally run over curbs!
Power windows, doors, side mirrors,seats, sun roof and trunk. I love that both seats in the back can be folded down thus expanding the trunk space to accomodate long loads.
Better mileage, but with 6 cyclinders that may not be possible.
After a harrowing Volvo experience, I wanted a reliable car. I bought a certified preowned I30 for the 100k warranty. Today, I traded the car-- without ever having to use the warranty in 97000 miles. I just replaced the brakes at 90k. This has been a fantastic car for me--plenty of power, comfort and space. It was hard to find a replacement.

My I30 has an exterior look of "your father's Oldsmobile". However, it also has excellent acceleration and braking, a smooth powerful engine, superb interior controls, awesome BOSE sound, and rock-solid reliability. It was rated a Consumer Reports automotive "Best Buy" for a reason. I'm convinced that the only reason that it doesn't cost alot more is that Infiniti marketing is so bad.
