Rear wheel drive!

Vehicle: 1997 Infiniti J30 4dr Sedan (1997.5)

Bought my J30 with 98000 miles on it. The black paint on this car is superb and the leather seats, oh the leather... on the car was in like new condition. This was the first car that I've owned with rear wheel drive and let me tell u, I will never buy a fwd vehicle ever again. Replacing parts can be a little expensive on this car but if u have any mechanical skill the repairs can easily be done urself. Unless it's a major problem never take this car to the dealer for repairs.

Vehicle: 1997 Infiniti J30 Touring 4dr Sedan (1997.5)

My Gold J30t is my third. I hit the wheel well of a truck exiting a lot perpendicular to my direction. Totaled my '95 but she totally protected me. This car is built like a welter weight boxer-rounded, firm, athletic lines. Women say that my J30's sexy lines and cozy interior warm and cradle them, evoking a sensuality rare in today's cars. She is comfortable on the highway and her engine emits a quiet growl when accelerating, like Serena Williams' aggressiveness on the court. Luxury-Sport is an apt description. I give her the normal maintenance she needs, plus some extras. Next is a set of chrome 17" rims with 235/45 shoes and an iPod doc. She's classy, sassy, and deserves every bit.
