1996 INFINITI I30 Touring 4dr Sedan


I have had two '96 I-30t's. Got the first one with 45k miles on it. Five speed transmission. I drove that one to 132k miles. At one point, a transaxle pulled out of the transmission with no warning. No other problems other than a knock sensor replacement and the speedo stopped working because of something in the transmission. First car was totaled (but the car kept me safe, accident not my fault). I found another black '96 five speed 500 miles away, flew there to get it. That's how much I like this model. At 160k miles, new clutch and clutch cylinders, CD player kaput, plus the CV boots and transaxles had to be replaced. Giving this car to my daughter soon.

Best Features

Five speed! Interior is roomier than the new ones. Very reliable car.

Worst Features

More direct control of AC (and a more powerful AC). Changeable air filter for AC would also be nice.
