1997 INFINITI I30 4dr Sedan


The 1997 Infiniti I30 is for the person looking for a safe bet. The looks aren't aggressive and the maintenance is INEXPENSIVE. There isn't a timing belt to worry about snapping on you as in other fine Japanese cars. This runs on a timing chain. The spark plugs are EASY to replace VS other Japanese cars where you have to remove the top intake. The car's gas mileage isn't close to what Edmunds shows on the specs, it's a lot higher! Try 25 to 28 mpg! SMOOTH ride, like you're in a Lincoln. Powerful V6 to get you through traffic. Great car if taken care of.

Best Features

BOSE sound system, cheap oil change (4qts of oil opposed to 5 in similar cars), easy to get to rear spark plugs, Leather is excellent, doesn't get hard or cracked (115k miles so far).

Worst Features

They already improved items in the new I30 (more Horsepower, better looks).
