1998 INFINITI I30 4dr Sedan


Review

Bought this car one year ago from the first owner with 210.K mkiles. Changed valve cover gaskets, very easy, not like in other V6, and just last week changed the front brake pads. Great Bose sound, Needs to use 93 Octane gas but I get 22 miles/gallon in mixed use. Some control like the on/off for the cruise is hiding behind the steering wheel as well as the dash lights control but other that that is a great car. Good to buy used for they do not keep much the value. It's a great car.

1998 INFINITI I30 Touring 4dr Sedan


Review

I bought the car in 2014 with 150k miles. It now have 160k. Within 1 year I went to the mechanic 1time to add freon for a/c and 10 months later to fix both axles and alternator @ $400. I took the car from dallas to atlanta twice. Dallas to Houston and to austin. I have always done oil change on time and checked antifreeze and the car has always taken good care of me. Beside a 1996 toyota camry that I previously owned this is the best car I've ever had.

Review

I bought this car as a "go betweener" when my WRX died on me the second time because a shady mechanic shop j went to. I paid $2500 for this car with 127K miles and only expected to keep it a few months but it has really grown on me and is super reliable. Only things I've replaced in the 15 months I've owned it are a radiator for $110 and the O2 sensors for $130. Not bad for a car with 140K miles on it. She starts right up everyday and I plan on keeping her for a long time since I'm enjoying the "no car payment" life. I would highly recommend buying one of these used from model year 1996 to 1998. I see them for under $3K all the time and would make a great first car as well for teens.


Best Features

Nice leather. Smooth transmission even with 140K miles on it. Enough power to pull out in traffic.


Worst Features

Suspension is a bit mushy. CV joints must be replaced every few years as with any FWD car.

Review

my 1998 I30 - I had wheel bearings replaced on both front wheels and the next time I drove
car my transmission seems to have a problem.
128,000 miles.
Has anyone experienced this with
their auto with such low mileage?
going at about 55 mph a grinding sounded and a power
loss started.
I was able to drive at lower speed
but the transmission appears to be troubled.
