Edmunds' Expert Review

Though unremarkable and largely forgettable, the I30 makes good with its comfortable interior and low price tag.

vehicle overview

Our biggest complaint about the previous I30 was that it was too similar to Nissan Corporation's own affordable Maxima. This year, however, Infiniti's svelte sedan is completely new, inside and out, offering more power, extra features and updated styling -- and making it more distinctive than ever.

Perhaps the biggest news is the 3.0-liter, 24-valve aluminum V6 engine that makes 227 horsepower -- a 20 percent increase in power over last year's engine. Engine efficiency is increased as well. Molybdenum coated pistons help reduce friction while triple-forged crankshafts increase accuracy and weight balancing. The I30 gets computer-assisted, speed-sensitive power steering that automatically adjusts to driving conditions, providing more feel when needed for parallel parking, and more control at high speeds. The multilink beam suspension has been enhanced with softer bushings for a smoother ride. Sixteen-inch aluminum alloy wheels now support P215/55R16 all-season tires that offer lightweight performance while directing cooling air over the brakes.

New styling elements include Xenon High-Intensity Discharge (HID) headlights (standard on Touring models only) which expands the area of illumination while minimizing glare to oncoming traffic. The driver's side windshield wiper is 4 inches longer this year, a streamlined rear-window design provides a more panoramic view, the front grille has been redesigned, and heat- and UV-resistant tinted glass keep occupants cool inside.

Available in two trim levels, Luxury and Touring, both Infiniti I30s come equipped with the new engine. Luxury models come with antilock brakes, power leather seats, express-open sliding and tilting glass sunroof with sunshade, air conditioning with climate control and rear heat ducts, 16-inch alloy wheels, AM/FM/cassette stereo with single CD player and seven speakers, cruise, cell phone pre-wiring, and tinted windows standard. Step up to the Touring model and Infiniti adds a viscous limited-slip differential, sport-ride suspension, aero-composite high-intensity fully automatic headlamps, 17-inch silver alloy wheels and P225/50VR17 A/S BSW tires.

Inside the I30, consumers will find seating for five adults, eight-way power-adjustable driver seat with lumbar support, two-position memory and automatic entry/exit system and a four-way power-adjustable passenger's seat. A height-adjustable center armrest, dual-level storage compartment, classy analog clock, one-touch open and close power windows, three front and two rear cupholders, and a power rear sunshade are also included.

Other innovations for 2000 include a Bose compact woofer, active front headrests, which automatically move up and forward during a rear-end collision to protect the head and neck, and a Homelink Universal Transceiver, which allows you to activate your house lights and garage door from inside the car.

Last year's Infiniti got you great service, extra convenience items, and one of the best warranties in the business. This year, the I30 will give you all that and much more.

LTR gone bad,03/03/2008
Car purchased new. At 50000 car began to self destruct, power seat, alternator, SES light, new brakes at 55K, transmission slip, engine ping. All service at dealer. At 60K SES light on again, brake calipers bad. > $4000 in repairs in 2 years. Trade in at dealer on new MSRP $40000 = $5000 before today's 2 grand. Am I still a happy customer? NO! Like the new G35, but would I buy another Infiniti? Doubt it.
Reliable, Fast, Fun

Great car. Have over 250,000 miles on it but I have only had to replace the catalytic converter at about 240,000 so very reliable great buy!
Overall Great Car
rloggia,01/10/2012
I recently got this car from my dad with 168,000 miles on it, and those miles were put on aggressively; my dad has a lead foot. He traded it for an M37. There are some minor issues: oxidized headlight lenses, slightly rough transmission, a few burned out bulbs. A few months ago the radiator fell out of its rusted housing, but not the car. Besides that, there have been no major issues. The interior is still in great condition, some signs of wear on the drivers seat. Some rust issues; in the top of the wheel well and underneath the car (not noticable unless you're jacking it up) but thats my dads fault for not washing off road salt. If you take care of it, it will take care of you.

Update 4-9-2018- Now I'm on my 7th set of rotors/calipers. Terrible investment and I'll never buy another Nissan/Inifiniti. Update 9/29/16 - Terrible investment. Update 4/12/16 - I'm on my 6th set of rotors and calipers. They are JUNK! This car goes through rotors and calipers in 2 years. I'll never buy another Nissan/Infiniti Very good looking car. I purchased it new. We noticed that the car does not handle well. When you go into a turn, it feels like the front tires are beginning to slide. I purposely drove it into a corner unusually fast ( plenty of recovery space) and the car does slide badly. I took it back to the dealership and they said it was perfect. Well, if that's perfect, don't expect me to purchase another infiniti. We have replaced the brakes including calipers and rotors numerous times. Calipers freeze up often. It will stop on a dime, but having to replace the brakes every 15,000 to 20,000 miles is beyond excessive. I'll never purchase another Infiniti/Nissan.

Should I lease or buy a 2000 INFINITI I30?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
