2001 INFINITI I30 Touring 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I read reviews before I bought this car, and it seemed like a safe choice. All scheduled maint. was provided by the dealer but at 80K the problems began and haven't stopped. MAF sensor, 2 alternators, driver's seat motor, O2 sensor, another problem has just popped up and it's sure to be another. $1,000. Low price is not worth the thousands spent in repairs, not to mention it has left me stranded 3 times in 3 years.


Best Features

Interior and trunk space.

Review

Very reliable, but bad mileage (19/21). Suspension can be slightly squirrelly. Engine is great; way better than the variable cam Toyota V6.


Best Features

Engine.


Worst Features

Car's been disco'd but mileage is wretched. How about a 5 speed?

2001 INFINITI I30 Touring 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

purchased 1 yr ago at 117,000km. now at 130,000km. had to replace alternator. CEL comes on and off telling O2 sensor is bad. car pulls good when you floor it but during normal throttle, car feels heavy and big. turning circle is very big. fuel economy isn't great. regular can be used but premium recommended. Very good on highway cruising. long list of options but the material quality isn't up to acura/lexus. doesn't have MIST wiper operation that sweeps only once (even civic has this feature). need to turn on the wiper and turn off for occational wiper sweep. Trunk space is HUGE. interior space is HUGE as well. Standard HID is good but need more brightness.


Best Features

BOSE stereo. Huge trunk, one touch open/close sunroof.


Worst Features

well, it's already discontinued but some lacking area to mention. MIST wiper operation. better paint quality, brighter/better quality HID. smaller turning radius.
