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


Bought the car in '05 from Team Nissan in Oxnard, CA. They failed to inform me car had been in an accident. (Hood didn't have VIN, etc) Put 80k on it in four years, but didn't have it running for 18 months of that. Replaced wheel bearings, two new alternators, VSS sensor, starter, ignition, radiator... Fine when you punch it, but very heavy otherwise. '05 Altima V6 tromps this car with offline and during-driving quickness(but with only 23 more hp). I like the exterior and interior, but leather seats cracking, clock wand rattles, wind noise from back window, paint fading horribly. Wanted an Infiniti from day one, only enjoyed it for a year then it became a $ black hole. F You, Team Infiniti!

Best Features

Timeless styling, rear sun shade, great BOSE system, very comfortable & roomy.

Worst Features

Mechanical reliability after 100k, paint remaining decent, better stock rims, lighter feel.
